The White House is Hillary Clinton’s for the taking.
Even if the FBI recommends she be indicted for mishandling classified information, the Obama administration is almost certainly going to refuse.
And it won’t hurt her much, as most Americans already think she’s guilty.
Even with the weight of scandal dragging her down, she boasts large leads over her presumptive Republican opponents.
And she’s on track to raise far more money than any Republican opponent can self-fund or raise against her.
But Hillary may have made one fatal error.
She’s gone hard against guns at a time when support for gun rights is higher than ever.
Gun expert Frank Miniter, writing for Forbes, notes:
But now Hillary is all in against gun rights at a time when gun ownership in America has been rising for at least a decade and now surpasses 100 million gun owners. Hillary has even made her desire to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) into a common part of her stump speeches. She says the PLCAA gives gun makers “carte blanche” protection from civil liability, which is such a whopper that Politifact looked into this and ruled Clinton’s claim to be “false.”
To gauge how the public feels about this, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for firearms manufacturers, commissioned a poll and found that 7 of 10 voters don’t agree with Hillary’s desire to make gun manufacturers and retailers pay for the actions of criminals.
Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel, said, “We commissioned this poll to help determine where Americans stand. They have told us. Now, it’s time for politicians to demonstrate that they have some respect for the good sense of the people and to stop vilifying the hard-working people of an entire industry and exploiting real tragedy that is the result of criminal conduct.”
