The New York Daily News endorsed Hillary Clinton Tuesday in the Democratic presidential primary, arguing that it can't support her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., due to his opposition to legislation what would make gun manufactures liable for mass shootings.

"Sanders' ideological purity has found a boundary in political convenience. He roundly and repeatedly denounces corporate America for destroying the fabric of America, yet, representing a Second Amendment-friendly state, he voted to grant the gun industry near total immunity from lawsuits," the newspaper's editorial board wrote.

When it's not busy lampooning billionaire businessman Donald Trump, the Daily News dedicates a great deal of ink and front page space to attacking the Second Amendment, and the National Rifle Association.

The gun issue aside, the Daily News' editorial board argued that the most important issue facing Americans today is the economy. To that end, Clinton is far better suited to address these issues than Sanders, a professed socialist.

"At this severe breakpoint, the central challenge confronting the next President is clear: She or he must ignite and rebalance the United States economy in favor of the many while also extending an extra helping hand to ease burdens that have grown too heavy for some," they wrote.

Clinton, they added, is a "superprepared warrior realist." Sanders meanwhile is a, "fantasist who's at passionate war with reality."

"By choosing Clinton, Empire State Dems would powerfully signal that the party has gotten real about achieving long-sought goals. Clinton is unsparingly clear-eyed about what's wrong with America while holding firm to what's right with America," they wrote. "She fully understands the toll that adverse economic forces have taken on the country."

"She is supremely knowledgeable about the powers a President can wield to lift fortunes in need of lifting," they added. "She possesses the strength and the shrewdness to confront the tough politics of advancing an ambitious Democratic agenda in the White House."

In short, she is more capable, more experienced and more realistic about tackling the issues facing America, they reasoned.

"Clinton's proposals are shaped for the world in which we live, not the world in which we might wish to live. By any stretch of the imagination — except that of Sanders — they stand as the highflying progressive wish list of a results-driven candidate," they wrote. "Head to head exclusively on those terms — which are the fundamental terms of their debate — the former First Lady, senator and secretary of state promises to be a true Democratic champion."

The Daily News' support is the second notable endorsement that Clinton has secured ahead of the Empire State's Democratic primary, which is on April 14. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed earlier this month.
