Because that’s totally gonna fix things…
The batch of emails released by Wikileaks on October 7 includes one in which Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon explained that Clinton “would support…closing the gun show loophole by executive order.”
Fallon also highlighted Clinton’s support of universal background checks–which have already failed in California, Colorado, Washington state, and Paris–and her support for a scenario wherein victims of crime would be able to sue gun manufacturers.
In the email, dated October 4, 2015, Fallon mentions that Today had made clear they were going to ask Clinton about guns. At that time she was still locked in a tougher stance than expected primary opponent Bernie Sanders. Fallon wrote:
“Circling back around on guns as a follow up to the Friday morning discussion: the Today show has indicated they definitely plan to ask bout guns, and so to have the discussion be more of a news event than her previous times discussing guns, we are going to background reporters tonight on a few of the specific proposals she would support as President – universal background checks of course, but also closing the gun show loophole by executive order and imposing manufacturer liability.”
So let me get this straight, Killary… the gun show loophole wouldn’t have stopped a single mass shooting from happening, but that’s your plan on ‘common sense gun control.’ There isn’t a damn thing you can do to stop individual sales. They will always occur regardless of what the law says.
If we’re going to start suing gun manufacturers for what people do with their weapons, it’s only logical that we start suing car manufacturers when someone drinks and drives then kills someone on the highway.
Drunk drivers don’t kill people. Cars do!
