Breitbart Reports:

In the wake of the attack on Umpqua Community College (UCC) Hillary Clinton is pushing new regulations on gun shows and a change in laws allowing shooting victims and their families to sue gun manufacturers.

Clinton will introduce these latest gun control proposals on October 5.

According to NBC News, Clinton said she would propose “[tightening] rules governing gun show and Internet sales,” which is a reference to the expansion of background checks that has eluded Democrats and Democrat surrogates like Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly since January 2013. Of course, the problem with this approach is that the UCC gunman passed a background check for his guns, as did almost every mass shooter of note in the last eight years. Breitbart New previously reported that The New York Times admits the clear majority of mass shooters–including Gabby Giffords’ attacker–acquire their guns via background checks.

So expanding background checks would have done nothing to stop the attack at UCC.

But Clinton also wants to use the UCC attack as an opportunity to change the law so that shooting victims and their families can sue gun makers into oblivion. And even though Duke University researcher Chris Conover has demonstrated that owning a car is “80 percent” more dangerous than owning a gun–as relates to the lives of others–Clinton said nothing about allowing crash victims and their families to sue Ford, Chevrolet, Toyota, or Mercedes.

Clinton asked, “What is wrong with us that we can’t stand up to the NRA and the gun lobby and the gun manufacturers they represent?” She is pledging to fight for these new controls and laws as president.

And it is crucial to note that even as Clinton proposes these controls she is going on record pledging to enact them via executive action if Congress refuses to go along with her. In other words, constitutional checks and balances be damned, Clinton will follow Obama’s lead to move her agenda forward via executive fiat when Congress does not play along.

  1. What Hillary should do is order a future ground investigation on a potential gun buyer. What is would be is to investigate their future to determine if they will conduct a mass murder sometime after they purchase the firearm. Well, you ask? How? What Hillary Clittit wants to do is keep firearms out of those that are going to commit mass murders. Actually, I do want that, as well. But, she has to come up with a better plan than complete dis-arming of the entire nation. Like making her security staff begin to do this, first. Her Secret Service Agents are always armed with machine guns as well as high powered pistols. When she is pleased with that, then the rest of us may be more willing to follow suit. Maybe?

  2. Hillary Clinton is a hard core progressive who wants more government control, ignoring our Constitution and our founding values and culture, at the expense of our liberties, and government under the consent of the governed.
    She is as much a lier as Obama, and will continue this destructive behavior for her own personal power.

  3. How stupid can she be? Sue the gun makers if a weapon they made is used in a crime. How about the automobile factories. Cars kill a lot of people each year. How about airplanes, boats, baseball bats, knives, and rope. Going to sue all the manufactures? What is someone strangles someone to death. going to sue God? That woman is eat up with the dumb ass

  4. How Stupid can people get. Oh ya I forgot Can’t fix Stupid. It Is NOT the Manufacturer’s if someone kills someone . It is the Idiot behind the gun that pulls the trigger and kills people. GUNS DON’T Kill, people do. Does a pencil miss spell a word? No. It is the person who is holding the pencil.
