Watch Hillary Clinton hit Bernie Sanders hard on gun control

In the first Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas, Hillary Clinton went after Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont on the issue of gun control. When asked if Sanders, a moderate on gun control, was tough enough on the issue, Clinton quickly responded, "No, not at all," adding, "I think we have to look at the fact that we lose 90 people a day to gun violence." The crowd responded with a strong round of applause.

Attacking Sanders from the left came on the heels of Clinton defending her progressive credentials, in which she said, "I'm a progressive, but I'm a progressive who gets things done."
