Hillary Confuses Declaration of Independence with Constitution When Pushing Gun Control

The video above will most likely elicit one of two reactions. Either (a) it will confirm in one’s mind that when it comes to the Constitution, that critically important document that limits the powers of government and codifies the rights of the people, Hillary Clinton doesn’t know her butt from a hole in the ground. Or (b) one will defend Hillary, and argue that it was an honest mistake.

So, here’s what happened. While appearing on the Steve Harvey Show, or whatever it’s called, Hillary Clinton started to pitch her anti-gun agenda to the audience, suggesting that it’s time for people to take on the National Rifle Association and remind it what the Constitution says.

“We’ve got to say to the gun lobby, you know what, there is a constitutional right for people to own guns, but there’s also a constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that enables us to have a safe country where we are able to protect our children and others from this senseless gun violence,” she said.

Clinton is, of course, confusing the Declaration of Independence with the Constitution. The Declaration of Independence states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Putting the conflation aside, Clinton is wrong that these two ideas are in conflict with one another. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the Second Amendment is what safeguards one’s unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Remember, government is the biggest existential threat to one’s liberties — not some gang banger with a gun. Yes, we all want to keep guns out of the hands of prohibited persons, but not at the expense of one’s right to keep and bear arms. If we disarm America — or subarm America — as Hillary wants in a futile effort to keep bad guys from obtaining guns, we will inevitably lose those unalienable rights stated in the Declaration of Independence to government tyranny. And we will also lose all the rights codified in the Constitution: free speech, religion, due process, etc., to government tyranny.  Not to mention the fact that without the 2A we will be defenseless against the very gang-banger we tried to disarm via Hillary’s gun-control agenda in the first place.  Gun control is a lose, lose proposition.

Our founders and framers knew how critically important an armed America was to preserving freedom. It’s why they included the Second Amendment. Hillary should know this. She’s running for president! But then again, maybe she doesn’t really care about what the Constitution says.

    Sorry, I didn’t watch the video, because the sight or sound of this vile POS makes me nauseous, the one thing I do know however, is if Hellary is for it, patriotic Americans should be vehemently against it, as am I!!!!!!

  • Arthur Tenny March 6, 2016, 11:17 pm

    Hillary can’t keep the Constitution and Declaration straight. The president thinks he was doing midnight ice cream raids in the same White House kitchen George Washington ate in. Did he ever get past “we have 47 states”?

  • Erick March 5, 2016, 4:28 pm

    150% of 100% is equal to 1/3 and five fifths. 98 out of 5 people believe the crap I say, as long as it’s the people I choose. Math is easier than stupid. Damn, I should be a politician!

    Apart from this, the great lawyer Hillary screwed up on the Declaration and Constitution? Go figure! If only she or Obama could become a Supreme Court Justice, oh the spectacle that would be!

    Shame on Harvey for agreeing with her….I thought more of him; not anymore.

  • Herm February 29, 2016, 1:16 pm

    Gun owners REMEMBER this when election day arrives. Hillary’s plan is to replicate the Aussies who confiscated the guns and melted them down. Lots of folks seem to believe the current emperor when he says he believes in the second amendment and somehow they ignore that every time the opportunity arises for him to try to destroy the second amendment he gives that his best shot. If you like guns for sport, for self-defense or just cause they look cool hanging over the fireplace, think before you vote. And that goes for state and local elections too. Hillary and her friends have lots of little helpers. Vote ’em all out.

  • Sol February 27, 2016, 3:54 pm

    I’m no fan of Hillary, but it is OBVIOUS that a non-lawyer who thinks he knows the Constitution, wrote this. The right to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness is inherent and appears throughout the Constitution! For example, check out the 14th Amendment! I just love it when someone who knows ZERO about the Constitution starts spouting off and commenting on it. Next time, leave it to the lawyers or at least READ the document before commenting unless you want to keep showing your ignorance.

    • S.H. Blannelberry February 27, 2016, 5:46 pm

      She was clearly referencing the language of the Dec. of Indep. in that video… not the 14th Amendment. There is a difference between the two. One explicates those inherent rights, the other restricts gov. from depriving one of those rights without Due Process.

      Plus, in a literal sense, what amendment reads: “right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that enables us to have a safe country where we are able to protect our children and others from this senseless gun violence?”

