Hey Hillary, is gun ownership a constitutionally protected right?

She sure uses a lot of words to say 'no.' 

Chelsea Clinton told you that, once elected, her 'mom's supreme court' would overturn DC vs. Heller.  Then, this audio resurfaced in which Hillary claimed the Supreme Court was "wrong" on the 2nd Amendment. Those two statements (and dozens of less obvious moments) have made it painfully clear that, should she take the oval office, Hillary intends to decimate the 2nd Amendment.

At this point, there's simply no question about it. Hillary doesn't think the right to bear arms is an individual right and, the second she gets the chance, she'll do everything in her power to diminish or eliminate private firearm ownership.

However, if you'd like more evidence of this inarguable fact, George Stephanopoulos has some for you. Yesterday on "This Week" he lobbed Hillary the following softball: "Do you believe an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right - that it's not linked to service in a militia?"

Her answer is telling:

That response is long, tortured, and obviously designed to dodge the question but, if you're trying to divine her core beliefs, there's really only one sentence you need to hear.

"If it is a constitutional right, then it like every other constitutional right is subject to reasonable regulations."

Hillary's "IF" says it all.  

Once you cut away all the noise and parse the Clintonian doublespeak, what you're left with is the fact that Hillary will never acknowledge that firearm ownership is an individual right. The very idea that you should be able to defend yourself against criminals or your own government is anathema to her statist being. You are a subject of the glorious state, and you have no right to do anything which would give you even a slim hope of defying your betters.

In Clintonland, "If" means: "Well, according to some evil right wingers on the court, it's a right at the moment.  But don't you worry, there's no such thing as settled law if I disagree with the ruling. Those horrible people who own guns will be neutered soon. 'If' it's a right, it won't be when I'm through with it."

Be sure to "like" Robert Laurie over on Facebook and follow him on Twitter. You'll be glad you did.  

P.S. Don't forget: Gun owners aren't the only human beings who have no rights in Hillary's America.
