Condoleeza Rice on The View: My Father Used Guns to Repel KKK

Condoleeza Rice on The View: My Father Used Guns to Repel KKK

“And I’m sure if Bull Connor had known where those guns were he would have rounded them up.”

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reminded the ladies on The View of the importance of the Second Amendment. Her father and neighbors used guns to protect themselves against the KKK and racists while growing up in the deep south. From The Blaze:

“I was a little girl growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the late fifties, early sixties,” she explained. “There was no way that Bull Connor and the Birmingham Police were going to protect you.”

“And so when White Knight Riders would come through our neighborhood,” she said, “my father and his friends would take their guns and they’d go to the head of the neighborhood, it’s a little cul-de-sac and they would fire in the air, if anybody came through.”

“I don’t think they actually ever hit anybody,” she continued. “But they protected the neighborhood. And I’m sure if Bull Connor had known where those guns were he would have rounded them up.”

“And so, I don’t favor some things like gun registration,” she said to a suddenly silent crowd.

“That said, it’s time to have a national conversation about how we can deal with the problems we have. It’s not going to be any single fix to the terrible events at Parkland,” she concluded.

Mic. Drop.

Rice then goes onto to stress that the authorities missed a lot of warning signs with Nikolas Cruz, who murdered 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. The FBI and police received numerous tips. The local authorities received over 40 phone calls on disturbances with Cruz and his brother. If they did his job then Cruz would not have been able to legally buy the guns.

Meghan McCain also reminded everyone that NO NRA MEMBER has committed the mass murders and shootings in the U.S. Yet, everyone still rails against the NRA and NRA members.

The 19-year-old school shooter who killed 17 in Florida on Valentine’s Day had 150 rounds of ammunition in 10-round magazines. Larger ones would not fit in his bag, Fla. state senator Lauren Book revealed.

    And one bullet from a good guy would have stopped him.

    What was he trying to fit them into, a teabag?

    A 10-round AR mag is 3.62″ tall. The early 20 round M-16 mag is 4.75″. The 30 round military mag introduced circa 1967 is 7.12″. Some modern 30 rounders may be a half inch longer; I don’t have a new one to measure.

    A paperback book is 7″ tall.

    So he wasn’t using “high capacity magazines” at all.

    10 and 15 round magazines for my Beretta 92-FS are… exactly the same size.

    Now we need bag control.

    Lauren Book was incorrect. School shooter Cruz had only 5 round magazines for his AR-15, although he did have quite a few. In at least one cell phone video of the shooting, taken from inside a barricaded classrooom, you can clearly hear 5 rounds being fired steadily (but not really that fast), a pause, then 5 more rounds, a pause…etc as Cruz fired 5 and reloaded. Book’s father, infamous Florida lobbyist Ron Book, has been accused to bribing public officials, defrauding an insurance company over a car theft claim, and is generally a fixer in Dade County and Tallahassee. Ron Book spent a million dollars on daughter Lauren’s first wedding, which also was part of a TV reality show (The marriage lasted 2 years). Lauren Book is Democrat political royalty in Florida.

It’s as if these events are scripted to drive public opinion about the Second Amendment or something.

    Soros’ 18 billion dollars at work.

    This is one of the biggest stories of the past 100 years – a greater threat to the nation than any war since the Civil War: it will ferment the worst sort of sedition in our nation for many years to come – if our nation lasts as a result if it:

    How Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) recruits suicide bombers, according to a Navy SEAL and senior chief in the book The Sheriff of Ramadi:

    “Those SOBs go out and recruit kids to do this. Our interrogators were able to get the whole story (from captured AQI recruits). One of them had been sexually abused as a young boy and was told the only way he could reclaim his family honor was to die for Allah in this manner. The senior AQI leaders – the foreigners – won’t do this themselves. They get others to do it. They prey upon kids, young boys and girls who are insecure or have some psychological disorder. Some of them have severe learning disabilities…”

    Think about that.

Another example of a family living under the fear perpetrated by the military wing of the democrat party — the KKK.

Check out the look on Rice’s face. She’s letting her hosts know that is would be unwise to gainsay her!

Condi could also have reminded them that Bull Connor was a member of the DNC.

Wait a minute — a woman is invoking facts, history and personal anecdotal experience to demonstrate that law-abiding Americans from all backgrounds use firearms to protect themselves and their families?

I love it. That said, it’s unfortunate that no amount of rational evidence in support of the Second Amendment will ever sway Leftist zealots, for whom the Second Amendment represents an alleged anachronistic vestige of a bygone era. We’re dealing with such histrionic and infantile fanatics that no amount of statistical evidence regarding the hundreds of thousands of DGU’s (defensive gun uses) involving law-abiding citizens that occur each year will ever change their minds.

I’ll also add — Condi Rice is a simply amazing woman. Contrast her seriousness, her perspective and her intellect, with the shrill, grandstanding demagoguery and self-promoting antics of Dumb-o-crat harridans and scolds, such as the miserable Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi.

The GOP is extremely lucky to have her in its camp.

Cruz may have wanted to carry his AR in his gym bag with the magazine inserted in the mag well. Perhaps he couldn’t do this with a 30-rd mag.

Hate to splash a little cold water on this… but she stated at CPAC that civilians should not have military style firearms and supports the “assault weapons” ban. I hope that someone will be able to point out to her that what her father’s firearm did to the Klan is needed to keep in check government that can conspire to murder people for political gain (Fast and Furious) and run roughshod over Constitutional rights.

Whadaya bet she doesn’t get invited back?

This lady should be our 1st female president.

Too bad she does not want the job.
