I don’t know what the Democrats are thinking actively campaigning on gun control in a nation where there are nearly as many guns as there are people.
They act like it’s only the NRA who supports gun rights in this country against the will of the people, but the NRA has a higher approval than both Obama and Hillary.
As Breitbart reported on December 19th Hillary stated that “Guns, in and of themselves…will not make Americans safer.” She then listed the number of gun-related deaths each year in a way that appeared to suggest guns actually make America less safe.
Realizing the hypocrisy of the statement, Trump pounced at the opportunity to issue a challenge to her:
If guns are good enough to protect our leaders why not citizens? Does anyone really believe that the government can be trusted with firearms but our citizens can’t? I barely even trust them to deliver my mail.[Note: This post was authored by The Analytical Economist]
