Today, somewhere in America, Hillary Clinton will likely fly on a private jet under the watchful eye of armed security. For the last 30 years, Clinton has enjoyed the safety that comes with her armed security detail.
She has never had to worry about being alone in her home in an emergency situation. Unlike most Americans, she does not have to think about dialing 911 if she hears the glass break downstairs at 2 o’clock in the morning. And she never has to wait the national average of 11 minutes from the time she calls for help to the time the police arrive.
Despite that reality, she doesn’t believe you and I have the individual right to keep firearms in our homes to protect ourselves and our families. So where does that leave us? It leaves us with Clinton’s vision for America — one set of rules for her and a different set for the rest of us.
It’s easy for Clinton to casually dismiss a right she’s never had to rely upon — and a right she’ll likely never have to use. Though Clinton might ask, “What difference does it make?” To you and me, access to firearms might make the difference between life and death.
