ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says establishing "common sense gun safety measures" is front and center in her campaign. During a campaign stop in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania on Friday (April 22), Clinton said "we can have common sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment- in fact everything I've said about comprehensive background checks, a big majority of Americans support and a big majority of responsible gun owners support." But Clinton said you must first stand up to a bully, quoting her father. Clinton has said she wants to begin a "national movement" to counter the influence of the National Rife Association, the nation's top gun-rights advocacy group The Former Secretary of State has called to make the background check system more comprehensive and to keep "military-style assault weapons" off streets by pledging to repeal a 2005 law that she says gives gun manufacturers and dealers "immunity." Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reiterates her pledge for "common sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment" during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania.