  • Tony P. February 27, 2016, 12:03 pm

    And there are still morons out there that want this IDIOT to be our Commander In Chief? If the “Top Cop” doesn’t know one foundational document from another, what they convey, nor what they stand for, how the Hell is this block-head suppose to lead this nation with the very power of total annihilation at her finger tips? REALLY? And of course you have Knuckle-Head Harvey agreeing whole-heartedly with the Leftist She Idiot, and to top off it all off we have a pre-loaded audience of mope-headed “whatever have yous” who couldn’t even quote The Preamble To The U.S. Constitution. What I find curious is that all of these Anti-gunner Jack-Asses, (my most sincere apologies to every hard working mule out there) who want to disarm this nation under the guise of supposed “safety”, have no need to actually carry a self-defense weapon. And that is because they are surrounded by armed guards who are paid to come directly between them and harm’s way! Was is not Benjamin Franklin who wrote, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”? That is exactly what the pathetic likes of Hillary deserve, and one day will reap. Unfortunately, many of us who are now trying to “HOLD-FAST”, will end up reaping along side these stupid wood-cocks! So, it is not only in our best interests to espouse great 2nd Amendments Rights issues and ideologies, but it behooves us to get involved and be pro-active in every way that we are able to do so. There are many dangerous individuals about us, and if we allow these Leftist Communists to continue to erode away our essential liberties, we will soon find ourselves like those victims of Paris; dis-armed, vulnerable, and lolled to sleep. They were ready-made victims for the slaughter, sheeple if you would. We all need to do our part: fear God, love America, do right, be earnest, train, be prepared, be armed and have the correct mind-set, and be prepared to honor the sacrifices of those who fought to guarantee us and our posterity the liberties we enjoy today. Please keep in mind what Thomas Paine said, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of liberty, must, like men, must undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”

    • Andrew N. February 27, 2016, 11:22 pm

      I not only WANT Hillary elected, I NEED her to be elected. Without her and the Democratic Party’s moral high ground, my Right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness would be severely diminished. Without the continued support of our Gov’t, I might have to (SHUDDER) go to WORK! Talk about interfering with my pursuit of happiness! Without my free cell phone, how could I find out if my dealer is around the neighborhood, and if he has my drug of choice? If the Republican candidate wins, do you really think I will be able to trade my Food Stamps for drugs at a dime on the dollar? I don’t think so! So while you rant about taxes and frivolous spending, try to remember the people like me, who love the current Administration for their support of OUR dreams of never having to work. Unlike you, I didn’t say “Fireman, Policeman, or Astronaut” when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I just said ” I want to be like my Heroes, my Mommy and my newest Daddy who get to stay with me all day, just waiting for the Gov’t check to show up!” I love my life, and you should be happy that you can help me live MY dream!

  • Jay February 27, 2016, 7:43 am

    Far too many people have been sleeping on obamas watch and the media has been silent! The government has already nixed the Bill of rights with the passage of the additions to the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), also known as the Indefinite Detention Act into law. With this they have in effect turned America into a war zone, and places US citizens under military rule and completely nullifies a good portion of the Bill of Rights! This was passed the majority of the government with only four or five voting no! So what does that tell you?

  • RAC55 February 27, 2016, 5:30 am

    Giving Hillary the benefit of doubt that she made “an honest mistake” doesn’t fly in my book. She is not some layperson on the street…she is a college educated lawyer who damned well knows the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution (Bill of Rights). Her twisting the meanings behind these documents is pure revisionist history done for effect, hoping the brain dead liberals and left wing media will believe it and report it as gospel. Her sinister rhetoric and lying makes Obama and Richard Nixon look like chior boys.

    • Andrew N. February 27, 2016, 11:25 pm

      “An honest mistake”? Hillary can’t even do that because the word “Honest” is involved.

  • Justin Time February 27, 2016, 4:46 am

    I sure hope we never have to hear Over-the-Hillary sing the National Anthem…..and the Rocket’s red Glare…the Bombs bursting in air….and at this point, what difference does it make…..

