she made some accusations regard bernie sanders' stance on the issue.. "he voted for what we call the charleston loophole. he voted for immunity from gun maker's and sellers, which the nra said was the most important piece of gun legislation in 20 years." our team at politifact did some research --- and dubbed that accusation "true". sanders did flip-flop his stance on "liability exclusions" for gunmakers and sellers. in 2005 sanders voted for a measure that provided broad liability exclusions. after months of defending the vote, his position started to evolve in october 2015. three months ago -- he said he would "take another look" at the liability question. and on saturday, his campaign said he would support changes. that sounded like a flip-flop to our poltifact team -- so we rated clinton's statement as "true". in that same back-and-forth debate about gun control, hillary clinton shot criticisms at bernie sanders...
the "charleston loophole": "he voted for what we call the charleston loophole. he voted for immunity from gun maker's and sellers, which the nra said was the most important piece of gun legislation in 20 years." on that point -- politifact gives hillary a "mostly true" rating. bernie sanders actually voted against federally mandated waiting periods... not for a provision that sets a time limit on a background check. sanders' votes don't line up exactly as clinton presented them... but because sanders did vote against waiting periods for background checks... we rate the claim "mostly true". back at home, one of the stars of abc's hit show scandal was in town campaigning today. tony goldwyn, who plays president... fitzgerald grant... on the hit series ...was stummping for democratic presidential frontrunner hillary clinton. today's event was held at state senator kelvin atkinson's house in north las vegas. goldwyn has been throwing his support behind clinton throughout the state, appearing
