Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama schemed to exploit the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut for political gain.

Obama plotted to use the horrific events to ram a national gun registration scheme through Congress — and Hillary has exploited the victims as campaign props.

But pundits were shocked when the results from the Connecticut primary rolled in and the vote totals from Newtown were officially tallied.

Breitbart News reports Donald Trump, who has taken a pro-Second Amendment position on the campaign trail, won more votes from Newtown in the Republican primary than Hillary Clinton did in the Democrat primary:

During Connecticut’s April 26th primaries, pro-gun Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump received more votes in Newtown than anti-gun Hillary Clinton.

Newtown, where Sandy Hook Elementary School is located, became the epicenter of the gun control movement following Adam Lanza’s heinous December 2012 attack on the school.

According to the Newtown Patch, pro-gun Trump received “1,564 votes” from Newtown voters, while anti-gun Clinton received “1,362 votes.”

Hillary has made gun control a centerpiece of her campaign.

And she’s gone even further than Barack Obama by making positive comments about confiscating firearms.

Breitbart News reports:

“You know, Australia’s a good example, Canada’s a good example, [and] the UK’s a good example. Why? Because each of them had mass killings. Australia had a huge mass killing about 20 or 25 years ago. Canada did as well, so did the UK. In reaction, they passed much stricter gun laws. In the Australian example, as I recall, that was a buyback program. The Australian government, as part of trying to clamp down on the availability of weapons, offered a good price for buying hundreds of thousands of guns and basically clamped down going forward, in terms of having more of a background check approach — more of a permitting approach.”

She recently tweeted out a video where she used the victims of the Newtown tragedy as political props  in an effort to prove she is the biggest gun-grabber running for president.

Hillary and the Democrats have tried to make gun control a key campaign issue before.

In the 2014 midterms, Democrats who voted for Obama’s national gun registration scheme and campaigned on the bill were routed from office.

Democrats wrote that off to a midterm electorate that favors conservatives.

Liberals believe if they campaign strongly on the gun issue it will mobilize the base of voters that they claim only turn out for presidential elections.

But at ground zero for one of the worst shooting tragedies in our nation’s history, more voters turned out for Donald Trump, who has defended gun rights during the campaign, than for Hillary Clinton.

Is this a preview of things to come?
