The Daily Surge has a clip of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) on Bill Maher’s HBO show. Ellison says the Democratic Party should just be honest about its stance on guns.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), a guest on Maher’s panel pushed back saying, “You have got to check out the progressive caucus. We have come out very strong for common-sense gun safety rules. I mean, 27 children were mowed down. Isn’t that enough for us? One of our colleagues, [former Congresswoman] Gabby Giffords, shot in the face.”

For some reason, Americans murdered by drug cartel members along the border never came up. Neither did the victims of Chicago’s gang violence.

“Common-sense gun safety is bullsh*t,” Maher shouted. “Why doesn’t your party come out against the Second Amendment? It’s the problem, ” he added.

“I sure wish they would. I sure wish they would,” Ellison hollered in response.

Most Republicans wish Democrats would come out in full opposition to the Second Amendment, too.

Lemme see. What are the words in that oath he took?
One more sun blinding example of exactly why it is a natural part of the freeman's constitution to keep and bear arms; Keith Ellison, traitor.

"Ellison says the Democratic [sic] Party should just be honest about its stance on guns."

LOL! That's a good one, Rep. Ellison - a real knee-slapper & the best I've heard in a long time! The Democrat Party should be honest! Good luck with that!

Well, they have come out against the first. So why not the second since they don't abide by either one. In fact, their boss pretty much ignores the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and cherry picks the law.

Please, raise your hand if you don't think Democrats and most Republicans have come out in full opposition to the Second Amendment. Anyone?

There are a lot of Democrats in red states that know such an action would lead to their being voted out of office. Even JFK was a life member of the NRA. Most Republicans, but not all, support the second amendment. I do think coming out against it would be grounds for impeachment since they take an oath of office to support it.

You realize if they do it, Barack the Sun King will just sign an EO making all privately-held guns illegal.

Unlikely.

Even Obama isn't that stupid. If he had that kind of authority, or thought he could get away with it, he already would have tried.

Ellison wouldn't recognize honesty if it called him by one of his past pseudonyms.

It's not the Second Amendment they're against. It's not even the whole Bill of Rights they're against, as an obscure Illinois state senator said in 2001: " the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf,"

They aren't unAmerican, they are actively anti-American, against our founding ideals.

If the Democrats honestly admitted that they oppose the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights, I would have more respect for them. I'd still consider them misguided authoritarians, but at least, honest ones.

But they continue to lie about their motives, and describe their anti-Bill of Rights rhetoric as "common-sense" when it is anything but.
