Is THIS Why Mr. Trump Is Siding With Clinton On Gun Control and AGAINST The Constitution…???
Cicilline was answering the call of President Barack Obama and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, to keep “weapons of war” off the streets.But Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi nixed it. Better, she said, to focus on barring terror suspects from buying guns. That measure’s a no-brainer for Democrats, she reasoned, and easier to explain to the public.
“It’s not that we’re not strong enough to make the fight. It’s just that we want to win the fight,” Pelosi said to her Democratic colleagues, according to sources in the room. “What we are trying to do — and forget the politics — what we are trying to do is save lives. What we are trying to do is to say that the Republicans will not even go to this place which overwhelmingly the American people support.”
The top gun control advocates in the country share Pelosi’s strategy. They emphasize measures that have broad support — like expanding background checks — rather than trying to take America’s most popular rifle and its copy-cat semi-automatics (like the Sig Sauer MCX used in Orlando) off the shelves.
