Hillary Clinton, the current front runner for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, compared gun rights to terrorism in a recent CNN Town Hall.
Gail Santa Maria, a school teacher from Maryland, asked Hillary Clinton if reinstating the ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines would do any good towards stopping school shootings. Before Ms Santa Maria could finish her question, Clinton quickly responded, “Yes, Yes I do!”.
She continued by saying that she was “disappointed that congress did not pass universal background checks after the hoards of the..uh..shootings at Sandy Hook…”.
I don’t think any parent, any person, should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reasons — psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever it means — could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers
I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation, 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.
