Last night Hillary Clinton left a message on her personal Twitter account, saying: “Gun owners can be equated to terrorists with the destruction they cause.” This comes after the devastating Las Vegas shooting earlier this month. The shooting that left dozens dead and hundred injured has split the country yet again about how to prevent these mass shooting in the future. Democrats have historically blamed a lack of gun control for shootings, but this tweet sets a new precedent blaming legal gun owners for mass shootings.
Naturally, gun owners responded to Clinton’s tweet. Some calling out the hypocrisy of blaming an entire group for the actions of a few, which is what Liberals often criticize people on right for in regards to Islamic terrorism.
Whether you agree with Clinton, pointing blame at those you need to make change is not productive at all. Alienating large portions of the population of the population is exactly what kept her from the White House this last election, and it looks like she hasn’t learnt her lesson.
