have one incredible opportunity before you
and that is to help make hillary clinton our next president. i know i'm ready. are you ready? you know there are lot of reasons why we need to do all that we can to make hillary wins. and one reason, i'm going to tell you -- tell you a few reason. one reason is that hillary clinton is the only candidate in this race who has the courage to stand up to the washington gun lobby, the record to prove it, and a plan to create an america for our kids and grandkids that is safer from gun violence.
i think a lot of you may have seen our bus over there. that's fall, gabby and i have been traveling on that bus, through ohio, and across our country, on what we call our vocal majority tour, which is urging americans to vote to stop gun violence. to vote to stop gun violence and to vote for champions, for the vocal majority who will stand up to the gun lobby. take it from gabby and take it from me, hillary clinton is the champion that we need. and donald trump -- well, he is not that champion. not even close.
donald trump talks a lot. talks a lot about -- a lot of different things. talks a lot about how the washington gun lobby supports him. but you know what you never hear? you never here donald trump talk about? he does not talk about the responsibilities that come with the right to own a gun. and the doesn't talk about the responsibility of keeping guns out of the wrong hands. and in a country like ours, with 33,000 americans being shot and killed each year, and where felons and domestic abusers can buy guns without a background check, that's really important and something hillary has been talking about for her entire career as an elected official. look, folks, i'm a gun owner.
and gabby is a gun owner. and take it from us, we don't want anybody to repeal the second amendment. we support the second amendment. and we don't want the government to take our guns. that's not what this is about. what we want, we just want a president and a congress who will do more to make sure that felons, domestic abusers and even terrorists don't have easy access to guns. and that's one reason. among many others, that gabby and i are with hillary. i love ohio. a lot of really cool astronauts come from ohio. neil armstrong, john glenn, jim lovell.
my former colleague at nasa, john glenn, served this great state incredibly well as a united states senator. he is one of my heroes. now we also have an opportunity to make sure that ted strickland has that same opportunity to be your senator. you know why? because ted strickland has the courage to do something that rob portman never has, and that's to stand up to the washington gun lobby. you know, had the opportunity of seeing our country in the united states navy as a pilot and an astronaut at nasa. and four times in my career, i
had the really cool opportunity to launch on the space shuttle from planet earth, all the way into space, and more importantly, all the way back. the more i think about this campaign, i think of it a lot like a space shuttle mission. it takes a lot of hard work by a lot of people to accomplish something really big, to meet a really important and tough goal. a team of hard-working people prepare for a really long time and then one day, it's time to light that rocket. and, folks, let me tell you something, we are getting ready for launch day. so let's work together. and all of you need -- you need
to make sure that ohio is the launch pad that puts hillary clinton and tim kaine on the trajectory towards the white house, with all the energy and speed that they need to lead our country. they need your energy. they really do. and if we do this, we can be all stronger together. now i want to introduce you to somebody who is working incredibly hard to do just that, somebody who is using her second chance as service to make our community safer, and somebody who teaches me each and every single day to deny the acceptance of failure, my wife, congresswoman, gabby giffords.
[cheering] >> thank you very much. >> gab by, gab by, gabby, gabby, gabby, gabby, gabby, gabby, gabby, gabby. >> thank you. hello, cincinnati. it's great to be here today. i'm here to talk to you about hillary clinton. hillary is us. hillary is courageous. she will fight to make our families safer. in the white house, she will --
dear friends, mark and gabby, and with all of you, because there are just eight days left in what is the most important election of our lifetime. are you ready to work hard in this election and win it? are you ready to send ted distributionland to the united states senate? -- ted strictland to the united states senate? i've known ted a long time. he is a champion for workers and families and knows that ohio needs more good jobs, with rising wages, and he is the kind of person who will actually work to get things done. breaking through the gridlock in washington. and this is important, unlike his opponent, ted strickland has never been afraid to stand up to donald trump.
i also want to thank mayor john cranley and state representative alicia reed, and all the other elect officials, including my friend, in the secretary of state from across the river in kentucky. and we are so fortunate to have two other champions for american families with us today. i am awed by the courage and commitment that both mark and gabby bring to their work to do everything they can to help save lives in america. you know, as gabby says every day when she goes out, fight, fight, fight, and fight she does. she fights to make sure that we save lives and we prevent
injuries and we do it together, to end the epidemic of gun violence that threatens our children, our fellow men and women, our country. and gabby and mark know something very important. there is a big majority of americans, including a majority of gun owners, two stand behinds' achieve common sense gun safety measures, and i am looking forward to working with them as their partner. you go through life, you go now the campaigns, their ups and downs, and my mother, who had a really difficult life, told me something that has today with me, and certainly has come in hannity in this campaign. everybody gets knocked down.
