Would Hillary Take Away Your Guns in an Emergency? Yes.

Imagine and emergency situation where the social order has broken down and chaos reigns.  Imagine a time when the police cannot protect you or your family.  Imagine, as L.A. Times blogger Tim Cavanaugh invites us to imagine, the next Hurricane Katrina.  In such a situation, law abiding gun owners have the ability to lawfully protect themselves.

But if Hillary Clinton had her way, the government could take citizens' weapons in such situations.  In 2006, she voted against a measure in the Senate that prohibited confiscation of legal firearms during emergencies and major disasters.  Luckily, 84 senators (including, to their credit, John McCain and Barak Obama) voted for and passed the legislation.

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the rights of the people to keep and bear arms.  That right is fundamental to liberty.  The founding fathers had emergencies and disasters in mind when they legally protected your ability and my ability to defend ourselves, our families and our freedom.

Be wary of any politician who would vote to limit your Second Amendment rights and confiscate legal guns in an emergency.
