Hillary Clinton made a ridiculous comment on gun control during a recent town hall meeting, comparing the National Rifle Association (NRA) to Iran. That’s right- comparing Iran to a Second Amendment group, rather than the individuals who are actually committing the mass casualty crimes.
The NRA is used to being on the receiving end of progressive character attacks- it comes with the territory of defending our constitutional rights.
During a town hall meeting at Cornell College in Iowa on Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton compared the National Rifle Association to Iranians and communists.
“You know, the NRA’s position reminds me of negotiating with the Iranians or the Communists,” she said. “You know, there’s no possible discussion and it’s for political purposes. You know, this is the way this works and it’s pretty cynical: the NRA tries to keep gun owners, the ones who are members, really upset all the time so they can keep collecting their money because they tell them they’re the only thing that’s going to stop the black helicopters from landing on the front yard and people’s guns being seized.”
“I mean, that’s basically the argument they make.”
Rather than sucker punching the NRA, I would love to hear one progressive articulate just once what law they would pass that could actually stop mass shootings. What law do they believe mentally disturbed criminals would actually follow? The reality is, criminals don’t follow laws. That’s part of the whole criminal “thing.”
