Hillary Clinton is not doing the Democrats any favors.
The two-time failed presidential candidate has not abandoned her White House aspirations.
And Hillary Clinton said six words that every Democrat immediately regretted.
Hillary Clinton dropped another clue she is preparing to run for president again in 2024.
Clinton made sure to make her presence known in major fights by always staking out the farthest left political ground in order to appeal to Democrat primary voters.
The latest example came when Clinton tweeted that “no one actually needs an AR-15.”

Clinton’s tweet came in the wake of tragedies in Uvalde, Texas and Buffalo, New York.
After those events, Democrats got much more aggressive in their rhetoric about banning and confiscating guns.
Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke – who is running for governor in the red state of Texas – announced that he would ban AR-15s and order government agents to go door-to-door to seize them from residents.
“It’s why I’ve taken the position that I don’t think we should have AR-15s and AK-47s in civilian life,” O’Rourke told a crowd. “They belong on a battlefield.”
“But I don’t think that the people who have them right now in civilian use should be able to keep them,” O’Rourke added.
New York Congressman Mondaire Jones went so far as even demanding Democrats nuke the legislative filibuster and pack the Supreme Court in order to ram legislation through Congress that would ban all semi-automatic weapons.
Such a ban would include handguns.
Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY):
“You will not stop us from passing [gun control]. If the filibuster obstructs us, we will abolish it. If the Supreme Court objects, we will expand. We will not rest until we’ve taken weapons of war out of our communities.” pic.twitter.com/0x3t1aJXBn

But Hillary Clinton and the rest of the gun grabbers in the Democrat Party and corporate media are way out over the skis on this issue.
CNN’s polling analyst Harry Enten pointed to Gallup polling data which found that just 36 percent of Americans favored stricter gun laws with a strong majority wanting laws to either stay the same or be looser.
“This year, only 36% of Americans said they were dissatisfied and wanted stricter gun control laws. Sixty-one percent were either satisfied (41%), dissatisfied but wanted less strict laws (13%) or dissatisfied and wanted no change (7%),” Enten wrote.
Gun control is a political loser for Democrats.
After Bill Clinton signed the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban into law Republicans won 52 seats and picked up control of the House of Representatives for the first time since 1948.
The GOP also swept control of the Senate that year as well.
In the 2014 midterms Republicans gained nine Senate seats in large part due to a voter backlash to Democrats exploiting the tragedy at Sandy Hook to try and muscle a national gun registration database into law.
And now Democrats are looking to repeat that mistake in 2022 and 2024 with Hillary Clinton and other top Democrats making the elections a referendum on gun control.
