Hillary Clinton Slammed For ‘Ignorant’ Statement On Guns After Las Vegas Shooting

13

Hillary Clinton took heat Monday for issuing what critics called an “ignorant” and “irrelevant” statement going after the NRA and silencers in the hours after the Las Vegas mass shooting.

As details were still emerging about the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took to Twitter to imagine how much deadlier the massacre might have been if silencers had been used.

“The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get,” she tweeted, adding: “Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.”

 

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, editor in chief of The Daily Wire, blasted Clinton’s tweets as “Ignorant, irrelevant and exploitative.” Read more at Fox News.

  1. Hillary can’t scream about making the automatic weapon illegal, because it already is. So she needs to get attention some other way.

  2. Hillary Clinton is unreliable hate. This was 3 days too early for the discussion.

    I am an American citizen and I completely now hate both candidates for the year we just elected.

    Kidding aside, I might wonder if Hashem ever moves myself and family to Israel. It might yet not have a Temple but I could wait there. The American feeling with either one in office and other scruffing her eternity are misery.

    We have few leaders to note today right. Ms. Pelosi is hope and maybe Jon Huntsman. We may lose McCain and even Joe Leiberman could do better.

    Sorry vast zero political landscape after 2016. We are the floor of the swamp.

    • Deb,
      A. Silencers don’t really work like in movies, where a regular gun shot magically turns whisper quiet. To achieve such an effect, you’ll need a specially designed gun and ammo. In real life, a silencer shot is still very loud and very noticeable, but it does shave off enough decibels to prevent a hearing damage, which is its primary purpose.
      B. Just because you make some object illegal, it doesn’t make it inaccessible to a person who has no qualms about breaking the law. Case in point: narcotics are illegal, yet widely traded and used. Terrorists and murderers don’t really care about the laws, otherwise they would not be terrorists and murderers.
      C. This mass murder was committed by a lefty looney from the Hillary-Burney camp, who was an anti Trump activist. He was not affiliated with NRA. His shooting would not have been any more effective if he used a silencer. NRA and silencers have no relationship to this event – Hillary is just using her signature manipulative demagoguery to cynically shift the blame from her crazy DemocRatic camp unto conservatives. Do you think it’s OK to manipulate and misrepresent?!

    • Also, its not just the NRA. Most if not all of America’s 80 million plus gun owners support SUPPRESSORS (they are not silencers) being legal. A suppressor would actually have hindered the shooter, as high rates of fire can cause them to melt, and make guns less accurate.

  3. I as a frum Orthodox Jew and gun owner can tell you silencers don’t work for machine guns or automatic weapons. Silencers are more for Mossad type assassinations with regulars standard weapons not automatic fire. There is no fool proof solution. Yes if you want to stop car accidents then ban all cars. Go back to using horses but then too people can get trampled by a horse.
