Bill Maher claims that their is a racial component to supporting the 2nd Amendment. He started by quoting the New York Times. “Because [Garry Wills] says the Second Amendment “shows just how far the poison of slavery pervaded the Constitution. It was intended to protect slaveholders who used militias to keep a firm grip on their slaves. It wasn’t meant to let individuals prevent federal tyranny,” he said.
“How could it? It was meant to guarantee the legality of well-regulated militias to handle the states’ internal problems, especially the problem of a large slave population,” he said.
“I know it drives Republicans crazy when liberals say everything is about race and everything isn’t about race. But I feel like guns is the one area where, if you can’t see a giant difference between the way black and white are treated in America with guns, I think there’s a little racism in you,” he said.
“I mean, show the Roy Moore video. Here’s a politician waving a gun at a rally. Could you get away with doing that? There you go,” said Maher, thinking he just made a point.
“And the Vegas shooter himself, you know, it seems like when the shooter — if he was Muslim, certainly it would have been about, ‘Let’s — we got to get the ban going.’ If he was a Mexican, it would be about the wall. And I feel like, when it’s the white guy, it’s like, ‘We don’t know how this happened.’” said Maher. Check out the video below.
