Hillary Clinton went out of her way to remind gun owners why they should do everything in their power to keep her out of the White House.
In an email sent out by her campaign on Sunday, Clinton touted her plans to fight for gun control and “take on the NRA”. Reminding voters of her vocal criticism of the gun rights organization on the campaign trail as well as her support for the 1993 Brady Bill, she promoted herself as the “champion” that liberal Democrats need to push gun control through and implored them to rally behind her.
Of course, attacking the NRA wasn’t enough for Hillary: she also slammed the Republican-led Congress for not passing expanded background checks and other anti-gun pieces of legislation in the email. All in all, the email serves as a reminder to conservatives why they need to keep her from becoming president.
As if Hillary’s position on guns wasn’t bad enough, all of the other Democratic candidates have expressed similar views to her on the gun issue. Exploiting the heightened emotions brought out by mass shootings like the one in San Bernardino, Clinton and her competitors have cynically cast themselves as saviors presenting “common sense” solutions to a problem that affects our children. Per The Daily Caller:
“The gun control issue has risen to the surface of the presidential race after a series of mass shootings, most recently the Wednesday shooting in San Bernardino, California that killed and wounded dozens. Democratic presidential candidates Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley all tweeted some sort of call for increased gun control immediately following the shooting, while Republican candidates mostly tweeted prayers and words of support for the victims and their families.
The email begs America to think of the children.
‘We need to take action now,’ Clinton is quoted in the email. ‘No parent should have to worry about sending their kids to school, or going to a movie theater, or even going to church. No one should have that basic sense of safety and security ripped away from them.’”
