Audio: Gun Control Columnist Jason Whitlock Compares the NRA to KKK This is one of the stupidest and ill-informed opinions I've ever heard. If Whitlock bothered to do a little research heâ€™d find out that gun control laws were put into place to disarm blacks. Whatâ€™s even more crazy is that heâ€™s essenti ally advocating a completely racist idea: that blacks are incapable of being trusted with firearms and need to be protected from themselves. So the KKK, who wanted to disarm Blacks and deny them the freedom to protect themselves is the same as the NRA, who support the right of people, no matter their race, to be armed. I'm wondering if he ever actually blames a black person for their own situation, rather than white society at large.
