Interesting. Bill Clinton knows the power of this issue in many parts of the country. Many of the liberals who never get outside of their Leftist enclaves have no idea how strong the support for the 2nd Amendment is across America.
At a gathering of top Democratic donors, former President Bill Clinton issued a warning today that President Obama’s Gun Control push could very well cost some Democrats in Congress their jobs in 2014 – if they choose to vote with Obama:
POLITICO: Former President Bill Clinton warned a group of top Democratic donors at a private Saturday meeting not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among many Americans.
“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said.
“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world. . . .
And Clinton said that passing the 1994 federal assault weapons ban “devastated” more than a dozen Democratic lawmakers in the 1994 midterms — and cost then-Speaker of the House Tom Foley (D-Wash.) his job and his seat in Congress. . . .
Clinton closed his remarks with a warning to big Democratic donors that ultimately many Democratic lawmakers will be defeated if they choose to stand with the president. “Do not be self-congratulatory about how brave you for being for this” gun control push, he said. “The only brave people are the people who are going to lose their jobs if they vote with you.” . . .

Ah, the FIRST first-black-president. The gun-control zealot who led a 51-day military siege of a church in Texas, slaughtering over 76 citizens, including 20 children and 2 pregnant women. All for the horrible crime of being weirdos. All to peddle the Dem'RATs' federal gun-control plans. Then there was Clinton's Ruby Ridge mayhem. Targeting a law-abiding US Green Beret veteran through a three-YEAR-long ATF/FBI psy-ops program. Ending in a 10 day seige, where several hundred government gun-nuts executed his unarmed wife, his son and his dog too. All, later revealed in congressional testimony, for the express purpose of peddling federal gun-control. The saddest bit is the "free press" of Dem'RAT guard dogs rebuilt the image of that impeached, disbarred, disgraced, horny-hick from Arkansas. So, we're STILL stuck with his communist wife. You know, the depraved nitwit who helped raise the black flag of al-Qeada over the US embassy in Benghazi, and over the corpse of a US diplomat. Dem'RATs -- the gift that keeps taking.
The Mistake Mr. Clinton makes is simply this, Guns are not a "Culture", they are a RIGHT. The Second Amendment clearly states this. It is an ongoing attempt to dumb the American public down to the point they believe it is just a lifestyle choice, it is not. His comments on people who do not live in an area with a large police presence is ludicrous at best. With police response anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour is a reason to own a gun not a culture or lifestlye choice. The RIGHT to defend yourself is not a "Culture" choice, it is a RIGHT. The police, all respect to them, do not "Protect" the citizen, they respond to criminal activity, arrest the perpetrator/s of a crime if and when they catch them, and hold them for prosecution. The only way they can "Protect" a citizen is if they arrive before a crime in progress is committed. A police presence is a deterrent only when the police are actually present. They were not when I backed down a burglar with my gun, and did not even get there until 30 minutes after I ran him off. They did not catch him, and I am quite sure he is still out there carrying on his life of crime.
