DNC Platform Committee member Bonnie Schaefer says she does not believe “anyone should have a gun.”

She said this in a video aired by CSPAN and released on June 8.

Stephanopoulos asked the question twice and both times Clinton avoided answering it. The closest she came to answering it was when  she said, “If it is a constitutional right, then it–like every constitutional right–is subject to reasonable regulation.”
