Anti-Gun Group Joins Clinton’s “Ban Guns But Bail Out Criminals” Campaign

posted on March 22, 2016

The San Francisco-based Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence (LCPGV) is now joining forces with Hillary Clinton in her campaign of attacking police, seeking to reduce prison sentences, portraying criminals as victims and blaming the Second Amendment for crime. 

A new document from LCPGV lays out its agenda, which dovetails perfectly with Clinton’s as she calls for “transformational reform” of police departments, “reducing mandatory penalties” and a wide variety of new anti-gun laws that will disarm lawful people who need firearms more than ever to defend themselves against the criminals Clinton vows to shield from enforcement of the laws on the books. 

If this gives you déjà vu, it should. Because it’s just a rehash of a debate we saw decades ago, when years of liberal soft-on-crime policies drove violent crime to record heights. Tough laws and enforcement got us out of that mess—but now Clinton wants to go back.
