Hillary Clinton first disavowed that she is seeking to abolish the Second Amendment then went on to list five Second Amendment-crippling gun controls she plans to implement if elected in November.
I’m going to continue to speak out for comprehensive background checks, closing the “gun show loophole,” closing the “online loophole,” closing the so-called “Charleston loophole,” reversing the bill that Senator Sanders voted for and I voted against, giving immunity from liability to gun makers and sellers.
The crippling effect of these gun controls is already evidenced in states like California, where comprehensive background checks — i.e., universal background checks — have been paired with gun registration and even confiscation laws. The latest California gun control to emerge from universal background checks is the push to implement background checks for ammunition purchasers — and Clinton supports the ammunition background checks.
Her push to reverse the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) is all about enabling crime victims to sue gun makers and gun sellers for crimes committed with lawfully made and lawfully purchased firearms. Once the door to such suits is opened, it will not be long until America’s gun industry simply disappears. And as The Hill reported, this is why Bernie Sanders says Clinton’s gun control is all about “ending gun manufacturing in America.”
