Clinton Campaign Tries To Hide Anti-Gun Stance From Middle America

The Hillary Clinton campaign is evidently trying to play both sides of the fence on gun control yet again, running hundreds of ads touting her extreme anti-gun positions in the Northeast while sponsoring almost none in the Midwest.

An analysis by the Associated Press found that over the past month, the Clinton camp ran 740 ads—about one out of every four—highlighting Clinton’s anti-gun agenda in New Hampshire, yet in Iowa, only one out of 17 ads addressed her support for more anti-gun laws.

Maybe that’s because the Clinton camp knows the percentage of residents who hunt with firearms in Iowa is almost double that in New Hampshire. Or maybe it’s because Hillary wants to hide her extreme gun-ban agenda from mainstream voters—whose duly-elected representatives she has vowed to overrule if they don’t pass the gun bans Hillary demands.
