Hillary: National Rifle Association Reminds Me of the Iranians and Communists Click to Tweet

Hillary Clinton has been riding the wave of anti-gun feelings renewed by the Oregon shooting last week…

Clinton has been outlining her approach to gun ownership over the past few days, and accused firearm lobbyists of spreading “absolutist” propaganda that the government wants to take guns away from all citizens.

“The NRA tries to keep gun owners really upset all the time so they can keep collecting their money, because they tell them they’re the only thing that’s going to stop the black helicopters from landing in the front yard,” Clinton said. “I know why [President Obama] is discouraged, because it is discouraging to see the cynicism, the greed, behind this lobbying.”


She suggested that responsible gun owners ought to splinter from the NRA in order to create a new group that aims to balance ownership with legislation to prevent guns from being sold to problematic individuals…

“You know, the NRA’s position reminds me of negotiating with the Iranians or the communists. There’s no possible discussion,” Clinton said.
