Isn’t It Ironic: Obama & Clinton Donors Profit From Guns

posted on January 14, 2016

They’re notoriously outspoken on gun control. If they had their way, the Second Amendment would be stricken from the Constitution. Yet, ironically, some of their biggest political benefactors are firms with a financial stake in the sale of guns and ammunition. And while there has been a growing push among other political leaders for investors to divest from firearm firms, President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton are holding tight. 

International Business Times reveals that financial firms and hedge funds investing in U.S. firearm and ammunition companies have not just given big to Democrats, they’ve contributed mightily to the Obama and Clinton re-election campaigns as well: More than $15 million in all, plus another $4.1 million toward the Clinton Foundation.

But apparently neither the president nor the would-be president see any conflict of interest—they’ll continue to assault our gun rights while greasing their palms from the very industry they’re working to destroy.
