Bill Cosby on the bandwagon to limit your Second Amendment rights

Guns make you want to shoot to win...or something like that

Bill Cosby says the debate about the killing of Trayvon Martin should be about guns NOT race

Daily Mail UK: Bill Cosby says the debate over the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, should be focused on guns, not race.
In an interview on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’, Cosby said calling Zimmerman a racist doesn’t solve anything. Cosby says the bigger question is what he was doing with a gun, and who taught him how to behave with it.
‘What is solved by saying, ‘He’s a racist, that’s why he shot the boy’?’ he said.
Cosby, who first spoke out about the shooting of the 17-year-old earlier in the month, said in the interview: ‘When a person has a gun, sometimes their mind clicks, that this thing will win arguments and straighten people out.‘I’m not saying you can’t have it in your home to protect yourself… you’ve got to protect yourself in your own home,’ he argued.
But I also believe that when you tell me that you are going to protect the hood that I live in, I don’t want you to have a gun,’ he said. ‘I want you to be able to see something, report it and get out of the way.
Cosby, whose own son was shot dead in Los Angeles in 1997, said during the interview that he once owned a gun but no longer does. The 74-year-old entertainer reiterated the need to get guns off the streets, and said that people should be taught to use every possible alternative before shooting someone.
Earlier in the month Cosby questioned why neighborhood watch volunteers, like Zimmerman, are allowed to carry guns.
‘Without a gun, I don’t see Mr. Zimmerman approaching Trayvon by himself,’ he told the Washington Post. ‘The power-of-the-gun mentality had him unafraid to confront someone. Even police call for backup in similar situations.

When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody.

Mr. Cosby sure does make some wild assumptions of gun owners. Of those I know that own guns, their prayer is always that they NEVER have to shoot someone. But when there is an emergency – such as an intruder in your home, office, church, or car – you are armed to protect yourself and/or fellow citizens.
If Mr. Cosby’s son was carrying a gun he might have been able to protect himself, even though he wasn’t in his own home.
He wants to get guns off the streets? Well, in a perfect world criminals wouldn’t have guns. We don’t live in a perfect world.
Lastly, when seconds count, the police are minutes away. I’d rather rely on my Second Amendment right to protect me than wait for the cops to rescue me.

  1. Let’s try this scenario and see where it takes each of us:
    Both fellows are armed w/the same piece. Both are strolling the streets doing whatever equally. As they see one another, whatever goes off in their minds & hearts goes off, both draw, and fire….
    So who was the MOST right? Was anyone? Or no one?
    We know what the law says, but what do you say?
    How many reading this can recall Rodney King’s plea?
    “All wisdom is the fear of the Lord and includes the fulfilling of the law. The knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom….”
    Ecclesiaticus 19:20-21.

     
  2. From the personal responsibility of the Poundcake Speech to it’s-guns’-fault… Bill has wimped-out.

     
  3. Had Zimmerman not had a gun, and if the stories I’m hearing from the witnesses are even close to accurate, he could very well be dead now.
    Being tried by twelve beats being carried out by six any day.

  4. I’ve never understood the preoccupation people have regarding comments by celebrities. Most are uninformed (like Cosby) and don’t deserve the added attention they get about their beliefs.

     
  5. I tuely wish we didn’t have guns,or bombs,or swords,or knives
    or sticks and stones…but disarming the populace has BEEN tried
    and has failed where ever it has been tried because criminals
    and bullies cheat and aquire weapons of intimidation….because
    THEY don’t /won’t control themselves and respect the dignity
    and rights of others. Freedom must be defended from those who
    would abuse it.

    I would have to think that Billy and his kind are blind fools! “Keep guns off the street”? Just how would they do that – with reams of new Laws? Gang-bangers, drug cartels et al by their very existence declare that they have NO respect for the Law and THESE folks are responsible for the bulk of street crime involving guns!
    Even in Europe whose gun Laws are almost draconian compared to ours have a MAJOR problem with gun violence.
    Also, it is a KNOWN FACT that in places with Concealed Carry Laws the violent crime rate DROPS – considerably!

    “celebrity’s opinions”, indeed! Are the proles too blind to realize that an actor’s entire life and livelihood ABSOLUTELY depends on their ability to say and behave the way they are told to in a convincing manner?
    Besides, even if they DID have an independent thought on “life” – how in the world does the “life” of a coddled celebrity compare to that of the average working Joe? Marie Antoinette’s alleged quote “Let them eat cake” is eminently applicable, here.

    Cosby is WRONG AGAIN, guns don’t kill, people do! Respect is what keeps honest people from killing, the gang bangers have no respect for anyone or anything! There are 60 Million Gun owners that NEVER SHOT AND KILLED ANYONE, in years. Gang bangers, criminals and punks do it EVERY DAY. They do it to their own people! Smart HUH? They are too tough, Lazy and Stupid to get a job and get out of the circle! Semper Fi.

     
  10. Sage, I truly feel bad his son was killed. I know how my father might feel about guns. As you recall, I was threatened on our blog last year. My father immediately reacted, as did my boyfriend, by giving me ways to protect myself.
    Criminals are a fact of life. To believe we can be rid of all danger is not realistic IMO. Better to be prepared and protected than to ignore realities.
    I know it’s not the preference of all yet I prefer to be prepared. As does my dad and boyfriend.

     
    • Glad to hear that your dad and bf have a clue. It’s not my preference either but… I have a… not going into it here. When I get a chance I’ll post of pic of me on the range…
