Colion Noir isn’t afraid to take on any issue, head on. That’s why it should be no surprise that we see a new NRA Commentator video from Noir today, on Martin Luther King Jr Day.

Noir points out that despite the fact that Dr. King preached non-violent resistance, he did apply for a gun permit after his home was firebombed.

Dr. King understood that the right to self defense, like all inherent rights, is a right that should be available to anyone.

When Dr. King wasn’t able to get a permit to carry a gun himself, he surrounded himself with people who did carry guns.

Noir also touches on the racist history of gun control laws. Many of the earliest gun control laws in the United States were created to prevent freed slaves from owning firearms.

Anti-gunners like to conveniently gloss over the racist history of gun control laws when pushing for new ones.

Some people might point to Dr. King’s assassination as a reason for further regulating guns, however, that would go directly against Dr. King’s wishes that EVERYONE have and enjoy more freedoms, including the freedom to defend one’s self and family.

Keep attacking the hard issues Colion!
