  • NRA’s Latest Ad Gives Trump Supporters More Ammo To Assassinate Clinton (VIDEO)

    Gun Culture, News, Politics

    You would think that after their candidate for president calls appeared to call for gun owners to assassinate Hillary Clinton, the NRA would tone it down for a day or two. Nope. Instead, they released an ad that appeared to double down on Trump’s call for assassination.

    On a regular day, the ad might not raise a lot of eyebrows, although its imagery and outright lies are enough to tickle someone’s itchy trigger finger.

    It might be a coincidence that the $30 million ad buy follows immediately on the heels of Trump saying at a rally:

    “Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know,” Trump said.

    He added: “But I tell you what, that will be a horrible day, if Hillary gets to put her judges in, right now we’re tied.”

    The ad begins with the claim that the Clintons are worth $30 million (a pittance compared to what Trump claims he’s worth) and that she flies around in a private jet. Maybe it’s a bit like this one?

    The ad goes on to say that Clinton is surrounded by armed guards, but she wants to take everyone else’s guns away. She’s never even implied that.

    More than the script, though, the imagery is dark and evocative and the timing couldn’t be better (or worse, depending on the sanity level of who you’re talking to) for the idea that there’s a movement building to kill Trump’s opponent.

    Here’s the video:

    This ad came right after the NRA tried to defend Trump’s comments with this tweet:

    For the record, the Trump campaign is saying that it was all just an innocent misinterpretation, that he didn’t mean to imply someone should kill Hillary:

    Still, Trump’s comments coming just before the NRA released this apocalyptic ad does seem rather coincidental, and it’s further evidence that he (and the NRA) knew exactly what he was doing when he suggested that 2nd Amendment people could “do something,” about Hillary.