  • Criminal February 27, 2016, 3:43 am

    Everyone keeps agreeing to the “except criminals”, “except felons”, “except…” BS. Everyone here has probably committed a “felony” just today–read the book: “Three Felonies a Day”. Thanks to the insanity of our legislative branches there so many laws on the books that anyone can be turned into a registered “felon” any time some officious cop, perhaps at the behest of your political enemy, decides to target you. Hell, just excercising your 2A rights in many places now can get you that scarlet letter. This whole “except” thing is BULLSHIT. If a person is safe enough to be free in society, he is safe enough to have all of his rights respected. Stop agreeing with bad, rights violating, ideas, or watch your own rights go down the toilet when it’s your turn.

  • DocLoch February 27, 2016, 1:56 am

    If we kept guns out of the hands of Government, just imagine how many millions (probably billions) of live would be saved!

  • law dawg February 26, 2016, 10:28 pm

    Forescore and 58 years ago my life in this country was awesome. Of course there were issues. But in the past twenty years we have been headed for destruction. Since the clintons and obama have been in the government and white house they have destroyed this nation. Obama is a filthy lying Muslim who sole purpose and intentions were change the United States. He’s nothing but garbage. The clintons are right there with him. They are evil people and will do anything to obtain their agendas and goal. If hilarious frompy nutt ugly Clinton becomes president we’ll be speaking mandrin. The obamas and clintons are an obamation to the world, Let alone this country. We should be preparing for the worst….the world is laughing at us and if frompy gets elected we will pay a great price…..GOD bless America…

  • DHConner February 26, 2016, 9:59 pm

    She is a congenital idiot, a useful idiot at that, and fellow traveler who couldn’t find her ass with both hands, a mirror, and a searchlight. Honest mistake? She isn’t capable of honesty – a paranoid schizoid beast, all she can do is run on emotions, which as we all know are the source of powerfully stupid beliefs upon which her version of facts are built. Expect nothing from her but lies, half-truths. and damned lies. As President, she would be the most dangerous thing to occupy the White House since she and her white trash husband and the baboon (not based on race, but upon his history in the WH, and past before that) who now befouls that sacred institution. One of these days, I do think that God is going to just look the other way if we keep electing these animals. The saddest part of it is that we who know and recognize her for what she is are going to suffer just as much as the foolishly wishful imbeciles who do vote for her will. And, my friends, then it will be time to considering adding that most fearsome phrase: “Lock and load” to our daily vocabulary and putting it to good use. If we get extremely lucky, she’ll stoke out or have a heart attack or brain aneurysm, which will clear the air so that ii is once again fit to breath, and these outrageous attacks against our Constitution and Bill of Rights will cease. Trump may be a loudmouth an uncouth fellow, but he knows how to run a business, and with $5billion net worth, he would be very hard to buy, which is far more than can be said for this fat, waddling whore.

  • Mark February 26, 2016, 7:57 pm

    Lenin said: “Lies told often enough become truth.” Clinton is a Marxist, as is Obama. Both are disciples of the late Saul Alinsky, a Marxist. Both follow his precepts for destabilizing a country (ours). The New Word Order is Clinton’s dream. Don’t expect anything different. The schools have been dumbed down for the last 50 years or more. Brainwashed youth to 30 somethings know nothing about the Founders Intentions who have been minimized and removed from history books by being called racists. Therefore they are discounted.

  • hey February 26, 2016, 6:08 pm

    I am offended by her direct lies, as she ignores history both hundreds of years and just the last 20 years as crime rate, drugs, and government debt in reference to freedom, prosperity, and liberty. However I am glad she is running that stupid mouth out of ignorance during election time.

    • shootbrownelk February 27, 2016, 4:25 am

      Evidently, Over-the-Hillary is still suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, what with dodging all the “Sniper-Fire” bullets in Bosnia. I think that is where Brian Williams got his idea for self-embellishment. I look forward to the FBI doing an honest investigation of Hildabeast, without political pressure from Barry’s administration and the Democratic party in general. Then we’ll she how she looks in a Federal Prison issued Orange Jumpsuit.

  • mudflat February 26, 2016, 2:54 pm

    How many voters believe that disarming or sub-arming law abiding Americans is going to reduce gun violence or gun violent crime? Gun grabber politicians have this as their political war cry; No guns means no gun violence!
    To the lying politicians, please stop, you liars are insulting the American public. We know that you are using these altruistic words to obfuscate your agenda. You are fooling only some of the unrealistic people, the rest of us know what is going on.

