Anti-Gun Senator Makes The Case For Supporting Trump

In explaining why gun-ban advocates should vote for Hillary Clinton this fall, a Democratic U.S. senator actually made the perfect case for why gun owners and other freedom lovers should vote for Donald Trump.

Speaking of Clinton’s push for more restrictive gun-control laws, U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said: “If Donald Trump wins, it will be a pretty dramatic setback. Not just because how terrible he’ll be on the issue, but the fact that a presidential candidate who ran asking for a mandate on guns lost.”

However, Murphy seems to be hedging his bet, adding: “I’m not sure that our movement is ready yet to beat the gun lobby.”

It’s the job of all gun owners to make sure that, once the votes are counted this November, Murphy and those like him learn just how weak they truly are when compared to Americans who vote freedom first.
