Pelosi: ‘We Avow the First Amendment’ Because ‘People Have a Right to a Gun’


As Nancy Pelosi appeared on Fox News Sunday with host Chris Wallace, she didn’t seem to know the difference between the First Amendment and the Second Amendment.

During her February 10 segment, Pelosi premised her conversation by pointing out that Japan has, “the most violent games and the rest and the lowest mortality from guns.” This, Pelosi imagined, was because Japan “might have good gun laws.”

The Democrat House Minority Leader then went on to tell Wallace that the First Amendment gave Americans the right to have a gun and that was a thing she and the Democrats want to “avow.”

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 talking about background checks which is very popular, even among gun owners, and, hunters.

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 ever, and that they–and their workplace–and that they, for recreation for hunting and the rest. So we’re not questioning their right to do that.

This isn’t the first time that former Speaker Pelosi showed a shocking lack of familiarity with the Constitution. Last November during a press availability session, Pelosi again couldn’t remember which Amendment she was talking about.

After a reporter asked about the then coming fiscal cliff deal, Pelosi said, “Well, I’m with the 11th Amendment, so… or is it the 11th Amendment that, uh, (laughs)? 14th is it? Whatever it is I’m with the Constitution of the United States.”

Whatever it is, indeed.
