Hillary Clinton cares about toddlers so much that she wants to grab your guns. She told the presidential debate audience that she supports gun control measures to keep guns out of hands because she wants to keep babies from shooting people.
Toddler involved shootings are horrible. Responsible firearms ownership means that babies should never have access to guns.
But let's look at the reality of Hillary Clinton’s “toddlers with guns” argument.
Best estimates from the Washington Post say there are 360 million guns in the United States right now - more guns than people But, with all those guns, only 51 toddlers were involved in shootings last year, in a country of 320 million people. Horrible, but statistically very low.
But if baby lives do really matter so much that Hillary Clinton would support gun grabbing measures, then why don’t baby lives matter enough for her to vote against partial birth abortion?
Twenty-two hundred such procedures are performed every year even after George W. Bush’s federal ban on them in 2003 - a ban Hillary opposed and still opposes.
Some estimates put the actual number in the tens of thousands, given how private abortion clinics in the U.S. operate with very little scrutiny and oversight. We know these procedures are happening illegally everyday.
Planned Parenthood was caught on tape selling baby parts obtained by abortions performed in this manner.
Abortionist and serial killer Kermit Gosnell is in jail for being really bad at killing babies before they made it all the way out of their mom’s bodies. He resorted to killing them on the operating table instead, when they had rights.
Way more baby lives are claimed this way than by Hillary’s dreaded babies with guns. And wherever you stand on the issue of abortion, sticking scissors into the heads of fully formed humans should shock you and sadden you.
Would it bother Hillary more if they used guns?
