Hillary is pushing her anti-gun agenda hard this election season.
Hillary Clinton will be in Cincinnati on Monday night to push for Ohio residents to vote early. She will be joined by two leading gun-safety advocates—former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Navy combat veteran and retired astronaut Mark Kelly.
The appearance at the city’s Smale Riverfront Park is both a part of Clinton’s push to encourage Americans to vote early and a stop on Giffords’s “Vocal Majority” gun-safety tour. Her political action committee, Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), is nearing the conclusion of its six week, 14-state bus tour to demand an end to gun violence. The group, which endorsed Clinton in June, began the nationwide tour in Orlando, Florida, the site of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, on June 12. Giffords and Kelly, who publicly acknowledge they are gun owners, became supporters of stronger gun legislation after she was shot in the head five years ago during an event at a supermarket in Tucson, Arizona.
The tour, which lasts through Election Day, is part of ARS’s initiative to mobilize millions of voters to make the 2016 election a referendum on gun safety, and to support leaders down the ballot who are committed to taking steps to reduce gun violence.
