Clinton Warns Dems on Gun Control

obama-bill-clinton-wh-photo

In 1994, the GOP won an historic landslide and swept the Democrats in Congress from power. The victory was due, in large part, to a recent assault weapons ban that had been enacted. No doubt with this in mind, former President Bill Clinton last night warned top Democrat donors not to be dismissive of those who believe in gun rights.

“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said.

“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world.”

Speaking to members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, Clinton added that he has had “many sleepless nights” after Democrats were swept from power as a result of the vote to ban assault weapons. In addition to the GOP sweep in 1994, Clinton also recalled how Al Gore had lost the Presidency in 2000 because of his anti-gun views.

    He’s right It seems the communists have forgotten 1994 you can bet Harry Reid hasn’t he’s from a gun state.

    • TexasJester

      Harry has stated publicly that after Sandy Hook, his stance (on guns and gun control) is changing…. And not towards the good side.

  • Jack

    I’m glad someone remembers. This SOB of a president will not care. He thinks the Tea Party is dead for no one showed 2012. I only hope more states, more sheriff, nullify Obarry action on gun control. It’s going to come down to who act first, state or federal government.

  • fliteking

    Ob*ma is bent on disarming Conservative Christians . . . he won’t listen to Bill.

    Besides the gun control issue, there are other reasons why the Republicans took control of congress in Clintons’ third year. One was Hillary’s attempt at a univeral health bill, but the MAIN reason is, and I give credit to….RUSH LIMBAUGH. Rush had a TV show seen nationwide and he kept ‘exposing’ what Clinton and cohorts were up to, and the show was very popular. I credit Rush with much of the Republican gains that year.

    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.”  
    – Adolf Hitler 1933

    “A Nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious, but it can not survive TREASON FROM WITHIN… An enemy at the gates is less formidable for he is known and he carries his banners openly, but the traitor moves among those within the gate freely. His sly whispers rustling thru all the galleries, heard in every hall of government itself. For the traitor appears, not as a traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims and he wears their face and their garments. He appeals to the BASENESS that lies in the heart of all men. He rots the soul of a Nation. He works secretly and unknown in the night, to undermine the pillars of the city. He INFECTS THE BODY POLITIC, so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. ” 
    –  Cicero 42 B.C.
