 by AWR Hawkins 7 May 2014

On May 7th CNN's John King played a video of Hillary Clinton saying, "We have to rein in what has become [an] almost article of faith, that anybody can have a gun anywhere, [at] any time."

King quickly added, "She's talking in the context of mental health," but then he expressed obvious concern that this soundbite is going to make a great anti-Hillary commercial in southern Ohio, Florida, Colorado, and North Carolina, among other places.

As Breitbart News reported earlier on May 7th, Hillary was not talking about mental health issues at this point but about "fully licensed" and "fully validated" gun owners. She said so herself.

King then asked CNN correspondent Peter Hamby for comment, and Hamby said:

Quote
What struck me about this is, having covered Hillary Clinton during the 2008 Democrat primary, when she was really fighting from behind and sort of adopting that blue collar, working class mantle, she talked a lot about how important guns are in the American fabric [and] in our culture. To me this was a pretty big rhetorical distance from that time, but a lot has changed since then... And to your point [John], in some competitive states I think there are pockets where guns are important and this is going to be something of an issue for her I think.


Translation: Yep, Hillary really stepped in it this time.

Yes, she did step in it.  Her words will be replayed over and over.

She was either not thinking, believes "reining in" gun rights is somehow popular, or she's not running.

Yep, just like Obama "stepped in it" with Joe the plumber and the spread the wealth around statement.

The MSM will ignore it. The echo chamber will dwell on it. Americans will vote for the hag. Especially women.

You misjudge the strength of the gun issue. 

NOBODY wins national elections preaching gun control.  And this is gun control, squared.

Agreed.  Every gun owner's head raises when someone says something like this.  It won't matter to her base, but it sure will matter to the gun owner.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Perhaps Breibart is scanning GOPBR for stories!
