Before gun owners simply fill out their 2016 ballots, they should take the opportunity to fully research all potential presidential candidates over the next year.
Last month, Hillary Rodham Clinton, following in the footsteps of her husband, former President Bill Clinton, took aim at tighter gun control. Bill Clinton was largely responsible for the Brady Bill, which he believed would eliminate all gun violence.
Typical of most Democrats, Hillary Rodham Clinton is not only beginning to initiate a debate about the importance of further gun control, but is also claiming she will fight the National Rifle Association (NRA). She claims, “I’m going to speak out against the uncontrollable use of guns in our country because I believe we can do better.”
Just days before she made the previous comment, she stated: “We have to take on the gun lobby ... This is a controversial issue. I am well are of that. But I think it is the height of irresponsibility not to talk about it.”
A sure winner for the Democratic nod, Clinton’s comments have outraged politically active gun owners. The former Clinton Administration tried to ban assault weapons in 1995 and as a result, many Democratic lawmakers lost their re-elections after gun-control votes.
As more Republican presidential candidates announce their bids to run in 2016, they are adamantly speaking out against gun control, promoting more lax laws that will help retain the essence and purity of the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights.
While some people are saying, Hillary Rodham Clinton does not stand a chance in pressing for more gun control, the reality is that “[t]he Clintons pulled off the almost-impossible by giving us the background-check system and banning assault weapons.”
Many Democratic strategists believe that campaigning against guns is a smart political move for Hillary Clinton, which will gain her the Democratic nominee in the general election.
Just days after June’s church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, Hillary Rodham Clinton started talking about gun control, but she has made no detailed effort to unveil her specific plans. Using the suburban mother role, Hillary Rodham Clinton stands to have a powerful female and minority backing, which will give Republicans a run for their money in this presidential race.
In previous elections, politicians stayed silent on gun control issues. This is the first presidential election where gun control has become a main topic. The next year should be an interesting mix of statements and debates.
