Hillary Clinton repeatedly has said she’s not here “to take your guns away,” but her campaign platform would go a long way toward stopping Americans from being able to buy some of the most popular firearms on the market.

The former first lady is walking a fine line on guns as she tries to peel away independents and some Republicans from Donald Trump while also painting herself as a gun control champion. On the campaign trail Mrs. Clinton frequently calls for new gun safety measures as she reassures law-abiding Americans their firearms won’t be targeted under her would-be administration.

On several fronts, however, it’s clear a Clinton administration would result in much tougher gun laws, including some that would affect Americans with no criminal records. And critics such as Mr. Trump and powerful gun rights groups fear Mrs. Clinton would reshape the Supreme Court by appointing justices much more hostile to Second Amendment freedoms.

While many Democrats long have been labeled as anti-gun, firearms advocates say Mrs. Clinton’s position is especially disingenuous.

“This is an outright and outrageous lie that [Mrs. Clinton] doesn’t want to take people’s guns,” said Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Hillary Clinton has made a career of restricting citizens’ Second Amendment rights and trying to ban, outright ban, entire classes of firearms. And if that’s not taking guns then I don’t know what is. All you have to do is pay a little bit of attention.”
