Muslim/Democrat Lawmaker Wants Democratic Party to Stand Against 2nd Amendment

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 2.24.44 PM

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) expressed to the audience of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher that he hopes the Democratic Party come outs, not just in favor of more gun control, but against the 2nd Amendment itself. This is merely the latest episode of an elected official pulling back the curtain on the extreme contempt with which some politicians view the Second Amendment.

The exchange took place during a lengthy discussion on gun control between Maher and his three guests. After lamenting that the Democratic Party was not anti-gun enough, Maher asked Ellison, “Then why doesn’t your party come out against the Second Amendment? It’s the Problem.” Ellison responded by stating, “I sure wish they would. I sure wish they would.”

It’s unfortunate that Maher and Ellison perpetuate the inaccurate idea that members of one of the two major political parties have – or should be expected to have- a uniform view opposing gun rights and the Second Amendment. This is not the current reality, nor has it ever been the case. NRA continually works with and endorses elected officials on both sides of the aisle. Respect for the right to keep and bear arms is not a Democrat or Republican issue; it is an issue of individual liberty versus government control that garners support from a diverse group of Americans, independent of their political views on other topics.

Regardless of this, Ellison is right in that the politicians of his party who are in opposition to the Second Amendment should be forthright with the American public. However, if Ellison were aware of how profoundly unpopular such a stance would be, he might have second thoughts.

Even the most committed gun control advocates hide their contempt for the Second Amendment with highly orchestrated messaging campaigns; and for good reason. A January 30, 2014, Gallup poll reported that out of those asked, “Would you like to see gun laws in this country made more strict, less strict, or remain as they are?” only 31 percent opted for stricter gun laws. Further, when it comes to the Second Amendment itself, Americans are unambiguously in favor of the individual right to keep and bear arms. In a poll preceding the Supreme Court’s landmark Heller decision, Gallup asked, “Do you believe the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the rights of Americans to own guns, or do you believe it only guarantees members of state militias such as the National Guard units the right to own guns?” Seventy-three percent of those polled endorsed the individual right interpretation.

With polls like these, gun owners should not expect any surge in the honesty of anti-gun politicians.

    What saddens me is that this traitor was elected as a US Senator. Perhaps his state will vote him out of office next time.

    • Vita

      Except he wasn’t elected a US Senator. Mr. Ellison is a member of the US House.

      • mcrognale

        You are right. My mistake. I was reading another article on a senator and then this one so I had “senator” on the brain. I have corrected the post. Thanks for your help.

    • SuperDave2

      Sadder still, is the fact that he’s a muslim and as a muslim, wants all Christians dead!

  • Aaron Gwinn

    How about this his ass can get out of this Country . Go live with the rest of his Muslim brothers

    • haveittodayray

      Yes indeed right on. read this and pass along. http://wp.me/p2GpDB-cF

    • Rosie46

      Actually, take the rest of his Muslim brothers with him. We are being flooded by Muslims, thanks to Obama, and one has to ask, “how many terrorists are being trained in their compounds and camps?”

  • thetroll01

    You remember all those Somalians from Minneapolis who went back to Somalia and joined Al’Shabaab? Yup, his district.

  • Kandee McCormack

    Clearly he has no clue as to how difficult it is to amend the constitution.

  • Eric Brazau

    We can question How he got elected? The Muslim population in his state is 16%. The voter turn out for Congressional elections is about 30%. American democracy will be subverted because Americans on mass do not participate in democracy. No one to blame but your apathy.

    • haveittodayray

      I agree. America is sleeping. Read this. http://wp.me/p2GpDB-cF

        Nothing there. 404 error

        Nothing there 404 error

  • bob deschenes

    Wonder how many throats he’s slit growing up. Why would any one vote and elected a muslim in the first pace.

    • Clint

      Because of politicians who call Islam, the religion of peace. It is the religion of submission of everyone in the world, to Islam.

    • haveittodayray

      Needs to be thrown out of office. http://wp.me/p2GpDB-cF

  • Michael Le Clear

    here’s where we are being duped, the national guard is formed of professional soldiers, it is NOT the militia. read article 1 section 8 and article 2 section 1 of the U.S. constitution, then read the 2nd amendment again. the militia has pretty much gone away here in the U.S. this is why this “debate” even exits. by not keeping the state sanctioned militia’s strong we have allowed this to happen. and by putting all the attention on the 2nd amendment, which like everything else was not meant to stand alone, they cloud the real issue. we have no real civil defense. now how do we get it back? that’s the question we need to answer.

    • Capt Parker

      Try reading USC Title 10 as concerns the “unorganized militia” … the “unorganized militia” is, WE THE PEOPLE.

      As long as one, single, free man or woman holds a weapon …. the militia is still there ….. the militia is the whole of the people.

