Will Dems Pick Gun Hater As DNC Chair?

posted on December 5, 2016

As NRA-ILA pointed out in a weekend update, gun-banners in the Democratic party apparently haven’t learned anything from the devastating loss of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race.

In fact, it appears that Democrats are on the verge of electing Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.—an avowed opponent of rights for law-abiding gun owners—to Chair the Democratic National Committee. Ellison has made clear that he believes the Democratic Party should not only pursue a litany of severe gun control measures, but that the party should also directly attack the Second Amendment.

During an appearance on the March 21, 2014, episode of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher challenged Ellison on the Second Amendment, asking, “Then why doesn’t your party come out against the Second Amendment? It’s the problem.”

“I sure wish they would,” Ellison replied. “I sure wish we would.”
