Rep. Brooks: The Democrats' Long-Term Goal is to Repeal the 2nd Amendment

Commenting on the push by liberals for more and more gun control laws, House Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said that liberal Democrats in Congress exploit gun violence to incrementally place more limits on the Second Amendment, "vote after vote," with the long-term goal being the repeal of the Second Amendment. 

In a Sept. 5 interview on WVNN's The Jeff Poor Show in Huntsville, Ala., Rep. Brooks said, “The Democrats, Nancy Pelosi, they believe that they have a winning issue here. So they’re going to force vote after vote on ultimately repealing the Second Amendment right to bear arms."

"Now, they’re smart enough not to do it all at once," said the congressman. "What they will do is attack the right to bear arms incrementally until such time as the number of people who own arms and who believe in the Second Amendment right of self-defense -- they will be in a minority and, at that point, you can expect that the Democrats will move for an outright repeal of the Second Amendment.”

“Now, that’s a gradual thing,” he said. “It’s not going to happen overnight. In my judgment, it won’t happen this year or next year, four or five or six years from now. But the long-term strategy of the Democratic Party is to eliminate the Second Amendment right to bear arms."

He continued, "And the way that they do that is by eroding the support for the Second Amendment right to bear arms a little bit at a time until in their minds, at least, a majority of the American people are opposed to the Second Amendment. That's the long-term strategy."

"If they were to push that [repeal] openly" now, "then they're apt to lose elections," said Rep. Brooks. "So instead they're going to push it incrementally."
