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

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.
