“Banning people and things because of the way they look went out a long time ago. But here they are again. The color of a gun. The way it looks. It’s just bad politics.”
Marion Hammer, former president of the National Rifle Association speaking out against an effort by congressional lawmakers to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, comparing such action to discriminating against people “because of the way they look.”
She is right, you know. It is just too convenient to blame guns for gun violence, especially when most guns are black and we all know what happened to black people here not too long ago. Martin Luther King., Jr., if he was alive today, would totally side with the NRA as he too understands the plight one faces because of one’s color – just like guns.