      Agree but intelligence has NEVER been a forte of the vast majority of imbecilic politicians and Haggary is a prime example of buffoonery to the 10th degree. She’s SO worried about the BS gun issue yet when SHE had the opportunity to save lives she came up with the largest pile of Haggary crap known to mankind with her Benghazi tripe. She’s a disgusting joke, a hypocrite, a liar, and worse, she’s ten times fugly…or, in other words, the perfect example of a liberal, jus’ sayin’.

  • Boots February 26, 2016, 12:03 pm

    Citizen or criminal, call me what you will. I will protect my family any way I feel is necessary regardless of what the politicians try to push on me. No I am not a criminal, but if they try to tell me how to live I may just turn into one. (according to them) I served my country proudly and did not do it for them. (only country)

  • WeThePeopleUSA February 26, 2016, 11:33 am

    Just chalk it up to Hillary’s got no time for details slogan: “What does it matter anyway” It is not about rights, it is about control and premeditated corruption.

  • avlisk February 26, 2016, 11:07 am

    In the immortal words of Mrs. Clinton, “What difference does it make!” Of course most of us know the difference, but for her, these are all just quaint old documents to be twisted and used in any way possible to advance liberalism and tyranny!

  • Larry February 26, 2016, 10:38 am

    Hillary, the Evil, is from Satan. In Hell, I doubt anyone is allowed to carry firearms, therefore, her aversion to guns.

  • Ross Walters February 26, 2016, 10:28 am

    Hillary would nominate a Supreme Court judge dedicated to gutting the 2nd Amendment. Congress isn’t talking about taking away our gun rights. The President has limited Executive Order powers. SCOTUS is the politically driven weak link.
    Trump is on track to get the Republican nomination and face-off against Hillary. Who are you going to vote for?
    Not voting for Trump (ie: “I hate Trump”) enables Hillary. Casting your vote for Hillary is like giving her TWO votes.
    I’m going to take my 2A chances with the Republican nominee no matter who it is. How about you…maybe you’ll vote for the Green Party candidate?

  • Nic Modracek February 26, 2016, 10:26 am

    My Conservative credentials are impeccable and I NEVER in my wildest dreams thought I would EVER find myself defending ANYTHING Hillary Clinton said, but I have to take exception to the premise of this article and the negative responses written here. Our Constitution was written to put into action as a form of government for free men and women that was BASED on gthe principles outlined in the Declaration. It IS true the words “… endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, …” are found in the second paragraph of the Declaration – not in the Constitution. But each of the Rights listed in the Bill of Rights is an INDIVIDUAL Right because we were ALL CREATED as individuals, not as a group, and descend directly from our Right to control our own individual lives and destinies.

    She TWISTS it into something it does NOT mean in the superficial way she uses it to justify gun control, without consideration to the fact that WE ALL have this Right, but especially the innocent who are just going about their lives. We have an unalienable Right to DEFEND our lives with the same tools used illegally by the criminals who would TAKE our lives or those lives of the people we know and love.

  • noduty2submit February 26, 2016, 10:16 am

    “Carrying” a firearm is NOT a Right; it is a commercial activity and a regulable PRIVILEGE…

    Think about it… a Nurse — nurses; an accountant — accounts; a plumber — plumbs; a builder — builds and a CARRIER — CARRIES!!!

    All those are regulable and licensable commercial activities and that’s why you can be REQUIRED to get a License to “carry.” How else can you “license” a the 2nd Amendment? I can’t seem to find a “License to Bear Arms,” can you?

    So follows that “carrying a firearm” is a PRIVILEGE; to be distinguished from the RIGHT “to keep and bear Arms.”

    please watch “Why you should NOT carry firearms” — https://youtu.be/8jeETxuT8Zc

    and “Why Gun licenses are NOT law, they are commercial contracts” — https://youtu.be/r5kFwdJiCYk.

    Therefore, fight tyranny — DON’T CARRY! — BEAR ARMS instead!!!

    • Ronhart February 26, 2016, 2:14 pm

      “A license to carry a firearm?? ” Of course not – it is a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT!! You don’t need a license to exercise your CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to bear (carry) arms !!

      Many states illegally require a license to exercise gun carry rights, but that is changing. Some states are now recognizing “Constitutional Carry” rights and doing away with licensing requirements.

