“When I think about keeping Americans safe, obviously I think about terrorism,” Clinton said at a campaign event in Sanford, Fla. “But I also want to protect Americans from the epidemic of gun violence that is stalking our country.”
“I cannot come to Sanford without talking about Trayvon Martin,” she continued. “It’s heartbreaking that this young man all he did was go to a cornerstone, bought a pack of Skittles and walked back home in the rain. And his life was cut short.”
“Thirty-three thousand people a year die from guns and we’ve got to do a better job, my friends,” she said. “You see, I believe we have a fundamental human — even a moral obligation — to protect our children no matter who they are or what zip code they live in. We have a moral obligation to reduce gun violence and that will require us to stand up against systemic racism and promote justice and equality and criminal justice reform.”
“Something is wrong when young people, just starting their lives are dying. Something is wrong when so many parents live in fear that their child will be hurt or killed going to the movies, sitting in a first grade classroom, attending a Bible study, the list goes on. This has nothing to do with the Second Amendment and responsible gun owners,” Clinton added, referencing several recent high profile mass shooting events.

“But I’m looking at violence broadly,” she added. “It’s also why I’ve advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loophole — because, you know, it’s not only terrorists we need to be worried about.”
How awful that poor Trayvon died for skittles. And it’s sure a shame that he couldn’t go to that next Bible study. I’m sure it was on his calendar.
As for Hillary, that’s not all she has promised, but it’s a taste. She wants a renewed “assault weapons” ban, registration of ammunition buyers, a limit on ammunition purchases, and a host of other things that will infringe on your liberties.
She has the support of people like Pat Toomey, Jeff Flake, Kelly Ayotte, and others. She will have what she wants. And she will also likely attempt to federalize local and state police. Unlike the gargoyles, pit vipers and demons that inhabit the GOP, when she says what she will do, you can believe her.
Prepare now. In fact, it may already be too late.
