Hillary Clinton’s Best Quotes on the Second Amendment

In a recent email blast from NRA Exec. Vice President Wayne LaPierre, he made one thing very, very clear about the upcoming 2016 presidential election. Hillary Clinton is an existential threat to our right to keep and bear arms.

“Our worst fears can be summed up in three words: President Hillary Clinton,” said LaPierre. “Let’s stand and fight. Let’s do it now. Her campaign is running full speed and you and I and NRA need to be at full strength.”

Skeptics will wonder though whether LaPierre is simply blowing smoke or if Hillary really is anti-gun incarnate.

Well, based on what Hillary has said in the past and the fact that her husband Bill, former president, presided over the last federal ban on commonly owned and widely popular firearms and accessories, it’s pretty evident that Clinton is an anathema to the Second Amendment.

Below are some of her past statements on the Second Amendment, courtesy of Reason.com which published an article, “Hillary Clinton on Guns: Not a Big Fan.” In my opinion, these are the “best” or most telling quotes in that they reveal her true beliefs on gun ownership in the U.S.:

July 1999: “If you have guns in your home,” Clinton tells middle school students on Long Island, “tell your parents to keep them away from you and your friends and your little brothers and sisters.” Addressing the National Education Association in Orlando, she says, “It does not make sense for us at this point in our history to turn our backs on the reality that there are too many guns and too many children have access to those guns—and we have to act to prevent that.”

June 2000: Clinton endorses a bill introduced by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) that would require licensing and registration for handguns. “I stand in support of this common-sense legislation to license everyone who wishes to purchase a gun,” she says. “I also believe that every new handgun sale or transfer should be registered in a national registry, such as Chuck is proposing.”

January 2008: Asked during a Democratic presidential debate whether “you’ve backed off a national licensing [and] registration plan,” Clinton says, “Yes.” She avers that “we need to enforce the laws that we have on the books” but adds, “I would also work to reinstate the assault weapons ban. We now have, once again, police deaths going up around the country, and in large measure because bad guys now have assault weapons again.”

May 2014: “I think again we’re way out of balance. We’ve got to rein in what has become almost an article of faith that almost anybody can have a gun anywhere at any time. And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”

June 2014: “I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation,” Clinton says while promoting her memoir on CNN. “We cannot let a minority of people—and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people—hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.” She says she favors “background checks that work” and twice refers erroneously to mass shooters with “automatic” weapons.

Short of saying she want’s to ban all guns everywhere, it’s pretty much all there. That is, at one point or another throughout the past few decades Hillary has expressed every anti-gun position known to the gun community, e.g. a desire to enact registration schemes, licensing, the notion that there are “too many guns,” an urge to ban so-called “assault weapons,” the myth that police deaths are increasing because more law-abiding citizens have black rifles, the idea Second Amendment supporters are “terrorizing” the masses, the lie that “automatic” weapons are being used by mass killers.

Unlike Obama, who had a somewhat murky background on gun control while running for president, Hillary’s thoughts and beliefs are well known and well documented. LaPierre is correct, she is a nightmare for our right to keep and bear arms. No doubt about it.

    “Unlike Obama, who had a somewhat murky background on gun control while running for president…”

    Nonsense. Anyone who had done even the slightest research on Barack Obama would have KNOWN he was one of the most radical gun haters in American political history. The president of the Illinois Rifle Association, who tried to reason with that maggot when he was in the Illinois Senate, stated flatly that he was the most intractable, insanely gun-hating politician he’d ever met and that he simply refused to even listen to anyone unless it was someone advocating draconian gun control measures.

    Obama is scum of the earth and should have been impeached in his first term. Actually, he never should have been elected to begin with and only was because Bush was hated so vehemently.

    I think what is really happening is the government has screwed up on crime control now that they have totally lost control they are trying to take the eyes of the people off their failings and focus it on us the citizens and blame it on us because we own guns make us their scapegoat and Americans are falling for it . We have the masters of lies and deception and who control the media trying to save their butts.

