May 9, 2016—Jacob Hornberger, president of the Future of Freedom Foundation, doesn’t trust Trump or Clinton to refrain from enacting more gun control.
For the last 12 months, gun sales have been going through the roof every single month, and I think the reason for this is that people are perceiving that whoever is elected president, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump or any of the other candidates, that there are going to be significant gun control measures that are gonna be proposed.
Now with Hillary, it’s a no-brainer. I mean, I think she would love the type of society that exists in Cuba. And not just economically, with socialist welfare state programs like Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid, farm subsidies, and the like, but also with respect to guns. In Cuba, it’s illegal for the citizens to own guns, and so only the government officials own guns and not surprisingly then, when the little Cuban tyrants issue their orders, the Cuban citizens willingly obey.
Now with Donald Trump, it seems to me it may be the same thing. When Ted Cruz accused Donald Trump of having New York values, I think in terms of gun control. In New York City, they have one of the strictest gun bans in the country, one where the violent criminals are walking around with guns, but not the peaceful law-abiding people who are scared of being convicted of a felony.
So, regardless of who’s elected president, I think you’re going to see with the onslaught of the first gun massacre under that presidency, significant efforts to implement gun control measures in the United States once again, regardless whether it’s Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton that’s president, and so these people that are out there buying those guns are acting very rationally.
