Hillary: ‘There’s a constitutional right to life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness'

Apr 2011
Under your skin
The often confused Hillary Clinton sat down with Steve Harvey yesterday to talk guns. It’s about what you’d expect with her usual spin on “common sense gun measures,” but check out what she says at the 2:12 mark:
“We’ve got to say to the gun lobby, you know what, there is a constitutional right for people to own guns. But there’s also a constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that enables us to have a safe country. where we are able to protect our children and others from this senseless gun violence.”
Nice speech Hillary, but “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is — of course — in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.
