Hillary Clinton Reinterprets Heller Case in Last Debate


During the last Presidential Debate of the 2016 Election season, Hillary Clinton was asked by moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News to explain her statement from a year ago that “The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment.” Specifically, Wallace asked her to explain her problem with the reasoning of landmark Heller decision.

Once again, the American public saw Mrs. Clinton’s general election strategy play out of providing lip service to the Second Amendment while soft peddling what are her true strong gun control sentiments. This time, she surprised observers by saying, “I disagreed with the way the court applied the Second Amendment in that case, because what the District of Columbia was trying to do was to protect toddlers from guns and so they wanted people with guns to safely store them.” An Associated Press Fact Check termed that claim a “misstatement.” Watch the #GUNVOTE video, and share it on Facebook and Twitter.
