Chelsea Clinton: My Mom Will Use The Supreme Court To Stand Up To NRA

posted on April 23, 2016

At an event in Maryland on Thursday, Chelsea Clinton said Justice Scalia’s death could lead to more pro-gun-control rulings in the Supreme Court—especially if Hillary Clinton wins this November’s election. “… [M]y mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench … sometimes the Court upheld local and state gun-control measures as being compliant with the Second Amendment and sometimes the Court struck them down,” Chelsea Clinton said.

Saying that Brady and Bloomberg’s Moms—both Hillary endorsers—believe the next ruling on gun control will be definitive, Chelsea continued: “My mom is the only person running for president who not only constantly makes that connection but also has a strong record on gun control and standing up to the NRA.”

In other words, the nomination of virulently anti-gun justices won’t just be a possibility under a Hillary presidency—it’s actually part of the game plan.
