High-level Democrat operative Hillary Clinton set her sights on the Second Amendment Friday, remarking Americans should be barred from owning AR-15 rifles.
Echoing Joe Biden’s and other liberals’ calls for restrictions on so-called “assault weapons,” Clinton posted a tweet claiming, “No one actually needs an AR-15.”
The former secretary of state’s anti-gun opinion came on the heels of a speech by Biden unveiling new gun control proposals in the wake of the mass shooting at a Uvalde, Texas elementary school.
During an impromptu address Thursday evening, Biden outlined an eight-part initiative to rid the US of pesky “assault weapons” like AR-15s and AK-47s and “high capacity magazines” that hold more than 10 rounds, and also proposed raising the age of rifle and AR-15 ownership to 21.

Despite attempting to circumvent the Second Amendment, Biden assured Americans: “I want to be very clear, this is not about taking away anyone’s guns.”
“I respect the culture, tradition, the concerns of lawful gun owners,” he added.
Clinton expressed similar sentiments demonizing firearms and American ownership during a Democrat debate in December 2015, where – while surrounded by armed Secret Service agents – she claimed, “Guns, in and of themselves, in my opinion, will not make Americans safer. We lose 33,000 a people a year to gun violence, arming more people–to do what?–I think it’s not the appropriate response to terrorism.”
President Donald Trump responded to Clinton’s anti-gun comments on Facebook, saying, “Hillary said that guns don’t keep you safe. If she really believes that she should demand that her heavily armed bodyguards quickly disarm!”
