An actor, whom I once admired and who shall now remain nameless, has opened his mouth and opined that our Second Amendment is meant to keep slaves oppressed.
Not sure how “…the right of The People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” can possibly be interpreted to anything other than what it says.
Obviously, there’s a substantial Reality Distortion Field in and around Hollywood that’s causing people to see things completely the wrong way.
Methinks he’d do well to jump over and read Massad Ayoob’s latest (also spotted here). Particularly this part:
Dr. King kept guns in his home to protect himself and his family. After firebombing and numerous death threats by racists, his application for a permit to carry a gun was denied by the “may issue” white power structure in that time and place. Let the holiday that celebrates this man’s life include some reflection on the importance of the Second Amendment.
We must recognize Dr. King’s commitment for equal rights for all people by exercising our rights.
