SAF Slams Media & Clinton Campaign Against 2A

BELLEVUE, WA ( – The Sec­ond Amend­ment Foun­da­tion today con­demned attempts by the agen­da-dri­ven media, led by CBS, to pro­vide cov­er for Demo­c­rat Hillary Rod­ham Clinton’s war on gun rights by try­ing to debunk Repub­li­can Don­ald Trump’s state­ment Thurs­day night that Clin­ton “wants to essen­tial­ly abol­ish the Sec­ond Amend­ment.”


CBS News and oth­ers argue that Trump’s alle­ga­tion is not true, and that ‘Clin­ton has spo­ken up for Sec­ond Amend­ment rights on sev­er­al occa­sions,’” not­ed SAF founder and Exec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent Alan M. Got­tlieb. “They are being disin­gen­u­ous at best, and they know it.

More than a year ago,” he recalled, “Clin­ton made gun con­trol a cor­ner­stone of her cam­paign. She talked about using Australia’s gun con­fis­ca­tion as some­thing that might be con­sid­ered. She told a pri­vate fund rais­er last Octo­ber that she thinks the Supreme Court was wrong on the Sec­ond Amend­ment, and in an inter­view with George Stephanopou­los, she even ques­tioned whether the Sec­ond Amend­ment pro­tects an indi­vid­ual right.

While admit­ting that Clin­ton wants to renew the ban on mod­ern sport­ing rifles and repeal a law that pro­tects firearms man­u­fac­tur­ers from friv­o­lous harass­ment law­suits, the offi­cial media spin today is that she’s nev­er actu­al­ly said she would abol­ish the Sec­ond Amend­ment,” Got­tlieb stat­ed. “That’s like say­ing an arson­ist real­ly doesn’t intend to burn a build­ing, even though he’s splash­ing gaso­line on the walls.

The media has adopt­ed the anti-gun lobby’s lex­i­con,” he added. “They rou­tine­ly use decep­tive terms like ‘gun safe­ty’ and ‘gun vio­lence pre­ven­tion’ when they are real­ly talk­ing about gun con­trol or gun pro­hi­bi­tion. It is intel­lec­tu­al­ly dis­hon­est and we’re going to call them on it.”

He said SAF will soon launch a “Media Action Plan” to counter what he calls “rapid­ly grow­ing anti-gun pro­pa­gan­da in the news media.”

The media wants to build a wall around Hillary Clin­ton,” he said, “pro­tect­ing her anti-gun agen­da from pub­lic scruti­ny. We are going to tear down that wall, brick by decep­tive brick. A right that is stran­gled by reg­u­la­tion isn’t a right at all, but a high­ly-restrict­ed gov­ern­ment-con­trolled priv­i­lege. The media is wrong to water down Clinton’s gun con­trol agen­da, and we intend to reveal the truth.”

The Sec­ond Amend­ment Foun­da­tion ( is the nation’s old­est and largest tax-exempt edu­ca­tion, research, pub­lish­ing and legal action group focus­ing on the Con­sti­tu­tion­al right and her­itage to pri­vate­ly own and pos­sess firearms. Found­ed in 1974, The Foun­da­tion has grown to more than 650,000 mem­bers and sup­port­ers and con­ducts many pro­grams designed to bet­ter inform the pub­lic about the con­se­quences of gun con­trol.
