“See, the right to bear arms was given at a time when there was no regulated militia to protect America,” he said. “But now you have police well-armed, you have state troopers well armed, you have the National Guard and you have federal troops.” (Yes and the founders were against standing armies)
Farrakhan continued from there, claiming that “there is no need for the American people to be armed to the teeth if you have a responsible militia to protect the society of the United States.” He also noted his dismay over the number of weapons owned (his figure: 350 million) versus the number of Americans (nearly 314 million).
It is none of his business how many arms people have whether they be black people, white people, brown people. We are all people and we all have the right to bear arms. Not because the Constitution says so, but because it is an NATURAL GOD GIVEN RIGHT which is part of securing a free people and staying that way.
