During Thursday night’s Democratic Party debate, Hillary Clinton and socialist Bernie Sanders tore into each other on guns, demonstrating to the nation that neither support the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Sanders, when pressed on whether he would apologize to the families who lost loved ones in the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, said the government should keep guns away from people who don’t have them.
“What we need to do is to do everything that we can to make certain that guns do not fall into the hands of people who do not have them,” he said.
This despite the very clear language of the Second Amendment.
A post at RedState observed:
Let us stipulate up front that Bernie Sanders will say that this is not what he meant to say, and that the everyone will agree he was just talking fast and it came out wrong or whatever. But in return, everyone must likewise stipulate that such niceties as benefit of the doubt would in no way form or fashion be given to a Republican. A Republican doesn’t get to say “that’s not what I meant.” What a republican meant does not matter to anyone. Fair? Fair.
Now, with that out of the way, perhaps you’ve heard the phrase “Freudian slip”? If there is anything that the Democrats want, and wish they could get away with saying, is that they believe we should not be allowed to buy guns in America. They are champing at the bit to say this. They are straining at the handcuffs of polling. They wish it. They don’t want you to own guns. They don’t want guns to be for sale.
I’ll go even further. Democrats are ready to strip all Americans of the right to keep and bear arms, and they’re ready to finish shredding the Constitution of all our freedoms in order to create a watered-down version of the Soviet Union.
