Hillary: We need gun control to fight terrorism

Clinton - Need gun control to fight terrorism

Clinton - Need gun control to fight terrorismResponding to a question by AARP Bulletin, Democrat Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most evil person ever nominated by a major political party to the White House, said gun control for all Americans is needed to fight terrorism, Breitbart.com reported Friday.

The question put to her was: “What would you do to address terrorism?”

Her answer:

Well, these are legitimate fears. I believe that people are rightly concerned about violence. Terrorism is part of that violence, and we have to do the best job we can to keep America safe. So I’ve laid out a very comprehensive plan about taking on the terrorists, going after them where they operate, doing everything we can to take away their territories so they can’t mastermind attacks from afar. But we also have to go after them online because that is where they recruit, radicalize and direct attacks. And we need to do a better job of getting there early, rooting out people who are vulnerable and preventing that from happening.

She wasn’t finished, however, adding:

But I’m looking at violence broadly. … It’s also why I’ve advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loophole—because, you know, it’s not only terrorists we need to be worried about. Terrorism is part of it, but gun violence kills 33,000 Americans a year. … We’ve got to get serious about stemming violence and terrorism in every way we can.

AWR Hawkins observed:

First, California has comprehensive background checks. Therefore, the state does not have a “gun-show loophole” or an “online loophole.” But they did have the December 12, 2015, firearm-based terror attack and the more recent high profile murder-suicide on the UCLA campus on June 1, 2016. The same may be said of Paris, France, which has background checks that are even more comprehensive than those in California. Paris has no “gun-show loophole” or “online loophole,” but they did have 12 people killed in a January 7, 2015, firearm-based terror attack and another 130 killed in the November 13, 2015, firearm-based terror attack.

In short, terrorists will do what terrorists do, regardless of the gun laws.  And if they can’t get their hands on a gun, they’ll use a knife, or they’ll make a bomb.

Hawkins continued, destroying Clinton’s “statistics.”  For starters, he said that “66 percent of the 33,000 deaths cited by Clinton were actually suicides.”

He added:

For example, the overall number of firearm-related deaths in 2013 was approximately 32,888. Of these, the number of accidental deaths was 505, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the number of deaths due to actual “gun violence” was 11,208. Yet when Clinton repeats these numbers, she adds accidental deaths and homicides — which equal 11,713 — then adds the 21,175 firearm-related suicides, rounds the number off at “33,000,” and names “gun violence” as the cause for all these things.

But facts don’t matter to ideologues like Clinton.  Her goal is simply to strip all Americans of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
