Skip to comments.Sharpton on 2nd Amendment: ‘People do not have the right to unregulated rights in this country’

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 Feinsteins 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 Morials 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. Lets be serious. Were 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.
One .22LR is a lot cheaper.
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?
Simple; That places him well above the average of his targeted audience.
FU you, Al Sharpton, you evil PONS...
FU you, Al Sharpton, you evil PONS...
I told you all that democrats want to take away all our individual rights and freedom. that is their goal , and to give all power over us to government. All democrats want this. this is called socialism
Great idea, Al! Lets start by “regulating” the rights provided by the thirteenth amendment. How’s that work for ya?
Tell that to the Syrians fighting Assad.
"That right Rev Al is about as sharp as a bowling ball."
Tell that to the Taliban, Iraqis, Chechen rebels, Vietnamese, Mexican cartels, the MILF in the Philippines and dozens of others.
Hey Sharpton! What part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand?
"A well regulated militia,
being necessary to the security of a free state,the right of the people to keep and bear arms,
shall not be infringed."
Guess how much a small 40”x1”x1mm piece of metal that downed a Concorde cost.....
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.
That’s right, I forgot. The Red Coats were just slack-jawed misfits impressed into the Royal Navy for their cooking and cleaning skills.
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
