Washington DC - -(  During an March 23rd 2014 appearance on Real Time With Bill Maher Representative Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said it’s okay to have shotguns “but get rid of them crazy military-style assault weapons.”

It’s as if Ellison doesn’t know the difference between a civilian AR-15, which is simply a semi-automatic rifle, and a military or police-issue M4–which is a fully automatic rifle on a AR-15 platform.

During the interview Maher pressed Ellison on gun control, telling him Democrats were “not different enough” from the Republican Party when it comes to guns. Ellison said the Democrats were different, yet contended that they “don’t…have to eliminate ownership of all guns in order to get some common sense gun rules.” 

But “them military-style assault weapons” have got to go.

Ellison also criticized the “12,000 handgun murders each year.” The actual annual number on handgun murders for a recent year was 6,220 in 2011–almost 50 percent less than the figure Ellison cited.

    1. I disagree! Protect the 2nd ammendment instead of taking it away

    2. Just another pathological liar with a (D) after his name.

      Let’s “get rid of them” anti-American socialist traitors that can’t or won’t understand and OBEY their Oaths.

    3. Representative Keith Ellison is a practicing Muslim and has no obligation under the Koran to keep his oath of office or to speak the truth to ‘infidels’ or to act in their best interest. He has no integrity as we understand the term and has no business representing the State of Minnesota.

      These people just keep coming out of the woodwork and they’ve all got (D) after their names.

    5. To paraphrase Mr. Ellison, next election let’s start to “Get Rid of Them Crazy Democrat-Style Politicians”.

    6. DEMACRATS – the family brain washes the children into the liberal way is the only way – no mater what the name is on the ballot and they are on the RAT ticket you give them your vote

      years ago a starch DEMOCRAT uncle would vote only straight RAT ticket

      i said it the DEMOCRATS ran a chimpanzee for president you would vote for the chimp – they have and the MONKEY won twice


    7. All anyone needs to know about Ellison is that he is a ” taqqiyya ” practicing MUSLIM .
