Hillary Clinton has joined with Senators Chris Murphy (CT) and Tim Kaine (VA), as well as a host of other lawmakers, to help elect candidates who want to attack Second Amendment rights and impose gun control.
The two-time failed presidential contender will lend her support to “eight brave candidates for Congress” who will be “facing some of the gun lobby’s biggest defenders.”
The group they are supporting – dubbed “the NR8” – are in tight races against incumbents with ‘A’ ratings from the National Rifle Association, and running in districts Clinton won as a presidential candidate in 2016.
“Some of the most painful and rewarding conversations I have had on the campaign trail were with parents who had lost their children to gun violence,” Clinton tweeted. “They told me about their grief, and also about their anger and frustration toward a political system that couldn’t seem to take action to prevent other kids from dying from unnecessary gun violence,” she added, pretending she listened to their stories.
Chip in today to their campaigns, and your support will be split equally among them.
Let’s beat the NR8. https://t.co/0zNfNx7ibZ

To be fair, Hillary’s views on guns probably changed very dramatically after she was shot at by fictitious Bosnian snipers. And to be fair to the Democrats who recently went into conniption fits trying to block Brett Kavanaugh for a totally unproven sexual assault claim, they’ve probably already forgotten about Christine Blasey Ford and their own “believe women” rhetoric, in their decision to team up with Bill Clinton’s enabler and attack dog.
Clinton hasn’t stopped sniping at the big bad “gun lobby” since her defeat. She told “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon after the election that, “The vast majority of Americans and the vast majority of gun owners know we need common sense laws.”
President Trump cautioned Americans that Clinton would do her best to destroy the Second Amendment and vowed to place justices on the Supreme Court who would fight to defend it.
“I am looking to appoint judges very much in the mold of Justice Scalia … People that will respect the Constitution of the United States,” Trump said during one of the presidential debates.
“And I think that this is so important–also, the Second Amendment, which is totally under siege by people like Hillary Clinton,” he warned.

Chris Murphy, who is the leader of this ‘NR8’ movement, has been willing to exploit terrorist attacks in his attempts to implement gun control measures. He also participated in a despicable display in which Democrats heckled Republican calls for a moment of silence for victims of the Orlando attack.
Is this the kind of people you want in Congress come November? Unhinged, anti-Constitutionalists who perpetually attack the Second Amendment?
