Most of us already know that certain lawmakers wish the 2nd amendment would just be eradicated from our constitution. But rarely do you hear them actually say it for fear of committing political suicide.
But during a Bill Maher interview, Rep. Keith Ellison (D) decided to admit that he wishes the democrats would just come out against the 2nd amendment entirely. Of course then he tries to back pedal by saying he really just wants “common sense gun safety rules”. But the admission is really that these gun safety rules are the equivalent of trampling on the 2nd amendment and doing away with the freedom to bear arms as we know it.
Here is some of the transcript of the interview:
MAHER: 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.
Before those comments Ellison excused the rational for strict gun control laws by using the Sandy Hook shootings. And then he went on to say that 12,000 gun deaths are due to handguns every year. So what is the representative trying to ban here? He claims he wants to get rid of “assault weapons” (aka common semi-automatic rifles) in order to stop gun violence but then uses a made-up “fact” about gun violence by handguns?
What accidentally slipped out is not just that Ellison wants to eradicate the 2nd amendment but that he also wants handguns to be treated the same as his imaginary “assault weapons”.
We will overlook the fact that Ellison calls a magazine a “clip”. But we can’t overlook that Ellison forgets to mention that most of these handgun deaths are taking place in cities with some of the strictest gun control in the nation.
Ok, ok, I lied. We can’t overlook that Ellison called it a 30-round clip, because this really underscores that fact that most anti-gunners who claim to understand guns and shoots guns and own guns, actually have little knowledge about the basic functions of guns. In fact, most gun control laws are signed by individuals who have no understanding on guns whatsoever.
The truth of the matter is when you hear a democrat talk about common sense gun reform or common sense gun control laws, what they are really saying is what Keith Ellison said in this interview: “I wish we could just do away with the 2nd amendment.”
