Part of the divisive politics of the anti-gun Left is to claim that the only people who don’t like gun control are old, white men.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. It intentionally distracts Americans from the racist roots of gun control and the how Jim Crow laws were used to deprive Africa-Americans of their gun rights.
Campus Reform editor Lawrence Jones has had enough of that lie.
During a segment on the Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News, Jones boldly pro-claimed his natural rights to keep-and-bear-arms.
From The Daily Caller:
Campus Reform editor-in-chief Lawrence Jones on Wednesday sounded off about gun control activists who would try to tell him that the Second Amendment wasn’t written for him because he is black.
“If your idea — this is a sincere question, but if you are 70 years old and you’re looking back on your life and realized, hey, my ideas produced Baltimore,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked Jones. “How would you feel about yourself? Wouldn’t you feel contrite?”
“Well, you should feel real horrible,” Jones responded. “In the eyes of them, this is the Republicans’ fault, even though they have control, cities like Baltimore, Chicago — and I would admit, the cities suck. They are are in bad shape.”
Before coming to his defiant conclusion, Jones delved into the fact that taking away freedoms isn’t just a party issue.
“They won’t get away from that agenda,” he continued. “They aren’t for the community and they allow people that look like me to say that they are for the community, but they really are not. I would say the right should be cautious of the same thing. We have people that act like they are for the conservative movement. They look like me. They say they are black conservatives. But when you look at their profile, they are trying to take away liberties as well. So, it’s not a party thing. It’s about an American thing. If we are going to believe in the values that were founded in this country. Now liberals will tell me, ‘Well Lawrence, it wasn’t founded for you! Like the Second Amendment is not for you!’”
“Well guess what? The Second Amendment is mine now, and I don’t intend on giving it back to you guys.”
