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. 

Hillary Clinton
On November 19, 2015, Clinton was presented with an award and spoke at a Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence gala in Manhattan.

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.

    1. 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.”
      If you accept that illegal Executive Orders and illegal federal “laws” or illegal “rule making agencies” can reduce or infringe upon the RKBA, then you HAVE ALREADY LOST!
      Under the anti commandeering doctrine (upheld by SCOTUS since 1842 for you legalists) your state is NOT required to recognize or assist in the enforcement of federal law including firearms law.
      So, if “gun people” start showing even a fraction of the balls the “marijuana people” have shown, you would have less worry and more freedom. Instead, you all remain fixated and paralyzed by the “Hillary will abolish the 2A” mantra.
      Grow a set a balls. Organize in your state to nullify federal firearms laws. And forget the NRA. They are devoted to raising money. They will NOT assist you in the non compliance of federal gun laws.

    2. 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 would get the thinking process going again. I feel good that you responded in a manner that I was trying to elicit from more people, but it IS a start and I thank you for your help.

      I have no favorites in this race, both candidates are lying, cheating, stealing, conniving politicians the likes of which we have had in the government for way too many years now. And it is such a shame that there are so many voters with a “let the other guy handle things” attitude that it may just take people like myself, who have been silent for so long, to stir the waters and ruffle a few feathers to take action before we wind up in a Socialist state of affairs or worse.

      Truth be known, I will vote for Trump, not for anything he might do or say he will do, but for the next in line if anything happens to the president during the next term in office. I feel that Me. Pence may have a cool and rational head about him, from what little reading I can find on the man, and that is a consideration for me because you cannot predict the future in these troubled times we are facing.

      I watched the debate last evening up to the point where Trump and Clinton forgot all about their “focus” on the issues ….. AGAIN, and went back to more of the same old rhetoric of what one did 30 years ago and what the other said but didn’t mean because it was “taken out of context” so I felt like the paid off media had done a very good bait and switch job on the American public, in that, they got a few of us to watch and see if these two yahoos could FOCUS for just one hour on the issues and maybe tell the voters some specifics of what they wanted to do to heal this country. Well, that didn’t happen, Trump came back with his all-too-boring byline of “I am going to do many good things for this country” with absolutely no SPECIFICS of WHAT he will do, and old wrinkled “Country Milk Maid” would counter with a knowing smile for those who like to see teeth but no noise come out of her mouth, and say “Well, Donald, (like they are bosom buddies off camera) hasn’t said this or done that but I have worked very hard for my entire political life to make things right and to prove that I am an honest, righteous, up front transparent person who at least 99% of the American people live dearly” type of hype line that is also very primitive in light of her proven record for stealing, lying, and saying anything on a spur of the moment blurt and then switch onto a whole other topic so nobody has a chance to challenge her credentials on the truth of what she said.

      Yeah, you are correct, Tx, in saying that there are many RINOS serving under false pretenses in our Congress but they also don’t seem to care if we, The Voters, have any concerns about their two faced actions when they say one thing but vote in an entirely different manner. But, I repeat we, the VOTERS, put them in office and we, the VOTERS, can remove them from that same office. It isn’t as easy as most complacent people would like it to be but nothing in life is all that easy for those who like to complain but don’t have enough time to do something about a situation.

      When a person doesn’t have the time to step into a voting booth and vote their feelings, they should keep their feelings to themselves and shut up. That is no reflection on you personally, BTW, just my un-political way of saying, if you (meaning anyone “you”) want to see change, do something about it yourself, don’t rely on everyone else to do the work for you. If YOU don’t have time to vote, a half hour out of your all important life to cast YOUR vote, how do you expect all the other voters to do the job for you?? And what gives YOU the right to bore the rest of us, who DID cast a vote, with you whining and complaining about how the situation still isn’t fixed?? Hey, if you want to “talk the talk”, then one time on election day, try to “walk the walk” right into your neighborhood voting plaza and cast YOUR one vote for YOUR choice for office. THEN, you can whine and complain when others do what you didn’t do. They stayed home and ate chips and dip while watching the election returns, all the while whining and complaining about “I knew it would go this way, I knew that b**ch would win” and all the other excuses that you will hear ad nauseum after the fact. (Just be sure to make your “whine” short and sweet so we can move on to more important items, eh? [Insert smiling emoticon here])

      At the risk of belaboring the issue, on Nov. 8, (nothing personal here Tx) GET OFF YOUR DEAD ASSES AND GET OUT AND VOTE …….. OR KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT IF IT GOES SOUTH AT THE END OF THE DAY!!!

