Sanders: Clinton Should Apologize To Victims Of Iraq War

The not-going-to-go-negative campaign of Bernie Sanders has taken a decidedly negative turn in recent days.

After Hillary Clinton criticized the Vermont Senator for saying that the parents of the Sandy Hook Massacre victims should not be able to sue gun manufacturers, she said he should apologize to them.

However, according to Nancy Cordes of CBS News, Sanders said that perhaps the former Secretary of State and Senator from New York should apologize to “the victims” of the Iraq War, for which she voted.

The Hill reports:

The back-and-forth on these issues is familiar for the two candidates. Sanders has repeatedly hit Clinton over her stance on the war, while the former secretary of State often attacks Sanders’s record on gun rights.

However, the intensity with which the two are raising the issues is new and reflects the escalating tensions in the race.

In an interview with the New York Daily News this week, Sanders said that he doesn’t believe that victims of gun violence should be able to sue the company that made the gun.

“In the same sense that if you’re a gun dealer and you sell me a gun and I go out and I kill him,” Sanders said. “Do I think that that gun dealer should be sued for selling me a legal product that he misused?”

He added, “But I do believe that gun manufacturers and gun dealers should be able to be sued when they should know that guns are going into the hands of wrong people.”
