DNC Vice Chair Calls for REPEAL of 2nd Amendment

Louisiana State Senator Karen Carter Peterson (Dem- New Orleans) made headlines this week when she tweeted: “Repeal the Second Amendment”

So why did a State Senator’s tweet become viral? Because she is also national Vice Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee and heads up efforts to promote “civic engagement and voter participation” for the DNC.

Republican Louisiana Congressman Ralph Abraham was quick to criticize Peterson for her statement. In a series of social media responses Abraham said: “I was shocked to see such a radical idea of stripping away Second Amendment rights coming from the chairman of the state Democratic Party … When somebody suggests we eliminate a Constitutional right I stand up and take notice.”

“I think it’s a reflection of the overall philosophy of the Democrats and that it could be the first salvo on a planned attack on other Constitutional Rights.”

Stephen Handwerk, Louisiana Democratic Party Executive Director USA Today that his state party is “a strong supporter of the Second Amendment that protects Americans rights to bear arms.” When he was asked if he stood by Petersons’ call for repealing the Second Amendment he replied, “Of course not.

High-ranking members of the Louisiana Democratic Party immediately distanced themselves from Peterson but like Louisiana Democratic Governor Edwards most Democratic legislators in the state are moderate to conservative, especially when it comes to the right to guns in the Sportsman Paradise.

In spite of the leftist mantra – “We’re not out to take your guns “the truth is that Peterson is only the latest in a long line of progressives who have suggested that repealing the Second Amendment is their true goal for America.

The latest school shooting on February 14th in Parkland, FL has brought with it the understandable flood of youth and sympathetic adults who rage that something must be done. Unfortunately, the majority of their self-appointed spokespeople have wrongfully targeted the NRA and the Second Amendment as the reason for the deaths of their friends and family members.

David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman High School, for example, has said on several news shows that the Second Amendment is responsible for making the U.S. “the world leader of mass shootings”.

But most gun-control advocates take the same tact as abortion rights advocates have for the last 40 plus years. Deny extreme measures until the atmosphere is right in Washington to get exactly what they denied wanting.

Many gun-control advocates claim they support the Second Amendment. As Russell Berman of the Atlantic said, “It’s a required preamble of sorts, a way of telling gun owners, I come in peace.”

Representative Robin Kelly, a Chicago-area Democrat of Illinois has led the charge in gun-control efforts for the Congressional Progressive Caucus. He unashamedly admits:

“I always start off and say, ‘I’m not against guns,’ so people don’t just turn you off immediately. I just feel like if you’re trying to make your point, people won’t even hear you if they think you’re against guns or you’re against the Second Amendment.”

For the time being, Karen Carter Peterson also met serious resistance from both conservative Republicans and Democrats on social media. For now, the National Democratic Party isn’t admitting they would be happy if the Second Amendment was repealed, despite what many in their party are saying publicly.

If the progressive left ever manages to unseat the aging old guard of the party and win control of the House or Senate, all bets are off though.

Igor Volsky, a deputy director at the liberal Center for American Progress said, “Our call here is to move toward a country where guns are scarce, where we have fewer guns, and where they’re dramatically harder to get,”

Like other gun-control advocates, Volsky keeps repeating that his organization has no desire to take on the Second Amendment itself—at least not yet.

“That’s a conversation the movement is going to have and the country is going to have,” admits Volsky.

The main reason there hasn’t been a serious movement to change the Second Amendment is the challenge amending the Constitution presents. There hasn’t been an amendment to make it through what is required – a two-thirds majority vote in the House and Senate and ratification by three-quarters of the 50 state – since the 27th amendment was ratified in 1992.

Peterson is vocal about her desire to see the Second Amendment repealed. Just remember that when less transparent progressives say they don’t want to take something away for you, what they really want is for you to give it away willingly.

  1. It’ll never happen-the complexities of repealing an amendment are long and complex. this woman needs a public dunking for stupidity.

    1. As has been said before, we’re but one generation away from tyranny. Complacency will only hasten it.

    2. You may think whatever you wish to think…and thank a soldier for that.
      There isn’t ONE politician that I’d trust with telling me the truth. Been shot at and hit, been run over…still don’t trust a single politician. They believe that WE owe them something. Time for term limits and doing away with the huge benefits they receive after one term. I have busted my butt all my life and now “entitled” to $1200 a month and that is now taxed as income and the “undocumented” aliens and the new “refugees” are now being handed out $3248 a month not taxed. can’t figure why I might be a little pissed ????????

  2. Let’s call to have the DNC abolished because it is anticonstitutional!! So we don’t have to overthrow it when the Dems become tyrannical. It should be explained that doing away with a right, whether guaranteed or not, is TYRANNICAL, which is the reason the 2nd was written and adopted in the first place. She needs to restudy the history of the country from 1775 to 1791, in fine detail including the debates on the Bill of Rights.

    1. If you think the DNC is unconstitutional, then so is the RNC. We conservatives and libertarians must never advocate adopting the tactics of the tyrannical Left.

