Marion Hammer, the former president of the National Rifle Association, recently spoke out against an effort by congressional lawmakers to reinstate a ban on assault weapons and he compared such action to discriminating against people "because of the way they look."
In an interview on NRA News on Thursday, host Ginny Simone and Hammer argued that Sen. Dianne Feinstein was making a misguided crusade against gun owners.
Host Ginny Simone claimed that supporters of the ban:
"admit this is about banning the ugliest guns, it's about cosmetics and it has nothing to do about how a firearm works."
"Well, you know, banning people and things because of the way they look went out a long time ago. But here they are again. The color of a gun. The way it looks. It's just bad politics."
We don't know about you guys but we think banning assault weapons is not about looks or even comparable to racial discrimination.
