Sharpton on 2nd Amendment: ‘People do not have the right to unregulated rights in this country’
The Daily Caller ^ | January 27, 2013 | Nicholas Ballasy. senior video reporter

Posted on 01/27/2013 11:22:40 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Following a public policy meeting of African-American leaders, National Urban League president Marc Morial and National Action Network president Al Sharpton called for a new national assault weapons ban, saying the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution should be regulated.

“The Constitution and the Bill of Rights are not absolute. One cannot yell fire in a crowded theater and hide behind the First Amendment,” said Morial when asked by TheDC if he supports California Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein’s assault weapon ban bill.

“And we absolutely think that the idea of banning a military style assault weapon, a weapon that I am confident that Thomas Jefferson and James Madison never laid their eyes on, is not inconsistent with the rights of those who self-protect, those who shoot, who want to participate in sporting and hunting,”

TheDC asked Rev. Sharpton if he agreed with Morial’s comments.

“Absolutely, I mean if you look at the Second Amendment it was that you would have militia to protect yourself in case the government came and attacked citizens,” he responded.

“First of all, if the government were to come to disarm you, you would not be able to use an automatic weapon to defend yourself. Let’s be serious. We’re in a world of drones now so the Second Amendment would not help you in that area. It is absurd to try to cite that.”

“People do not have the right to unregulated rights in this country,” Sharpton continued....

Umm. Yeah you do have the rights to unregulated rights. That’s why those rights are attributed as having been given by God and not man.

So this son of a bit** is threatening us with US military drone attacks while simultaneously arguing that our forefathers would agree that we have no need of so called military style “assault rifles”. FUAS. Why don’t you worry about HS drop out rates, unwed mothers, unemployment, drug use, and gang violence in Harlem Al and leave the law abiding, tax paying, productive members of society alone?

Yes, indeed, it’s an utterly ridiculous argument that the American Revolution itself stands in defiance of. A handful of Colonists armed with various and sundry rifles and muskets in various states of age and condition, with uncertain and precariously guarded supplies of powder and a scant assortment of cannon took on the most powerful organized military in the world as well as their hired professional Hessian mercenaries.

I sympathise, but this creation myth is getting increasingly absurd. The British didn't even have light infantry training until 1803.

Al Sharpton is the epitome of Black Racism and Hatred

Gun Control, to most Blacks and Liberals, is the Disarming of White Folks. Plain and Simple

They already know Gun Control does not disarm Blacks...anyone looking at the crime rates and incarceration rates of Blacks knows this.

Al Sharpton, and his ilk, want to Lynch Whitey

We should send Rev. Al to Afghanistan to tell them that they're up against drones now, so they might as well just lay down their arms and give up.

Al Sharpton’s exercise of his First Amendment rights has gotten more people killed (Freddie’s Fashion Mart) than the guns legally owned by 99.9997% of US gun owners.

“People do not have the right to unregulated rights in this country,” Sharpton continued....

So Al - you're OK with requiring a voter ID, since “People do not have the right to unregulated rights in this country,” correct?

It wouldn't do any good to lecture Mr. Sharpton (I refuse to call him Reverend and insult real men of God) about intellectual consistency - he wouldn't understand the concept.

You are more right than you know. There is a latent fear in much of the black community that the non blacks will burn them out.

Sharpton and others have fed this myth for years.

Al, you are exactly the kind of opportunistic power hungry {expletive} the founding fathers had in mind when they wrote the bill of rights. The bill of rights is there, thank God, to protect us from people like you.

Unlike the Afghanis, we’re already over here, where the drone operators, their families, the drone operation stations, and the drone manufacturers are located.

I’m sure, if necessary, their use could be “discouraged.”

Tell that to the Afghanis.

Give me 200 million armed civilians and they can have drones, and we'll see who wins.

First, most of our 1.5 million military will not fight their friends and relatives.

Next, those remaining -- those brown shirts -- must eat, must walk, must shop, must roam about...

Every trip they would be in the sights of a dozen or more rifles at any given moment.

LOS ANGELES, January 27, 2013 — Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) referred to the National Rifle Association as “venal” during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union wth Candy Crowely.

“The NRA is venal. They come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you,” she said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “They did this in ‘93, and they intend to continue it.”

Feinstein claims the NRA, any by default its members, are the biggest “stumbling block” when it comes to passing her broad gaun.

Sharpton is just the loudmouthed beacon used to draw the media. That question is better put to one of the other attendees, Marc Morial.

If anyone has any questions about what the National Urban League is, just remember that Marc was the home-city darling of ACORN, and that the door in D.C. was opened wide for Marc when he left the mayor's office in New Orleans.

Yep, "community organizing" at the national planning level.

Here’s the “logic” that I saw him using:

The police state has become so powerful in the age of drones that it is pointless to resist, so there is no reason for you to maintain the means to resist.

Why because the white democratic crooks promote the dimmest bulb black politicians so they are not threatened. They did it in Chicago, they went after the compentant black man who was running for mayor, but to throw a sop to the black political establishment they put two literally crazy black women into the race. Lets say one day Sharpton goes off the plantation, that will be the day the NYTs lets us know that sharpton is sympathetic to the black violent racist Zebra cult.
