Clinton Won’t Shoot Straight About Second Amendment

A gun-rights group is warning that Hillary Clinton has made it clear she’s an enemy of the Second Amendment.

During the June 4 interview with George Stephanopoulos, Clinton refused to say if gun ownership is a constitutional right.

“If it is a constitutional right,” she told Stephanopoulos, then it’s “subject to reasonable regulations.”

Although Stephanopoulos has been criticized for his ties to the Clinton’s, he pushed Hillary Clinton to answer his question – twice.

“Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right, that it’s not linked to service in a militia?” he first asked.

But the Democratic presidential candidate dodged the direct question, describing a “nuanced reading” of the Second Amendment “until the decision by the late Justice Scalia,” a likely reference to the Heller decision in 2008 that was hailed by Second Amendment advocates.

Stephanopoulos continued to push for a direct answer, however, mentioning Heller and its allowance for restrictions on gun ownership.

“But that’s not what I asked,” he said. “I said do you believe their conclusion that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right?”
