In a recent CNN town hall meeting, Hillary Clinton, who looks more and more like the leading Democratic presidential candidate for 2016, said this about gun control:
“We cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”
When I read (and re-read) that, the image in my mind was the huge crowd outside the NRA convention in Indianapolis.
Or the 5 people who showed up last August to protest the thousand inside the GeorgiaCarry convention.
Time and again, this numerical disparity is demonstrated. A minority of misinformed people ranting about
- Background checks – we already must have them
- Automatic weapons – already heavily regulated, unless you can manage to buy them in Mexico from the BATF.
- Gun Show loopholes – which don’t exist
Yes, for once, I agree with Her Majesty. It’s time for the minority to shut the hell up.
