The NRA’s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has released a damning new ad featuring rape survivor Kimberly Corbin* blasting Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s extreme views on the Second Amendment.
Democrats do not recognize the Second Amendment as a right and have written it out of their 2016 platform, and a DNC delegate recently admitted that the “gun safety” rhetoric is merely a smokescreen for the Democrat Party’s true goal of banning all guns.
NRA spokesperson Jennifer Baker notes, “The Second Amendment is on the ballot this November and the individual right to own a firearm of your choosing for self-protection is at stake. Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted to keep us safe. If elected, she will pursue an extreme gun control agenda that will look to gun bans and confiscation like the program implemented in Australia.”
The NRA is committed to setting the record straight on Clinton, and her comments speak for themselves. Clinton was caught, and recorded, at a closed-door event late last year saying, “The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment, and I am going to make that case every chance I get.”
Clinton was referring to the landmark case District of Columbia v. Heller, in which the court ruled Americans have an individual right to keep guns in their homes for self-protection — a core tenant of the Second Amendment. If Clinton thinks the Supreme Court is wrong, then she thinks gun ownership is not an individual right.
Also late last year, Clinton said expressly at a Town Hall that an Australian-style gun ban and confiscation was “worth looking at” in America. Australian-style gun ban and confiscation is just as it sounds – near total confiscation of individual firearms.
“The next president will likely nominate several Supreme Court judges,” Baker said. “If Clinton is elected, she will surely nominate judges hostile to the Second Amendment. This election is not about the next four years when it comes to gun rights – it’s about the next 40 years.”
The pronounced leftward shift of the Democrat Party has hollowed out what it once was, and has caused it to become an echo of the worst political ideas of the 1960s. Under Hillary Clinton, the Democrat Party has become a haven for racist radicals, criminals, and communists who hate everything about the United States. It is not an exaggeration to note that a Clinton Presidency is a threat to the Constitution itself, and if she is elected and attacks the Constitution as she has promised, there is a distinct possibility that she and her radical allies on the left wing of the Democrat Party could trigger a civil conflict.
