No, it’s not a parody: Olbermann says 2nd Amendment ‘does not authorize gun ownership’

Some 233 years after the U.S. Constitution was ratified, raging liberal sportscaster Keith Olbermann has finally interpreted the Second Amendment’s true meaning.

Astutely noting that the word “own” is not included in the amendment, Olbermann declared, “The 2nd Amendment does NOT authorize gun OWNERSHIP!”

Olbermann’s rant, which he shared in a video on Twitter, was prompted by Denver police arresting four people after a maid found “a bunch of guns laid out” in a hotel room on Friday. Investigators found 16 long guns, body armor, and 1,000 rounds of ammunition in the room. While there was no evidence to indicate a mass shooting event was being planned, police were reportedly concerned about another incident similar to the massacre in Las Vegas in the fall of 2017 that left 58 people dead.

The Major League Baseball All-Star Game was played Tuesday night at Coors Field in Denver, after the league’s woke commissioner aligned with the Democratic Party misinformation campaign on Georgia’s voter integrity law — the game was initially scheduled to be played in Atlanta.

Convinced a mass shooting was set to take place either way, Olbermann served up a profound question that surely had constitutional scholars across the country sitting up in awe.

“Consider again the holy Second Amendment to the Constitution and ask yourself this question: Why doesn’t the 2nd Amendment have the word ‘own’ in it? Why does it not say the right to own guns or a synonym for own?” he asked.

He then reminded viewers that the Second Amendment reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Proving you can’t get anything past him, Olbermann then said, “‘Keep and bear,’ not ‘‘own.'”

“‘Keep’ doesn’t mean ‘own’; ‘bear’ doesn’t mean ‘own,’” he added.

The muttonhead didn’t explain whose arms a person might keep and bear, if not their own.

“Our nation has been covered neck-high in this bullsh*t that the Second Amendment makes gun ownership not only legal, but sacrosanct,” he ranted, pointing out that the Constitution talks about ownership and property at length.

“But not once does it do so in the Second Amendment,” Olbermann then proclaimed. “Because the Second Amendment isn’t about gun ownership, it’s about regulation of state militia. Yet thousands of us die every year because of this bullsh*t.”

Of course, he’s pushing the same failed liberal argument that the amendment targets militias, not the people. Never mind that when the Declaration of Independence talks about our “unalienable rights,” which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it starts with the natural right to protect these virtues.

Fortunately, Olbermann has so thoroughly beclowned himself over the years that few logical people pay much attention to him, although he does provide a great source of entertainment for those who like to ridicule him.

On that note, here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
