Hillary Clinton has charged right into the mouth of a proverbial cannon in her campaign to strip Americans of their liberty when it comes to guns. And now, leaked emails confirm that her handlers have deep concerns that her radical positions would hurt her in the southern states.
Clinton Camp Worried Gun Control Position Would Not Play Well in Southern States

A top Clinton campaign staffer worried her gun control stance would turn off voters in southern states, a hacked email released on Sunday shows.

Democrat Bill Clinton lost the U.S. House of Representatives to Republicans for the first time in generations back in 1994 because of gun control. He admitted that his gun control push — in the form of an “assault weapons” ban “devastated” Democrats at the polls.
Democrat Al Gore likely lost the 2000 presidential race because of his support of radical gun control. Even the hard-lefties at Salon acknowledge that fact. The inventor of the Internet couldn’t even carry his home state of Tennessee.
And sixteen years later, after devastating losses at the national and state levels since Obama took office, here comes Hillary Clinton making gun control a central platform of her campaign. And her advisors worry it will hurt her.
Who would have thought it?
