Chelsea Clinton admitted on the campaign trail that Antonin Scalia’s death leaves the Supreme Court with a possible opportunity to force through gun control.
(Nevermind the fact that the Supreme Court is supposed to be a non-partisan branch of government that preserves the Constitution… it’s all just details to the Democrats.)
Chelsea Clinton said Thursday at an event in Maryland that there is now an opportunity for gun control legislation to pass the Supreme Court since Justice Antonin Scalia passed away.
“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,” Clinton said. “Sometimes the Court upheld local and state gun control measures as being compliant with the Second Amendment and sometimes the Court struck them down.”
Clinton then touted her mother’s record on gun control issues and knowledge that the Supreme Court has an effect on whether many gun control laws stand.
With an open seat on the Supreme Court, the stakes for this presidential election are higher than ever. Let’s hope that Republicans can get it together and keep Hillary Clinton out of the Oval Office.
