At a “gun violence” forum in Port Washington, N.Y. a Hillary Clinton supporter declared that gun and ammunition manufacturers are “making terrorists out of” Americans.
So did the “t”-word, used to describe American gun owners, rankle Clinton who can’t bring herself to use it to describe Islamic terrorism?
Not quote. A video of the exchange shows Clinton nodding her head in agreement.
Via the Daily Caller:
Hillary Clinton nodded in emphatic approval on Monday as one of her supporters claimed that gun and ammunition manufacturers “are making terrorists out of our citizens.”
“If we all get angry enough we can start saving lives and stop making … our citizens are the terrorists,” said a woman who took part in a gun violence forum in Port Washington, N.Y.
The woman and four others were joined on the panel by Clinton and New York Rep. Steve Israel.
“We’re so worried about terrorism but we have terrorism on our own soil. Our gun manufacturers, our ammunition manufacturers are making terrorists out of our citizens. A sobering fact,” the panelist continued.
“Go online,” she said as Clinton continued to nod approvingly. “Go buy a semi-automatic weapon. They’re all available online with not much to prove because mom and pop somewhere out there are making them, and there’s nothing to prevent people who are mentally ill and people who are on terrorist watch lists to making our citizens become terrorists.”
Of course, this is nothing new on the left. In 2011, the Democrats, the media, and our own president actively compared Tea Party members to terrorists.
Remember President Obama declaring after the Gabby Giffords shooting that we need to talk “with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds?” Maybe Clinton and her supporters would do well to follow that advice.