    Jefferson was truly seeing the future as the two party system teeters closer and closer to tyranny. They have control of the media to point of convincing the masses that you only the have option of voting for a rpub or dumocrat. They are the same animal. They get fat on greed and power. The only difference between them is the dumocrats would prefer a socialist police state and the rupubs prefer a fascist police state. God bless the USA. We need some divine intervention about now.

    2nd Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
    Requiring a permit is an infringement. Forbidding certain types of weapons is an infringement. Barring weapons from certain areas is an infringement. The Second Amendment IS my concealed carry permit.

    Hillary hopes you have forgotten. Have you????
    Hillary Clinton has been telling America that she is the most qualified

    candidate for president based on her “record,” which she says includes her eight years in the White House as First Lady – or “co-president” – and

    her seven years in the Senate. Here is a reminder of what that record

    – As First Lady, Hillary assumed authority over Health Care Reform, a

    process that cost the taxpayers over $13 million. She told both Bill

    Bradley and Pat Moynahan, key votes needed to pass her legislation, that

    she would “demonize “anyone who opposed it. But it was opposed; she

    couldn’t even get it to a vote in a Congress controlled by her own party.

    (And in the next election, her party lost control of both the House and

    – Hillary assumed authority over selecting a female Attorney General.

    Her first two recommendations (Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood) were forced to withdraw their names from consideration, and then she chose Janet Reno. Janet Reno has since been described by Bill himself as “my worst mistake.”
    – Hillary recommended Lani Guanier for head of the Civil Rights

    Commission. When Guanier’s radical views became known, her name had to be withdrawn.
    – Hillary recommended her former law partners, Web Hubbell, Vince Foster, and William Kennedy for positions in the Justice Department, White House staff, and the Treasury, respectively. Hubbell was later

    imprisoned, Foster committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
    – Hillary also recommended a close friend of the Clintons, Craig

    Livingstone, for the position of director of White House security. When

    Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of up to 900 FBI

    files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by

    White House staff, both Hillary and her husband denied knowing him. (FBI

    agent Dennis Sculimbrene Confirmed in a Senate Judiciary Committee in 1996 both the drug use and Hillary’s involvement in hiring Livingstone. After that, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office, after serving seven presidents for over thirty years.)
    – In order to open “slots” in the White House for her friends the Harry

    Thomasons (to whom millions of dollars in travel contracts could be

    awarded), Hillary had the entire staff of the White House Travel Office

    fired; they were reported to the FBI for “gross mismanagement” and their

    reputations ruined. After a thirty-month investigation, only one, Billy

    Dale, was charged with a crime – mixing personal money with White House

    funds when he cashed checks. The jury acquitted him in less than two

    —- Another of Hillary’s assumed duties was directing the “bimbo eruption

    squad” and scandal defense:
    —- She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit.
    —- She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the

    appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars

    of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica

    Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.
    —- Then they had to settle with Paula Jones after all.
    —- And Bill lost his law license for lying to the grand jury.
    —- And Bill was impeached by the House.
    —- And Hillary almost got herself indicted for perjury and obstruction

    of justice (she avoided it mostly because she repeated, “I do not recall,”

    “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” 56 times under oath).
    – Hillary accepted the traditional First Lady’s role of decorator of the

    White House at Christmas, but in a unique Hillary way. In 1994, for

    example, The First Lady’s Tree in the Blue Room (the focal point each

    year) was Decorated with drug paraphernalia, sex toys, and pornographic

    ornaments, all personally approved by Hillary as the invited artists’

    depictions of the theme, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”
    – Hillary wrote “It Takes a Village,” demonstrating her Socialist

