Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has stated that she has considered mandatory gun-buy back measure once adopted in Australia.
She stated this on Friday during a campaign stop in Keene, N.H., when an attendee asked about Australia’s 1996 and 2003 buy-back programs that collected roughly 700,000 banned semi-automatic rifles and other firearms.
“I think it would be worth considering doing it on the national level, if that could be arranged,” Clinton responded.
According to the executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action Chris Cox who is not in support of Clinton’s proposal, he stated that “This validates what the NRA has said all along,The real goal of gun control supporters is gun confiscation.”
Cox believes Clinton’s comments echo recent comments by President Obama, making “very clear” that the underlying goal of gun-control advocates is confiscation.
“Hillary Clinton just doesn’t get it,” Cox said. “The NRA’s strength lies in our five million members and the tens of millions of voters who support the Second Amendment.
“A majority of Americans support this freedom, and the Supreme Court was absolutely right to hold that the Second Amendment guarantees the fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms,” he also added. “Hillary Clinton’s extreme views are completely out of touch with the American people.”
