"Hillary Clinton Says Opponents Of Gun Control Laws ‘Terrorize’ Americans"
Teacher in the studio audience: Do you think that reinstating the ban on assault weapons and banning high capacity magazines would do any good?More in the write up on the interview is available here:
Clinton: Yes, I do. I do.
“We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said during a live CNN town hall. The comments were Clinton’s deepest foray into an exceedingly controversial political subject since leaving the State Department last year.
“I was disappointed that the Congress did not pass universal background checks after the horrors of the shootings at Sandy Hook,” she said in response to a question from a school teacher in the audience. “I don’t think any parent, or any person should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone for whatever reason, psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever, could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers.”
“I will speak out [on this subject] no matter what role I find myself in,” Clinton pledged, referring to her consideration of a presidential bid in 2016.Of course, I believe that Hillary is clearly knowingly lying when she talks about automatic weapons.

Here is an earlier comment from May by Hillary:
“We’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime,” she said. “And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”Among Clinton's other views, in 2008 she advocated:
-- "I will also work to reinstate the assault weapons ban. We had it during the 1990s. It really was an aid to our police officers, who are now once again, because it has lapsed--the Republicans will not reinstate it--are being outgunned on our streets by these military-style weapons."
-- She also supports licensing and registration of guns.
While Clinton was in the Senate she voted against prohibiting frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers, and also against prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers for “gun violence” cases.
