Hillary Clinton seals her fate by declaring her anti-gun intentions
Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton recently vowed to use executive action (i.e., presidential memorandums) to impose more gun control, if she is elected President of the United States.
Her stance today is quite different from the allegedly pro-gun stance that she adopted during her 2008 bid for the Presidency.
Apparently Clinton does not care if she alienates the roughly 100 million gun owners in the United States. And apparently she has forgotten what happened to the Democrat members of Congress who voted for the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 – they were voted out in a landslide, handing control of both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate to the Republicans in November 1994. This event was later dubbed “the Republican Revolution.” Even her own husband, ex-President Bill Clinton, warned Democrats as recently as 2013 that emphasizing gun control is an election-loser.
I’m glad Hillary Clinton is emphasizing gun control in her campaign. It will help ensure her defeat in 2016.
