Hillary Remains Willing to Ignore Federal Firearms Law

by
May 8, 2016

Last week, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told viewers of an MSNBC “townhall” that her efforts to enact gun control would start her “very first day” as president. This week, a Washington Post article titled, “Can Clinton make good on immigration, guns?,” shed some light on her anti-gun plans. Rather than rely on the quaint notion that the legislative branch should be relied on to legislate, Clinton appears intent on bypassing Congress and pursuing her gun control agenda by executive fiat.

In describing her strategy, the article notes, “Clinton and her allies in and out of Congress are gradually building a legislative agenda that would focus on immigration issues in Congress while mostly relying on the executive power of the presidency to further gun restrictions that would have little chance of becoming law.”

Later on, the piece elaborates on one of Clinton’s contemplated executive measures, stating, “Clinton would go further than Obama to broaden requirements for background checks and narrow loopholes that allow largely unrestricted trafficking of guns online.” This is followed by a quote from Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon, who told the Post, “Building on the steps pursued by President Obama, Secretary Clinton will take administrative action to require that any person attempting to sell a significant number of guns be deemed ‘in the business’ of selling firearms.”

The contours of Clinton’s plan to restrict the private transfer of firearms are unclear, however, even more hazy is just where Clinton thinks she would obtain the authority for such an action.

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots! AND TYRANTS AND BUREAUCRAPS!!!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but 
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or 
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a 
check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not 
to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that 
was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from 
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty 
F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but 
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make 
you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is
 run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a 
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman 
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head 
searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but 
is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions 
of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his 
teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class 
in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more 
government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with 
Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free
 cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses 
but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to 
provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment 
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was 
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest 
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a 
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government 
forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a
 nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself 
makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

      Jeff Foxworthy (hope I spelled his name right) is the author.

      • Frank W Brown

        NOPE!! He has penned a few of these, but the majority have been penned by others!

  • Rodney Steward

    She’s already said she WILL get our guns, this is the main goal of the UN, world gun control and then you control the people!

    • CDD

      AMEN!
      It’s not about crime, as most liberals believe the law doesn’t apply to them.

      Its not about the children, as most liberals will fight to their last breath for the “right” to KILL children.

      Take those “reasons ” away, and POPULATION CONTROL is all that’s
      left…..

    Queen killary thinks she will be able to do what ever she wants by royal decree.

    • E Swisher

      Why not….Obaama has been doing so for over 7 years and our Republican “leaders” …I use that term very loosely… and Republican members of Congress have been letting Obaama have done nothing to stop it.

        UNCLE JOE IS A JOKE ALSO!!!!

        • E Swisher

          He has been so insignificant that I had al but forgotten about good old Uncle Joe.

  • Steve Gifford

    The biggest percentage of the population have watched as new anti American laws, executive orders, and downright voter fraud have reshaped the political landscape. Trump was successful in eliminating so many establishment politicians because the American people are very angry. We have not let up in our pursuit of returning our America back to a morally strong country. We need to inact ways to get people out of office midterm that have lied or have ignored the constitution. We can’t wait through full terms to vote them out. Look at the train wreck that is the Obama administration. There are political prisoners all over this country that are in prison some that are waiting for months and years for a trial on trumped up charges. While real criminals murderers rapists and drug dealers are being set free.

  • itsfun

    She is proving she is above the law, so laws and the Constitution mean nothing to her.

    • Charles

      Correction !! She thinks she and Slick Willy are above the law.

      • itsfun

        I hope you are right. As much time and the resources the FBI is using tells me she is guilty as hell. Problem is the AG has already said she doesn’t have to prosecute her just because the FBI recommends it and has the evidence to convict. I believe there is so much corruption in the Obama administration and Hillary knows where the skeletons are buried that Obama will never allow her to be prosecuted. The only answer is Trump, because he WILL prosecute her if the evidence is there and I believe it is.

        • E Swisher

          She definitely knows about skeletons… and the many that have committed an “Arkansas Suicide” on her behalf.

    • E Swisher

      She has already had 30+ years of proving she is above the law… why should she think otherwise? Our illustrious Republican majority will roll over for her like they have for Obaama.

      • itsfun

        Hate to agree, but you are probably right.

  • David Stewart

    She’s get the authority from the same place Odumbo got his; out of his little twisted mind!

    • THE TROUBLE IS THAT OBAMA IS GETTING AWAY WITH IT BECAUSE THE REPUBLICANS WHO CONTROL BOTH HOUSES DO NOTHING … THEY COULD HAVE STOPPED ALL FUNDING FOR ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE, THEY COULD HAVE ALREADY CHARGED OR BEGUN IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS, PARTICULARLY CHARGED HIM WITH TREASON … BUT THE PUCILANMOUS SCUMBAGS WE CALL OUR GOVERNMENT ARE BIGGER CROOKS THAN HILLARY BECAUSE THEY CONTINUE TO EMPOWER THESE TWO CRIMINALS … SO IF THE REPUBLICANS CONTINUE TO BE STUPID FOOLS AND FIGHT TRUMP … YOUR WILL SEE YOU GUNS DISAPPEAR AND YOUR FREEDOM IN A CONTINUAL ATTENUATION UNTIL YOU HAVE NONE.
