One of the hot button issues this presidential election on the minds of voters is gun control.
Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s proposals to curb gun-related violence focus on closing loop holes in current legislation to prevent criminals from obtaining firearms, banning high-caliber assaults weapons and devoting more resources and attention to mental health access.
Here is a rundown of where Hillary Clinton stands on gun control:
Further, she says that she wants to close what she calls the “Charleston loophole,” which allows a gun sale to proceed without a full background check if the check isn’t completed within three days.
The Charleston loophole refers to Dylann Roof, the man accused of killing nine people inside a Charleston, South Carolina, church in June 2015. Roof was allowed to legally purchase a firearm despite a drug arrest months earlier. That arrest did not appear on his background check.
Let’s talk about this again. The “Charleston” loophole was a CLERICAL error. The system in place failed the victims of Emmanuel, not the background check itself. The clerk NEGLECTED to report the drug arrest for it to show up on his background check. This is sign that the system needs audited and fixed under current legislation. I feel the real aim of closing this “loophole” is to tax and record private gun sales. When I hear universal background checks and amending legislation to track people’s health records to declare them fit or not to be a firearm owner, there’s a huge problem here.
Universal background checks would need a firearm registry. Which you know they want, because they want to confiscate and ban “assault” (modern sporting/AR-15s, et al) rifles. I wonder if that includes the .22 caliber ones? Hmm, because we’re going based on looks, correct?
Have you been to the pediatrician lately? Has the good doctor asked you if there are firearms in your home? Guess what, along with your answers about alcohol, they are reporting your answers.
Hillary Clinton wants the same as she has always wanted, power and money. She was dead broke coming out of the White House as First Lady, remember? But she understands the middle class struggle with Obamacare and the immediate JUMP in healthcare costs once it was instated. The same bill that was “just pass it, we’ll read it all later.”
Trump is not a saint, never thought he was. I do truly believe he wants to help America as President. I know Congress will give him hell and he’ll be critiqued to the hilt. Whomever thinks that those in higher political offices are not narcissistic, you’re kidding yourself. Trump is not a presenter, he is a business man. We haven’t had a candidate in this election cycle that I was ‘excited’ about at all. I want us to stop being the nanny-state to the world and our citizens. I know without a doubt, America is in grave danger with Hillary as president.
