Hillary Clinton is an expert blame shifter and now that she is retiring from campaigning to hold a public office, this might be her new job title.
She has come out pointing the finger at Republican VOTERS and the National Rifle Association for the events that occurred on Sunday evening in Las Vegas.
During the Center for American Progress podcast, the two-time failed presidential candidate bluntly blamed Republican voters for their ‘role’ in Stephen Paddock’s mass shooting.
“In the area of gun violence, what are some of those bolder solutions? Do we need to start having a serious conversation about having fewer guns in America?” asked the host.
“I think the way that the Republican Party has been captured by the NRA, which has intimidated a lot of democrats… is one of the worst developments of the last 25 years. My husband took on the NRA and beat them. It did contribute to losing the Congress in ’94,” said Clinton.
“What happened in Las Vegas was just another horrible example of people with too many guns and too few restraints,” she added.
“Do you feel like they’re complicit, the GOP and the NRA, in the gun epidemic we’re seeing in America?” pressed the host.
“Of course they are! of course they are!” said Hillary. “The Brady Bill actually kept two million guns out of the hands of people who weren’t supposed to have them. If we had gone forward with the background check capacity that we should have had, and that it was up to date… my gosh, we computerize everything, and we can’t computerize that?”
