Hillary Clinton immediately took the low road and attacked law abiding gun owners.
Via World News Daily:
Graham, the CEO and president of both Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Association, wrote: “What’s the difference between Hillary Clinton & Donald J. Trump as president? Well, there are many. But it is impossible not to notice the difference in response to the crisis of the Las Vegas shooting massacre yesterday. Hillary immediately – and ineffectively – tried to make it about gun control, her agenda. President Trump brought comfort from God’s Word and pointed America to the importance of prayer. I’m thankful millions noticed the difference.”The Firearms Policy Coalition also noticed the distinction:
Opportunistic politicians who prey on tragedies like this one have already begun to suggest that our response should be to abandon our constitutional principles in favor of policies that would ban more guns, disarm more victims, and further expand ‘gun free zones’ – spaces shielded by nothing more than invisible lines and wishful thinking,” the group said. “Such policies are not only irrational, but outright dangerous. As every attack in what was purported to be a ‘gun-free’, ‘bomb-free’, or ‘vehicle-free’ zone proves, there is no set of laws that will prevent evil people from monstrously plotting an effective means to harm others.”
The group recalled the description years ago by Alex Kozinski, then chief justice of the 9th Circuit Court, who said the “prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do.”
“But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees,” the judge said. “However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.”
