House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) confuses the first amendment and the second amendment in an interview with Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday today.
HOUSE MINORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI: I think that you took one piece of it. We're talking about no further sales of assault weapons. What is the justification for an assault weapon? No further sales of those, no further sales of the increased capacity, 30 rounds in a gun. We're re talking about background checks which is very popular, even among gun owners, and, hunters.

I wonder how many of our elected officials could pass the US citizen test. How many care?
What if Bush said that?
What? The Lame Stream Media don’t hold liberals to the same standard?
We avow the First Amendment. We stand with that and say that people have a right to have a gun to protect themselves in their homes and their jobs, where, and that they — and the workplace and that they, for recreation and hunting and the rest.
I hope Nanzi was sitting down when she said that cause
she shouldn’t try to walk and talk at the same time.
and that they, for recreation and hunting and the rest.
Assault rifles come under “the rest” part.
Nancy doesn’t know if she’s coming or going.
She wouldn’t “avow” the First ( or the Second) Amendment if it bit her on her considerable a$$!
It always amazes me when elected officials twist the very document that allows them to be there. You would think they would have more respect for it.
Put another way, if they don’t follow the constitution, there is no reason for them to be in elected office.
The people have a right to representatives who have an IQ over 72.
Pelosi is smarter than your average rock.
Not only did she get the amendment wrong, she misused “avow,” which means “claim.” Affirm is the word that escaped her. The blind try to lead ... I have no idea how these idiots get elected let alone re-elected. sd
DO NOT INSULT ROCKS IN THIS FASHION!
I think it’s fair that whatever the police can carry, we can carry.
Actually it’s how a lot of people actually decided on their handguns. They decided if they were good enough for their local police, or what the fbi thought was good, it would be good enough for them. And same with the ammo, they wouldn’t be a “gun nut” for using ammo hotter than what the police themselves determined to be adequate but not overkill.
But second, who is anyone in government to determine what your personal security requirements are for your self-defense? Who are they to know you don’t need a certain size magazine? These are the same people that pass laws saying you can’t sue the government for not protecting you.
Nancy has that disease when you take a dump, you pass out. Clearly this is what happened answering this question.
I wonder how many of our elected officials could pass the 4473 background check?
Those neurons are trying to fire in Nancy’s head, but all that whiskey up there blocks them like that guy in THE BLIND SIDE.
She is the ideal Democratic legislator....reliably stupid. Obama’s dream is she is again Speaker for the last two years of his clown parade.
I wonder how well Obama was vetted?
This is Huge.
In fact, hugh and seris, she has just stuned her beeber.
Pelosi has brought the 1st Amendment into the right for citizens to have guns of all types.
It's a first amendment right, now that Pelosi has brought it up, we should run with it.
My guns are an expression of free speech, she is sooooo right!
and i think it's fair that whatever the military can carry, we ought to be able to carry... and when i say this in discussion with gun control advocates, well--it drives them mad!
In a time of lawlessness, politicians are useless.
1st, 2nd, 10th, what diffence does it make?
To quote another famous confused person.
"We need background checks and mental health evaluations for politicians." --Mark Levin
You KNOW Fox has moved to the left when Pelosi appears. I’d bet they have told all the democrat pundits they’ll be easy on them.
Mr. Gary Henderson covered this exact topic at American Thinker this week. Read "If the Constitution Doesn't Matter... ."
He concludes: "If the Constitution no longer matters to the president, the Congress, or the Supreme Court, then it no longer matters. To anyone. But that's the document that creates and defines the structure and role of the federal government itself. If we have no Constitution, then we have no federal government."
Mandatory mental fitness tests to even run in a primary for Congress.
San Francisco. That says it all. Even the assumedly well-educated professionals in San Francisco vote for her religiously every two years. It helps to explain why California is on its death bed.
This Wizard of Smart also wants to pass a law to,"Keep Our Own Kids Safe," the public service promos on Rush regarding the hazards of letting our kids play soccer or KOOKS, for short!
“In a time of lawlessness, politicians are useless. “
And they’re useful when...?
lol. I needed a good laugh today. Yes sir. Very much so sir.
Obviously insane. And incontinent I fear.
My guns are an expression of free speech, she is sooooo right!
Abit funny, but I agree, if money is free speech why aren’t guns? The problem with these lefties are they don’t think through what they are saying, that always happen when they stray from their conviction or what they really believe or know. they all are chacing a goal and the end justify the method, and I think they now think the goal is in sight.
God help us all
I said it once and I say it again,Pelosi, you ignorant slut.
Auditioning to be the next Marxist VP candidate.
:) -- Sounds good to me.
Cut Nanzi Pewlosi some slack...she’s never read the Constitution...why is it expected she’d know the amendments?
