Toure demands gun bans on everyone because of violence in black communities.

This is a garbage argument based on the fact that gun violence is dominant in poor areas where blacks are the majority. That's a fact, but to demand gun bans because the violence in those areas is prevalent will does the exact opposite of sympathy unless you are a liberal white person.

In an editorial segment on Friday’s The Cycle, Touré detailed the epidemic of gun violence in minority communities, particularly among African-Americans. He linked the high rate of gun violence among blacks to the broad support for gun control in the black community, as well as the fact that 83 percent of African-Americans tell pollsters that they do not own a gun while almost a majority of whites do admit to owning a firearm.

“Perhaps we know Wayne LaPierre is wrong about good guys, and bad guys, and guns,” Touré said of the black community. “I’m sure many of us find him hard to trust given his obvious use of racial demonization to spread fear that will lead to buying guns.”

Touré mocked LaPierre for demonizing a fictional but crime-ridden place called “South Brooklyn.”

“I think it’s safe to say that when he says that, much of the country envisions a place clogged with black people,” Touré said.

“Now, if Adam Lanza had walked into a black public school in this mythical South Brooklyn, or in the South Side of Chicago, we would probably not be having a sustained, national conversation about guns,” Touré declared.

So the logic here is all people should have their guns taken away because gun violence is the norm in some areas where Blacks are the majority living in poor areas of the country. Toure doesn't care to demand action on the lack of values, morals and social decay in these areas or the presence of gangs, drug dealers and other assorted criminals. Nope because in Toure world, everyone who do follow the law should be punished. That is the simple and easy way for the people like Toure because addressing the root causes of violence in certain communities would require uncomfortable truths as I state above to be said aloud.

  1. Wait, is he calling for gun bans for black people?

    I guess I should expect it, since that is where gun control started anyways (banning guns from negros in reconstruction south, bans on "niggertown saturday night specials", etc.)
