Did Karl Rove call for repealing the Second Amendment?
The internet has been abuzz with the news that Karl Rove called for the repeal of the Second Amendment this morning as the only way to guarantee an end to gun violence in America but is that really what he said?
Here is the video:
He clearly stated that repealing the Second Amendment is the only way to guarantee a drastic reduction in gun violence however he did state it was not going to happen until someone had the “oomph” to repeal it. If you stop listening to the video at this point it certainly sounds as if he longs for the day someone will step up to begin the repeal process, however he continued and when he did he said he did not think it was an answer.
So the question I have is this: what was Karl Rove really saying? This comment can be interpreted in two different ways altogether. Either he meant it was not an option period or he meant it was not an option because nobody was going to step up to the plate and call for its repeal.
Which one is it? I am not sure but I do know that as an establishment lackey who has made it his goal with the formation of a Super PAC to protect establishment Republicans against any and all challenges to their power that I do not trust him at all.
Even floating the idea that repealing the Second Amendment as the answer is something I have a major problem with. I find it troubling, what do you think?