what matters is whether you get back up. and throughout this campaign, i have stayed focused on one thing. you. your lives. your families. the problems that keep you up at night. because that's really what this election is all about. it's not about the noise and the distractions. it's about what kind of country we want for our kids, and what kind of president can help get us there. i have so much that i want to do with you on behalf of cincinnati and ohio and america, and whether or not i get the chance to serve you really depends upon what happens in this election. now, earlier today, i was up at
kent state, a great university, and i told them about some of the reasons why i think it's really important to get everybody out to vote in this election, but i started by saying that, you know, there's this new e-mail story about why in the world the fbi would decide to jump into an election without evidence of any wrongdoing, with just eight days to go. that's a really good question. but i want you to know, look, i've said repeatedly, i made a mistake. i'm not making any excuses. but i will tell you this. if they want to look at some more e-mails of one of my staffers, by all means go ahead, look at them, and i know they will reach the same conclusion they reached when they looked at my e-mails last year. right? it wasn't even a close call. and i think most people have moved on.
they're looking and focused on, okay, who is going to be the next president and commander-in-chief. did any of you see the debate? any of you see the debate? well -- >> hillary, hillary, hillary, hillary, hillary, hillary. >> i got a little bit of a chance. i did stand there for four and a half hours, with donald trump, proving conclusively i have the stamina to do the job. but i did occasionally get a chance to ask people to take a look at my 30 years of public service, my plans for our country, what tim kaine and i have said we want to do, and then weigh that against my opponent. what he has done and said. i'm running against someone who
says he doesn't understand why we can't use nuclear weapons. he actually said, then why are we making them? we wants more countries to have nuclear weapons. he has mentioned japan, south korea, even saudi arabia. now, if you are hoping that he might surround himself with good people, who would stop his crazied wheres, remember this. when he was asked who he consults with on foreign policy he said he didn't need to consult because, and i quote, i have a very good brain. ...
the proven himself to be unfit and totally unqualified to be president and commander in chief. [cheering] i have to tell you it does not give me any pleasure saying that. it's not a small thing. i've watched and know a lot of the people that have run for president, both republicans and democrats and bloc, i've had my disagreements with republicans on policies or principles, but i've never doubted their fitness to serve in this office. donald trump is different and that's why there is so much at stake. he has a dark divisive issue for
america that could tear us apart. abraham lincoln understood a house divided against itself cannot stand, and that was over the greatest challenges posed by slavery and we fought a civil war but we also have to take stock of how divided we are today. the kind of division that need to be healed to bring people together. i want to bring not just democrats but republicans, independents, people for me and against me, together. [applause] i have a different vision of america. instead of dark and divisive, it is hopeful and inclusive, it is bighearted, not small minded.
it is a vision that says, and i believe with all my heart, we are stronger together. [applause] [cheering] america is great because america is good. never forget that yes we have our flaws. we are only human but what we have done over the course of history to keep widening the circle of opportunity and equality and freedom is unlike any other place in the history of the world. so, we want an america where women are respected. [applause] [cheering] where our veterans are honored,
where parents and families are supported and workers are paid fairly, and we believe in an america where marriage is a right and discrimination is wrong. an america that leads in the world iworld andworld in the lis where everyone can, every one is the place and at the american dream is big enough for anybody. the choice couldn't be more clear and the stakes couldn't be higher. when i was at kent state talking about the threats that donald trump poses to our national security, i was very struck. it was a crowd of students and i thought to myself i'm not going to give a speech because i want to talk about what this means for national security and i was introduced by a gentle man named bruce blair a former officer in
charge of the nuclear codes and keys, a launch officer. we cannot support donald trump because he should never be near the nuclear code. [applause] even the prospect of a nuclear war doesn't seem to bother him. good luck, enjoy yourselves, is what he had to say about a nuclear conflict in asia. i wonder if he even knows that a single nuclear warhead can kill millions of people. that's why dozens of retired nuclear launch officers took the unprecedented step of stating
donald trump showed, and i quote, bob have his finger on the button. when it comes to handling a crisis, we have seen in a campaign that he loses his cool at the slightest provocation. when he's got a tough question from a reporter and is challenged in a debate and sees a protester at a rally and is confronted by his own words. imagine him plunging us into a war because somebody got under his thin-skinned. i hope you will think about that when you cast your vote in this election and what it takes to lead a complicated world and whose hands you want to put the safety of our children and grandchildren.
