Presumed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton held a staged townhall meeting on CNN today. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour made sure that CNN lived up to the “Clinton News Network” nickname that the network earned during Bill Clinton’s two terms in the presidency, tossing softball questions to Mrs. Clinton and cheerleading for yet another Clinton presidency.

The subject turned to the Second Amendment, gun rights and the National Rifle Association. Clinton offered a quote in which she directly assaulted the First and Second Amendments simultaneously.

Wait, what? Americans have the right, given to us not by government but by our Creator, to hold points of view whether the majority agrees with us or not. That right is protected from government by the First Amendment to the Constitution.

Hillary’s statement brings up a terrifying question: What steps would President Hillary Clinton take to prevent Americans from holding a “viewpoint?”

“I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

It seems to go even deeper: we're not allowed to merely hold an opposing opinion.

When one speaks off-the-cuff, without planning or preparation, one is more likely to say what they really feel. For example, OhBummer has said some of the most outlandish things when he had no teleprompter (i.e. "I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody" to Joe 'the Plumber' and "If you've got a business, you didn't build that").

The Liberals/Progressives do this E-V-E-R-Y- T-I-M-E they open their mouths without fail: HRC on 2A rights: "We cannot let a minority of people hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people"

My God, how willfully ignorant are the voters in this country who would elect such two-faced idiots to rule over them? A "minority" of people? So what she's saying is a "majority" of people agree with her. So why is it so hard to pass confiscation-type bills if SOOOO many people agreed with her? The only idiots who agree with her are the same people who suspend a child that had fingers . . . or a cookie. That's the insanity. That's Liberalism/Progressivism. Compounded by psychological projection: you consciously flip the narrative, distort it, accuse the other side of what you wish they would be like then LIE to the mindless automatons (haven't used that much since the Disco Era!) that worship your ignorance.

I am no fan of Hillary, but you can't hold an idle comment like that against her. It's hard to be precise in everything you say in public. She should be given a chance to clarify what she meant.

You realize I guess that if Hillary can't be more precise in her comments she should not be President? Isn't that a major flaw in our current POTUS?

Much like our President, Progressives say anything they want, then say something completely different when the situation sours. Sorry, crowhill, no excuse. She is a goddess of the Left and should be held accountable since most of what she says IS scripted pablum. I don't think Biden would say such a deceitful thing . . . on second thought, he's just as stupid. These people have no vested interest in anything other than getting elected . . . and then they ACT upon the stupid things they've said! And then can't even get it right . . . heard of Obamacare?

An idle comment is exactly where you will find unguarded moments and this is where you will find what a person really thinks.... and do not try to rationalize your own verbage into what she said....
She said, HRC on 2A rights: "We cannot let a minority of people hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people"..... Now let those words sink in to your soul and now look at what Obama has been doing to our Nation....
Who is under attack in the Military and who is attacking?
Who is under attack and who is attacking in LGBT issues?
Who is under attack and who is attacking in Christian issues?
What was it, HRC on rights: "We cannot let a minority of people hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people"
The issues above were all done with Hillary as the Sect of State and now we have John 'Swift Boat' Kerry in that position and the drumbeat continues....with what Hillary says cannot happen..... Hilary is a natural born liar and has been every day of her life.... Where were the records on the misdeeds in Arkansas which magically appeared on a table in the WH as soon as the statute of limitations ran out.... You and I both know where they were, under Hillary's bed. And where did she get the records? Out of the office of Vince Foster after he was murdered as he was leaving the administration to go back to Arkansas.... Oh yes, let us all vote for this lying crooked woman to become the new POTUS as the lying fool we elected in 08 is leaving.....

agree - - the context is about her not wanting the 'minority' viewpoint to terrorize the so-called 'majority' - - not about controlling viewpoints. This is how conspiracy theories start.

A lot of effort has been expended, both by politicians and by the media, to make people fear guns. Unless the people fear "guns," rather than "criminals with guns," it will be difficult to confiscate the guns of law-abiding people (even if one of those law-abiding people might save your life).

A little education might alleviate the people's fear of "guns." Heck, I'd be in favor of a law requiring all citizens to own a gun and take a course in its use. Bet the gun lobby won't get THAT one passed.

It works in Switzerland and it sure kept the Nazis out in WWII... We have 300 million citizens and 150 million able to handle a gun. Sounds like a real good law to me.... Except we all have our God given right to Freedom in all things, so the government cannot force anyone to carry a gun for defense or any other reason... Nor can the government stop anyone from doing the very same thing, it is called our right to defend our self and our property.

I agree in spirit, al003. But the "Nor can the government stop anyone" comment is relative. On paper, you're right. But with a pen or a phone since Constitutionality seems to be an afterthought as of late, don't get lulled into the security of tradition. Not much of that going around in the Beltway these days. I'm not saying banning or severe restriction would ultimately REMAIN successful, but we're dealing with people who want to use our system of Law much like we would use toilet paper in the privy.