    – Hillary decided to seek election to the Senate in a state she had never

    lived in. Her husband pardoned FALN terrorists in order to get Latino

    support and the New Square Hassidim to get Jewish support. Hillary also

    had Bill pardon her brother’s clients, for a small fee, to get financial

    – Then Hillary left the White House, but later had to return $200,000 in

    White House furniture, china, and artwork she had stolen.
    – In the campaign for the Senate, Hillary played the “woman card” by

    portraying her opponent (Lazio) as a bully picking on her.
    – Hillary’s husband further protected her by asking the National Archives

    to withhold from the public until 2012 many records of their time in the

    White House, including much of Hillary’s correspondence and her

    calendars. (There are ongoing lawsuits to force the release of those

    – As the junior Senator from New York , Hillary has passed no major
    legislation. She has deferred to the senior Senator (Schumer) to tend to

    the needs of New Yorkers, even on the hot issue of medical problems workers involved in the cleanup of Ground Zero after 9/11.
    – Hillary’s one notable vote, supporting the plan to invade Iraq , she has since disavowed

      “Foster committed suicide” There are enough irregularities in the evidence that it should raise doubts with anyone who has the known facts. There was very little blood near his body, the gun was over 6 feet away from him. Those are just two that I remember off the top of my head. The significance of the lack of blood is that head wounds bleed spectacularly. Remember the video of the Viet Nameese shot in the head by the north’s soldier. If he had the gun in his hand and his finger inside the trigger guard, it’s unlikely that it would have left his hand at all. I’ve put down livestock animals and they don’t move after being shot in the head other than down onto the ground. As I recall there were other irregularities but I can’t remember what they were at this time.

  • TPSnodgrass April 20, 2015, 12:59 pm

    No Clinton, on either side, has ever told the truth in public nor in private. They are two sociopaths, incapable of telling the truth.
    I don’t think she’s going to run, and her alleged “candidacy” is merely a smoke screen for the Soros-puppet-master, to get Himself a new “Manchurian-style candidate”. HRC is merely buying time for her pal Georgie, another lowlife Communist who sold his own people out for money during WWII.
    I don’t believe anything HRC says, never will. She’s as much of a confirmed liar, as her “husband” is. With both of them, it’s always about the money. They are shameless 1%-ers.

    Hillary said, “We cannot let a minority of people—and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people—hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.” Yet, this is exactly what she advocates when it comes to the LBGT community. Small businesses are being terrorized when it comes to their Christian beliefs. Anyone can say what they believe about LBGT lifestyles and BAM! they are set upon by the LBGT community and their minions with the intent of ruining businesses, losing jobs and death threats. That is terror. Being able to possess and carry firearms for self protection is NOT terror, it is a basic human and civil right.

  • Mr. C April 20, 2015, 11:14 am

    Maybe just maybe, she will have to drop out of the race, due to a revelation that during a recent doctors visit the doctor found a brain tumor, while doing a colonoscopy. And her ideas on gun control are as ridiculous as the crap she put forth on obumer care when she said we, congress, needed to pass it to examine it. Well the only time you hear that is from a proctologist doing a rectal exam that tells you to PASS IT so it can be examined. Gun control, yeah, pass it then examine it. RIGHT!!!!

    Meanwhile HRC sells her political influence by laundering millions of dollars through her “foundations.” Would she ever stand up to “big pharm”? Would she ever stand up to “Planned Parenthood”? Would she ever put the National interests of the United States before China? She went to China around 1996 to supposedly campaign for women’s rights. Instead China got MFN status without any environmental, human or economic concessions what so ever. She is a fraud like her husband and Al Gore.

