Hillary Clinton on San Bernardino shooting: 'I want people to feel safe' (by giving up their guns)
Hillary Clinton expressed sorrow Thursday over the “terrible” shooting attacks in San Bernardino and called for renewed international cooperation to combat extremism, though she cautioned that the motive behind the rampage was still unknown.
“I want people to feel safe. If you go to the store, or you go to work, you go to the movies, you go to church, you take your kid to school — you should be safe,” Clinton said after a campaign-trail tour of a pin factory in Nashua, N.H.
Acknowledging that President Obama has said terrorism could not be ruled out as a motive for the massacre that killed 14, Clinton reflected on the prowess that terrorist networks like Islamic State have demonstrated in spreading their views online.
“We have to fight them in the air, we have to fight the on the ground and we have to fight them in cyberspace,” she said. “They’re so good on the Internet. They’re good at recruiting; they’re good at propaganda. They are good at even inciting acts of violence.”
Clinton said it was critical to lead the world in working to prevent “the kind of attacks we’ve been seeing,” she told reporters, though it was not immediately clear whether she was referring still to the San Bernardino shooting.
