Wikileaks: Clinton Planted Gun-Control Supporters, Planned Anti-Gun Remarks At Town Hall

posted on October 25, 2016

Correspondence uncovered as part of the Wikileaks Podesta email release shows the Clinton campaign embedded anti-gun activists and planned to push anti-gun talking points at a “town hall” event staged in New Hampshire last year, Breitbart reports.

In preparation for that event at Manchester Community College—just four days after a shooting at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College—the emails offered “talking points” about gun control but cautioned staffers not to tip their hand: “This is not a town hall exclusively about gun violence—it’s just a regular town hall.” Nonetheless, the emails noted, “the person who will introduce [Clinton] will tell a story about gun violence in her life, and there will be people in the audience from gun violence orgs.” 

The following week, at another New Hampshire college “town hall,” Clinton said the “Australian example”—where at least 640,000 pump shotguns and semi-automatic rifles were confiscated from lawful people and destroyed—would be “worth considering at the national level” in the United States.
