Signaling that it plans a major anti-Clinton push in the upcoming presidential election year, the National Rifle Association on Thursday released a video showing Hillary Clinton laughing at "resolutions" to read the Constitution and understand firearm ownership.

The video, produced by the NRA's lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action, concludes with it's own message: "We have resolutions for 2016, too."

It is the first in what the NRA said will be a series of videos "devoted to exposing the hypocrisy of the gun control agenda. This one pokes fun at Hillary Clinton's ignorance of firearm issues and the Second Amendment."

The video shows a desk cluttered with $1,000 bills featuring the face of ardent anti-gunner Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor, and a woman writing out her New Year's resolutions on Hillary Clinton Campaign letterhead.

New Year's Resolutions of the Rich and Anti-Gun. (Actually, just Hillary Clinton)

  1. Stop trying to ban guns.

  2. Read the Constitution.

  3. Meet an actual gun owner. In person!

Then it shows the woman drawing a huge X through the list while laughing.

The NRA, in a fact sheet, noted:

-- Clinton wants to bring back her husband's failed ban on assault weapons.

-- Clinton wants so-called universal background checks.

-- Clinton is open to Australian-style gun confiscation.
