Clinton Calls For Supreme Court Judge Who Supports Gun Control

posted on October 11, 2016

Sunday night, one debate question to the presidential candidates was as direct as it was telling: “What would you prioritize as the most important aspect of selecting a Supreme Court justice?”

Hillary Clinton’s answer took direct aim at the Second Amendment, calling for a Supreme Court nominee who would push stricter gun laws. “I respect the Second Amendment, but I believe that there should be comprehensive background checks,” said Clinton, adding that “we should close the gun show loophole and close the online loophole; we have to save as many lives as we possibly can.” She went on to say the court has “gone in the wrong direction.” 

In the first debate, Clinton claimed race relations could be healed with stricter gun control measures: “We’ve got to get guns out of the hands of people who should not have them.” She followed that with an AARP interview last week, during which she compared American gun violence to “terrorism.”
