Hillary Goes Gunning for the NRA

Hillary Goes Gunning for the NRA

I don't know why bad things happen to good people, but they do in this world, and what happened in Las Vegas was awful.

The NRA was silent for days after the 2012 Sandy Hook shootings in which Adam Lanza killed 20 school children and six adults with a semiautomatic rifle. "In the confines of the members-only elevators, where my colleagues could speak honestly, I heard colleagues confide that any vote for gun safety would lower their NRA scores, making them casualties in the next election".

As the NRA's revenues have soared and its donations to Congress have ramped up, mass shootings have become increasingly deadly.

"Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity", Sen.

While investigators are still determining the specifics of how Paddock obtained his weapons, gun control advocates say it's time to talk about legislation that could prevent the next mass shooting. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) identified the attacker as 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock. While Mr Trump promoted himself as a staunch defender of gun rights, Ms Clinton said she felt sensible regulations on who was able to buy weapons and the need for background checks, did not break with the idea of the Second Amendment. Shannon Watts, founder of the gun control advocacy group, Moms Demand Action, said that, as a result, the NRA will have to amend its tactics.

President Trump's statements indicate that he and his administration may be willing to work across the aisle on the issue of gun reform and this is a good start.

"It will be interesting to see how the NRA responds to this", she tells Newsweek. Crooked Hillary Clinton is the most anti-gun candidate ever to run for office. Laws on the books are more than adequate, except that they are not enforced. You can pass all the laws the Democrats want any insane people will still kill other people.

"In Las Vegas, reports indicate that certain devices were used to modify the firearms involved".

The world's largest annual gun show will go on as planned in Las Vegas.
