In a pre-taped interview that aired on Fox News Sunday this morning Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sat down to chat with FNS host Chris Wallace to discuss hot topics in Congress, including gun control and mental health. During the interview Pelosi made a glaring error that provides some insight into her view on the issue–or rather just how wrong she has it.
“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, in their jobs, where ever… in their workplace. For recreation, for hunting and the rest. So we’re not questioning that they do that,” Pelosi inarticulately told Wallace.
Someone should probably let Pelosi know that the right to “keep and bear arms” is included in the Second Amendment. The First Amendment deals with free speech.
What might be worse, however, is the fact the Wallace didn’t correct the egregious error.
