It is clear now, more than ever, that a top priority of Hillary Clinton’s presidency would be an all out assault on your gun rights and the NRA. She is quoted saying:
“I really support everything President Obama said he would do through regulation on guns but we’re going to start the very first day and tackle the gun lobby to try to reduce the outrageous number of people who are dying from gun violence in our country.”
The gun lobby is not increasing the number of people who are dying from gun violence in our country. As a matter of fact, gun lobbying organizations, such as the NRA, provide training to gun-owning Americans that promotes the moral obligation of every citizen to abide by gun safety and legal regulations.
We know that criminals have zero concern for gun laws or the politics behind their application. They do, however, know how to get guns illegally. No amount of gun regulations will stop those who aim to harm from illegally acquiring firearms. If we really want to make a difference, we should look for ways to better reduce crime and increase opportunity in our communities.
