Gun Control Gets Center Stage At Star-Studded Clinton Fundraiser

At a high-dollar concert fundraiser for the Hillary Victory Fund, Hillary Clinton’s super PAC, Grammy Award-winning musicians and Hollywood celebrities toasted the Democrat front-runner at Radio City Music Hall Wednesday night, with actress Julianne Moore, who introduced Clinton, praising her in particular for her gun-control advocacy. 

“I’m proud to support Hillary Clinton for president—someone ... who’s not afraid to stand up for the NRA and who will keep fighting for common-sense gun reform,” Moore pronounced. Besides Moore, notables attending the event—where ticket prices ranged from $125 to $2,700 and sponsors ponied up another $125,000—included Sir Elton John, Katy Perry, Jamie Foxx, Chelsea Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, who tried to make a joke of the grave implications of Hillary Clinton’s use of a non-secure email server to exchange sensitive, classified information. 

Presumably, armed security surrounding the event exceeded even that of the Oscars.
