Hillary’s Latest Constitutional Gaffe

When Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton once again took an interview opportunity to bash the Second Amendment on Wednesday, she further showed her lack of knowledge about the Constitution.

As pointed out on TheBlaze.com, Clinton said on the "Steve Harvey Show": “So we have to say to the gun lobby, ‘You know what, there is a constitutional right for people to own guns, but there is also a constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that enables us to have a safe country to protect our children from their senseless gun violence.’”

As most A1F Daily readers already know, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is, in fact, not a constitutional right, but a phrase from the Declaration of Independence. “Heckuva gaffe to have in the middle of an intensifying debate over the Supreme Court,” Republican National Committee spokesman James Hewitt said in a statement.
