Hillary Clinton’s politically motivated response to the worst shooting in American history is being called out by a number of conservative voices, including one respected judge.
Judge Jeanine Pirro went on television to call Hillary Clinton out for trying to capitalize on this tragedy. Clinton’s immediate response, Pirro said, was a shameless political message to advance her gun-control agenda for this nation, according to a Twitter post from Fox News.

The former presidential candidate, after hearing the news of the Las Vegas tragedy, tweeted a message that left many Americans angry. “The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.”
She followed-up with another message, “Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.”
It was a move that Judge Pirro said was an attempt to manipulate the “the pain” and “the anger” of Americans, and instead, direct it at lawful gun-owners.
“How dare [Clinton] connect law-abiding citizens exercising our Second Amendment rights to a mass murderer of innocent civilians. How dare you call us ‘complicit’ with a wack-job, a misfit, who is the epitome of evil,” she said.
“Hillary, there’s a reason you lost the election. As Americans come together, you seek to divide, not empathize, showing just how hollow a tin man you are. In your desperate attempt to be relevant, you go after gun owners in the NRA, when this guy wasn’t even a member of the NRA,” Pirro added.
She brought up the point of how not all people should be blamed nor punished because of a few bad apples. “Just as we cannot blame all Muslims for the actions of a few, how about you not blame all gun owners for the actions of Paddock,” Pirro said.
Hillary Clinton had appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon a few days ago, in which the conversation veered onto the topic of gun control. Despite losing the election, she promised that she would continue to do everything possible to fight for gun control, critical that one of President Trump’s first actions was to repeal Obama’s Social Security gun ban, according to Breitbart.
Judge Jeanine Pirro called Hillary out on her shameless political message to advance her gun-control agenda for this nation. Did Hillary take advantage of a tragedy?
The failed presidential candidate has already been called out for her lack understanding of how firearms work. Silencers, for instance, still produce a noise equivalent to a jack-hammer, so it’s unlikely that if Paddock had one, it would have changed anything about the situation.
Neither has Clinton criticized former-President Barack Obama for passing legislation that permitted the use of “bump stock” devices, which allows semi-automatic weapons to fire at a rate closer to the speed of automatic fire. The ATF, when reviewing the device, described it as “a goofy, little doodad,” a comment that seems remarkably misguided in the light of recent events.
It’s disgusting that Hillary Clinton, instead of showing her sympathies to the victims, chose to try and take advantage of the tragedy to push her own political and ideological agendas. It’s a move that Americans find in terrible taste.
