Whenever Bill Clinton pops back into the political spotlight his scandalous past is never trailing far behind.
Democrats paid the price for Clinton’s behavior in 2016 when voters decided they couldn’t take any more Clinton drama in the White House.
And now this giant lie from Bill Clinton’s past will take down the Democrat Party in 2020.
Bill Clinton joined other Democrats in celebrating the tragedies in Dayton and El Paso to push their anti-gun agenda.
Clinton and his fellow travelers couldn’t even wait for the victims’ families to bury their dead before demanding the government ban guns.
The former President demanded Congress pass a so-called “assault weapons” ban similar to the one Clinton signed into law in 1994.
“How many more people have to die before we reinstate the assault weapons ban & the limit on high-capacity magazines & pass universal background checks? After they passed in 1994, there was a big drop in mass shooting deaths. When the ban expired, they rose again. We must act now,” Clinton tweeted.
That law had a 10-year sunset clause that expired in 2004 and Congress let it lapse in 2004 after it was proven to be a failure.
But it wasn’t just pro-gun Americans and conservative lawmakers that judged the so-called “assault weapons” ban to be a flop.
The failing New York Times – which hates guns and wants to see the government ban and confiscate guns – was forced to admit that banning so-called “assault weapons” was ineffectual.
Reporter Lois Beckett wrote, “But in the 10 years since the previous ban lapsed, even gun control advocates acknowledge a larger truth: The law that barred the sale of assault weapons from 1994 to 2004 made little difference.”
More Americans are killed each year by hands, fists or feet than rifles.
The ban didn’t even succeed in preventing mass shootings.
This is clearly false so it's incredible Clinton would even tweet this except for the fact that he thinks no one will check.

The massacre at Columbine High School – which many Americans believe the resulting press coverage which gave the killers the fame they desires is the real cause of mass shootings – occurred in 1999 when so-called “assault weapons” were banned.
However, the so-called “assault weapons ban” did change America in one sense.
In November 1994, Americans were fed up with Clinton’s anti-gun agenda and threw the Democrats out of power in the House.
For the first time since 1948, there would be a Republican Majority in the House of Representatives.
Democrats had run the House for so long that pundits, Democrats and even many Republicans believed there was no path for a GOP takeover.
The Democrats’ dominance in the House ended when Clinton marched the party over a cliff by banning guns and convincing voters in the South and Midwest that Democrats no longer respected their cultural values.
If Democrats follow Clinton’s lie from 1994 that the so-called “assault weapons” ban worked, 2020 will be a repeat of the 1994 red wave.
