In case anybody needed a reminder of what the stakes were in this election, Chelsea Clinton offered a sobering glimpse into what a Hillary presidency would look like.
The Republicans are taking heat for their unwillingness to vote on or confirm nominees for the spot vacated by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. However, Republicans claim that they intend to hold on until the next president is sworn in and while Democrats are calling foul, Republicans have been quick to note that they were guilty of the same supposed “obstruction” during George W. Bush’s presidency and the Reagan presidency.
However, who the next Supreme Court justice will be will depend on the next president. If it’s Hillary Clinton, we can surely expect a radical opponent of the Second Amendment.
At an event in Maryland on Thursday, Hillary’s gaffe-tastic daughter noted that with Scalia out of the picture, the Court can finally get on with the business of squashing the Second Amendment rights of citizens.
“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,” Chelsea 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.”
As if her shameless “blame the NRA” mantra wasn’t pathetic enough, Chelsea turned to the standard method to invoke feelings over thought and talked about Sandy Hook.
“This is one of those issues I didn’t know I could care more about until I became a mother. And I think every day about the Sandy Hook families whose children every day, don’t come home from school. And I can’t even imagine that living horror and tragedy.”
We can longer pretend that we don’t know what a Hillary presidency would look like. Aside from rampant corruption infesting the highest levels of government, we can expect to see a radical agenda being furthered by a despicable unindicted felon who will use the executive branch as a cudgel to influence other branches.
We will lose out Second Amendment rights. Plain and simple. We’ve been warned. Let’s act accordingly…
