It’s a sad day for America when most of the Democratic presidential candidates choose nearly 5 million law-abiding Americans as their public enemy number 1.
Yet that’s what happened at the first Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, with Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders all taking potshots at members of the National Rifle Association. Sanders bragged of having a D-minus rating from the NRA, prompting O’Malley to boast, “I have an ‘F’ from the NRA, senator.” For her part, Clinton chided, “This has gone on too long and it’s time the entire country stood up against the NRA.”
With such hatred toward their fellow citizens just because they treasure the Second Amendment, it’s unlikely any of the Democrat candidates could honestly repeat the “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution” part of the oath of office. Fortunately, gun owners are watching and will vote next November.
