On Friday, February 06, 2009, speaking at a meeting of the anti-gun U.S. Conference of Mayors, former president Bill Clinton had this to say:
"We're now in a position to begin again. It's not a leftward movement. It's a forward, communitarian movement. Communitarianism is a movement that considers individualism an impediment to society uniformly adopting values the movement considers appropriate, including authoritarian gun control. For example, the Communitarian Network platform states, 'there is little sense in gun registration. What we need to significantly enhance public safety is domestic disarmament of the kind that exists in practically all democracies.'"
Mr. Clinton also praised President Obama's selection of Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State, a position in which Mrs. Clinton could lend support to international efforts to impose gun prohibitions domestically.
He also took credit for the old ban, praised the Brady Campaign for continuing to lobby Congress for a new ban, and suggested that the mood in Washington might be more favorable toward a ban now than it had been during the last eight years.
Wow...That last underlined statement is very concerning...
