OF COURSE: Hillary Clinton Uses Oregon Shooting to Call for MORE GUN CONTROL
It’s now known that the Oregon shooter obtained his guns legally and that stricter gun control wouldn’t have prevented the shooting but that isn’t stopping Hillary Clinton from further politicizing the incident for her own gain.

In New Hampshire, Clinton pledges to stand up to the gun lobby
Insisting that “our country is better than this,” an emotional Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that Americans must get serious about gun control and be willing to take on the entrenched politics surrounding guns.
“This epidemic of gun violence knows no boundaries, knows no limits of any kind,” Clinton said.
She spoke at Manchester Community College, and drew a link to the Oregon community college where a lone gunman killed nine people in a classroom last week.
When such tragedies occur, “people are quick to say that they offer their thoughts and prayers,” Clinton said. “That’s not enough. How many people have to die before we actually act? Before we come together as a nation?”
Stricter gun control won’t stop mass murders like this one but it will make liberals feel better and that’s the only reason Clinton is talking about this.