  • conatt February 26, 2016, 10:12 am

  • Joe February 26, 2016, 9:46 am

    In the legal system ” all men are innocent until proven guilty” most of the time…. . However in the case of disarming America it seems that we’re all bad until proven good, so to speak. Passing a background check to receive a concealed carry permit should absolutely be considered due diligence and in open carry states I feel that it should be up to the residents of those states to define their own regulations. Isn’t there a constitutional amendment that defines states rights in that regard too?

  • Ear; Haehl February 26, 2016, 9:26 am

    Ms Clinton missed a bit in American History. The Declaration of Independence was a declaration of war on the King and Parliament. A couple lines later it talks about the right of the people to change an oppressive government, if necessary by force of arms as Cromwell had done in the Civil War. Both the Declaration and the Bill of Rights proclaim the rights of the individual. If you read the document carefully, The Bill of Rights is a proclamation of restrictions on the powers of the Central government.

  • James M February 26, 2016, 9:23 am

    As someone who lived in South Central Los Angeles among gangs and violence and has had family and friends killed by gun violence . Hillary Clinton is a fool if she thinks taking guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens will stop gun violence. Criminals, gangbanger, drug dealers get their guns from other criminals, gangbangers, and drug dealers. And sometimes from crooked cops. When I look at States that’s allow citizens to carry firearms and own whatever firearms they want crime is lower than places that have restrictive gun laws. Criminals commit crimes where they know law abidding people are not allwoed to have guns like Wash DC, Chicago, ect.

  • McRuger February 26, 2016, 9:12 am

  • Liberty Bell February 26, 2016, 8:12 am

    Those are not Constitutional Rights, they are Inherent Rights! The Constitution does not “give” us any rights. Those rights are pre-existing, inherent to mankind! The Constitution restricts the Federal Government from infringing on those rights. This is the most important point that most people don’t realize. If you believe. as obviously Hillary Clinton does, that the Federal government “gives” you these rights through the Constitution, then by default, the government can also take away what rights were ‘given.” Only we, as free citizens can “give up” our rights by allowing the restrictions placed on our Federal government through the Constitution to be changed or removed.

    • DNS February 26, 2016, 9:49 am

      This needs to be beaten into the minds of everyone in the country. Far to many people believe the constitution bestows rights to them. As American citizens we were born with those rights. They can’t be taken from us period. The government may try and restrict them by passing laws but the laws are not constitutional and have no legitimate force. Every gun restriction on the books is in violation of the second amendment. That fact needs to be hammered home every time some antigun blowhard opens their mouth. No comprising or discussions. All that has ever led to was more infringement. The infringements we already have need to be rolled back starting with the GCA in the 30’s.

    • Michael February 26, 2016, 9:51 am

      I agree 100%!! Exteremely well made point.

    • Captain Bob February 26, 2016, 9:57 am

      Liberty Bell: Our “inherent” rights are definitely the rights to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness” AND the right of self-defense BUT it is the Constitution that GRANTS us the right to use firearms to best exercise the inherent self-defense right. Without our second Amendment we could use fists, feet, rocks, clubs, knives, etc. (like England, Australia, Japan, and others) to exercise that right but not with firearms. Our Framers were very wise to GRANT that right because firearms are the BEST way. This is why we need to fight and continue to fight those politicians who want to remove that right.
      Also, understand that the politicians in Congress and elsewhere know damn well that banning guns from good citizens won’t stop gun violence because the bad guys will still have/get them but THEY DON’T CARE! It’s done for vote-getting because the morons that vote for them believe it will. When it doesn’t, they just rationalize they they just need MORE gun restriction laws and so on. In addition to vote-getting the politicians want guns out of the hands of the people because an unarmed populace can be brought to it’s knees by an all-powerful government. This is the PRIMARY reason (self-defense is second) that the Framers gave us the Second Amendment.

      • Liberty Bell February 27, 2016, 6:59 pm

        Sorry Captain, but the Constitution does not “Grant” us the right to use firearms, or “Grant” us any other right.
        The Constitution prohibits the Federal Government the ability to deny or infringe on our rights. The Second Ammendment specifically prohibits the Government from infringing upon the right to keep and bear Arms.
        The first ten Ammendments commonly called The Bill of Rights, is horribly misnamed. There is not a right “Granted” in any of them. Instead it should be called The Bill Of Restrictions, because that is what it is, restrictions on the Federal Government.
        Everyone please reread the first ten Ammaenments to The Constition. I don’t say that to be condescending. As you read each Ammendment, it will become clear that NO rights are granted there. Only restrictions on Government to preserve our inherent rights.

