Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton addressed gun violence at a town hall in New Hampshire on Friday, rallying against the NRA and calling for sensible gun ownership.

The town hall opened with an emotional speech from a Keene local who almost lost her life to a gunshot wound. Clinton focused her speech on making sure that guns don't get into the hands of people who should not have them or do not know how to use them.