      1. @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 the voting fraud perpetuated by the Demoncrats have you covered.

        Regardless of the rigged voting machines, the rigged system, and voter fraud, I will be voting(like I always have) for Trump in good conscience and so people like you can’t say that all I do is bitch and whine. Get ready though because if/when Hillary wins, you are going to see things happen on a biblical level.

        One last thing, maybe you should do as your name suggests and just stick to talking about things related to the “Outdoors” and leave the talking about voting and politics to people who are more in the know.
        [insert smiling emoticon here]

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

    4. @ 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, at the end of that day, nothing happens. Walk the walk when needed and maybe, just maybe, the American VOTER can still have a real say in getting this country turned around. Trump for president?? It can be a SURE bet if voters turn out and VOTE for the man come Nov. 8 and not sit at home and bitch about how the election is “turning out”!! Everyone is asked to “Walk the Walk” one time per election, whether it be a local, regional, statewide, or a national election. One time in every voters immediate life when they are asked to get up off their dead ASSES and step into the voting booth and make their mark, and it simply amazes me that such a large chunk of this population of this great country don’t have the where-with-all to just do one thing that might make a small difference. Each vote will cast an individual acceptance for one or the other candidate, one small voice saying “Yeah, I will trust this person to represent me” and, if that doesn’t work, there is always an upcoming election for which each of us can rectify that situation if need be. Don’t cry if things don’t turn out the way you thought they should, if you don’t cast YOUR vote on the 8th, you have no room to bitch or moan about anything but how lazy and stupid you were not to do your part and try to make a difference.

      You can put all the protests and demonstrations and rallies and all the talk show hosts, who have an opinion to speak, and toss them all into a big bag and shake it up and all that falls out when you turn that bag upside down is a lot of hot air which is only good for lifting big balloons up into the sky with no means of control. And as the wind currents take that bag of hot air away to some distant place, it didn’t make a bit of difference what generated the air inside the bag, the destination was always just a happenstance.

      1. 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!

      2. 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, and enterprising Americans

      3. 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 Trump. Ted Cruz was a total phony and I don’t trust him since he is married to a globalist goon who works for Goldman Sachs and was a member of the CFR where she was on a special committee that drew up plans to merge the US with Canada and Mexico forming a North American Union. Similar to what we see with the EU where unelected bureaucrats make decisions for us. Look how well that’s working out for Europe. If you don’t know why Ted Cruz being connected to a lady like that is a very bad thing and a major red flag not mention that he’s not even eligible to become president due to him not being a natural born citizen, then you have a lot of homework to do. Trump isn’t perfect and he never claimed to be but a least he is calling Hillary on her BS/crimes, wants to lower taxes, wants to get out of these lopsided trade deals that decimate American jobs, secure the border and send illegals packing, doesn’t care about being politically correct and doesn’t want to start WW III aka the apocalypse with the Ruskies like Clinton and her globalist handlers do.

    5. 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 and her crime family in the last debate that no other cuck Republican would have dared said, her health being a total liability with the corporate whore mainstream media totally covering for her, and the fact that the wiki leaks emails are exposing this demon for what she really is.

    6. HAVE U “”BUMP”” YOUR HEAD!!! IF ***HEIL KILERY*** GETS IN ALL SHE NEEDS IS A STROKE OF A PEN!!! IT’S CALLED EXECUTIVE ORDER!!!!!!! AND THAT MY FRIEND IS ALL IT’S GONNA TAKE. THAT””CHA-NOD”” KENYAN BORN HAS ALREADY USED IT.
      AND IF!!!! SHE GETS IN THERE SHE’LL B BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS LOOOOOKING FOR A INK PEN!!! KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY, ***GOD BLESS THE USA!!! GET OUT AND VOTE FOR “””TRUMP”””!!! AND GOD HELP US ALL!!! IF!!! SHE GETS IN!!

    7. “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.

      1. 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 allowed, seizure of anything the government could remotely imagine to be “war supplies” (things like…. more than a “reasonable” amount of flour or grain, extra blankets, more dinner plates than there were family members, a small cask of brandy, whatever the British Redcoat took a fancy to……. ) restricting travel, seizure of printing presses that printed things they did not like, taxes to fund George’s wars in Europe and elsewhere, NONE of these things caused the Colonials to fire upon the “enforcers” of King George. But when it came to seizing their arms, they determined to deliver them… lead first.
