Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- No matter the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Senate and House races, Hillary Clinton, if victorious, intends to attack your gun rights.

Recently leaked emails of Clinton campaign staffers published by WikiLeaks show that the candidate plans to bypass Congress to enact gun control by executive order.

Moreover, undercover video of U.S. Senate candidate Russ Feingold, released this week by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, further exposed Clinton’s intent to impose new gun restrictions by executive fiat.

Starting on October 7, WikiLeaks began releasing batches of emails purportedly hacked from Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. The Clinton campaign emails have caused a great deal of controversy as they exposed the campaign’s collusion with a fawning press, its efforts to defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and campaign staffers’ disparaging remarks about Latinos and Catholics.

Among the several thousand emails released by WikiLeaks were several dispatches that pertained to the campaign’s approach to gun control.

Of particular note is an October 4, 2015 email written by Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon, which detailed the campaign’s intent to share with reporters the types of gun control proposals a President Clinton would support. The email stated:

Circling back around on guns as a follow up to the Friday morning discussion: the Today show has indicated they definitely plan to ask bout guns, and so to have the discussion be more of a news event than her previous times discussing guns, we are going to background reporters tonight on a few of the specific proposals she would support as President – universal background checks of course, but also closing the gun show loophole by executive order and imposing manufacturer liability.

Less than a week after WikiLeaks released this email, activist James O’Keefe released an undercover video filmed in August that bolsters the disturbing content of Fallon’s email. The video shows a disguised O’Keefe and a fellow activist attending a fundraiser for U.S. Senate candidate Russ Feingold of Wisconsin being held in Palo Alto, Calif. O’Keefe’s partner approaches Feingold and asks the candidate, in regards to guns, “If there’s still Republican control in Congress, and if Hillary is elected, is there anything she can do?” Feingold answers, “Well, there might be executive order.”

The video also includes footage of one of the hosts of the fundraiser, Integrated Archive Systems CEO Amy Rao, expressing how she thinks Clinton would pursue control.

In regards to guns, Rao told O’Keefe, “Hillary wants to shut it down,” adding, “If we can get guns away from everyone in this country, she’ll close loopholes, she’ll get rid of assault weapons, she will get rid of being able to buy, you know, unlimited bullets…”

Rao also hosted a fundraiser for Clinton last August.

That Clinton is intent on pursuing gun control by executive order shows not only her contempt for gun owners, but also the rule of law.

The president does not have the legitimate authority to unilaterally restrict private firearm transfers at gun shows; and this fact is supported by the behavior of the Obama administration.

In their eagerness to burden gun owners, the Obama administration has already stretched existing federal law to, and in some cases far beyond, its limits. In late 2015, White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Shultz told reporters that Obama “has asked his team to scrub existing legal authorities to see if there's any additional action we can take administratively,” adding, “The president has made clear he's not satisfied with where we are, and expects that work to be completed soon.” Given these statements and the Obama administration’s antipathy towards firearms, it is difficult to imagine that if an executive order of the type Clinton contemplates were permissible the Obama administration would not have pursued it.

Perhaps Obama, unlike Clinton, acknowledges the Constitution imposes at least some limits on the power of the executive.??

As is custom, the Washington Post rushed to defend Clinton from the gun control leaks. However, rather than deny Clinton’s illegitimate plans to restrict gun rights, the Post sought to brush it off as old news. Indeed, NRA has previously highlighted Clinton’s plans to unilaterally impose new gun controls. However, as is so often the case, the Post fails to grasp the concerns of gun owners and the fact that any further information regarding the contours of Clinton’s anti-gun efforts, and statements from a candidate for U.S. Senate on this matter, are of significant interest to those seeking to protect their fundamental rights.

Aside from the matter of executive gun controls, the Clinton campaign emails published by WikiLeaks include a number of other items of interest to gun rights supporters. Several emails detail the Clinton campaign’s orchestrated attacks on Sanders’ gun control record. An email titled “Sanders Hits,” contains a “Guns” “hit” to be “deployed” against Sanders. Other emails chronicle the campaign’s development of a Clinton anti-gun op-ed for the New York Daily News, including a debate over how hard to “hit Sanders.”

A leaked email that has received significant attention makes clear that Clinton believes “you need both a public and a private position” on a given policy. Other emails appear to show this strategy at work on gun control, as her aides expressed concern about the candidate publicly supporting New York’s ill-named SAFE Act.

On November 19, 2015, Clinton was presented with an award and spoke at a Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence gala in Manhattan. The event was also attended by N.Y. Governor Andrew Cuomo. In the run-up to the event, Clinton campaign research director Tony Carrk and policy advisor Corey Ciorciari discussed the extent to which Clinton should endorse the SAFE Act. Ciorciari emailed Carrk, “Don't see a need to fully embrace the SAFE Act. There are some controversial items in there.” Carrk concurred, responding, “I agree. SAFE is not a safe bet.”

