Clintons Say it Openly: Hillary Will Use the Supreme Court to Bring Gun Control to America

The truth always comes out. Sometimes it comes out quickly, sometimes it takes a little longer.

And Chelsea Clinton is now publicly saying what many American gun owners have long known / feared – that Hillary Clinton’s goal is to use the Supreme Court to bring stringent gun control to America.

“It matters to me that my mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the Court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control,” Clinton said. “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 and the major efforts pushing for smart, sensible and enforceable gun control across our country, disclosure, have endorsed my mom, they say they believe the next time the Court rules on gun control, it will make a definitive ruling,” Clinton said. “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.”

It’s not uncommon for people giving speeches for a campaign to be somewhat hyperbolic about their candidate. Yet while Chelsea was giving her speech on the subject yesterday, Hillary was also giving one of her own, where she said:

“I am here to tell you I will use every single minute of every day … looking for ways we can save lives, that we can change the gun culture. It is just too easy for people to reach for a gun to settle their problems. It makes no sense.”
