GUNS & PATRIOTS — We all know Hillary Clinton doesn’t like, or expect to be challenged, so when she told New York lawmakers last week that their criminals get their guns from Vermont, she certainly didn’t see this reaction coming.
“This is an out-and-out lie — I can’t state it any more clearly,” said Chris Bradley, president of the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs. “She’s desperate to try to get to the left of Mr. Sanders, and she perceives he’s weak on guns when in fact he’s pretty consistent.”
“Do we really need this sort of negative publicity for a state that’s so heavily reliant on tourism? This is perpetuating a falsehood,” he said.
Even Vermont’s own Gov. Peter Shumlin, an outspoken Clinton supporter, responded to Hillary’s whopper, “You’d have a hard time convincing Vermonters that New York’s crime problems are coming from Vermont.”
“She knows it’s not true. It’s 0.7 percent of crime guns in New York that are traced back to Vermont,” said Eddie Garcia, founder of the Vermont Citizens Defense League. “The New York primaries are coming up, her lead over Bernie Sanders has been cut in half, and she’s taking it out on my state and defaming us.”
