NBC News: We Are ‘Endangering Ourselves’ By Owning Guns… We Need Obama to ‘Save Us’


MSNBC host Touré delivered a monologue on Monday in which he listed the number of reasons why he thinks it is time for the Democratic Party, and President Barack Obama in particular, to come out in favor of sweeping gun control measures. He said that the Democratic Party has an irrational fear of gun control legislation, and it is time for Obama to deliver for the “suburban and urban voters who show up for Dems in droves.” Only Obama can “save us from the gun epidemic,” Touré concluded.

“We want to envision ourselves as a nation of vigilantes protecting ourselves with our guns,” Touré began. “But that’s not what’s happening. We’re an over-armed nation helping gun makers get richer by believing blatant lies that the government is plotting to take away our guns, and believing the myth that we’re protecting and not endangering ourselves.”

Touré went on to list a number of statistics that he believes proves the notion that more guns are endangering the welfare of average Americans rather than making us safer.
