Hillary Challenges NRA In North Carolina

posted on March 12, 2016

The Wall Street Journal has reported that, at a campaign stop in North Carolina, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton once again made it clear who she thinks is America’s biggest problem—the 5 million members of the National Rifle Association. 

“I will take on the gun lobby,” Clinton promised attendees gathered in the Durham Hillside High School gym. She listed Wall Street and pharmaceutical companies among the special interests she would take on if elected, but saved a special place for the NRA: “But you know what the strongest lobby is? It’s the gun lobby, which intimidates people, threatens elected officials.”

Contrary to her 2008 campaign, Clinton is demonizing gun-rights supporters this time. When asked in an October 2015 CNN debate which of her enemies she was most proud of, she named NRA first, along with “Iranians.” In last week’s debate, she said, “We talk about corporate greed; the gun manufacturers sell guns to make as much money as they can make!”
