Hillary Beats Bernie With Gun Control Stick

posted on January 12, 2016

In a strategy that might work great for the primaries but may not sit well with the general voting public, Hillary Clinton continues to lash out fellow Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders for being insufficiently extreme in his anti-gun stance. “I think he has been consistently refusing to say that he would vote to repeal this absolute immunity from any kind of responsibility or liability,” she said on “Face the Nation,” referring to her opponent’s vote for the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Acts (PLCAA), which does not bestow legal immunity on the gun industry but does prevent frivolous, politically motivated lawsuits. 

For his part, Sen. Sanders isn’t doing much to stand up to her attacks. Instead of defending his support of the PLCAA, he has been trying to bolster his anti-gun credentials and has even suggested that today he would vote against the same law. “I’ve cast over 10,000 votes in my life … I am absolutely willing to take another look at that legislation and get rid of the onerous provisions,” he lamely promised.
