Eleanor Clift: Newtown Families and Gabby Giffords Will Be More Powerful Than the NRA

April 13th, 2013 4:39 PM

"The Newtown families and Gabby Giffords are in the gun debate to stay, and over time their voices will be more powerful than the NRA."

So said Newsweek's Eleanor Clift during the predictions segment on PBS's McLaughlin Group Friday (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

"The culture of guns is beginning to go through a transformation in this country," she added.

Maybe she should say that with a straight face to the people of Chicago so riddled with the kind of gun violence pending legislation will have absolutely no impact on whatsoever.

But nobody seems to care about that - certainly not media members such as Clift.

Tis far more important to restrict gun ownership of law-abiding citizens.