    First let me say I own more than ten guns so Im not against guns,but enouh is enough. In this country just follow the money. When that awful thing happened in Sandyhook every one said they would take our guns so what did we do, go out and buy more guns and ammo too. Who made the money? The NRA probably had record members,gun sells went through the roof and you couldnt buy ammo. Now gun sales are down and ammo prices are higher they once again say they are going to take our guns. Does the NRA need more money? Do gun sales need a boost? When ever a gun show was in town you couldnt get around there was so many people. You do know if you buy a gun there it goes through the Federal data base and they know you have it so what did that acomplish if they are going to take them. We as americans are so stupid that if there is a rumor that they are going to take our guns we go out and buy more. Wake up and see who makes the money and if they give guns to Ted Nugent anybody can get one. He is the main reason I wont join the NRA, if he is one of there spokesman and he can get a gun,then yes we do need better laws.

        Do you really believe that you would be able to own those guns if not for the NRA? Why would the US not become like Britain or Australia? What do you then do to preserve the 2A?

        I cringe when Ted Nugent starts to talk but that would never keep me from supporting the NRA. You said nothing in regard to HRC. Is she preferable to Ted Nugent?

      • Mike Redden April 20, 2015, 11:59 am

        I rest my case again. The NRA doesnt let me keep my guns the second amendment does. The NRA does it for the money not because they are our guardians, again follow the money. Do you think they would do it out of the kindness of their hearts if there was no money involved. Are they a non profit org. That does this for free. Whenever someone tells you they are looking out for you that is a red flag. Who are they really looking out for? If they were really coming to take our guns do you really think we could do anything to stop them,if they really wanted to. Im a real american that dont scare easy. We as americans have always fought for our freedoms and we would do it again,but not one single time in my life has anyone in the government said not one thing about taking our guns. If they have show me the bill that was introduced. Do some research and see it is a scam on the people to have us buy more guns. I think we would never let them disarm us as americans we would fight to prevent that and not depend on some group to do it for us. We ourselves have to protect the rights and stop hoping someone will do it for us. No bills have been introduced to take anyones guns and where were the NRA when an assault rifle ban was introduced years ago? Did they stop it,no they didnt. Again if we thought that why would we go out and buy more guns why wouldnt we just hide what we got and be discrete. Who makes the money?

        • Joe April 20, 2015, 2:00 pm

          You had no case to rest and you avoided my questions. I asked you what would keep the US from becoming like Britain or Australia and you offered nothing but a half baked jingoistic diatribe on the NRA. Yeah, the NRA needs funds, what a shock. In one sentence you say “no bills have been introduced to take anyones guns and where were the NRA when the assault rifle ban was introduced years ago?”

        • Kane April 21, 2015, 9:37 am

          Just to follow up on the many wrong statements Mike Redden made, the NRA is a 501(c)4 organization with a 501(c)3 political fund. I am not a tax accountant but do know that 501(c) organizations are non-profit organizations which MR did not know. There are a slew of bills at the federal and state and local level to confiscate legally owned firearms. Maryland has a bill to confiscate registered firearms, Missouri has one bill the UN Office of Disarmament Affairs has a detailed plan. Let’s not forget New Orleans and how that turned into a confiscation by the Federal Government. I lived in Oak Park Illinois that banned handguns and Chicago that banned all guns. Chicago grandfathered registered firearms but went to you door if the registration lapsed. Diane Feinstein who admits she would confiscate all firearms if she could get away with it has a Federal Bill to confiscate legally owned firearms. MK is ignorant of the basic facts and yet makes wrong statements with confidence and arrogance.

          The “assault weapons was introduced years ago” was the probably the ban of 1994 that was enacted with a 10 year sunset provision. The Democrats were slaughtered losing control of both the House and Senate. Bill Clinton gives credit to this swing of power from a political backlash handed out from the NRA. The sunset provision was supposed to be a political boost for the Democrats in an election year but that did not work out that way thanks to the NRA. Gun owners like MR can be our own worst enemies, ignorant, complacent and cheap.

