Hillary Clinton was caught lying… again. Fact checkers were hard at work during the third and final presidential debate last night. The fruits of their diligent labor revealed a statistic she arrogantly touted was actually completely false.
The career politician was only about 15 minutes into the debate when she told two huge whoppers. First, 33,000 Americans do not die each year from gun violence, despite what Hillary thinks. The other lie? She claimed she actually supported the Second Amendment.
Clinton cites 33k a year homicide from guns. False. 3/4 suicide number #debatenight

Hillary lumped in the number of suicides with the number of Americans killed via gun violence. When a person decides to take his or her own life, it’s a tragedy, but don’t blame the gun or try to infringe upon our Second Amendment rights in an effort to thwart the desperate act of an, unfortunately, unstable individual.
A leaked audio recording from an October 2015 fundraiser revealed exactly how Hillary really feels about our Second Amendment rights. Chris Wallace referenced the comment during the debate last night and asked if she still stood behind it. As expected, Hillary tried to dodge and weave as much as possible before giving a vague answer and then pivoting to her false “33,000” death statistic.
“I do not believe the NRA represents most gun owners; they sure don’t represent the majority of Americans,” Hillary Clinton claimed, without basis, during the speech. The career politician went on to accuse the NRA of “intimidating” Congress and state elected officials into backing away from gun control bills.
Hillary, who claimed last night she merely stood for “common sense gun control,” told the crowd at her private and lucrative fundraiser that the NRA pushed lawmakers into “passing the most absurd laws” and cited concealed carry laws among the them.
It really should shock no one that Hillary Clinton thinks the right to self-defense is “absurd.” She has no point of reference that would allow her to relate to having concerns about personal safety—she has had a private security detail for the bulk of her adult life.
Clinton said the United States Supreme Court “got it wrong” when ruling to make the Heller case decision that upheld an individual’s right to bear arms. This woman would be appointing not one but up to three SCOTUS justices if elected.
“I think that for most of our history there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice [Antonin] Scalia. And there was no argument until then that localities, and states, and the federal government had a right—as we do with every amendment—to impose reasonable regulations,” Clinton said when lambasting the high court’s decision.
Let that fact sink in for a moment, folks. Just imagine how different America would be if Hillary wins and appoints three liberal SCOTUS justices, likely fulfilling her backroom promises to her mega donors like George Soros. She would definitely be an agent of “change” then, and the next two generations of Americans would be paying the price!