    • Nick February 26, 2016, 11:51 am

      Liberty Bell, you could not have said it more clearly. These rights are inalienable and God Given to all mankind , not GIVEN by the benevolence of any State. The Bill of Rights and the Constitution only RECOGNIZE these rights. All politicians who take the Oath of office swear to UPHOLD those rights , and should be tried for TREASON when they try to change or restrict those rights.

  • Jd February 26, 2016, 8:05 am

    Here’s a small error from the article: “as Hillary wants in a futile effort to keep bad guys from obtaining guns.” She thinks guys with guns are bad.
    On another point, it doesn’t matter what she says or does. For roughly 35-40% of the electorate, they will vote for anything with a “D” behind its name. And another 10-20% will probably believe at least some of what she says.

  • John February 26, 2016, 7:56 am

    Hilary belongs in prison. If a “peasant” did what she did they’d be spending the rest of their lives in prison, but because her last name is Clinton her actions are swept under the rug and she campaigns for presidency. If this woman becomes president I will have lost all faith in the American people’s capacity for reason and cricital thought. The politicians we overthrew a monarchy for are just as bad, if not worse than the king we long ago replaced. I’ll be strongly tempted to leave the country if Hilary is allowed to continue Obama’s agenda and run this country into the ground.

Blame not the fool who utters these words, but the electorate who elects them and puts them in office, as one wise man so eloquently said. We on the “OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE,” should educate the folks and always tell the truth. Plain and simple HILLY is a BALD FACE LIAR! Her’s and her husband’s history has certainly proven that fact. Long term crime has been going DOWN for many years in our Great Country……ever since George Washington chopped down the cherry tree.

    Can I answer “all of the above”? Sure it was an honest mistake but it happened because she is abysmally ignorant and uncaring about what rights Americans are supposed to have. She’s also wrong in saying that we have a constitutional right to own guns. We have a right to own ARMS and to CARRY those arms. Not just guns, and not just specific arms and not just in specified places nor by specified persons who’ve gotten permission from the government to have and carry those arms. The second amendment of the constitution says the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Being required to ask permission to purchase an arm is an infringement. Being required to ask permission to carry an arm is an infringement. Not being allowed to carry it somewhere is an infringement. Being told how you can carry it, concealed or open is an infringement. Not being allowed to purchase a particular arm that you want is an infringement. The only constitutional gun control laws in this country are the ones that are about things that are already illegal such as assault, robbery etc. There’s no exceptions listed saying the states can override this right, not can the cities etc. Any infringement is unconstitutional and undermines our freedom and liberty.

      Very well stated. Thx

    • Old Clockguy February 26, 2016, 8:48 am

      @Chris Baker – And let me add a few others to Chris’s list. Rape, kidnapping, B&E, all forms of stealing from another person or business, almost any misdemeanor or lower level felony less than outright murder all are already illegal. And the punishment for these already illegal crimes against your fellow man/woman upon conviction, usually a term in your life spent in an institution of incarceration which, in many cases, involve a much better life than the convict ever had on the “outside”!! Free medical, free prescription drugs to treat their illnesses including any operatory procedures that are required, free room and board including some better food than I eat on occasion, free education including access to all training aids and counselling needed to gain a degree, even a law degree if desired, and I could go on with the list but you get the idea.

      Question: If all these benefits are available to already convicted criminals, who made this type of “punishment” available to already convicted criminals?? I won’t mention any names but the term ends with the letter “Politicians” and begins with the letter “ALL”!! And how did this group of madmen and women get into such a seat of power over the years of our great country’s history?? …………. WE, the people, who have an unalienable right to get off our dead asses and get out to cast our VOTE every couple of years, put them there!! It’s easy to cast aspersions on such filth that are in control of this country but one has to check both sides of the stone before casting it toward anyone else’s glass house. How many of us have sat at home and used the utterly useless, ignorant, lazy excuse that “my vote doesn’t mean that much” or “I’m sure there will be enough other people voting to get the job done”?? I remember the first time I got to vote in a real election, I was young and impetuous, wild in the streets sometimes, a typical teenager of my time, but I could not wait to cast my first vote in a real election!! ….. My VOTE!! ….. If memory serves, it was for some state representatives or some such state election and I was so thrilled that I finally had my “say” in the way our country was being handled! And I only have missed one (1) election in the following 50 some odd years of being an American voter. And that was my fault. But my pick still got into office in spite of my oversight. Now that may prove out the theory that “my vote doesn’t mean that much” but, that year I missed out on voting, I felt just one step short of being some kind of traitor to my nation, my party, and myself …….. at the time.

