View Full Version : NRA-ILA: Bill Clinton Wants A New Gun Ban

02-07-2009, 7:21 PM
With President Barack Obama stating that his “urban agenda” includes reimposing the former federal ban on “assault weapons” and “large” magazines, it’s out-of-date to refer to that law as it was known at the time--the Clinton Gun Ban.

On second thought, maybe not just yet.

In January, speaking at a meeting of the anti-gun U.S. Conference of Mayors, former president Bill Clinton took credit for the old ban, praised the Brady Campaign for continuing to lobby Congress for a new ban, and suggested that the mood in Washington might be more favorable toward a ban now than it had been during the last eight years.

What's funny about this is that Clinton has said many times that the old ban cost Democrats Senate and Congressional seats and that maybe they shouldn't have done it. Then again, we are talking about Bill Clinton and Democrats. If they would have the brains to learn from their own mistakes they wouldn't be Democrats, right?

Obama talked smack about Hillary all campaign. Bill is thinking about karma.

Interesting conspiracy theory, but doesn't have anything to do with reality. Bill have other ways to undermine the President if he wants to; just think about how many of his appointees are working now in the Obama cabinet.

Bill needed something to get him out of the house. Ever since Lewinsky, his wife has been a little icy, and things are getting a little awkward. So he went around town looking for some friends to hang out with, but no one wants him except Brady.

Bill can want every male in the country to wear pink tutus. It doesn't mean it will happen. Obama isn't about to put a highly charismatic individual as Bill Clinton in any kind of position to upstage him or his agenda. He put the Hildebeast in as SecState to keep her out of his way and under his control. If she goes off the trail, he fires her and ends her political career for good. He's not about to give Bill any visibility he doesn't have to.

Chalk this one up to conspiracy theory.

no surprise that he wants another gun ban. look at the way Congress is made up and the voting record of Obama.
