(Freedom.news) Out of the mouths of babes…
Perhaps by accident or maybe as a way of telegraphing her mother’s intentions, Chelsea Clinton, on the campaign trail for her coughing mother, made it crystal clear that, should she become first daughter again, President Hillary Clinton will, once and for all, destroy the Second Amendment.
And she’ll use the U.S. Supreme Court – the final judicial arbiter of the Constitution that is supposed to uphold our founding document – to get the job done.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, Chelsea Clinton said:
It matters to me that my mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the Court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control. Sometimes the Court upheld local and state gun control measures as being compliant with the Second Amendment and sometimes the Court struck them down.
She then went on to praise her mother’s record of gun control; as “co-president,” you may recall, Hillary supported her president husband’s 1994 ban on so-called “assault weapons,” and would surely push for one again as president herself.
But barring that…the Supreme Court.
To wit, Chelsea:
So if you listen to Moms Demand Action and the Brady Campaign and the major efforts pushing for smart, sensible and enforceable gun control across our country, disclosure, have endorsed my mom, they say they believe the next time the Court rules on gun control, it will make a definitive ruling. So it matters to me that my mom is the only person running for president who not only constantly makes that connection but also has a strong record on gun control and standing up to the NRA.
This is one of those issues I didn’t know I could care more about until I became a mother. And I think every day about the Sandy Hook families whose children every day, don’t come home from school. And I can’t even imagine that living horror and tragedy.
We really doubt you “think everyday about the Sandy Hook families,” Chelsea, but whatever makes good campaign theater, right? As for the tragedy you speak of – and we’ll add the many others that have taken place in recent years – we find it just as difficult to fathom.
But allowing a disturbed punk or some other criminal-minded loser with a rifle to kill our children with impunity, as we cower in hiding, waiting for the police who are always minutes away when seconds count, is the very definition of insanity. This is a scenario that ordinary Americans have the potential of facing every day, but pampered, sheltered and arrogant elitists (and daughters of same) will never understand that or care enough about it to realize how cruel and inhumane it really is to make others who you feel are below you in social status more vulnerable to death. That these people can do so and still sleep at night should tell you what creeps they really are.
The Second Amendment’s language is plain: Federal, state and local governments cannot legally take our arms, period, and trying to justify gun bans and confiscations with the explanation, “The Supreme Court said so!”– doesn’t make it constitutionally correct. Pack any judicial interpretation body with like-minded people and you’re always going to get the political outcome you desire.
That said – and you can listen to Chelsea in her own words, below – the Left is coming after our guns, folks. They’re telling us to our faces. Maybe that will influence your vote this November.
