Trump, Clinton Talk Guns With NYT

posted on October 20, 2016

When The New York Times recently asked the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton campaigns, “What would your administration do to reduce gun violence and mass shootings?” the difference in answers further reinforces why gun owners must do all we can to avoid a Clinton presidency. 

Clinton reverted back to her stock proposals: Expand background checks (which won’t affect criminals), ban common and popular semi-automatic rifles (which are used in less than 3 percent of all murders), and enable lawsuits against legal gun manufacturers for their legally made and marketed products (which is both illegal and immoral). Talk about ineffective action!

Trump’s camp, on the other hand, answered in support of the right to keep and bear arms. “A Trump administration would target criminals who use guns, and get guns out of the hands of felons and gang members,” the campaign answered. “Hillary’s solution is to disarm law-abiding Americans, which leaves good people defenseless while criminals will continue to commit crimes against the innocent.”

From Editor: This Is Not A Culture War

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
