Wikileaks: PR Firm Seeks Clarification on Hillary's Support of 25% Gun Tax

One of the emails contained in the October 7 Wikileaks email release shows Grunwald Communications asking Hillary Clinton’s press secretary about the candidate’s support for “a 25 percent tax on gun sales.”

The email is dated October 4, 2015 and was sent from Mandy Grunwald to Brian Fallon. In it, Grunwald asked about Clinton’s reported vacillation on gun control in the 2008 campaign and also about the tax. She said, “I also saw something about her supporting a 25% tax on gun sales back in 1993.”

ABC News reports that Clinton was “unequivocal” in her support for such a tax during her husband’s presidency. On June 5, 2016, she told George Stephanopoulos her support for the tax was part of the nationalized healthcare push. She said, “What I was saying back then was that we have a lot of public health costs that taxpayers end up paying for through Medicaid, Medicare, through uncompensated care, because that was in the context of the push for health care reform and that we needed some way to try to defray those costs.”

If she's elected there won't be tax needed because they will take your guns.

Sounds like she is running for Governor of Maryland. Look at the jobs and revenue lost with Maryland's gun laws. Did it reduce gun crime in Baltimore?

So she was going to bilk Medicare and Medicaid to defray gun sales? What a crook. This scumbag has completely gone insane. Worms in her brain????
