Sharpton On 2nd Amendment: ‘People Do Not Have The Right To Unregulated Rights In This Country’

Following a public policy meeting of African-American leaders, National Urban League president Marc Morial and National Action Network president Al Sharpton called for a new national assault weapons ban, saying the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution should be regulated.

“The Constitution and the Bill of Rights are not absolute. One cannot yell fire in a crowded theater and hide behind the First Amendment,” said Morial when asked by TheDC if he supports California Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein’s assault weapon ban bill.

“And we absolutely think that the idea of banning a military style assault weapon, a weapon that I am confident that Thomas Jefferson and James Madison never laid their eyes on, is not inconsistent with the rights of those who self-protect, those who shoot, who want to participate in sporting and hunting,”

“No one has been more aggressive in our defense of the Constitution than this nation’s civil rights leaders. …We respect the Second Amendment,” Morial added. “None of these provisions speak in absolute terms.”

TheDC asked Rev. Sharpton if he agreed with Morial’s comments.

“Absolutely, I mean if you look at the Second Amendment it was that you would have militia to protect yourself in case the government came and attacked citizens,” he responded.

“First of all, if the government were to come to disarm you, you would not be able to use an automatic weapon to defend yourself. Let’s be serious. We’re in a world of drones now so the Second Amendment would not help you in that area. It is absurd to try to cite that.”

“People do not have the right to unregulated rights in this country,” Sharpton continued. “And I think that for those that use the Second Amendment [they] are conceding that they have no argument on why you need a magazine with 100 rounds of ammunition or 30 rounds of ammunition.”

Sharpton also said “everybody is regulated with every right,” using airports as an example.

A military style, semi auto, is not on par with the military all ready.

Al Sharpton: After Gun Control, We May Have To Deal With Knife ...

Jan 2, 2013 ... Al Sharpton we may have to consider knife control. On his radio show ... I wonder
if his armed bodyguards had been present during this show.

Why stop at Knives?  If your hands have no legitimate Government use, Just as well may have to start restricting ownership of them also, by this Mental Midgets logic.

Regulated Rights, Interesting oxymoron!

Nothing to see here, move along, move along. I don't know anyone, black or white (and I know plenty of both) who would argue that Al has all his oars in the water. The man is a loud talker, not a deep thinker.

I suppose some people do find slavery more palatable than freedom.

Will someone educate those guys about the 14th amendment, and ask why they are not pissed off about that!? Hmmm your automatic weapons if you have em won't help if the government comes at you with drones .. Was that a threat?!
