National Review’s C.W. Cooke wrote an editorial for the New York Times in which he recognized the historical reality that gun control laws have been primarily aimed at disarming African-Americans at the behest of politically empowered whites. He also urged the NRA to extend outreach to African-Americans and urged African-Americans to exercise their 2A rights.
“Have these gun nuts no shame? Invoking MLK to keep the flow of weapons in the streets unabated? Really.”
“Just what we need, a white guy advocating weapons for people who have suffered more than enough.”
“What we do know with as close to certainty as we can get is that in Stand Your Ground states, Black men carrying a weapon will be pre-emptively murdered.”
“The 2nd Amendment is only for the self professed militia against an imaginary, US Government gone rogue especially now that we have our biracial President. NRA, Republicans, gun-owners, have’nt I got that right?”
And, because the leftwing nutjobs are absolutely obsessed with it, there are a number of comments about Cliven Bundy. The image of a citizen standing up to Obama’s Totalitarian Government drives them ape-nuts.
Jeff adds: A leftie recently brought up Bundy in GP’s comments, too. Fun times!