  3. The 2nd amendmant was written and placed as protection for its people. I don’t believe we should get rid of it! You take away guns then it will be knives! Governments way of controlling people. I don’t own a gun, but have considered getting one to protect myself from this new kind of government that wants to control its people! I don’t want World Order Open borders!

    1. You are absolutely right. Justice Joseph Story, who was appointed to the Supreme Court by Constitution’s principal author, James Madison, wrote, “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of the rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” Palladium is more valuable than gold.

      To put it another way, without the 2nd Amendment the people would have no way of protecting the rest of the Bill of Rights against tyrants. So while the 2nd Amendment includes the right to use guns for hunting, sport, self defense, and national defense, its primary purpose as stated by many of the Framers of the Constitution was to protect the people from a tyrannical government, be it local or national.

      Jefferson wrote among other things, that we should bind the federal government with the chains of the Constitution. In order to do that he implied that the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. I hope we’re not at such a time but we must remain vigilant so as to guard the Constitution and the Republic.

  4. Gun grabbers get at least one piece from the gun, too bad for them it is only the bullet fired out of it! 🙂

  5. Leave it to the Louisiana useful idiots to want to live under a socialist dictatorship….after all they would rather vote democrat than to live free…Nothing good has every come from Louisiana…period!

    1. Ron C: I admit we do have our share of stupid idiots in Louisiana and if you ever have a chance to eat some Louisiana Cajun cooking [ AKA coon ass cooking ] I’m sure you will realize that we do have decent people in Louisiana. Have a good day.

    1. What an inane and puerile comment. You should learn how to cogently debate why the Constitution is vital to the survival of the Republic.

  6. I hope they know this will start a revolutionary war !

  7. Take your democrat ass back to where ever you came from this America youasshole

  8. Not going to ever happen ! This will be the end of the DNC. They need to worry because most of those liars, racist , child molesters , women abusers are going to jail ! Isn’t funney that all hate groups and terriost clubs like KKK , BLM , Black Panthers , are all demiturds organizations.

    1. All the groups you mentioned espouse socialism and tyranny. We should also include groups like Antifa, Resist, Aztlan, La Raza, MEChA, and even much of the Socialist Democrat Party.

  9. Peterson,did you forget the oath you took top PROTECT the CONSTITUTION against ALL enemies foreign and Domestic? YOU are the enemy!!!

    1. She had her fingers crossed when she took her oath. So maybe it would be GREAT to see her brought up on charges.

      1. What charges? Do you even have a clue as to what’s in the Constitution?

    2. Please tell this conservative constitutionalist, who in the military took the oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign AND domestic, that people, including politicians, can’t suggest changing the Constitution? How many amendments are there already? Are there any that have been repealed?

      Personally, I agree with Justice Story, appointed by Pres. Madison, that the 2nd Amendment is the palladium of rights, for without it we can’t protect the rest of the Bill of Rights against tyrants. But many on the Left have been brainwashed not to understand that or even much of the Constitution.

  10. Let me see — my guess is –this witch moron lives in a great neighborhood, house surrounded by high fences, big gates and many bodyguards with semi-auto weapons. Just my guess now because I’ve never heard of this idiot and still wish I hadn’t. My one wish is that the dnc, the whole demoTRASH party and all the libtards declare war on themselves for being brainless and ignorant.

  11. Gee, I wonder how she might feel if I said the same for the Emancipation Proclamation?

    1. Very good point. Even more important was the 13th Amendment as the Emancipation Proclamation only affected slaves in the Confederate States.

  12. Surely these traitors must know that an attack on our “God given Rights” will result in a Civil War that will take no prisoners.

  13. If a Civil War is to the liking of the Commies in the democrat party, then go ahead and attack our God given Rights, Guaranteed by the Bill of rights.

  14. How about if she got REPEALED? She has no class but is a lot of ass. Maybe that is she looks like a Jackasses so in her case, if the shoe fits……. so have a nice day Ms. Jackass 🙂

  15. They have been saying this for years but no one was listening.

  16. Cold dead hands, chicky. And I won’t be going alone.

    1. Please keep in mind what Gen. Patton said, “The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.”

  17. if you want to see the future under the liberal democrats just look to London and the mayor if not guns then knives then your tongue because you called him a fool and stupid for not dealing with the truth

  18. How can the Democrats stand there and tell lie after lie after lie. Their long term goal is to do away with the entire Constitution, including the 2nd Amendment. They want to establish a socialistic, liberal America. And as Ronald Reagan once stated, how America goes, so goes the world. Don’t let this happen to our Country. Start by getting rid of all the Democrats in office, elect Republicans who want to follow President Trumps’s agenda.

  19. Last month I bought. .357 magnum. When I came home from the gun store, I putit on the kitchen table. After a week of just lying there, I said “maybe I should load it. After another week of just lying there, I said “maybe I should load it.” A week later of watching to see if it would just shoot, I thought “maybe I should cock it.” Still nothing happened so I sent it back to the manufacturer becaust the darn thing just does not work.

    1. Lmao Jim…it does sound like you got a real “lemon” there! Guess I’ll be sending my .243 AND my .22, AND my .40, AND……dang, they just don’t make ’em like they useta’ !

