Rush Limbaugh on Gun Control

Conservative Talk-show Host


Handguns enhance safety & reduce crime rates

I think Jason Whitlock is running a publicity stunt campaign. Here's what he said this morning: "My thoughts on the NRA and America's gun culture--I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don't have our best interests [at heart]."

We know that Jason was wrong when he said, "Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws." We know. We cited the stats. States that have concealed carry laws have lower murder rates, crime rates, rape rates, you name it. States with the most stringent gun control laws have the highest crime rate. So Jason, in his publicity stunt here, says that the NRA is arming the black neighborhoods, shooting each other, wiping each other out 'cause they're the new KKK, when in fact it's the NRA that is helping people defend themselves from bad guys, and there are bad guys in every neighborhood.
