Gun Appreciation Day Leader: If Blacks Had Guns, They Would Not Have Been Slaves



Larry Ward, chairman of the national Gun Appreciation Day gun rights advocates have planned for the weekend of President Obama's second inauguration, told CNN Friday that there never would have been slaves in America if black people had guns.

"I think Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree with me if he were alive today that if African Americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history," Ward said.

1. That's an insane opinion

Is that really the best they can come up with?

4. I'm sorry...he's so dumb that I'm actually laughing

But this is really how crazy all the gun nuts are. They're all like this.

It's been very useful to scratch the surface of gun nuttery these last few weeks and see just how fucked up all the gun nuts really are. These are the fucking jerks who want to have a "reasonable conversation."

7. "..if African Americans had been given the right to-----"

Except that the very presence of African Americans "from day one" was a violation of their rights. But, but.. What a dumbass.

11. Huh?

That doesn't make any sense at all. They were kidnapped and forced to be slaves. Does he think the kidnappers would have given them guns?

It's just crazy talk.

13. KamaAina's Law

modeled on Godwin's Law.

If you say "I think Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree with me if he were alive today...", you lose the argument.
