NRA Already Hyping Up Lies About Hillary Clinton To Tinfoil Hat Wearing Followers

The NRA has mastered the art of manipulating their simple-minded members and followers into purchasing more and more firearms and ammo based off of lies that claim Democrats want to take their guns.

For the last seven years, we’ve heard nothing but lie after lie about President Obama taking everyone’s guns and making us vulnerable as a nation. Ironically, he’s actually expanded gun rights, and not ironically, it doesn’t seem he ever has taken, nor plans to take, anyone’s firearm.

However, this line sells guns. It gets people to run out to stores and stock up on guns and ammo. The NRA is in bed with the gun manufacturers and it’s, quite honestly, a clever little scheme they’ve doctored up to profit off people too stupid to realize they’re being manipulated.

Now, with Hillary Clinton being the front-runner in the Democratic field of choices for President of the United States, the NRA has wasted no time redirecting their lies to spread misinformation about the former Secretary of State.

In a recent article shared on both the NRA website and their sister lobbying website, the NRA goes all in, saying:

“Whether or not she understands the Second Amendment, Hillary Clinton disdains and distrusts that freedom. She distrusts the American people to possess that freedom. So she wants control over every aspect of your right to keep and bear arms—so she can deny it at will.”

In other words: She’s gonna take yer guns!!! Quick, go to the store and buy as much as you can! This has nothing to do with profit! She’s gonna take yer guns!!!

I mean, c’mon now. How stupid do you need to be to believe this hype? “She wants to control over every aspect of you right to keep and bear arms — so she can deny it at will.” Really?? I personally like the double dash before the end of the sentence for added drama. Well played.

Does Clinton want to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines? Yes she has said this. However, is that banning all weapons and ammunition? No, not at all. Is this “control over every aspect of your right to keep and bear arms?” No, not at all. After recent shootings where high-capacity magazines were used and the death toll could’ve been dramatically reduced, this is just common sense, and to not agree with it is selfish. They’re not needed in civilian use.

Others also just simply fabricate quotes to make Clinton say things she never said to rile up the gun enthusiasts.

What did Clinton just actually recently say regarding gun rights?

“We’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith than anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime, and I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people. I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns.”

That makes perfect sense. However, we have a lot of people in this nation who don’t have a lot of common sense. They only think of themselves and the needs they believe directly affect them.

The NRA, of course, took this as a threat, because they would like everybody to have a gun anywhere, anytime. They and the Republicans they fund in Congress fight against common sense reform, because as you know… this will reduce profits.

The NRA is also digging up past quotes of Clinton to try to drive the fear and have wasted no time in switching their logline of “Obama’s going to take your guns” to “Hillary is going to take your guns.” And their simple-minded, tinfoil hat wearing followers bite into the nonsense hook, line, and sinker.
