Trying To Outdo Hillary, Bernie Sanders Brags About D- Rating, Desire To Ban Assault Weapons

posted on April 9, 2016

Bernie Sanders, in a desperate bid to one-up Hillary Clinton, has now taken to bragging about his D- rating from the NRA. On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday, Mike Barnicle asked the presidential candidate, “What other industry from this country receives immunity from litigation?” His question was erroneous, of course, as the gun industry isn’t treated differently than any other type of business. NRA-ILA’s Chris W. Cox wrote about that in our latest issue. 

Before answering the question, Sanders took a moment to vent. Lamenting that “the Clinton campaign has been on this gun business” from day one, Sanders wanted to make sure America knew how proud he too was of his NRA rating (from 2012) and reminded viewers that he’s been on the “assault weapons” ban bandwagon since 1988.

Be careful, Bernie—latching onto anti-gun coattails is a proven recipe for disaster. Former President Bill Clinton can attest to that.
