• Trump: Hillary Should Disarm Her Bodyguards If She Really Believes ‘Guns Don’t Keep You Safe’

    Hillary Clinton bragged about duck hunting,  talked of learning to shoot a gun as a child and championed the Second Amendment seven years ago, when she was fighting an exhaustive Democratic primary battle against then-Sen. Barack Obama. Clinton. Her campaign in Indiana sent around negative mailers pasted with rifles, accusing Obama of being weak on gun rights.

    Today, Clinton who is heavily armed by bodyguards, is in favor of gun control measures, is calling for a “national movement” to “stand up to the NRA” and is lambasting Republicans for voting against gun control legislation.

    The change in Clinton’s approach to guns comes as the Democratic Party at large has shifted. Democrats are using terrorism to push stricter gun control in the United States and claim that mass murders are a symptom of America’s puzzling devotion to guns. Yet, the great irony of the gun control debate is that everyone who calls for gun control still wants a man with a gun protecting him.

    GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump called out Hillary Clinton’s hypocrisy Sunday.

    From The Hill:

    Donald Trump is challenging Hillary Clinton to “disarm” her bodyguards to demonstrate she doesn’t need guns for protection.

    The Republican presidential front-runner took to Twitter to dare Clinton to put her money where her mouth is.

    “Hillary said that guns don’t keep you safe,” Trumped tweeted Sunday. “If she really believes that, she should demand that her heavily armed bodyguards quickly disarm!”

    Clinton has a strong record of gun control. In October, she proposed a series of executive orders aimed at reducing gun violence, which prompted President Obama to issue his own gun control plan.

    Republicans argue that armed citizens are better able to defend themselves in cases of domestic terrorism, such as the mass shooting in Paris.

    But Democrats say more guns will only escalate the situation. Clinton has turned her focus toward keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people.

    Pro-gun control Democrats may think we have an “upper class” that deserves to be protected with guns while it’s okay if the “peons” get shot, but that goes against the core of what America is supposed to be.

    Even run-of-the-mill Democrats who want to take guns away from everyone else will unhesitatingly pick up the phone and call the police if they feel threatened — so that a man with a gun can show up and make them safe.
