Hillary Clinton has declared gun culture in the US is “way out of balance” and the country needs to rein in the notion that “anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime”.

The former secretary of state and potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said the idea that anyone could have a gun was not in the “best interest of the vast majority of people”, while arguing that view did not conflict with the rights of people to own firearms.

Clinton was speaking at the National Council for Behavioural Health conference in Oxon Hill, Maryland, pointing to recent shootings that involved teens who had been playing loud music and chewing gum, and a separate incident involving the typing of text messages in a movie theatre.

“I think again we’re way out of balance. I think that we’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime,” Clinton said. “And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people. And I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns.”

The Democrat-controlled Senate voted against legislation pushed by President Barack Obama in 2013 that would have expanded background checks for firearm purchases to gun shows and online sales. The legislation came in the aftermath of the deadly Sandy Hook elementary school shootings in Connecticut.
