Hillary Clinton: The Government Has ‘A Right’ To Regulate The 2nd Amendment (Video)

Hillary Clinton said that the government has a right to regulate the Second Amendment, in an interview on the June 5 airing of ‘This Week With George Stephanopoulos.’

Clinton contended that Americans have historically recognized the government’s “right” to regulate the bearing of arms, suggesting that it was not until District of Columbia v Heller (2008) that anyone thought otherwise, Breitbart reported.

Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you believe an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right? That it’s not linked to the service in the militia?”

Clinton responded:

“I think that for most of our history there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment, until the decision by the late Justice [Antonin] Scalia. And there was no argument until then that localities, and states, and the federal government had a right–as we do with every amendment–to impose reasonable regulations.”

While arguing for the government’s “right” to regulate the Second Amendment, Clinton twice refused to say the people have “a constitutional right” to keep and bear arms.

The first time Stephanopoulos asked if “an individual’s right to bear arms is constitutional” Clinton sidestepped the question, claiming instead the government’s “right” to regulate.

So Stephanopoulos repeated the question, and Clinton responded: “If it is a constitutional right, then it–like every other constitutional right–is subject to reasonable regulations.”

  1. I call BULLSHIT!!!!! You don’t have a “right” or any form of permission to mess with/or obstruct any of my rights, guaranteed to me through the US Constitution!!! Unlike you or any member of your current family, I spent 10+ years in the US Army, protecting my “rights” that are guaranteed to me, and not to give people like you a chance to screw with them. If you want to screw with something, why not try your husband, maybe then he wouldn’t have to find it somewhere else!?!?!? But then again, after seeing dome pictures of you, I wouldn’t want to mess with/wake up next to you either!!!!

    • I agree with a lot of what is said here, but without the expletives. I have a problem with Hilary’s thoughts on gun control. We have the RIGHT. Crack down on the hoods and criminals having weapons, Jail the ones that sell them “under the table”, or better yet, put them to death if any gun they sell results in an innocent’s death. One of my family has said he/she would vote for Clinton, another for Trump, I am left to break the tie or cancel out one of them. I know who I will vote for, and as is my RIGHT I decline to name that one.

    • The right to bear arms does NOT mean that anyone, anywhere, at any time, can go get one if they want to. I know a few guys down where I live who have 50+ guns, including semi-automatics. Why? Are they gearing up for the next Civil War? More importantly, are they the ones who will cause it? No one, I repeat, NO ONE, (not even a soldier), needs that many weapons. The “Right To Bear Arms” gang has distorted the meaning of it, until it suits them.

      • Who the hell are you to tell me how many weapons I should have? You are one of the pricks that hides behind your computer. You better hope that your ass doesn’t need someone with a few weapons to save your dumb ass someday.

    – These days the president pisses all over the Constitution; While, the Congress and the Senate hold his picker and zip up his paints.
    And Still – “No one, -” “I REPEAT” – “No one“”- is Ever, held Accountable!

    EVERYONE! Wants to be a patriot, Until it is time to do patriot Shit! The best way to lose the Few Freedoms we have left! Is for Good Men to Do NOTHING.!
    Accountability Should Start from the top DOWN!
    – “Fire Them All and Start From Scratch!

    As Obama chooses to sidestep the Constitution whenever the need suits his agenda, aided by a complacent Republican party controlling Congress, what would stop him from taking future executive actions to institute a gun registry, which would provide the government with all they need to begin confiscation?
    Proving once again that Gun registration Always leads to Gun confiscation!
    Elect a liberal and What do you get? A fascist!

    When the people Fear the Government there is Tyranny When the government Fears the People there is liberty.
    So What is it called – When the People’s Representatives Fear A Tyrannical President. ANARCHY!

    • “So What is it called – When the People’s Representatives Fear A Tyrannical President. ANARCHY!”???? NO! Anarchy is when there are NO Representatives whatsoever. Get your facts straight BEFORE you post your meaningless drivel. Sad, and more than a little scary, that people who think like you do, still have voting rights.
