According to The Truth About Guns, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said the following to troops stationed in Italy.

“I’ve been duck hunting since I was 10-years-old. I love to hunt and I love to be able to share that joy with my kids. But for the life of me, I don’t know why the hell people have to have an assault weapon.”

I don’t remember seeing anything about duck hunting in the Bill of Rights. Maybe I need to reread that part.

It is no surprise that the former Clinton Chief of Staff is anti-gun. What is more concerning is that one of the top ranking officials in the Department of Defense is apparently trying to turn US servicemen and women against the Second Amendment.
