[VIDEO] Hillary says ‘GOP totally sold to gun lobby,’ yet misses a glaring reality

Further proving that she really isn’t going to go away, Hillary Clinton is continuing to speak out on gun cointrol following the massacre in Las Vegas. After initially putting the NRA on blast for supporting legislation allowing greater access to gun suppressors (which, contrary to popular belief, don’t literally silence a firearm) even though the Vegas shooter didn’t use them, she’s accusing Congress of being bought off by the NRA.

According to Fox News:

In an appearance on “The Tonight Show,” the former Democratic presidential candidate blasted the Republican response to Sunday night’s mass shooting that left 58 people dead and nearly 500 wounded.

“I can’t believe that one whole political party in the greatest country on earth is totally sold to the gun lobby,” she told host Jimmy Fallon.

“The vast majority of Americans and the vast majority of gun owners know we need common sense gun safety measures,” she continued.

Watch below:

We already reported earlier this week that the NRA’s spending power is negligible compared to those of liberal groups. While the NRA has donated about $3.5 million to current members of Congress since 1998, that’s a drop in the bucket next to a two decade period. Especially when you compare them to the Left’s organizations.

In fact, of the 15 largest organizational donors, 11 give disproportionately to Democrats:

It’s also next to nothing in comparison to the $1.2 billion that Hillary Clinton wasted on her 2016 Presidential run.

And speaking of the GOP being beholden to the gun lobby, perhaps Hillary isn’t aware that the NRA represents the interests of millions of people. Have you seen any calls for gun control from Democrats up for reelection in Red States?
