Hillary Clinton: U.S. needs to ‘rein in’ proliferation of guns

National Harbor, Maryland (CNN) – Hillary Clinton told an audience of mental health professionals on Tuesday that the United States needs to rein in its gun culture or risk a world where insignificant disagreements could lead to shootings.

Asked about the mental health aspects of guns, Clinton said “I think we’ve got to rein in what has become a almost article faith that anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime. I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”

“We really have got to get our arms around it because at the rate we are going, we are going to have so many people with guns everywhere fully licensed, fully validated,” Clinton said, painting a picture of a country where small annoyances could lead to shootings.

Clinton, whose comments came during the question and answer portion at the end of her appearance, said because “we are living at a time when there is so much external stimulation and some much internal confusion in certain people,” it would be a bad idea to let people “go to bars with guns, let them go to schools with guns, let them go to church with guns.”

Referencing a shooting earlier this year where a 71-year old retired police officer shot a 43-year old man texting in a movie theater, Clinton said people thinking they “have the right to defend themselves against the gum chewer and the cell phone user by shooting the person” is reminiscent of countries she visited “with no rule of law and self control.”

But Clinton also gave an olive branch to gun owners, adding “I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns.” […/]

The small annoyances she referred to were chewing gum or talking on a cell phone while at the theater. Out comes the straw men. She contends these incidents will happen on a wide scale. But what does happen on a hourly scale are drive-by’s and shootings in Chicago, a gun free zone. That never enters into her straw man arguments.

So somehow gun ownership translates to less self control and rule of law, to Hilary. But she doesn’t offer to explain how that works. With her premise, evidently less guns equals more self control and greater rule of law. Again, the murder rate in Chicago could disprove that.

    WOW, once again the Alinskites show their tremendous ability to talk out of both sides of their mouth. What a bullshit statement that was by Hitlery. “I’m anti-gun, but I’m pro-gun.” Dat dar is what I call a wiener.

    I notice she didn’t mention the “knife” slaughter perpetrated on those poor school students, but that doesn’t fit into their talking points now does it.

    A take of mine is she doesn’t like “concealed” guns per her statement, so I guess she’s fine with guns that are not “concealed.” You reckon I’m right Bull or just dreaming and she screwed up her statement leaving that opening??

    Just when we’ll get rid of O’Bastid we’ll be rolling out the carpet for Queen Hitlery. Would that be from the fire into the frying pan or the other way around?? I guess either way we get burned badly!

        Isn’t that the story with all so called anti-gun liars?? Barry has the biggest gun totting security in the history of presidents as well as The Gaffer, but we shouldn’t have guns. Harryass Reid, Pouting Pelosi have their own guns and an army protecting them. Guess cause they believe they’re special.

        They’re special alright. There the special exception to their bull shit double talk. And now here comes Hitlery walking both sides of the fence. Do you reckon she’ll be surrounded by an army totting guns to protect her? Ya’ reckon they won’t be concealed?? What a crock of bull shit…

      You could be dreaming but wow did she leave herself wide open…in more than one way. Do you remember when she tried to make herself into a gun friendly candidate? (was it duck hunting or something? Well there was a pistol involved, I think)

    ‘Guns are a big worry, they kill people, and need to be regulated up the kazoo but even then are still a big problem.’ – While abortion needs to be a protected sacred right. Murder in the womb is worth fighting to protect. (and don’t dare ‘over regulate’ abortion)
