CLINTON: TERRORISM CAN ONLY BE DEFEATED BY COLLECTING ALL GUNS IN AMERICA
Hillary Clinton made another erroneously incompetent statement this past weekend. While some cannot believe she made these statements publicly, others see this as foreshadowing to what she will do to this country if she becomes our next president.
Clinton argued that the only way we can defeat terrorism is to limit and restrict guns in this country.
AARP Bulletin asked, “What would you do to address terrorism?”
Well, these are legitimate fears. I believe that people are rightly concerned about violence. Terrorism is part of that violence, and we have to do the best job we can to keep America safe. So I’ve laid out a very comprehensive plan about taking on the terrorists, going after them where they operate, doing everything we can to take away their territories so they can’t mastermind attacks from afar. But we also have to go after them online because that is where they recruit, radicalize and direct attacks. And we need to do a better job of getting there early, rooting out people who are vulnerable and preventing that from happening.
But I’m looking at violence broadly. … It’s also why I’ve advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loophole—because, you know, it’s not only terrorists we need to be worried about.

One could also argue the same thing when analyzing the Paris terrorist attacks. Paris, France has background checks in place that are more comprehensive than those
