Hilary Clinton: Constitutional Rights subject to Reasonable Regulations

Hilary Clinton: Constitutional Rights subject to Reasonable Regulations

Published by Dana on 6th Jun 2016

Mrs. Cankles-in-a-Pantsuit has once again revealed how toxic she is to America. Could you just imagine if Trump suggested that a "reasonable regulation" was needed in regards to the First Amendment? Lefties would go nuts, songs would be written and Trump would be labeled a tyrant. But this is Hilary, so we expect nothing less. Here's her interview with George Stephanopoulos, take a look:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let’s talk about the Second Amendment. As you know, Donald Trump has also been out on the stump talking about the Second Amendment and saying you want to abolish the Second Amendment. I know you reject that. But I want to ask you a specific question: Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right — that it’s not linked to service in a militia?

CLINTON: 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. So I believe we can have common-sense gun-safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment. And, in fact, what I have proposed is supported by 90 percent of the American people and more than 75 percent of responsible gun owners. So that is exactly what I think is constitutionally permissible and, once again, you have Donald Trump just making outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue. But 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 [Bernie] Sanders voted for and I voted against, giving immunity from liability to gun makers and sellers. I think all of that can and should be done, and it is, in my view, consistent with the Constitution.

STEPHANOPOULOS: And, and the Heller decision also says there can be some restrictions. But that’s not what I asked. I said, “Do you believe their conclusion that the right to bear arms is a constitutional right?”

CLINTON: If it is a constitutional right, then it — like every other constitutional right — is subject to reasonable regulations. And what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possibly can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the republic, where some of the earliest laws that were passed were about firearms. So I think it’s important to recognize that reasonable people can say, as I do, responsible gun owners have a right. I have no objection to that. But the rest of the American public has a right to require certain kinds of regulatory, responsible actions to protect everyone else.

I'm sorry Hilary, what was that? You believe IF the Second Amendment is a Constitutional right, then it-like every other Constitutional Right- is subject to reasonable regulations?!? So not only do you not believe it is a Constitutional Right, but you think all Constitutional Rights should be reasonably regulated. Of course not in regards to yourself, but certainly for us common folk.

Here's a breakdown of the Bill of Rights:

1. Freedom of Religion, speech, press, assembly and petition.

2. Right to keep and bear arms in order to maintain a well regulated militia.

3. No quartering of soldiers.

4. Freedom from unreasonable search and seizures.

5. Right to due process of law, freedom from self-incrimination and double jeopardy.

6. Rights of accused person(s), right to a speedy and public trial.

7. Right of trial by jury in Civil cases.

8. Freedom from excessive bail, cruel and unusual punishment.

9. Other rights of the people not listed shall not be denied.

10.Powers reserved to the States.

Now imagine any circumstances in which any of these rights could be subject to reasonable regulation by our government. Is your blood boiling yet? It's terrifying that this woman could be the future leader of America.
