Despite Video, Rep. Ellison Says He Didn’t Say What He Did Say About 2A

posted on February 24, 2017

On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was adamant that he never stated he wished his party would oppose the Second Amendment. “I didn’t say that,” he protested.

Unfortunately for Ellison, that is exactly what he said. On a 2014 episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Ellison and Maher were discussing firearms when they had this exchange

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.

Now, though, Ellison is trying to walk those comments back. During a Democratic Leadership Debate on CNN this week, Ellison claimed “That was not an accurate statement.” 

Once again though, his past betrays him. Beginning in 2003 with his rejection of Right-to-Carry in Minnesota, Ellison has had a long political history littered with opposition to Second Amendment issues and support of strict gun control restrictions and gun bans.
