Dems: Ready to Come After Guns

by Mike Lillis and Sarah Ferris | the Hill  |  published on July 27, 2016

PHILADELPHIA –– Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are taking their gun reform message full-bore into the general election, betting that a shift in voter sentiment has turned a once-toxic issue into a political winner.

Gun control has emerged as one of the most prominent pillars of Clinton’s 2016 platform, partly because she used it to draw a contrast with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), her former primary opponent, and his mixed voting record on the issue.

But many leading gun-control advocates, including Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), say Clinton has made it clear the issue will remain at the top of her agenda as she battles Donald Trump and the Republicans heading into November.

“There were a lot of cynics who said, ‘Hillary Clinton’s going to drop this issue once the primary was over.’ That this was just a means to create a wedge with Sen. Sanders,” said Murphy, who has become Congress’s best-known gun control advocate since the 2012 shooting in Newtown, Conn.

“They were wrong.”

    There are over 300 million guns in America today according to one report that I read. If only half of that number vote to keep their guns ( TRUMP ), Killery will lose by a landslide.

      Yea they think it’s a winner because all these people crying doe gun control over. Mass shootings. They don’t get these murderers killed people the worst possible way to break laws. Why would gun laws bother a killer. Really how much of an oxymoron is that?

      Nazi executioners followed orders. Jews followed gun control laws.

    A armed man is a citizen, a unarmed man is a slave: John Adams – This is the big push by the UN, (enemy) for world gun control ! All of Europe has fallen for it and now look at it, infested with well armed muslims, highest crime rates in history throughout the countries, and thanks to socialism and the unions they are all broke $$$! Control the guns, control the masses, = NWO, and why the big push here for our guns, the elite!!

      RS, et al,
      Human interaction falls into two categories without exception; reason or force. If there is no disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers, reason must be used to persuade. Banning ‘an equalizer’ of force would result in rule by the unreasonable; the thugs, the jihadis, or the tyrants. It would amount to ultimate in-civility. Equal force levels the field only in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger aggressor.

      Responsible armed citizens do not seek to limit interaction with reason, only interaction by force. That is why carrying a gun is a most civilized act in the interest of peace. Eighty-five million law-abiding Americans own more than 200 million guns. If they all were violent, everyone would know about it. Almost all the nutcase shooters have been liberals, democrats, and primitive muslam cavemen.

        You are a very wise man my friend, and I feel at one time or another we’ll be forced to protect our second Amendment Right, and maybe even our country!! God Bless America!!

        To hear liberals it’s like the old west and gun owners own the town and control the people with gun fighters. Now don’t that sound familiar? Chicago, Detroit, new York and St. Louis comes to mind. I think those cities are run by liberals and their all broke.

    It will cost her the election against Trump!

    This is so stupid it’s funny! But, it does prove, once again, just how completely stupid the dummycratic party really is. Guns ARE NOT the problem and they know it. People are the problem and that has always been true, but you can’t win an election going after people.
    Just as the dummycrats have always pushed socialism and racism, they love pushing the blame game as well. Of course, they never know where the blame should really be placed……inward would be a good place to start!

      Teaman, Please accept my offer to use this as you see fit…

      Making good people helpless, doesn’t make bad people harmless. We have all the gun control we need. What we need is stupidity control.

    As my President said “FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS”!

  • KKmoderate

    I see a great divide in the Democratic party, much more pronounced than the one in the Republican camp. In spite of his faults, that you can put forward without much argument from this writer, I think Trump seems to know his constituents and is pulling together an agenda that will put him into the White House.
    Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is battling factions within her own party and, I strongly believe, this gun grab she is using as a centerpiece for her platform is going to be her Waterloo!!! Yaay. Trump 2016!

  • Jerry

    I hope she does, many people will use it as a reason to get off the couch and go vote against the hildabitch, I’m pretty sure that will guarantee a trump win, this past year has set records for gun sales, it may set new voter records especially as the terrorist attacks on our turf is stepping up and as the black lives and the panthers are starting this war on cops and then with this president started war on cops and the blacks wonder why it may feel that the cops are protecting them selves and are quicker to shoot then befor the prez started this crap, cops have a right to protect themselves as does every American that so choses to own a gun, the second amendment was created so we had a resolve to a government turned tyrant which of course it has turned into

      This is why they want our guns. We can’t rise up against these tyrants so they think. If they keep pushing crap on us like this bathroom thing, when they should be talking about fixing the debt, they will see a country rise up against this crap.