      Mike, you are right about a lot of what you say. The fear mongering makes everyone gobs of money: NRA, gun makers, ammo makers, etc. I don’t like that about the NRA. And you are correct, there’s not been one major piece of national legislation pass Congress in recent memory that’s infringed on our 2nd Amendment rights. I do however, see a need for an organization like the NRA (of which I’m a member). Special interests rule Washington and don’t think for a minute that the gun control folks wouldn’t take advantage of there not being an organization like the NRA. I support their lobbying efforts nationally and locally and it’s locally where we see the gun control crowd trying to gain a foothold. I do wish the NRA would tone down the rhetoric some though. I also would like for them to more strongly acknowledge that there’s lots of folks who are Democrats, like myself, who are strong, staunch supporters of the 2nd Amendment. By not doing so, they risk alienating a very important block of members and potential members who could make a huge difference for protecting the 2nd Amendment from inside the Democratic Party. For the record, I oppose any law that would lessen my rights to own a firearm. As a matter of fact, current laws are too strict and non-sensical in several areas and need to be changed. As far as Hillary Clinton, I strongly disagree with her gun control views, but there’s more at stake for our country than just this one issue. I tend to vote for the strongest candidate regardless of party, but in recent years have voted more for Democrats than Republicans because of the lack of strong traditional qualified Republican candidates and the party moving further to the right and Christian political activism. All three have harmed the conservative cause tremendously. I’m sure there are plenty who disagree with me.

          David K

          To be more accurate, it was Mitt Romney “why we have Obama”. As ML stated, and I second, we would vote for qualified Republican candidates. I used to be a Republican, back when the party stood for limited government and fiscal conservancy . That’s not what the GOP stands for anymore, evidently, as evidenced by Mr. Romney, a trust-fund, offshoring, tax-loophole-working, cultist, who gained the GOP nomination in 2012. I stared at my ballot in disgust, then wrote in “Colin Powell” for POTUS. Which, given the current crop of crooks, creeps, and Canadians from both parties, will probably happen again.
          Clean up your party, and weed out the whackos, weirdos, and wallahs. Until then, the GOP is “why we have Obama”, and it would be a damn shame if the GOP becomes “why we have Hillary”.

          • ML Baker April 21, 2015, 12:41 pm

            Well said and spot on Damon. The party has nothing to offer me currently except its platform on 2nd Amendment rights. And, that’s not enough right now for me to vote for their candidate for President. There’s more to consider than just that. Sorry you feel that way about my comment David K. Unfortunately, our political process is portrayed by the media and special interest groups and viewed by most people as being two dimensional, that is, they tend to promote/vote one issue in an election without trusting the process. The Senate, House of Representatives, and President must all reconcile their differences on any piece of legislation before it can become law and then usually vetted by the Justice system. For that reason, the process is at least three dimensional if not four or more. There are many, many issues to consider, not just one, before selecting a person to vote into any public office. I trust the process because it’s our process and I try to look at the big picture instead of through the microscope. It will be interesting to watch and learn over the next 18 months.

            So please tell me what the Democrat Party offers your that is so much better? What has that party done for you over the last 20 years to improve your life. What profound ideas have they brought forward to improve the live of Americans? You say that the Republicans stood for limited government and fiscal responsibility but since they no longer do you will vote for the party that never has? Only the mind of a true liberal could work that way…thanks for leaving the party.

      I have to say, as a gun owner and stout libertarian, fear mongering certainly bolsters support on both sides, good and bad. I think the NRA is at times controlled opposition, for that reason I support Jews Against Gun Control. They are an organization that really knows the price we pay for gun control. They aren’t religious either, despite what their name suggests. Look them up and support them!

    When was last time cop killed with an assault rifle…what are stats? Bet many more killed with handguns…illegally obtained…in hands of felons and people under 21.
    Maybe we should outlaw any one on welfare or in government paid housing from owning or buying a gun.
    Search all Section 8 housing nationwide for weapons…prosecute all violators to the fullest extent of the law. That would be all residents of the house. And cut off their benefits…for life.
    Sounds reasonable and common sense to me. LOL

      The last time that I checked, there have only been TWO reported homicides using a LEGALLY-OWNED full-auto weapon, since 1934. One was a police officer’s assigned weapon.

