Left-Wing Media Scramble To Cover For Hillary’s Gun Grab

posted on May 17, 2016

When Donald Trump recently said on the campaign trail that Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment and take away your guns, FactCheck.org and PolitiFact bent over backwards to claim he was wrong.

But as NRA-ILA pointed out in a recent feature, Trump was actually telling the truth. On Sept. 24, 2015, Clinton said, “[t]he Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.” What did the court rule? That the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms.

As for wanting to take guns, both of the alleged “fact checkers” try to minimize Clinton’s support for just that. On Oct. 16, 2015, Clinton was asked by an audience member in New Hampshire, “Recently, Australia managed to get away, take away, tens of thousands, millions, of handguns … Can we do that, and why if we can’t, why can’t we?” Her reply: “I do not know enough detail to tell you how we would do it, or how would it work, but certainly the Australian example is worth looking at.”