and think about the difference between electing a president who will do nothing in a president who will tackle the epidemic of gun violence in america. 33,000 americans a year are killed by guns and thousands more are injured. an average of 90 people a day dying. here in ohio, more people are killed by guns then killed in car crashes. we have seen moviegoers gunned down in theaters, little children killed in their classroom, buying the full people murdered at bible study
and carolina and we have seen far too many african-american men and women killed by gun violence which is now the leading cause of death for young black men. and when we think about that, we think of jordan davis or trayvon martin. i've got to know their mothers who turned their morning mac into a movement. here's what i want to say. if anything else in the country was killing as many people who believe like we do in the second amendment, people who own guns and go hunting and art collectors, we would say wait a minute, this can't go on. we need comprehensive background checks to close the gun show
loophole. [applause] and we know here in ohio, a majority of gun owners support these steps for gun violence because they know we can respect the second amendment and keep our kids and communities safe at the same time. and we need to keep guns out of the hands of suspected terrorists. if you are too dangerous to fly, you are too dangerous to buy a gun, period. [applause] there is a very clear differen difference. the donald trump won't stand up to the gun lobby. he sold out to them. in fact the gun lobby is spending more on ads to get him elected more than any other group. more than $7 million in ohio alone. and in return, donald trump has
promised to repeal president obama's actions to strengthen criminal background checks. he says guns should be allowed in nightclubs that serve alcohol and he's even set on his very first day in office he would require every school in america to let people carry guns into our classrooms. [booing] how can anyone think our schools would be safer with more guns so i've stood up to the gun lobby for years which is why they are running all these ads against me and i will stand up to that as president. [cheering] i will work with gabby and mark for responsible solutions to pass commonsense reform because we have to keep guns out of the wrong hands can help save lives. i will also get up every day in the white house working my heart
out for you. whenever i can do to knock down the barriers to empower people to get the economy working for everybody not just those at the top. that's how i was raised. i was raised to believe if you work hard, and i believe in hard work, you should be able to get ahead and stay ahead in america. [applause] [cheering] and i will never quite on you. i don't care what the political or other beer years are. we are going to find a way over, under, around or through. the [cheering]
i'm not stopping now. when our opponents go low, we go high. we are not going to be distracted or not of course. we know how much this matters and everything all of you can do between now and the time the polls close is going to count. it's simple, their strategy is get women to stay home, young people to stay home and people of color to stay home. it's all part of his campaign that actually adds up to more than half of our whole population when you stop to think about it, and it goes against everything we stand for. so, if you are as upset as i am
by the campaign he has run and things he has said, insulting not just wen women but immigran, latinos, african-americans, prisoners of war, muslims, veterans, the military, the list goes on and on and it is almost impossible to understand how someone can run for president who seems not to like america as much as he does. [cheering] so you know the best way to shop to be dressed up in is by showing up with the biggest turnout in history. [cheering] we need more americans to vote and i think we have a chance to get more americans from all walks of life to vote because we are already seeing record turnout, 23 million people have
already voted and more than 1 million of them are right here in ohio. [applause] there is no doubt if we vote, we well win. if you haven't voted, please do so. get your friends, family, take people to vote with you. try to help those who might have a little problem getting their. make sure everybody you know understands early voting has begun and you can go to icanvote.com to find your nearest early voting location because make no mistake whatever issue you care about is on the ballot. maybe my name and my opponent's name that's where we stand on these issues and what we've done
in the past, what we have said we want to do in the future, that is all on the ballot. the future of our economy is at stake, our education system is at stake, fighting climate change and clean renewable energy jobs. [applause] [cheering] lgb t. equality is at stake. equal pay for women is at stake. actually, in the end, the american dream itself is at stake. [applause] so i want you to think about how you will feel november 9. happy. [cheering] i think that's the right answer.
but juxtapose, you go to bed early, maybe you were too busy to vote or maybe you didn't make calls or knock on doors. i want you to imagine you get up early and wal walled on to findt what's going on or maybe turn on the tv or radio and you hear -- [booing] i want you to really understand what that means for you and all of us because i prefer for us to be motivated by what we are for and against. [cheering] but i also think it's prudent to imagine what could happen if we don't do our part and whe went n the future somebody asks you, maybe your kids or grandkids,
what did you do when everything was on the line i want you to be able to say i voted for a better, fairer, stronger america. [cheering] lights go out and in the next eight days do everything we can to make it clear we are going after the kind of future that includes everybody. we are going to build this economy new jobs, rising wages, make college affordable and help pay down student debt. we are going to do what's will give you the best chance for your own lives and the lives of our kids and grandkids. if we build that future together, we will be able to say that we were part of making sure america's best days are still ahead of us. [cheering] and we will prove once and for
