    The NRA's America's First Freedom magazine has a great article detailing the former Clinton Administrations internal letters and memos with regard to gun control. It lays out the strategies the Clinton Administration was pursuing to reduce legal gun ownership using the Administration's own memos:
    http://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2015/11/30/the-clinton-files/

    Probably one of the most interesting memos is a January 1994 memo from President Carter's press secretary explaining that gun control was mostly ineffectual ideas that needed re-thinking and that pushing the issue would cost the Democrats control of Congress. Apparently, George Stephanopolous (then working as Clinton's press secretary rather than news anchor) agreed with it and passed it on to Clinton, who ignored it.

    This article is particularly relevant given that Hillary Clinton is currently the leading Democratic nominee and is already pursuing policy in line with these same memos.

    Yes.. thanks for sharing.

    I think what's particularly interesting is the actual faxed memo from Jody Powell to George Stephanopolous and forwarded to Bill Clinton.

    It's a well thought out memo from an admitted anti gun guy that basically says gun control doesn't work because it only affects the law abiding people and that emphasis needs to be on enforcement rather than creating more ineffective and unenforced laws.

    He also states that the 'NRA is effectively right' in that that regard.

    President Obama probably has never read Jody Powell's memo. But even if he has he would never stop spouting his gun control rhetoric.

    He was at again today after the San Bernardino shootings. This man is an obsessed hoplophobe.

    Thank you for that link to the article, Mr. Roberts. An enlightening read.
