Hillary Clinton to blast Donald Trump's gun proposals at Florida gathering

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is primed to attack Donald Trump's proposals on firearms as dangerous ideas for America's children just one day after the GOP's presumptive presidential nominee addressed the National Rifle Association's convention and earned the group's endorsement.

Clinton, who has positioned herself as a staunch advocate on gun control, will serve as a keynote speaker Saturday night at the third annual "Circle of Mothers" conference in Fort Lauderdale, hosted by the Trayvon Martin Foundation. Past attendees have included family members of victims from the Sandy Hook Elementary School and Aurora movie theater massacres, along with the close relatives of police shooting victims Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice.

A Clinton aide tells CBS News that at the gathering, which aims to empower mothers who have lost children to gun violence, the candidate will slam Trump's divisive rhetoric and contrast it to her own unifying message on justice and equality.

Clinton will emphasize how Trump's ideas to rid the country of gun-free zones, especially in America's schools, will make children less safe. She is set to focus on her own opposition to the NRA, the pro-gun lobby that gave their support to Trump Friday, and how she will not be silenced by the group.

Clinton's address comes just one day after the Republican nominee sharply criticized her policies at the NRA convention, claiming that Clinton would "abolish" the Second Amendment.

"Crooked Hillary Clinton is the most anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment candidate ever to run for office," Trump told an audience of NRA members Friday.

I would think Swillery has a gun within 10 feet of her at all times. She probably has one in some body cavity as well. The Clinton's would not leave the house without security paid with tax dollars. That includes that butt-ugly offspring as well.

She's actually going after the thug vote by doing this. You know, the thugs who steal the guns, grind off serial numbers, and illegally carry them while committing their crimes to protect themselves from the law abiding citizens they are robbing and killing.

You go, girl! May you die by the illegal gun and your soul burn for eternity.
