One of the most vitriolic ‘gun control’ advocates in the nation, Hillary Clinton, has completely adopted the ‘guns for me, but not for thee’ mentality… the same person who has not driven a car since the 1990s, and has had armed security since she was the First Lady of Arkansas.
Most all of the leftist government ‘elite’ gun-grabbers either have their own firearms and/or have armed bodyguards surrounding them as they go about their daily lives. Seems a little hypocritical doesn’t it?
Having just read a statistic indicating that concealed-carry license holders are the most law-abiding people in America, it is appalling how people like HRC continue to attack our 2nd Amendment rights at every corner and every opportunity – while they themselves are protected in a cocoon of bodyguards with guns.
An Inconvenient Truth
(by Jordan Stein, Gun Owners of America)
To some media hosts, the idea of an ordinary citizen carrying a gun in public is absolutely ridiculous.
The media is preconditioned to treat guns as ‘evil killing machines’ that wreak immense havoc and have little social utility at all.
But the oh-so-inconvenient truth, to the media pundits’ dismay, is that guns are used to save far more lives than they take.
According to President Obama’s own Center for Disease Control, guns are used in self-defense 500,000 to 3 million times a year.
Contrast this with the approximately 8,100 murders that were committed with all types of firearms in 2014, according the FBI.
How many of those lives were taken by so-called ‘assault weapons’ in 2014?
According the the FBI, about one-third as many people were killed with rifles — of which AR-15 styled firearms are a subset — as were killed by fists and feet.
That would be 660 lives taken by bare hands and feet, compared to only 248 murders with rifles.
Another inconvenient truth for the media is Chicago.
It’s commonly known that despite having some of the strictest gun control in the country, they consistently have some of the highest murder rates.
If gun control truly worked as advertised, the Windy City would be one of the safest places in the country.
But what can you expect from these out-of-touch hosts and politicians? They are so far removed from reality that they cannot possibly understand why anyone would need a firearm.
