Clinton to outline gun control plan during Monday campaign stops

Democratic presidential candidate Clinton waits to speak to supporters at the Human Rights Campaign in WashingtonBy Amanda Becker MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will outline specific steps she would take to curb gun violence if elected during scheduled campaign stops in New Hampshire on Monday. Clinton spoke out forcefully in favor of new gun control measures after a shooting last week on the campus of Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, which killed nine people and wounded another nine. In appearances after the shooting, Clinton 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, but she has still to say what specific measures she would take if elected to the White House in November 2016.
