'The gun worshippers have a huge advantage because of the filibuster,' Clinton said

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attacked Republicans for exploiting "people’s unwarranted fears" as she made a new call for gun control.

During an interview with Jennifer Palmieri, who was her former campaign spokeswoman in 2016 before she was defeated by Donald Trump, Clinton said:

“You know, democracy is the balancing of interests and rights, and unfortunately at this time, the gun worshippers have a huge advantage because of the filibuster and because of their shameless exploitation of people’s unwarranted fears."

Clinton blasted gun advocate Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas,

“The opportunists on the other side, like Cruz and his ilk, they know better."

"And they are in the position of trying to keep people really riled up and scared that sensible gun legislation like we had in the ‘90s for 10 years will somehow undermine their rights,” she said.

Clinton then claimed average Americans' rights are being infringed upon.

“Well, what about the rights of all the rest of us?"

"The rights of us to go to work, go shopping, go on dates to the movie theater, go to school, for heaven’s sakes — what about the rest of us?”

But Clinton did not get a good response from Twitter.

A Cruz spokesman said Democrats “want to take away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans.”

“It’s unfortunate they would rather pander to their liberal base than pass bipartisan legislation like Grassley-Cruz and actually help reduce mass shootings in our country,” the spokesman told the Washington Examiner.

Cruz has called for action on a 2013 proposal he co-authored with Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa that would criminalize straw purchases and upgrade the FBI background check system.

Democrats have also urged the Senate to vote on two gun control bills that passed the House.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden is “working on a couple of levers to enact gun control legislation."

Democratic Reps. Mike Thompson of California, Val Demings of Florida, Joe Neguse, and Ed Perlmutter wrote to Biden to ban some semi-automatic handguns.

“Concealable assault-style firearms that fire rifle rounds pose an unreasonable threat to our communities and should be fully regulated under the National Firearms Act consistent with the intent and history of the law,” the Democrats’ letter read.

“The recent tragedy in Boulder, Colorado where 10 people including a police officer were killed is one in a string of deadly incidents involving this style of weapon.”

Democrats have also urged the Senate to vote on two gun control bills that passed the House.

“In the 20 days since the House passed these common-sense gun violence prevention measures, Americans of all ages across the country have lost their lives to gun violence, and their families, friends, and communities have had their lives forever shattered,” the letter continued.

“In honor of those who have been murdered in their workplaces, grocery stores, and neighborhoods since March 11 and the generations of Americans lost to gun violence, the Senate must act and bring H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446 for a vote.”
