It’s far past time for politicians to start paying attention to the “silent middle” and stop overlooking them, a black gun advocate said during a Friday news segment.
“What’s happening is that you have fringes on both side that are screaming and the silent middle is just being overlooked. We’re over taxed. We’re under-represented. We’re disregarded,” North Carolina resident Mark Robinson told “Fox & Friends” hosts. “A lot of times are words are ignored. That needs to cease.”
Robinson made headlines this week when a video of him defending the second amendment and critiquing politicians who would want to take away guns from law-abiding citizens at a city council meeting went viral.
Robinson explained he felt he had to attend the city council meeting to let politicians know that he would not “sit idly” while they tried to take away his rights.
“I had to let the council know how I felt,” he added. “I do not intend to sit idly by while politicians make rules that take away my rights as law-abiding citizen. If I commit a crime, I expect my rights to be withheld. Until that time I expect my rights due to me under the Constitution and my government and city and state.”
