During an October 7 campaign rally in Iowa, Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton addressed Ben Carson’s calls to arm students for self-defense by saying the idea of arming more people to stop mass shootings is “illogical” and “offensive.”
According to Real Clear Politics, Clinton stood in front of rally attendees and said, “You’ve got people running for president on the other side who say, well, you know, we just need more guns.” She then added, “The idea that you need more guns to stop people who are committing mass shootings is not only illogical but offensive.”
These comments come just days after Clinton called for new regulations on guns shows and guns sold online, and for an expansion of the definition of domestic violence to include dating relationships, thereby potentially barring a whole new demographic from owning guns for self-defense. She wants to lengthen the instant background check process indefinitely by changing the amount of time the FBI has to conduct extended checks. And she wants to change the law so that shooting victims and their families can sue gun manufacturers after criminals like Adam Lanza steal guns and misuse them or gunmen like Chris Harper Mercer open fire illegally in a gun free zone.
