NRA’s Cox Slams Hillary In CNN Op-Ed

posted on August 12, 2016

In an op-ed posted Wednesday at CNN.com, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox called out Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her hypocrisy concerning armed self-defense.

“She has never had to worry about being alone in her home in an emergency situation,” Cox wrote of Clinton. “Unlike most Americans, she does not have to think about dialing 911 if she hears the glass break downstairs at two o'clock in the morning. And she never has to wait the national average of 11 minutes from the time she calls for help to the time the police arrive.

“Despite that reality, she doesn't believe you and I have the individual right to keep firearms in our homes to protect ourselves and our families,” he continued. “So where does that leave us? It leaves us with Clinton's vision for America—one set of rules for her and a different set for the rest of us.”
