Then Maher took aim at Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and asked him why he and his colleagues aren’t just outright opposed to the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
“Why doesn’t your party come out against the Second Amendment?” Maher asked. “I never hear anybody in the Democratic Party say that. What they say is I’m also a strong supporter.”
