Hillary Clinton Says America Has ‘Too Many Guns’

BY:

Hillary Clinton told a group of supporters on Wednesday that America has too many guns.

During her opening remarks at a gun violence forum in Philadelphia, the Democratic frontrunner attacked the gun industry as the most powerful special interest in America and lamented how many firearms exist in the country.

"When it comes to guns, we have just too many guns," Clinton said. "On the streets, in our homes, in our neighborhoods. And, you know, there's been a lot of talk in this campaign, in the primary campaign, about the power of certain interests in our country. And we do have a bunch of powerful interests, make no mistake about it. But there is no more powerful lobby than the gun lobby."

Clinton has based much of her campaign around her strict gun control stance. She has publicly supported the idea that the United States should consider adopting Australian-style gun confiscation policies and has said in private that the Supreme Court is "wrong" about the Second Amendment.

She has consistently attempted to hit primary opponent Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) from the left on gun control.
