Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea isn’t a practiced politician. So this clip (not magazine) ends with some major league Sandy Hook-related anti-gun bloody shirt waving, rather than starting with it. But the younger Ms. Clinton certainly nails it in terms of revealing her Mom’s desire to appoint an anti-gun rights Supreme Court Justice. “It matters to me that my Mom recognizes the role of the Supreme Court when it comes to gun control,” Chelsea reveals, adding . . .
With Justice Scalia on the court one of the few areas where the court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control. Sometimes the Court upheld local and state gun control measures as being compliant with the Second Amendment, and sometimes the Court struck them down.
So if you listen to Moms Demand Action and the Brady Campaign, the major efforts pushing for smart, sensible and enforceable gun control across our country, in disclosure have endorsed my Mom, they believe the next time the Court rules on gun control it will make a definitive ruling.
So it matters to me that my Mom is the only person running for President who not only constantly makes that connection, but also has a strong record on gun control and standing up to the NRA.
Uh, gun rights advocates make that connection. And someone ought to tell Chelsea that the civilian industrial complex is using the term “gun reform” in place of “gun control.” Or not.
