Palmieri: Hillary Referring To Countries That Have ‘Done Something’ About Guns With Australia Reference

Clinton campaign Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri stated that while Clinton agrees with gun buy-backs she was “referring to” “places where there have been mass shootings, and the countries have done something to act on it” when she referenced Australia’s gun laws on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”

Palmieri was asked about whether Clinton was “suggesting, in her town hall meetings in New Hampshire on Friday, when she said she would look into the Australian system, was she suggesting confiscation of guns?”

Palmieri answered, “Of course not, she was — what she was referring to is, places where there have been mass shootings, and the countries have done something to act on it. And she’s put forward a very common-sense proposal that would have background checks for everyone, that would remove the special protections the gun industry has from liability, but it’s all very common-sense measures that the majority of the public supports.”

When asked, “Does she like the idea of buy-backs?” Palmieri responded, “Yes. A number of cities do do that, and they’ve — it’s been effective.”
