Okay DB here's a fact for you.
In her answer to a question about her views on gun rights, Clinton said she opposed the Supreme Court's Heller decision, which recognized the constitutional right for individuals to own and carry firearms, because it was about whether toddlers should have guns.
Yes, she said that.
So what was the Heller case really about? It was about whether Dick Anthony Heller, a 66-year-old police officer, should be legally allowed to own and bear a personal firearm to defend himself and his family at home.
No mention of toddlers. Because the case wasn't about toddlers. It was about whether the District of Columbia's "total ban on handguns" -- the Supreme Court's characterization of the law at issue in the case -- was constitutional.