  20. Moronic buffoons such as this Volsky character state “we need to just make it more difficult to acquire guns”! I believe he just dropped the end of that asinine statement….”we need to just make it more difficult to acquire guns….FOR those law abiding folks, that actually ABIDE BY THE LAW”!

  21. Political correctness and identity politics was the first attack on our Constitutional Rights.
    It appears they are going in numerical order.

  22. Karen Carter Peterson is the reason we have the second amendment, of course she wants it repealed. Louisiana needs to repeal her.

  23. The gun crisis is just another way of distracting the people from the real objective, which is to create enough crisis’ that the Christians will call for a Sunday law in the name of peace and safety.. To rest the planet one day a week, but mostly to Force morality, and Sun/Satan Worship on God’s people.. For God the Creator says to Worship Him on His holy 7th Sabbath, Saturday.. Our eternal life will be decided by “Who we worship”.. Those who don’t take the Mark of the beast, (Sunday Worship), will be persecuted as America will enforce these Catholic non-biblical Worship laws, even unto death.. A repeat of the Dark Ages is coming. A time of trouble as has never been on the Earth.. More and More storms, floods, earthquakes, fires, diseases, as the world becomes a place of destruction.. As in the days of Noah and Lot, destruction will come upon all the unsaved, only this time Jesus will come to destroy all the unsaved, but those who keep God’s commandments will be raised will all the dead saved to meet Jesus in the air, and then go to heaven where Jesus has prepared a place for His saved, at His fathers house.. All life is ended on the Earth, as it crumbles in destruction, then darkness as the sun and moon are moved out of their places,, and only Satan and his fallen angels are left on the dark cold Earth for 1000 years..

    1. It’s obvious you believe in only select parts of the New Testament. What cult do you belong to?

  24. Like I’ve always said – Don’t trust the Democrats, they are all a bunch of Lying ASSHOLES – Pelosi.

  25. We have several Amendments.
    The founding authors were organized in their thoughts. This was the SECOND MOST IMPORTANT in their plan for a democracy.
    I would suggest to that rocket scientist to move to another country and begin to appreciate what she has here. There’s no other way to drive the point home.

  26. funny how the left wants everything but is not willing to give the right anything. We give a inch in good faith and they take thousands of miles. We must except homos, dykes, and those mental cases that do not know if they are either. We must make them a homo cake, yet they DO NOT have to make us a straight cake. First they wanted to be able to be on their partners health insurance like NORMAL people, then they slame marriage down our throats. We have to have millions of dollars spent on the mentally disturbed to make bathrooms just for them…THEY WANT TO SAY WHAT EVER THEY WONT, BUT DO NOT ALLOW THE RIGHT TO COUNTER. SORRY, antifa bitches, THAT IS FASCISM, COMMUNISM, ETC. YOU HAVE BEEN BRAINED WASHED BY THE TEACHER UNIONS AND NATIONAL TEACHERS SOCIALIST PARTY HAS DESTROYED YOU…WHEN SHIT HITS THE FAN, YOU THINK PELOSI, SCHUMER, UNION OFFICIALS WILL HELP YOU, NOPE YOU ARE GOING TOO FACE MILLIONS OF COMBAT VETERANS, HUNTERS, PREPPERS, III%ERS, 2ND AMEND FOLKS….YOU ARE, AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN EXPENDABLE TO THE SOCIALIST LEFT…SUCKS BEING YOU…

  27. These liberals and Democrats are like the kids like HITLER HOGG don’t know squat. Ask the survivors of the HOLOCAUST what happens when a society gives up their guns.!!

  28. What people don’t realize is that the framers of the original Constitution were far smarter than anyone we have in government today. They put in place the entire constitutional structure to protect the PEOPLE from the GOVERNMENT. Unfortunately, over the years, we have constantly assailed their original document, to our detriment. A big da*n duh for us.

  29. I sure hope even half of you who profess to be willing to actively resist this impending tyranny by these ignorant, uninformed and disconnected radicals like this moron will be there when the time comes, and they push it all the way.

    You might think I’m an alarmist, we’ll never get to that; but after 33 years, part in the Marines and part as a federal employee with both management and law enforcement careers behind me, I truly believe it can happen. I saw it’s beginnings with the Obama era, and retired. 8 years later, it is growing. This is an example.

  30. This is part 5 of the New World Order … America’s DisArmament. This must happen before the Globalists Change America the way they want it.
    A plan led by the Banking dynasties such as the Rothschilds, Schiffs, Loebs, Warburgs, Oppenheimers etc. who own the world’s central banks including the Federal Reserve the Bank of England the European Central Bank etc they must destroy countries to achieve this as well as wreck all the great powers of the world including America. In the next world war. they are being assisted by the European aristocracy and by high level freemasonry -which is also Satanic- and though their groups like, the Council on Foreign Relations, The Bilderberg Group, The Tri-Lateral Commission,\ The Club of Rome etc which they control. Remember this quote ?
    “Ultimately, our objective is to welcome the Soviet Union back into the world order.
    Perhaps the world order of the future will truly be a family of nations.”
    –President George H.W. Bush-
