Maybe she thinks she needs to destroy the constitution to save it?
Pelosi held a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee hearing on “Gun Violence Prevention: A Call to Action,” where she endorsed the gun control proposals President Barack Obama unveiled today.
“Earlier this month, shortly after Newtown, all members of Congress took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the American people,” Pelosi said. “To protect and defend. That is our first responsibility.”
Presumably, Ms. Pelosi believes that the only way to “protect and defend” the constitution is to dig it up root and branch. If so, kudos to her for the great energy with which she has gone about her task, on this and so many other issues.
