We all know that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wants to infringe on Americans’ natural, civil and constitutional right to keep and bear arms. And how. But this is not the time for Ms. Clinton to come right out and say it, politically speaking. At this point in her campaign, with questions about her Foundation and Benghazi and emails and such dogging her, Hillary has adopted a blanket policy on talking about any policy: don’t do it. So when the Charleston spree killer hit the news, Ms. Clinton felt obliged to say . . . nothing. But Hillary’s nothing is still something . . .
“How many innocent people in our country from little children to church members to movie theater attendees? How many people do we need to see cut down before we act?,” Clinton asked a crowd of Latino political leaders in Las Vegas. “As we mourn and as our hearts break a little more, and as we send this message of solidarity, we will not forsake those who have been victimized by gun violence.”
That pre- and post-Obama gun sales surge and ammo drought? It’s only a matter of time . . .
