Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, for some reason, appeared on The View and laid it out flat for them!
She told them that gun rights helped project Black Americans from racists… and she’s right!
“Let me tell you why I’m a defender of the Second Amendment. I was a little girl growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the late ’50s, early ’60s,” Rice said. “There was no way that Bull Connor and the Birmingham police were going to protect you.”
“So when white night riders would come through our neighborhood, my father and his friends would take their guns and they’d go to the head of the neighborhood, a little cul de sac, and fire in the air if anybody came through,” she added, saying she did not recall them ever shooting anyone.
Rice explained that the way her father and his friends protected the neighborhood depended upon law enforcement not being able to round up their guns easily.
“I’m sure if Bull Connor had known where those guns were, he would have rounded them up,” she said. “So I don’t favor some things like gun registration.”
She criticized the Parkland law enforcement for ignoring warning signs, and they did… and the crowd applauded her thoughts on this.
“Finally, let me just say, we also need to realize if you get that many tips about somebody that they’re going to cause harm, go and figure out what was going on,” she said.
Joy Behar, oddly, made a good point when speaking about how a higher age requirement wouldn’t affect mass shootings.
“Out of the 156 mass shootings between 2009 and 2016, only 11 were under 21 and many of the ones who were under 21 got those weapons from somebody who was over 21,” Behar said.
Meghan McCain brought up the fact that no National Rifle Association member has ever perpetrated a mass shooting.
“As a vocal NRA supporter and Second Amendment supporter, we feel vilified, and when President Trump says ‘take the guns first, go through due process second,’ that turns me into someone that gets very tribal and territorial because I’m not sure what he means,” McCain said.
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Behar interjected. “That’s against the law.”
