Clinton wants ‘common sense’ gun reform after Charleston massacre

SAN FRANCISCO – In South Carolina, bells pealed as Sunday church services resumed at the historic church where nine black people were killed by a gunman last week.

Hundreds of worshipers gathered to sing hymns in honor of their fallen brethren.

America was rocked by this latest incident of gun violence perpetrated by 21-year old Dylann Roof who said he wanted to “kill black people”.

The Charleston massacre was in the mind of Democratic Presidential Contender Hillary Clinton, as she addressed the U.S. Conference of Mayors in San Francisco.

While she said she respects responsible gun owners, Clinton made an emotional appeal for gun reform.

“It makes no sense that we can’t keep guns out of the hands of bad people,” said Clinton. “That is a rebuke to the nation we care about. We can’t give up. The stakes are too high. I will keep on fighting for common sense reforms for all those affected by senseless gun violence.”

Quoting scriptures, Clinton said the incident displayed the finest and the worst in America.

“Nine people of faith welcomed a person to prayer and fellowship,” said Clinton. “For those of us who are Christians, we remember scripture: I was hungry and you gave me food. I was a stranger and you welcomed me. That is humanity at its best. That is America at its best.”

Clinton also said, despite having elected its first black president, America’s long-standing racial struggle is far from over.

It seems Clinton is injecting more messages in her campaign that appeal to America’s heart.

A recent CNN ORC poll shows less people believe that Clinton cares for them today at 47 percent, compared to 53 percent a year ago.

And yet, in the same survey, Clinton remains the clear frontrunner among democratic presidential contenders leading at 60 percent with Joe Biden following at 14 percent.

It’s a different case in the crowded field of republican presidential contenders where no one has pulled ahead of the pack yet.

Clinton continues to make her way across the U.S. as campaigning intensifies in the coming weeks.

Hillary Clinton made an emotional appeal to America for more humanity and kindness in the wake of the Charleston Church massacre. A message that she hopes will resonate with voters in her bid for the presidency.

    killery clunker always take advantage of tragedy involving two contentious race in america which is between blacks / whites. killery is positioning self right in front of the black voters, as if she is the chosen one, who will champion for the blacks against the white murderers, and the RACISTS, that’s well / alive in america. if you believed such bullcraps of killery clunker, then you all will believed the midwest states are blessed with beaches, just like HI, if not better. if the terrorist shooter in SC was black killing black church members, we will not even be hearing from this liar, fake woman. case in point, the blacks killing blacks in chicago are out of control with the deaths among blacks are in an all time high, yet this double crosser woman aspiring to be the first woman POTUS has not condemn the violence of free for all killings of the black gangs murderers. so, black lives does not matter if the killings are done by other blacks, then its okay?. obobo and the rest of the liberal clown demoncraps supposedly governing chicago can’t take the grip of law / order, with criminals smuggled guns, like the business of gun exchange among criminals statewide or other countries like mexico, central america.

    killery clunker, and the demoncraps solutions to gun violence in america is to attack the second amendment. killery talked of gun reform is rewriting the constitution. the liberals are so retarded, that they think gun reform is so simple to do, without regards on infringing into individuals rights, the rights to bear arms to protect self, first / foremost against a commie, dictator government. the foolishness of killery clunker is not going to work on well informed, intelligent black voters, who knew gun control is not the answer to the gun violence of blacks killed, statistically the highest compared to whites. blacks, whites or whatever ethnicities supporters of the second amendment also knew the court system plagued with too many liberal judges are not handing the full extent punishments of the laws required to keep killers the maximum time in prison, as well as the too liberal laws are too soft for harden criminals. lenient laws must be amended to keep hardcore criminals inside prison for life or death sentence as murderers. the laws are already in the books for criminals in possession of guns is a felony, yet the laws are not strictly enforced unless its suits the complainants, the question of why the chicago black gang bangers murderers are not in jail, why are these black criminals still on the loose, freely killing their own. the constitution is for citizens equality, thus for killery to say gun reform is to keep guns away from criminals is a trick, the same will apply to law abiding citizens in the long run or as time passes, their rights to bear arms are flush in the toilets. the government then is now in full control of the people who follows the rule of laws. the killers without guns can use other deadly weapons such as homemade bombs, like what the boston marathon terrorists used to mass murders people in the crowd, knives or other sharp objects like ice picks, fire or flames, acids, etc. really / truly gun control do not solve the problem of man or men, woman or women, child or children killing another man or men / woman or women / child or children / animals. the alternative weapons are as deadly or worst.
