(Breitbart) – On May 6th, Hillary Clinton gave a speech at a National Council for Behavioral Health conference in which she suggested that “fully licensed” and “fully validated” gun owners cannot be trusted to make sound decisions regarding gun usage.
According to Politico, Clinton’s said:
At the rate we’re going, we’re going to have so many people with guns everywhere, fully licensed, fully validated, in settings where [one] could be in a movie theater, and they don’t like someone chewing gum loudly or talking on their cell phone and decide they have the perfect right to defend themselves against the gun chewer or cell phone user by shooting.
As Breitbart News reported, Clinton also criticized lenient gun laws in her May 6th speech. Saying the idea “that almost anyone can have a gun anywhere at any time” has “become almost an article of faith.”
She suggested that this is not beneficial and that gun laws need to be “reined in.”
