PolitiFact, a website “that rates the accuracy of claims by elected officials and others who speak up in American politics,” recently published an article that purported to fact-check one of the NRA’s political mailers regarding Secretary Hillary Clinton’s push for gun confiscation in America.
Warren Fiske, who wrote the “article,” tried refuting the NRA’s claims by utilizing Secretary Clinton’s entire answer to a question in a New Hampshire town hall meeting. Mrs. Clinton was asked: “Australia managed to take away tens of thousands – millions – of handguns and in one year they were all gone. Can we do that and why? If we can’t, why not?”
Secretary Clinton responded with the following answer:
Now (U.S.) communities have done that; communities have done gun buyback programs. But I think it would be worth considering doing that on the national level if that could be arranged.Clinton, in her own words, said she would consider a gun buyback program on a national level. Somehow, Fiske took this as the NRA twisting Clinton’s words.
