Yeah, I know, you’re shocked:

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared at a town hall forum on CNN today where she expressed support for a ban on assault weapons.

Clinton was asked by a teacher if she thought reinstating a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines “would do any good.”

“Yes, I do,” replied Clinton (video below). “We make hard choices and we balance competing values all the time.”

The previous AWB didn’t have any effect, and since its expiration in 2004, gun crime has continued to drop.
