In Tonight's DNC Chair Debate, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) Denied That He Said That He Wished The Democrat Party Would Come Out Against The Second Amendment In A 2014 Interview With Bill Maher. CNN'S DANA BASH: "Thank you Secretary Perez. Congressman Ellison, I want to get to another issue that's important to democrats. Guys, I'm asking a question of Congressman Ellison, thank you so much. Congressman, gun control. In 2014 you told Bill Maher you wished the Democratic Party would come out against the Second Amendment. How do you reach out to Americans who support gun rights when you don't support the Second Amendment?" REP. KEITH ELLISON (D-MN): "First of all, let me tell you, I remember that show very well and not what I said at all. What I talked about is grandfather's shotgun and fact I'm a turkey hunter, and I didn't say that, that was not an accurate statement" (CNN, Democratic Leadership Debate , 2/22/17)
