Ann Coulter: Blacks should buy guns and join the NRA

Coulter, in her usual insightful style, wrote a column in which she suggested that Blacks, in the wake of the Martin/Zimmerman incident, arm themselves.

Her take is if the Left leaning media are correct, and Martin was stalked and murdered solely because of his race, that all Blacks should arm themselves and join the NRA. It was her way of turning the debate against the Left and their call for more gun control and the negation of the "Stand your ground" laws. If their argument is correct, she states, then they would be placing Blacks in further danger.

She notes that the first gun control laws, all the way back to the 1600's, stated that all Blacks, whether slave or freeman, were debarred the possession of firearms. She also cited the rise of firearms ownership by Blacks in areas controlled by the KKK which saw the reduction of the influence of the Klan. She also noted that Martin Luther King Jr. was denied a firearms permit after his house was firebombed simply because he was black.

She was on O'Reilly and the link to that video is below.

Gun Control: The premise that a woman found in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is morally superior to allowing that same woman to defend her life with a firearm.
