A Maryland school teacher asked Hillary if she thought banning “assault weapons” or “high capacity” magazines “would do any good.” Hillary said, “Yes,” then expounded:
First of all, I think as a teacher or really any parent, what’s been happening with these school shootings should cause everybody to just think hard. We make hard choices and we balance competing values all the time. And I was disappointed that the Congress did not pass universal background checks after the horrors of the shootings at Sandy Hook, and now we’ve had more in the time since. And I don’t think any parent–any person–should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reason–psychological, emotional, political, [ideological], whatever it means–could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers.
Clinton went on to say, “We cannot let a minority of people… hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”
