In a very brief but effective speech at the Republican National Convention this week, NRA-ILA Exec. Director Chris Cox laid out the case for voting against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and by a seeming process of elimination, voting for Donald Trump.
“In case you’re wondering where Hillary Clinton stands, she said, quote, ‘the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment,’” said Cox.
“Think about that. All the Supreme Court said was that you have the right to protect your life in your own home, but Hillary says they’re wrong,” Cox continued. “It’s that simple—a Hillary Clinton Supreme Court means your right to own a firearm is gone.”
As we’ve noted in previous GunsAmerica articles, the next president will appoint certainly one, maybe two or three Supreme Court justices to the bench. Putting even one anti-gun justice on the bench would be devastating for gun ownership in America, let alone two or three.
“Make no mistake: this election is not about the next four years, it’s about the next 40 years,” noted Cox. “So voting for Hillary Clinton—or not voting—is simply not an option.”
Cox went on to attack the conventional wisdom that along gender lines Hillary Clinton has the female vote all locked up.
“But here’s Hillary’s problem. American women are the fastest-growing group of gun owners. Millions own firearms,” said Cox. “Millions, and millions more are thinking about it. It’s not Hillary Clinton who says women should have that choice. It’s Donald Trump.”
It’s true, if more and more women are thinking seriously about their right to keep and bear arms, then they must recognize how a vote for Hillary would gravely endanger their ability to exercise that right.
So, with Hillary Clinton posing an existential threat to the Second Amendment there really is only one option, Donald Trump.
“Friends, the 5 million men and women of the National Rifle Association will fight without apology for your right to protect your life. But we are on the cusp of losing this great American freedom and, with it, this
great nation,” explained Cox.
“The only way we save it—the only way we save it—is by electing Donald Trump the next president of the United States,” said Cox.
