Why the NRA and I don’t trust Hillary Clinton!
During Wednesday night’s presidential debate, Hillary Clinton defended her disagreement with the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision on gun rights by saying it was about keeping toddlers from gaining access to firearms.
She said, “What the District of Columbia was trying to do was to protect toddlers from guns,” about the decision in District of Columbia v. Heller.
Lie! The landmark case is more known for striking down the District’s near-total ban on handgun ownership and for establishing for the first time that the Second Amendment does guarantee a right to keep a gun in the home for self-defense!
Two things upset me about this. One, people will believe what she said, and think, “well that’s reasonable.” But the fact is she wants all gun ownership banned in this country and she is willing to lie and obfuscate the facts to achieve her goal.
The second thing that upsets me about this is, her opponent, Donald Trump let it slide, presumably because he had no knowledge of the decision and could not rebut her.
Outrageous for the candidate who has the highest endorsement from the NRA!