      Since then, I have seen politicians lie, cheat, steal, break laws, the conviction of which would have put me so far away that they would have to pipe sunshine into my cell for me to tell if it was day or night, and, with few exceptions, they got away with blatant disregard for the laws of this great land. These people were put in their controlling positions by YOU and ME, the voters who bought into their “talk the talk” and, only after they had a firm foot in the door of the Oval Office, did we see that things weren’t as they should be and these people could not or would not “walk their walk”! We are seeing that happen today in factual detail.

      So, where do we go from here? There is only one strategy to use when you are backed against the wall and those hounds are arguing over which one gets the “first bite” of their “victims”. FIGHT BACK!! You don’t have much to lose other than your life and that can be taken at any moment by the actions of a drunk behind the wheel of a vehicle or an enemy IED hidden somewhere in a God forsaken land you never heard of before. You don’t have to rally or carry protest signs, such actions simply frustrate those who don’t know the real secret of their power. No, the powerful people of this nation know that there is one way to get the power back when someone tries to take that power from them, they get out and VOTE!! They know they can affect change with their one vote! If you feel, in your heart, that there is someone out there who can rationally lead this country and really make a difference in the way we live and prosper as a nation, cast your vote when it means the most for this country! Trite as it may sound, we have moved mountains in our country’s history with our vote and we can do it again. But it’s like bitching about never winning the lottery, or a horse race, or a game of poker, you can’t win if you don’t play! I realize that the “pickin’s” are slim this go around but it will only get worse if you and I don’t do our small parts to affect change. We need to get this nation back on track and it won’t happen based on one election. It won’t happen if it continues on the path it is now following. But there is a chance, maybe even some light at the end of a long tunnel signifying that change is on the horizon, if we persist and we keep our focus and we VOTE and VOTE again until such time as we begin to see that light become brighter and creep closer to our position. How do I know this??

      Because I have a never ending faith in the foundation that our forefathers laid out so long ago being a rock solid basis with which to operate a free country in perpetuity and I also believe that the power of the vote is the greatest power each of us have at our disposal. I know that this country is at a crossroad and this coming election will determine which path we take from here on.

      Just some thoughts from an old man who has been through a few reality checks himself ………….

      • rt66paul February 27, 2016, 2:30 pm

        Sorry, you are confused if you think prison or even county/city jail is a cakewalk. People come out changed, many for the worst. Yes, they have to be fed, clothed, and have medical care. The overcrowding and the “respect” that every one feels is his/hers makes it a living hell. If you don’t want to team up with the gang the picks you, you are a pariah and then anyone can try you. Spend a week inside and you will see – taking away a man’s freedom is a last chance thing, after that is done, most are ruined.

    • criminal February 27, 2016, 4:32 am

      Exactly! And when you exercise your rights, and are seen, you are labeled a “felon” and now the gun lovers go against you too. 🙁

  • Mr Robert Anton Novak February 26, 2016, 6:11 am

    Once again the Hildebitch shows that she’s a lying skank traitor that knows nothing about the Constitution, or what the 2nd Amendment is really all about. The left bandies numbers like 85% of gun owners agree, with this, or 95% agree with that, but they have no empirical evidence to prove these numbers, they’re just thrown out to confuse the ignorant masses.

    First off, let me say this. I DIDNT need to watch the video, to know what kind of MORONIC, LYING CHEATING, POWER HUNGRY BITCH Clinton is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF it came down to a vote between Hillary, and Hitler ???????????????
    DAMN, decisions decisions decisions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TRUMP 2016- 2020 MAYBE MORE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Chris Baker February 26, 2016, 8:12 am

      You really need to research Trump and the things he’s done and said and is doing and saying. See for yourself whether they match or not.

