Joy Behar Predicts Gun Laws Will Change ‘Once Black People Get Guns’

#Joy #Behar #Predicts #Gun #Laws #Change #Black #People #Guns

Co-host of “The View,” Joy Behar, suggested gun laws will only change in this country “once black people get guns.”

The comments came during a segment on the gun control legislation being debated in Congress.

Guest host Lindsey Granger told a story about a black man who had witnessed a home invasion at a neighbor’s house in Connecticut which prompted him to build his own AR-15.

Behar interjected and blindly declared, “Here’s the thing, once black people get guns in this country, the gun laws will change. Trust me.”

It’s difficult to ascertain what is more asinine about this comment – the wild misinformation that black people don’t own guns or the racist implication that armed blacks would be so scary that it would cause a national uprising.

Joy Behar: Black People Don’t Own Guns

Recent statistics and demographics don’t back up Joy Behar’s insinuation that black people don’t own guns or, at least, don’t own enough to sway gun laws in America.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), a trade organization, “customers of all demographic backgrounds” are part of a recent surge in gun sales.

“The highest overall firearm sales increase comes from Black men and women who show a 58.2 percent increase in purchases during the first six months of 2020 versus the same period last year,” they wrote in a report at the time.

Odd that Congress didn’t see that report and immediately implement new gun control legislation.

In a follow-up report, the NSSF said those holding “stereotypes on American gun ownership” are “just wrong.”

“Today’s gun buyer looks more like the rest of America.”

Surely such knowledge would prompt racist Republicans to abolish the Second Amendment rather than defending it as they have, as Joy insinuated?

Know Your History

Sunny Hostin chimed in and defended Behar by apparently citing an incident from over 55 years ago.

“That’s what happened with the Black Panthers,” Hostin said. “Know your history.”

Indeed, the Mulford Act was a 1967 California bill that prohibited the public carrying of loaded firearms without a permit.

The bill was in response to armed members of the Black Panther Party who were conducting armed patrols of Oakland neighborhoods. It was signed into law by Governor Ronald Reagan.

Hostin’s reference to the Mulford Act is an inadvertent reminder that gun control in America – championed by Democrats – has a history of being racially motivated.

In his book ‘Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America,’ UCLA law professor Adam Winkler writes, “Few people realize it, but the Ku Klux Klan began as a gun-control organization.”

“After the Civil War, the Klan and other violent racist groups sought to reaffirm white supremacy, which required confiscating the guns blacks had obtained for the first time during the conflict,” he wrote.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice once shared a story in which her father and their neighbors used guns as a means to protect their community from Klan racists.

“Let me tell you why I’m a defender of the Second Amendment,” Rice said. “I was a little girl growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the late fifties, early sixties. There was no way that Bull Connor and the Birmingham Police were going to protect you.”

“And so when White Knight Riders would come through our neighborhood,” she continued, “my father and his friends would take their guns and they’d go to the head of the neighborhood, it’s a little cul-de-sac and they would fire in the air, if anybody came through.”

Any idea where she told that story? She told that to Behar, Hostin, and the other ladies of “The View.”

Exclusive: January 6th Documentary Film Producer Under Armed Protection Due To Trump Supporter Threats – TalkOfNews.com

Alex Holder under armed protection

#January #6th #Documentary #Film #Producer #Armed #Protection #Due #Trump #Supporter #Threats

Alex Holder, the director of the documentary film “Unprecedented,” now needs armed guards to protect him.

As the stakes continue to rise with each Select Committee hearing and more and more jaw-dropping evidence of criminality hones in closer to Trump and his family, the danger to all involved increases. There are unhinged people in all segments of society. But the people threatened by these hearings are the same people who gathered up weapons to follow a man who assaulted his own Secret Service agents precisely because he demanded that he lead that armed insurgency. It feels as though violence has been authorized from the top and from the beginning.

We know that the film contains evidence the Committee deems critical. Now, that filmmaker, a man who make a film Trump authorized and then participated in, is in need of protection. According to The Daily Beast:

The documentary filmmaker who filmed with Donald Trump and his family in the months before and after the attack on the Capitol says he now needs armed protection.

Alex Holder, who testified to the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection last week, spoke candidly about the risks his disclosures have put him in during a BBC TV interview Wednesday.

When asked if he felt threatened because of the evidence he’s given to the panel, Holder said: “Well, my life changed about a week ago and I now literally have two armed guards outside this studio right now that follow me around everywhere.”

It is only going to get worse until the evidence is out. Many people believe that Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony was moved up specifically to lessen the threat to her. Now that her testimony is public record, threats won’t stop anything. They could be used as a warning to future witnesses.

The film provides direct evidence of Trump’s activities in the days leading up to January 6th but the fact that Holder needs protection now is also evidence that the Committee is getting very close to the truth and the truth is likely much worse than we guessed.

#Republicans #Run #Truth

Karl Rove: “The baseless claim that the 2020 election was stolen doesn’t appeal to independents, whose votes in key states are often decisive…”

“A big enough red tide could sweep some of these nominees into office. But if Republicans who don’t rail about election fraud consistently run better than those who do, it would suggest that emphasizing the ‘big steal’ may not be such a great argument for 2024.”

“For any GOP candidate, there’s no easy way to escape weighing in on whether 2020 was stolen. Democrats will force Republicans running for other offices to declare their position on these outlandish and corrosive claims. GOP hopefuls better begin preparing responses now. They should consider starting with the truth.”

Exclusive: Florida judge rules state's 15-week abortion ban 'unconstitutional,' will move to block law – TalkOfNews.com

HB 5, which bans abortions after 15 weeks, will temporarily go into effect while the court prepares to block it. Planned Parenthood also plans to do what it can to block any stays the state of Florida seeks.

The Leon County Court in Florida has indicated it intends to block a law banning abortions after 15 weeks. Planned Parenthood’s case against the state was heard before Judge John C. Cooper earlier this week. The judge indicated he’d issue a ruling on Thursday and, true to his word, he made his decision. Cooper called HB 5 “unconstitutional,” saying it violates the “fundamental right to privacy,” which is laid out in Florida’s constitution. Per Section 23 of that document: “Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into the person’s private life except as otherwise provided herein. This section shall not be construed to limit the public’s right of access to public records and meetings as provided by law.”

Cooper said the state failed to prove why HB 5 should take effect in the first place and is ready to sign an injunction against it. In the meantime, the law is expected to temporarily take effect. Planned Parenthood said it is seeking to make sure any stays sought by the state don’t go through. For now, this is great news for the organization, which called it “only a first step in fighting this dangerous abortion ban … We are grateful this court recognized that it is an unconstitutional intrusion on our patients’ and providers’ medical decisions,” Stephanie Fraim, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, said in a statement. “Once this ban is blocked, Florida abortion providers will be able to offer patients who decide to have an abortion the care they need here at home. Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida will continue to stand with all abortion providers and the patients who turn to them.”
