While speaking to a group of activists in San Francisco, Hillary Clinton stressed that gun control is a “political necessity” and part of “taking back” the country.
Clinton ran gun control as a candidate in the 2016 election and lost. President Trump ran as pro-gun and LMT Online reports that Clinton is now criticizing him for standing with gun rights organizations.
She said Trump “did everything he could to ingratiate himself with the gun lobby, and is now doing everything he can to gut existing laws.”
Despite losing the election, Clinton claimed that “the vast majority of Americans” support the gun control position, adding, “So we are winning the debate. But now we’ve got to get everyone to vote on this issue.”
