“We cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people”

Think about these words, and how scary they are. We cannot let people hold a viewpoint - that's thought police. It's not "we cannot let people do such-and-such" - they should not be allowed to think such-and-such.

If I were a minority I'd be scared out of my wits living in a country where a leader said that. Perhaps Perhaps I'm an African American, and people are being terrorized by the violence in Baltimore and Ferguson. Or perhaps I'm a Muslim the US, where one could arguably say that Islam terrorizes the majority (as on 9-11).

What is being proposed for the people who are not allowed to hold such a viewpoint? Should they be deported? Locked up? Sent to "reeducation camps?"

Consider those word, and then consider who said this, any about whom. Was it Putin, speaking about Chechens? Hitler speaking about Jews? Was it a quote by Big Brother, from Orwell's 1984?

No, it was Hillary Clinton, and she was speaking about people who hold a viewpoint that is in the Constitution, and which has been confirmed time and time again by the Supreme Court - namely that the right to keep and bear arms is a right of the people of the United States.

For extra credit, it's not just the second amendment she wishes to abolish, but also the first, when she said:
“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed"

I don't know about you, but her viewpoint terrorizes me.
