Clinton Invokes San Bernardino Terrorist Attack To Advance Her Anti-Gun Agenda

- December 18, 2015

Clinton Wasted No-Time To Invoke The Shooting As A Call To Action On One Of Her Top Policy Priorities: Gun Control

In Wake Of San Bernardino Shooting, "Clinton's Embrace Of Gun Control Is On The Verge Of Becoming A Defining Issue In The Campaign." "Now, with yet another mass shooting striking fear across the country after a reported 14 people were killed and another 17 injured in a shooting rampage in San Bernardino, California, Clinton's embrace of gun control is on the verge of becoming a defining issue in the campaign, with all the political benefits and detriments associated with confronting the National Rifle Association and 2nd Amendment activists across the country." (Annie Karni, "Clinton Makes Gun Control A Defining Cause," Politico, 12/2/15)

Clinton Pushed Her Gun Control Agenda As The San Bernardino Events Were Still Unfolding . "As the shooting unfolded Wednesday morning, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton was addressing the issue of gun control in Orlando and called for 'comprehensive background checks' and 'closing gun show loopholes.'" (Jordyn Phelps, "San Bernardino Shooting Being Politicized By President Obama And Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina Says," ABC News, 12/3/15)

Two Days After The San Bernardino Shooting, Clinton Called For A Ban On Gun Ownership For The Controversial "No-Fly List." "Clinton has quickly joined with one of President Barack Obama's top talking points and called for a ban on guns for anyone placed on the 'No Fly List.' 'I've gotta tell you if you are too dangerous to fly in America you are too dangerous to buy a gun in America,' Clinton said during a stop in Sioux City, Iowa, Friday." (Tom LoBianco and Dan Merica, "Gun Control Remains A Wedge Issue Hurting Bernie Sanders," CNN, 12/4/15)

  • "The Terrorist-List Proposal Would Not Have Affected The San Bernardino Attackers." "It is worth noting that the terrorist-list proposal would not have affected the San Bernardino attackers because neither of them was on the watch list, at least as far as has been reported. And although backers of the measure cite Government Accountability Office data that show more than 2,000 people on the list bought firearms from 2004 to 2014, there's no available information on whether any of those weapons have been used in a crime, let alone an act of terrorism." ("Should People On The No-Fly List Be Able To Buy Guns? Yes," Los Angeles Times, 12/8/15)
