Dem Rep. Keith Ellison Wants His Party To “Come Out Against The Second Amendment”…
A Freudian slip? Probably:
MAHER: Then why doesn’t your party come out against the Second Amendment? It’s the problem.
ELLISON: I sure wish they would. I sure wish they would.
MAHER: Really? Because I never hear anybody in the Democratic party say that. But they say, ‘I am also a strong supporter.’
ELLISON: You have got to check out the progressive caucus. We have come out very strong for common-sense gun safety rules.
Of course, Ellison went with the liberal tripe of what guns should be targeted: “…crazy military-style assault weapons.” However, as I pointed out last year, supposedly “military-style assault weapons” aren’t the gun problem in America. The problem is black-on-black shootings, and the enormous number of gun deaths that are suicides.
Ellison also has a distinctly false statement. He said there are “12,000 handgun murders a year” in America. However, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), there were 11,078 “firearm homicides” in America in 2010, and certainly not all of them were done with hand guns. Perhaps Ellison, who wants “to make sure that the CDC can issue reports on gun killings and hand gun violence,” should look up his facts before voicing his opinions on gun violence.
Oh, and he says he wants his party to come out against the Second Amendment. Which means he should be kicked out of Congress for not defending the Constitution — something he swore to do in his oath of office.
