Both Obama and Hillary have been talking about the “Australian Experience” where that nation confiscated all guns. The gist of their thrust is that is what they would like to do. And Obama and Hillary if she becomes President would do it by Executive Action. Doing so would be a repudiation of the 2nd Amendment, that is a violation of the Consitution. Of course, that means nothing to the Left.
Obama has violated the Constitution numerous times and no one has ever called him on it. No one has taken him to court. No one has dared to sue the President of the United States for the violation of his oath to uphold the Constitution. We have let him get away with it. The consequences are now that if Hillary succeeds Obama she will be allowed to get away with it also
WELCOME TO THE BANANA REPUBLIC CALLED THE UNITED STATES
HILLARY CLINTON: AUSTRALIA GUN BAN ‘WORTH LOOKING AT’ IN U.S.
Clinton made these statements in response to a questioner who asked if we could ban handgun ownership in the U.S.
Reading from a card, the elderly questioner asked: “[Regarding] handguns…Australia recently managed to take away tens of thousands–even millions–of handguns, and in one year they were all gone. Can we do that? And if we can’t, why can’t we?”
You know, Australia’s a good example, Canada’s a good example, [and] the UK’s a good example. Why? Because each of them had mass killings, Australia had a huge mass killing about 20 or 25 years ago. Canada did as well, so did the UK. In reaction, they passed much stricter gun laws. In the Australian example, as I recall, that was a buyback program. The Australian government as part of trying to clamp down on the availability of…weapons offered a good price for buying hundreds of thousands of guns and basically clamped down going forward, in terms of having more of a background check approach–more of a permitting approach.
Clinton suggested that by using a buyback to confiscate guns “the [Australian] government was able to curtail the supply and set a different standard for gun purchases in the future.” She went on to say “it would be worth considering doing it on the national level” here.
On October 3, Breitbart News reported that President Obama hinted at Australian-like gun confiscation in reaction to the heinous attack at Umpqua Community College.
We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours — Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it.
Again at another gathering Hillary repeated the same message. Breitbart reports again:
HILLARY CLINTON: GUN CONFISCATION WOULD BE LIKE A GOVERNMENT ‘CASH FOR CLUNKERS’
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says her gun confiscation plan would be like a government “Cash for Clunkers.”
“Australia is a good example, Canada is a good example, the UK is a good example,” Clinton said at a town hall Friday in New Hampshire, referring to mass shootings in those countries.
“That was a buyback program. The Australian government as part of trying to clamp down on the availability of automatic weapons offered a good price for buying hundreds of thousands of guns and they basically clamped down going forward” on gun control, Clinton said.
“Communities have done that in our country,” Clinton said.
Clinton noted Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” car buyback program as a good example for gun control.
