“Nothing is ever solved when you have a gun in your hand.”
Bonnie Schaefer, a member of the Democratic Party’s platform committee, recently said that, in her opinion, no one should own a gun. As you absorb this story, bear in mind that her statement wasn’t caught on a hidden camera. This was said plainly and openly as if she was opining on her favorite kind of music.
Aaron Kliegman reported at the Washington Free Beacon:
DNC Platform Committee Member Doesn’t Think ‘Anyone Should Have a Gun’
A member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee said at a planning event Wednesday that she does not believe anyone in the United States should own a gun.
“I really don’t personally think anyone should have a gun,” Bonnie Schaefer, former Claire’s Stores CEO and North Carolina resort and spa owner, said. “I mean that’s just my own philosophy.”
Schaefer proceeded to argue that nothing good can come from having guns available to the public.
“Nothing is ever solved when you have a gun in your hand, except the worst possible scenario,” she added.
Schaefer’s comments came during a discussion about gun violence in relation to the Democratic Party’s 2016 platform at the Mid-Atlantic Democratic Platform Forum in Washington, D.C.
Watch the video:
One has to wonder if Ms. Schaefer’s opinion extends to the Secret Service members who routinely protect politicians while armed with guns or the armed guards who protect the Democratic Party’s many celebrity donors.
While we’re on the subject, let’s not discount the position of the presumptive Democratic nominee.

Four ways Hillary Clinton will work to end gun ownership as president
On Sunday, Hillary Clinton just couldn’t bring herself to say on ABC’s “This Week” that Americans have an individual right to own guns. But it didn’t stop her from denying Donald Trump’s claim that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. Clinton accused Trump of making “outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue.”
From changing the Supreme Court to make it possible to again ban guns in the United States to making it more costly to own guns, I predict that a President Hillary Clinton will do four things to either ban guns or at least reduce gun ownership, especially for poor people:
1. Sunday, George Stephanopoulos pushed Clinton twice on whether people have a right to own guns on ABC News’ “This Week”: “But that’s not what I asked. I said do you believe that their conclusion that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right?” Clinton could only say: “If it is a constitutional right…”
But to anyone familiar with the Supreme Court rulings on the Second Amendment, Clinton clearly indicated that she would appoint Supreme Court Justices who will allow gun bans.
Do read the whole thing.
Hillary may not be able to abolish the Second Amendment, but she can make it near to impossible for average Americans to buy and own guns.
