If you’re going to allow Hillary Clinton to become President, then you must start preparing for this. Are you going to let her grab your guns and violate your Second Amendment rights?
Hillary Clinton took her gun violence prevention message to Connecticut today, holding a panel with families who tragically lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook shooting at an event 50 miles upstate.
Clinton said it would take a ‘national movement’ to force Congress to change federal firearms laws, and that’s no easy task because of all ‘nobody is more powerful than the gun lobby.’
‘I am not here to make promises I can’t keep,’ she told attendees of the Hartford, Connecticut, event, attempting to slight Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, whom she’s been characterizing as as friend of the National Rifle Association.
She said, ‘I am here to tell you I will use every single minute of every day, if I am so fortunate to be your president, looking for ways that we can save lives, that we can change the gun culture.’
Clinton has sought throughout the Democratic presidential race to undercut Sanders by emphasizing her support for laws that would restrict gun ownership and his reticence to back legislation that would open up gun manufacturers to costly lawsuits.
Both candidates want to see background checks expanded to include purchases made online and at gun shows, and Sanders has said that weapons dealers should be held responsible for crimes committed with their product when the purchaser’s intent is clearly nefarious.