      • Michael Le Clear

        that is a very good point, thank you for the reference.

  • Wayne Ogilvy

    I have a better idea ! How about all of us non pedophile, non women rapists, non jihadi murderers, Just say no to islam and sharia law and ship all of you perverts back to your country you fled from to have a better life. We don’t need you worthless bastards in America !!

  • Had the framers not banned Christian tests in Article 6, a practicing Muslim would not be a Congressman in the first place.

    The Second Amendment is part of the Constitution and part of the very documents that authorize the existence of our nation.
    Any actions against the Constitution, attempting to undo the Constitution, or any part thereof – such as the Second Amendment – is an act of war against this nation.
    Mr. Ellison has committed High Treason and is a now recognized enemy of our nation who is attempting to destroy the very foundation and existence of our nation – as such, his life is forfeit for his crimes against this nation.
    Any Free Citizen of this nation SHOULD have the right to shoot him on sight for his crimes – unfortunately, I don’t thing that would happen since even the other members of Congress will do nothing to stop the crimes of Ellison, Obama, or Holder.

    • haveittodayray

      I agree with you. Re post this please. http://wp.me/p2GpDB-cF

    • Dave

      Isn’t ANY amendment to the Constitution….in effect an action against the standing Constitution? So….according to your logic….the original Constitution should and could NEVER have been ‘amended’ at all. I am not taking a side on the issue of the 2nd amendment, but I feel your logic is flawed, and hypocritical. We ALWAYS should be looking at possible ‘amendments’ and comparing the spirit of the constitution to ever changing tech and situations that just plain didn’t exist years ago. Ex: our founding fathers didn’t have to decide WHICH guns were ok…..there weren’t automatic rifles back then… So…it makes sense to re-visit and determine if the CURRENT situation demands reforms. And our country was founded due to freedom FROM religious persecution (among other things)….isn’t it odd that people now will persecute others based solely on their religion ( the US is NOT a Christian country…it is just a country.) and ostracizing them for exercising their freedom of choice/speech…..even though they were democratically elected in our free country. People tend to love our ‘free’ country….as long as others don’t have a different opinion. Anyone who DOES exercise the freedoms this country was founded on…seems to be branded the villian.

  • HongryHawg

    This muslim jagoff has raised his ugly mug before against America and the Constitution. He is emblematic of the snakes that crawl under the doors and infiltrate our political system.

  • gilward

    How can the once proud American state of Minnesota go down the tubes and elect perverts like ellison? ellison lives in the US because he is free to do all he can to help obama destroy our country. Isn’t farrakhan from the same state?? He is another scum of the earth.

    • Rebelwoc

      Farracoon is from Illinois, lives in Chicago. You’re thinking of Al Franken another loser.

    • haveittodayray

      I agree. Spread this word. http://wp.me/p2GpDB-cF

  • haveittodayray

    He should be removed from office. Wake up America. http://wp.me/p2GpDB-cF

  • Ron

    what would expect from a muslim/democrat—what a combination-I’ll bet he is a great favorite of obama and his muslim leanings

  • Destry

    Ellison’s reason for opposing the 2nd Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms it protects is motivated by the fact that he’s a muslim and if the right of America’s to be able to have guns is abrogated, it would expedite the isalmic goal of establishing a world wide caliphate and place the governance of the USA under sharia law.

  • Charles Scappaticci

    Of course Muslims don’t need guns, they like to behead Christians, Jews, and atheists with knives.

  • anestat

    Lawmakers take an oath to protect and support the constitution. So they are being TREASONUS by not supporting the 2 nd amendment.

  • junkmailbin

    once stripped of gun rights, Mulah Ellison ‘s home boys can take out the AK 47 that they were supplied with by Al Queda, Iran, and Libya. The subjugation and spread of Islam can then be launched

  • David Lenord

    Mulah Ellison can go shove it up his Muslim posterior.

  • saber4mike .

    He was raised Catholic and converted to Islam. Disarm the populace and you’re in control. This guy is another loser…

  • Donald Ingram

    I cannot believe the state that he is from voted him into office. No wonder nothing gets done in congress. Representatives like him are so busy trying to take away our rights, they forget about doing the peoples business.

  • yennikcm

    Lord knows the muzz doesnt want armed resistance.

  • TexRancher

    What worries a lot of us is that there are enough idiots out there to elect this TRAITOR!

    Would they still vote for him if they knew he’s a full blown SOCIALIST? He’s one of 70 avowed Communist members of Congress! Check it out: Ellison is a member of DSA! (Democrat Socialists of AMERICA)

    How can American citizens vote for people like him who are determined to take away they Constitutional Rights? I guess they can if they are intentionally STUPID!

  • Kent2012

    well keithy, settle back and enjoy a BLT and a cold Bud…..life is short, hopefully yours is real short…..
