ANALYSIS/OPINION:

For years, Hillary Clinton has aggressively pushed for stricter gun control laws in America.

As she wasted time calling for increased gun control, blaming gun manufacturers and attacking the NRA, American lives were taken at the hands of criminals and terrorists.

Gun control laws didn’t save these Americans and more lives will be lost if Mrs. Clinton is sent to the White House.

“I think we have to try everything that works to try limit the numbers of people and kinds of people who are given access to firearms,” the presumptive Democratic nominee told voters in Flint, Michigan earlier this year.

And, if Mrs. Clinton’s desire to the limit the ability of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families isn’t horrifying enough, take a look at her view on gun-free zones.

Earlier this year, Mr. Trump said that he would like to abolish gun-free zones on his first day in office.

Weighing in on Mr. Trump’s plans, Mrs. Clinton told the Trayvon Martin Foundation, “That’s no way to keep us safe…picture more kids at risk of violence and bigotry.”

Could she be more wrong?

The only person safe in a gun-free zone is the criminal who illegally enters the zone.

Gun-free zones create victim target zones, where citizens are left especially vulnerable to attack and unable to legally defend themselves.

Mrs. Clinton’s support of these victim target zones ensures that responders will not be nearby to protect law-abiding citizens.

And, if you think Congress can protect your Second Amendment rights if Mrs. Clinton becomes President, you are sadly mistaken.

In fact, she has publically discussed her plans to use executive power to override the will of Congress and the people if they do not support her anti-gun agenda in the White House, telling NBC’s “Today” show, ” “I want to work with the Congress, but I will also look for ways as President.”

Clearly, Mrs. Clinton will stop at nothing to take away our rights.

And, as she continues to be protected by armed secret service agents, we, the American people, fear for our lives in the gun-free zones that she is working to protect.

So, on Election Day this November, say no to Mrs. Clinton and say yes to standing with the NRA to protect our Second Amendment rights.
