Gun Control – ‘Former NRA President Equates Gun Laws With Racism’
‘Those looking for moderation and sensitivity in the gun control debate probably, by this point, know better than to look to the National Rifle Association’.
‘But even by the standards of what we’ve heard from the NRA recently, comments made by former NRA president Marion Hammer earlier this week stand out’.
(“banning people and things” comment comes toward end of the clip)
“And they even admit this is about banning the ugliest guns, it’s about cosmetics and it has nothing to do about how a firearm works,” host Ginny Simone said toward the end of the segment.
“Well, you know, banning people and things because of the way they look went out a long time ago,” Hammer responded. “But here they are again. The color of a gun. The way it looks. It’s just bad politics.”
