Condi! Condi! Condi!

From The Volokh Consiracy:
Condoleeza Rice has described herself as "a Second Amendment absolutist." An article in the Montgomery Advertiser explains why. She grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, where her father, a Presbyterian minister, was a strong advocate of civil rights:

Rice has said memories of Birmingham's racial turmoil shaped some of
her core values. During the bombings of the summer of 1963, her father and other neighborhood men guarded the streets at night to keep white vigilantes at bay.

Rice said her staunch defense of gun rights comes from those days. She
has argued that if the guns her father and neighbors carried had been
registered, they could have been confiscated by the authorities, leaving the black community defenseless.

Now do you liberals get it? Sheez, look who I'm talking to.