Throughout her career Clinton has supported gun controls that exceed the SAFE Act’s onerous restrictions. Illustrating Clinton’s dual nature, while at the Brady event Clinton was careful to navigate around the controversial SAFE Act, but less than two months earlier Clinton contended that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right to bear arms when she told the attendees of a private Manhattan fundraiser, “the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment…” In District of Columbia v. Heller the court ruled that the federal government could not restrict an individual from keeping an operable handgun in their home for self-defense.

The recent email and undercover video revelations serve as just the latest entries in a voluminous and wide-ranging dossier of evidence showing that Clinton intends to demolish our fundamental rights.

However they are important, as Clinton and her camp’s repeated acknowledgments that they intend to usurp Congress’ sole authority to legislate in order to attack our rights reveals the full character of the danger gun owners face.

    The States,via the People are the final arbiters of what is and is not constitutional. ALL federal firearms laws are illegal under the 2A. Yet the NRA, Ammoland and every other “gun” publication ignores this fact and accepts the validity of the NRA going back to 1934. Under the ratifier’s understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the 2A is a prohibition on the federal government (and prior to the aberration of the Incorporation Doctrine) only on the central government. In effect the B of R says to the central government “You have no voice in this conversation.”… Read more »

    Thank you, TxTruth, for your reply to my post. I did get done what I set out to do, ….. in your case, I got you to check the spelling of your login name and correct it. I also got some emotion out of you in retaliation for my “personal attack” on your political beliefs. If you saw my comments as a personal affront to you alone, then that’s a problem YOU have to work through, I merely replied to your post as a starting point to get some voter minds shifted out of neutral and into any gear which… Read more »

    @OutdoorsGuy, WOW…… Impressive response……NOT! Why don’t you send that little speech you typed to Fox News and maybe they will feature you on one of their shows. Then you can brag about how you are a professional pseudointellectual and cuckservative. Haha the emotion you got out of me from my initial post wasn’t anger, but rather, humor. It’s funny because you are trying too hard to sound smart. Just remember, it’s not the people casting the votes that matter but the people who count the votes that matter. Don’t worry though because the Diebold voting machines, electoral college and all… Read more »

    When, in recent years, was there ever any question as to her intentions re firearms and the citizens rights thereto?

    @ Tx Trurh – And HOW did those Republicans get their seats in Congress?? ….. Hmmm, let’s see, did they get more votes than anyone else who ran for the same seat?? OK then, if they were voted INTO Congress by the voters, then they can be voted OUT OF Congress by the same voters finding the best man to do the job and voting HIM into that seat. I may be wrong, but some of our government elective procedures still work if they are USED instead of simply TALKED about. Talk is cheap, talk the talk all day and,… Read more »

    Very goods points, but too long. Elections do have consequences. Pillory = 35-years of Lefty/Socialist/Statist/Proto-Fascist rulings from the Supreme Court, and the death of America as we’ve know it. Vote for Donald Trump!

    It would be nice if hiLIARy would step aside. It would be even better if she stroked out. Even if Karma took a hand, I would not miss this opportunity to vote against her for the purpose of showing the mainstream media that they can not swing an election: for the purpose of showing illegal aliens that they can not control our elections; and for the purpose of showing the the communists, homosexuals, recreational druggies, corrupt politicians, welfare rats and hard core unemployables cobbled together into the democrat party that they are done living for free off of hard working,… Read more »

    Are you accusing me of sitting on my ass and not going vote? How did those cuck republicans get into office in the first place you ask? Here’s how, they keep telling you want you want to hear and you keep falling for the same old tricks and keeping voting them into office each election. You keep voting RINOs into Republican seats and expecting a different result. I never supported any RINO and I was hoping for a Ron or Rand Paul but as good as their ideas and views are they lack the charisma and alpha male mentality of… Read more »

    The cuckold Republicans in Congress have been going along with the Democrats and letting Obama get away with his agenda all this time. What makes you people think they will be any different if the bull dyke hag Hillary gets into office? They are going to keep bending over because the vast majority of them are bought off or can be blackmailed. BUT…. Don’t be surprised if Hillary steps aside sometime next week and the first tranny Michael Obama steps in for her. Her special interests and establishment handlers realize she is heavily compromised after Trump spoke things about her… Read more »

    “However they are important, as Clinton and her camp’s repeated acknowledgments that they intend to usurp Congress’ sole authority to legislate in order to attack our rights reveals the full character of the danger gun owners face.” Congress does have the sole Constitutional authority to make law, true, but those laws cannot be contrary to the Constitution. Constitutionally speaking, Congress, the President, the Supreme Court (Federal Government) have no authority to regulate, pass laws or otherwise “control” guns. Therefore all gun control measures are Unconstitutional.

    does this remind anyone else of anything that happened back in our history? Something about some ruler “making laws” he had no authority to make? Some king or something? George, perhaps? Interesting that his attempt, and unlawful orders to effect, to impose disarming the colonials of the New World was the one “straw” past which his “loyal subjects” refused to let him push. It was General Thomas Gages’s raiding party to disarm the citizens of Lexington and Concord that lit “the match” of our war for independence. General warrants, arrests with no charges, kangaroo court trials with no defence witnesses… Read more »
