It would appear a large segment of the liberal Dem population is definitely “Ready for Hillary”… to take away your guns, America.
After focusing her campaign around the idea that the U.S. desperately needs more gun control in recent months leading up to and following Obama’s executive action announcement, famous pro-gun controllers with deep pockets are throwing money at Hillary to be the next commander-in-chief.
Major anti-gun endorsements are pouring in. Just a few days ago, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence announced it is backing Hillary. So are well-known gun control advocates Mark Kelly and his wife, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.
“Hillary Clinton has been a national leader on gun violence prevention for decades. More than any candidate on either side of the aisle, she has the experience, record, and demonstrated commitment to help reach the Brady Campaign’s goal of cutting gun deaths in half by 2025,” Brady Campaign President Dan Gross, who is set to appear with Clinton on Tuesday, said in a statement.
“She was with us when we passed the Brady Bill in 1993, she took on the corporate gun lobby by fighting the truly evil Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, and now she’s made gun violence prevention a centerpiece of her campaign, supporting a policy that’s already saved lives in Iowa — expanded Brady background checks on gun sales,” he said.
It’s already been pointed out that the gun violence figures Hillary has been floating in her campaign speeches of late about how many people are killed by guns are bloated and misleading, lumping suicides and accidents in with the numbers as if every single gun death is by interpersonal gun violence against an innocent person.
In other words, 11,713 gun-related deaths in 2013 represent about 32 deaths a day out of an American population of 318 million people. That is not enough to give gun control the traction it needs to get moving. Add in suicides, however, and that brings the figure to 32,888–and Clinton can lump all deaths together and claim “88 to 92 people are killed” as a result of “gun violence.”
Hillary has praised Obama’s use of executive gun control actions, and has vowed to pass her own executive actions for more gun control if she becomes president.
Gun control groups and advocates all across the country are throwing themselves at her at the hopes it will happen.
Obama cried when he announced his executive orders, then had a hard time answering a question from Kelly and Giffords a few nights later at his gun control town hall where he tried to claim there is no conspiracy to disarm Americans.
