Former NRA Head Says Clinton Wrong On Guns

A former NRA president says that Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton “always gets it wrong” on the gun issue.

David Keene told Fox Business Network that Clinton’s view on suing gun makers for criminal misuse of their products is just one unreasonable stance. “If it’s a legal product, a firearm is, and it’s produced meeting quality standards and someone misuses it, that’s very different, and Mrs. Clinton doesn’t seem to be able to grasp that difference,” he said.

Keene also said that by targeting legal gun owners, Clinton is picking a fight she might later regret politically. “She’s setting herself up for a very tough race in the fall because there are a lot of millions upon millions of Americans, not all Republicans, not all Conservatives, many Independents, many Democrats, who take the Second Amendment seriously and take candidates who seriously threaten their rights under the Second Amendment as somebody that should not be elected to public office,” he said.
