Chelsea Clinton said at a campaign stop in Maryland, that with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia gone, her mother believes they can enact sweeping gun control legislation and get it past the Supreme Court.
Clinton Looking For Massive Gun Control
Here is an excerpt of Chelsea’s speech:
“It matters to me that my mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the Court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control. Sometimes the Court upheld local and state gun control measures as being compliant with the Second Amendment and sometimes the Court struck them down.”
“So if you listen to Moms Demand Action and the Brady Campaign and the major efforts pushing for smart, sensible and enforceable gun control across our country, disclosure, have endorsed my mom, they say they believe the next time the Court rules on gun control, it will make a definitive ruling. So it matters to me that my mom is the only person running for president who not only constantly makes that connection but also has a strong record on gun control and standing up to the NRA.“
In their fits of pique the #NeverTrump Republicans imagine that Hillary would be better than Donald Trump. Think again. This is just a warm up. Consider Hillary’s conception of religious liberty and free speech to name just a few fundamental liberties a Clinton Administration would look to limit.
