Hillary Clinton and the 2nd amendment.
Hillary Clinton is caught on tape bashing the NRA and 2nd amendment. She does mention an AK-47 in this recording. The 2nd amendment does not specify what kinds of firearms you can or can not own or carry. Some American states allow constitutional carry where you need no permit to carry. This link shows some of the current gun laws and what states have constitutional carry.
Here is the audio clip of Hillary Clinton and her anti gun views.
Elected officials take an oath to support and defend The Constitution of The United States of America. An elected official needs to be true to that oath of office. That does not mean to pick and choose what parts you will support and defend.
Oath of Office for President of the United States
- US Constitution, Article II, Section 1
- “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
This is the actual 2nd amendment. This is what every president takes and oath to preserve, protect and defend. It does not say what kind of arms an American citizen can or can not keep and bear.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
