Sen. Markey Brags That Hillary Will Finish Off The NRA

posted on March 2, 2016

While introducing Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton to a rally crowd on the eve of Super Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., said something that will likely challenge America’s law-abiding gun owners to work harder than ever to defeat her. 

“When guns are on the streets of this country killing our young people, we have more work to do,” said Markey, who, like Clinton, never mentions the violent criminals who actually commit murders. “Hillary Clinton will make sure the NRA stands for ‘not relevant anymore.’”

While Markey’s proclamation was a cute play on words and was probably well received by voters who would like nothing more than to see the Second Amendment relegated to the dust heap of history, those who appreciate our right to keep and bear arms should let such attacks on America’s oldest civil rights organization inspire them to work harder than ever before to elect a pro-gun president this November.