    • Wes April 21, 2015, 12:57 pm

      I am pro-gun and a veteran, but I think your argument is absurd. Anyone on welfare or gov. paid housing?! Are you insinuating that all people that are low income “illegally obtain” firearms?! If I didn’t know any better, it would be realistic to say you are trying to attack minorities which makes you a bigot. You really should be more specific about your argument. I have fellow veterans that are in government paid housing because they are no longer able to work due to missing limbs and the such defending your right to even own a gun…are you implying that they should be thrown in jail for owning a firearm?! And there are veterans as well as our other fellow Americans that just don’t make enough or end up in low income situations and you believe all of them belong in jail for owning a firearm? Do you really think it is only the “rich” that support the second amendment let alone the constitution? Just because a person is low income does not make them un-American. Criminals are what ruin things, they are the ones obtaining illegal firearms, they are the ones perpetrating gun violence and acts of crime, not under paid Americans. And criminals aren’t race specific, neither are law abiding citizens. You should really think before you talk.

      • Mickey August 17, 2015, 2:58 pm

        Wes, I think L Cavensish is referring to the lifers in low income housing, not our veterans who end up there by no choice of their own. These lifers are the ones that are raping the system, obtaining illegal weapons, and causing the ruckus.

    • Chris Baker April 21, 2015, 10:56 pm

      If I understand you correctly, you want to deny these citizens their constitutionally guaranteed rights simply because they are low income? Are you going to take away their right to free speech too? How about their rights against self incrimination or their right to require a warrant for any search based on real evidence? When you start taking away rights, where does it end? What happens when the majority decides to take away YOUR rights?

    Hellishly Rotten Clinton. It is probably a candidate so it can get rich by illegal procurement of campaign funding for personal use. Surely it doesn’t think outside her party and the beltway Marxist community there is a chance in he’ll she is electable. If it is elected say goodbye to the bill of rights and hello to Bill’s new interns.

    • Chris Baker April 21, 2015, 10:58 pm

      Hey! What about equal rights? Doesn’t Hillary get some cute interns too?

    Wearing that “Chairman Mao” suit is proof enough she wants to disarm us

    • grassroot May 1, 2015, 3:23 pm

      she’s a Saul Alinsky trained acolyte as is Obummer. Disarm the populous is the Mantra of Marxists/Fascists.

  • Will Drider April 16, 2015, 2:06 pm

    All politicians lie. They change their positions to gain support, funding and ultimately votes. Political speach is just the Fog of War. You must look at their voting records. Anti gun and “present” votes should be seen as the death of that canadates political future. Mrs Clinton, has had a makover. Wardrobe, makeup, hair; the works. All to make her appear softer, more approachable AND more acceptable. I’m sure no one here will be fooled.
    What about others? Look at Gov Christie (R) from NJ. He runs a VERY ANTI GUN STATE and has done nothing to change it. He pardoned a woman from Pa. Who was convicted of bringing her CWP into NJ. He still not getting my vote.
    Just as Obama posed while fireing a shotgun, Clinton will try and foster a better image regarding the 2A. A sucker is born every day. Don’t let it be anyone you know.

  • John April 16, 2015, 1:36 pm

    Everything she says is based on common sense. I don’t believe that she has any, just the standard liberal agenda. If this woman is the best political mind our country has to offer, GOD HELP US!!! We don’t need another Clinton/Bush campaign stuffed down our throats. I’m a conservative. How about some young, fresh thinkers, instead of the same old CRAP. We have to get back our values and our country. We need strong conservative thinking to fix this mess. The Obama plan isn’t working. This guy is a train wreck. His only legacy , is the 20 trillion in debt, the next guy iinherits. She won’t be any better. “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE” will be ,a hell of a campaign slogan, for her campaign. GOD HELP US.
