State AG Races Matter To Gun Owners, the Abuser & Anti Gunner Keith Ellison Example

Main Stream Media Making Excuses for Keith Ellison

Minnesota – -(AmmoLand.com)- Recently state attorneys general have been in the news. When Defense Distributed won a settlement from the State Department that would have allowed the publication of certain files, a number of state attorneys general filed suit to block that publication. They got their injunction – never mind that a settlement had already been reached allowing for it.

One high-profile AG race is in Minnesota. The big reason for this high profile is because Representative Keith Ellison, the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is one of the candidates, and he’s been in the news for alegedly abusing his girl friend. [but Dems do not believe her…]

What you may not know is that Ellison has a horrific record on the Second Amendment. He has been hostile down the line. According to Project Vote Smart, there are a host of lowlights: He opposed passage of concealed carry reciprocity. He’s supported the walkouts demanding, among other things, semi-auto bans and “universal background checks.” But Ellison didn’t stop there, a line which even Dianne Feinstein did not cross – at least out in public. Feinstein at least purports to support hunters and sportsmen. Ellison didn’t. He opposed the SHARE Act in 2016, which was intended to promote shooting sports, including hunting.

His hostility towards law-abiding gun owners is such that when it came to prohibiting the importation of legally-taken trophies, he voted yes. Ellison also voted against an amendment to further protect law-abiding citizens who were traveling with their unloaded firearms by allowing them to collect attorney’s fees in certain cases. He was a no vote on the final passage of that bill, which was not acted on by the Senate. Still, this is notable, and something Second Amendment supporters should remember. His hostility is not as notorious as that of Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein, but it is as real as that of Jerrold Nadler.

Look, debates over concealed carry, background checks, handguns, and AR-15s are one thing. The misuse of some firearms has tragic consequences, and it is completely understandable that people want to prevent tragedies, even when their proposals are completely misguided.

But opposing legislation for hunters, sportsmen, and to even fail to address situations where travelers trying to do the right thing get prosecuted in states that don’t respect Second Amendment rights is beyond the pale.

Ellison’s votes didn’t catch much attention. He didn’t even speak in the debate on the SHARE Act. But those votes speak volumes all by themselves. It’s beyond a hostility towards our right to protect ourselves and our families – it’s a hostility towards owning any firearm for any reason whatsoever. This will translate to many actions Ellison could take as attorney general.

Thankfully, there is an alternative that Second Amendment supporters can vote for in the election. Republican Doug Wardlow is also running for Attorney General of Minnesota. Wardlow’s campaign site doesn’t say much on Second Amendment issues. While the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund has not endorsed him, in several election alerts for other offices, he is listed as a candidate worth supporting.

Wardlow would certainly put a big speed bump in Ellison’s career. More importantly, he could make the Second Amendment rights of Minnesotans – and all Americans – a lot more secure.

    1. I learned all I need to ever now about Ellison when he was preparing to be sworn in as a lawmaker. He rejected God’s Word for his swearing in ceremony, choosing instead that pile of satanic verses that is antithetical to all that is good and decent. He explained he wanted to use Thomas Jefferson’s personal copy of that volume, and lied to us as wo WHY Mr. Jefferson came into possession of it.
      Knowing THAT volume and its lies is the basis for his political aspirations, we needn’t consider him further. He will, of necessity, support and promote shariah law, which is antithetical to our COnstitution, and taquiyya, a pracstice whereby people of his stripe justify lying (such as what he told us about why Jefferson had that copy of the verses upon which he swore) if it promotes their ulitmate goal, which is total subjugation of all.

      Do Minnesota REALLY want their head law enforcement official to be someone who bases his life, values, actionis, on propositioins such as these?

      1. @Tio, Minneapolis runs the state because of Minneapolis’ voter population density. And they vote democrat because of voter population density.

    2. I can only guess that he supported the ‘lady’ that brought out the false claim against Cavanaugh. But, like most dimocrats, that doesn’t apply to them. Any one that brings accusations and medical records against a black muslim democrat to court can not be believed. But if you bring up a completely unsubstantiated claim against a republican from 36 years ago, you must accept it as the gospel.

      Yeah, that works.

    3. If Ellison gets elected he will make the entire state a sanctuary state plus he will do everything he can against the second amendment, bad choice for Minnesota and America.

    4. Unfortunately, he’s the leading candidate for AG right now. Almost like MN voters have their fingers in their ears going “la-la-la-la-la” and refusing to understand what they are buying into.

      He’s been pretty much bullet proof as a candidate…a member of the Commiecrat machine with access to their money, supported by the leftist press, and represents a mostly Somali-American Muslim district.

      He’s anti-gun, anti-borders, very arrogant, and for Sharia law. Marches with BLM and the Antifa crowd and against cops. Just the guy you want (not) for your head law enforcement officer.

      Sad, so very sad that the good folks of Minnesota would even think about someone like this as AG, let alone him being a serious candidate.

    5. “he’s been in the news for alegedly abusing his girl friend. [but Dems do not believe her…”

      It is a article of faith for the Left to Believe even if it’s delusional,fact less and lacking any semblance of truth,except when it comes to their door step, what’s the term that’s commonly used,Oh yes Hypocrite.
