Hillary Clinton On Gun Control: We Can't Let 'A Minority Of People' Terrorize The Majority

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke about her views on gun control Tuesday, saying she was "disappointed" Congress did not pass a universal background checks bill after "the horrors" of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

"I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation, 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," Clinton said during a CNN town hall.

Clinton said she feels for parents sending their kids to school, noting that there have been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook.

"I don't think any parent, any person, should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reasons -- psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever it means -- could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers," Clinton said.

1. I found the sentence that the Republicans

will use in their attack ads. The bolded will be the edited part in the commercials "I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation, 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,"
I do agree with her that we need a more thoughtful conversation. I would add to that an honest conversation, where both sides are honest and thoughtful. I don't see that ever happening

Automatic weapon? OK, I'll let her slide on that.

9. Wow, ge - that link is a pitch-perfect example of how


the GOP successfully exploits our dishonesty on "gun control".

Saving that.

6. Thought control much?

 

So now, we can't allow people to hold "viewpoints" that we don't like? Really?

7. Gun control isn't so much about guns as it is about control

10. Looks like Huffpo and SecMo are into damage control already!


Revising what Hillary actually 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"

to:

"We Can't Let 'A Minority Of People' Terrorize The Majority."

This is really bad news.
