National Urban League president Marc Morial called for a new national assault weapons ban, saying the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is not absolute.
At the conclusion of Morial ‘s remarks, a Daily Caller reporter asked National Action Network president Al Sharpton if he agreed. Sharpton replied:
“Absolutely, I mean if you look at the Second Amendment it was that you would have militia to protect yourself in case the government came and attacked citizens.”
“First of all, if the government were to come to disarm you, you would not be able to use an automatic weapon to defend yourself. Let’s be serious. We’re in a world of drones now so the Second Amendment would not help you in that area. It is absurd to try to cite that.”
“People do not have the right to unregulated rights in this country. And I think that for those that use the Second Amendment [they] are conceding that they have no argument on why you need a magazine with 100 rounds of ammunition or 30 rounds of ammunition.”
