On Thursday, a supporter of Hillary Clinton urged her to use executive power to prevent citizens from carrying guns in their cars. Her response: “Amen.”
“We need you to be able to use your executive powers to legislate that you can’t carry guns in cars, you can’t bring cars in buildings that are not assured to carry them,” one person told Clinton during a forum in Hartford, Connecticut.
“We need executive powers to say we will fight for life and not kowtow to the sons and daughters of Charlton Heston,” he added, referring to the former NRA president who made the phrase, “from my cold, dead hands” famous.
“Whoa, let the congregation say, ‘Amen,’” Clinton said to wild applause.
Here’s video of her comment:
The Daily Caller added:
Clinton has focused heavily on gun control during her presidential campaign. She also said last year that she would take executive action to enact tougher gun laws if elected to the White House. That was before President Obama announced a set of executive actions placing restrictions on the sale of guns at gun shows and online. Clinton took some credit for the move, claiming that she spurred Obama into action.
But gun rights advocates have said that neither Clinton nor Obama have offered proposals that would lead to decreases in gun violence. Most gun violence is committed with guns that have been obtained illegally.
To mask the limitations of her policy proposals, Clinton has mostly relied on rhetoric. She’s been heavily critical of the National Rifle Association and other groups that support the Second Amendment.
Clinton has long opposed the Second Amendment and there’s no doubt that as president, she’ll do everything she can to eviscerate the right to keep and bear arms. Now we have video of supporters demanding she rule like a dictator on the issue.
