Blacks and Guns

Gun control has a racist past.  Some of the laws that still exist, like the one in North Carolina requiring a potential handgun purchaser to get the chief law enforcement officer in their locality to sign off on a permit to purchase a handgun were originally passed to make it harder for Blacks to purchase firearms.  More recently, Mike Bloomberg made comments in February regarding getting guns out of the hands of young blacks that had it been made by a conservative Republican would have been all but crucified. But because it was Bloomberg, it barely made news.
“It’s controversial but, first thing is all of your, 95 percent, 95 percent of your murders and murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take the description and Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male minorities 15 to 25. That’s true in New York, it’s true in virtually every city in America. And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed.”
NRA Commentator Colion Noir addresses such thinking in a new video titled Black People Can Think Too.  In the video, Noir states:
This race-baiting rhetoric is a disgusting attempt to take advantage of certain sensitivities. Yes, the inner cities’ young black men kill each other at an embarrassingly high rate, but instead of addressing the real issue, anti-gun politicians and the mainstream media would rather exploit the symptoms because there’s no money in the cure.
Take a look at the full video.

Update: Ater this was posted on Wednesday, Noir appeared on NRANews to talk more in depth about the video.
