Dave Kopel: NRA Members Tipped the Balance for Trump

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to set confirmation hearings for Obama Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, saying that it should be the next president that nominates the replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Now President-elect Donald Trump will do that, having issued a list of potential nominees that are pro-Second Amendment. The Independence Institute’s Dave Kopel reflects on how different things would be if the election had gone the other way. Hillary’s hostility to gun rights has been consistent, as has been her lying about it. If not for the grassroots support of NRA members, Hillary Clinton would soon be in a position to name a fifth anti-gun nominee to the Supreme Court. Originally aired on Cam & Co 11/14/16.
