Louis Farrakhan believes ordinary Americans may be preparing for a violent insurrection against the federal government, and that the Second Amendment has outlived its purpose.
"Look at the American peoples' thoughts about Congress. What is the percentage of the American people that feel that the U.S. Congress is doing a good job? Eleven percent. Then 89 percent of the American people are angry, disaffected, dissatisfied with their government Â— and you're selling them weapons of war and the militias are multiplying," the 78-year-old leader of the National of Islam remarked during a recent sermon.
Of course, Louis Farrakhan agrees with the Democrats on gun control. He simply despises America, and he makes no bones about it. But, Loopy Louie is way off the mark, when he implies that ordinary people are gearing up for violence against their government. There is absolutely no evidence of that.
Actually, the reason people are acquiring lots of firearms right now is because their Second Amendment rights are under siege. Farrakhan also said there is little use for privately owned firearms in contemporary society. But, what Farrakhan fails to comprehend is that the statistics are indisputable. The zip codes with the highest rates of violence are also the places with the tightest firearms laws. More guns equals less crime.
