While former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg pumps millions of dollars into efforts to curtail the right to keep and bear arms for law-abiding Americans, another former Big Apple mayor has taken the opposite side of the debate.
During a speech in Reno, Nev., on Saturday night, Rudy Giuliani touted Republican candidate Donald Trump’s support for the Second Amendment. “If you elect Donald Trump, you will preserve your Second Amendment right to bear arms,” Giuliani told the crowd gathered there. “If you elect Hillary Clinton, she will appoint one judge and then two, and they will take it away from you, and a lot of your other rights.”
As Breitbart recently pointed out, on May 5, Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin told Huffington Post that Clinton “believes Heller was wrongly decided in that cities and states should have the power to craft common-sense laws to keep their residents safe.”
Of course, we know how much sense those supposed “common-sense” laws would make—focusing on law-abiding gun owners while not affecting the use of firearms by violent criminals.
