KEENE, N.H. (WUNF) — Hillary Clinton, who is campaigning in New Hampshire, today applauded President Obama’s soon-to-be-announced executive action that would strengthen background checks and make it harder for dealers to sell guns to criminals.
Clinton warned how the progress made by this executive order would be reversed if a Republican wins the White House.
Hillary Clinton released a statement and said that “When I came out with my proposals for common sense gun safety measures, I did say that in the absence of Congressional action, I would use executive authority to go as far as would be possible under the law and I applaud the President for taking a hard look at that and I believe he will take some actions to require more gun sellers to do background checks.”
Clinton said that if a Republican President was elected he would be delighted to reverse executive orders Pres. Obama made. She says “I know that a Republican president would delight in the very first day, reversing executive orders that President Obama has made, including this one that we expect him to make.”
Clinton addressed President Obama’s executive action at an event in Derry, and she will speak about it again later today in Keene, NH. Clinton will be introduced by former Congressman Dick Swett.
