Former Secretary of State Condolleezza Rice shocked the women of The View on Thursday by defending the 2nd Amendment on Thursday. She told them guns rights protected black Americans from racists. Rice said:
Let me tell you why I’m a defender of the Second Amendment. I was a little girl growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the late fifties, early sixties. 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, 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. 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.
What she said is true. The women on The View couldn’t pivot away from this point quickly enough, but it was all facts.

A special shame on U shout out to Condoleezza Rice for her statement "I don't understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons."
