“Would head-bobbing Hillary short-circuit American civil rights if she is elected president in November?” gun dean John M. Snyder asked here today
“No question,” said Snyder. “Clinton opposes the civil right to keep and bear arms as well as the civil right to freedom of religion. Her election would be a tragedy for America.
“Citizens should see Clinton for what she really is, and vote her into political darkness this fall.”
“Clinton is a proponent of Australian-style gun confiscation, abortion on demand, euthanasia, and same-sex marriage,” Snyder continued. “Clinton would nominate Supreme Court justices who would upend the right to keep and bear arms in defense of life and force churches to oppose the right to life itself.”
Snyder noted Life News recently headlined Hillary Clinton would “make Christians change their religious views to support abortion.”
He noted further American Values Action released a video showing Clinton stating that: “deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed,” “the unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” and “the only people that I would ever appoint to the Supreme Court are people who believe that Roe v. Wade is settled law.”
“On the other hand,” Snyder remarked, “presidential candidate Donald Trump’s vice presidential running mate, Mike Pence, declared Trump would nominate to the Court justices who would overturn Roe.”
Snyder said, “Hillary supports semiautomatic gun registration, universal background checks on all firearms transfers, and subjection of firearms manufacturers and dealers to frivolous third party lawsuits.”
Clinton has cited Australia’s anti-gun policy as “a good example” of gun control. She said, “The Australian government, as part of trying to clamp down on the availability of semiautomatic weapons, offered a good price for buying hundreds of guns. Then, they basically clamped down, going forward.”
Snyder called attention to a recent National Rifle Association statement indicating “Hillary Clinton does not believe in the Second Amendment. She does not believe in the U.S. Supreme Court decision that recognized a fundamental, constitutional right to have a firearm in one’s own home for self-defense. What she does believe in is the gun confiscatory gun control policies of Australia, a regime that so demonized and abused gun owners that a territorial ‘public service announcement’ even mocked them with the specter of a prison sentence should they fail to comply.”
Snyder said, “A Clinton presidency would be catastrophic for civil rights, especially the right to freedom of religion and the right to keep and bear arms. American voters hopefully will reject her candidacy in November and elect the right to life Trump-Pence right to keep and bear arms ticket.”
A practicing Catholic, Snyder has been named “the dean of Washington gun lobbyists” by the Washington Post and New York Times, “a champion of the right of self-defense” by the Washington Times, the “gun dean” by Human Events, and “the senior rights activist in Washington” by Shotgun News. The Trace recently designated him a power broker.
He holds AB and MA degrees in government from Georgetown University. He has been an NRA magazine editor and official of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Second Amendment Foundation. He directs Telum Associates, LL.C, and serves on boards of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, Council for America and American Federation of Police & Concerned Citizens.