  • Blasted Cap February 26, 2016, 5:43 am

    “Oh it’s in one of those old pieces of paper in some museum.” ” What does it matter?” “They are evolving documents anyway right?” Can hear her now.
    What a MORON!!!!!! Must have been sick when they taught that in school.

  • BUURGA February 26, 2016, 3:22 am

    Hillary seems to get a great many things wrong. She lives in a dream world of statistics and politically-correct logic. However, I imagine after Benghazi, she really is quite affected by thoughts of gun violence.

  • Jim February 26, 2016, 3:12 am

    but there’s also a constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that enables us to have a safe country where we are able to protect our children and others from this senseless gun violence,” she said.
    That’s all we want too, to be able to “… protect our children and others from this senseless gun violence,” and packing a gun is the best way I can think of! The heck of it is, they parade these meaningless chant/rants around but, never offer any solutions to the problem.
    How anybody can for even a moment believe any legislation is going to disarm a bunch of wise guys and gang bangers and stop them from their senseless violence is beyond me.
    The REAL problem is indeed the “senseless violence.” Guns are just the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot of violence happening that never includes any gun, in fact, that describes most of it. Heck, even if they COULD deprive everybody (except themselves of course) of firearms, it wouldn’t slow down the violence one little bit. Heck, if anything, it would probably escalate when people like me, 60 and arthritic, became totally defenseless.

    • Charlie King1 February 26, 2016, 8:46 am

      Jim- you are correct. The first recorded act of violence did not happen with a firearm, if you go back to Genesis and read about Able’s demise. This country’s tepid response to violence and the justice system’s ‘slap on the wrist’ policies have enabled and emboldened the criminal’s behavior. We don’t put convicted felons away for long enough periods of time; we plea bargain serious, aggravated offenses down to misdemeanors. We can’t be serious about stopping the drugs flowing into this country until we seal up the southern border. But it is so easy for Cankles to blame an inanimate object. Ms. Cankles, if you want to keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them, then start locking up serious offenders for a very long time and keep them off of the streets.

    • yup February 26, 2016, 10:57 am

      Exactly correct, all the dumb shits that think taking a firearm away, will stop violence, is mind blowing!! Apparently they forget about the Oklahoma City bombing, the jones town massacre, these were mass violence, that didn’t include firearms….the means to harm others is always available, but taking away our quickest defense to the perpetrators attack, that is just plain fucking stupid, and I will never submit to giving up my right to bear arms and protect my loved ones….PERIOD

  • Will Drider February 25, 2016, 11:51 pm

    On a side note: Where does hitlery get the 85% of gun owners support something the NRA opposes? What specific issue(s)? Remember her last run? When she spoke about growing up with guns! I guess she can flip flop on gun issues just like trump does. Trump says he supports the 2A but we suffered trough the AWB for 10 years which Trump supported and to this day he has not addressed a position on future AWB issues. The media won’t ask him because trump will throw a fit and say he is not being treated fairly.

  • taxx73 February 25, 2016, 8:52 pm

    There is an old joke that I think applies to Hitlery and others like her.” Some people are alive simply because it’s against the law to kill them.” I don’t mean this as a threat just that I’m surprised that Hitlery and all the other libtards are intelligent enough to breathe let alone tell me how I can defend what I care for.
    Hey libtards: LEAVE OUR RIGHTS ALONE!!!!!!!!

    • WilliamDahl February 26, 2016, 5:50 am

      I would love to see Hitlery dead. I would just hate for it to be via a firearm. I’m thinking maybe an accident with her lithium battery powered sex toy would be appropriate? 🙂

      As a knee-jerk response, the legislators could come up with laws requiring waiting periods for sex toys, perhaps?

  • Trump All The Way! February 25, 2016, 2:42 pm

    Hilary Clinton said “We’ve got to say to the gun lobby, you know what, there is a constitutional right for people to own guns, but there’s also a constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that enables us to have a safe country where we are able to protect our children and others from this senseless gun violence,”
    Ok, that sounded fine and dandy Hilary! How about saying that to a bunch of criminals! How about you “Hilary” saying this… “Hey! Mr. and Mrs. Criminals, we have a constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness here. So you go away now with your guns now you hear!
    See how well that’d worked out for you and your gun control mongers!
