The nation's largest firearms maker is gunning for Hillary Clinton, accusing the Democratic presidential nominee of fighting "lawful commerce" in her push for more restrictions on weapons sales.

"[Clinton is] actively campaigning against the lawful commerce in arms," said Michael Fifer, chief executive officer of Sturm, Ruger, The Guardian reports.

At issue is Clinton's take on the case, District of Columbia vs. Heller, which involved security guard, Dick Heller, who was allowed to carry a gun on the job, but denied a license for it at home because of Washington's handgun ban.

In 2008, the Supreme Court overturned the ban in a 5-4 vote ruling that the Constitution allows for self-defense at home.

But this year, Clinton said the case was "wrongly decided" and that cities and states should be allowed to enact their own gun-safety laws.

"Certainly this is a unique time in our history," Fifer said during a meeting to discuss his company's earnings report.

"Because for the first time ever we have a nominee of a major political party, one with a very real likelihood of winning the presidency, overtly stating that the Supreme Court got it wrong in the Heller case and actively campaigning against the lawful commerce in arms."
