NRA News unveiled its newest commentator, Colion Noir, on its website Monday.
Noir, in his first video commentary, pointed out apathy toward inner-city murder rates to open a conversation on the looming gun control legislation that he asserts only targets the middle-class.
“Let’s talk about the violence in the inner cities. Everyone wants to ask why. Why the killing, why the murders, why the deaths?” Noir asks in his opening remarks that are followed by an NRA disclaimer that states that the following opinion “does not necessarily reflect the views of the National Rifle Association.”
“The number of gun deaths in the inner cities completely dwarf the number of gun deaths from mass shootings,” Noir states, as the video displays a graphic of Chicago gun deaths (361) vs. mass shootings (33) in 2011.
“But for some reason nobody ever brings up the violence in the inner cities until we have a mass shooting in never, never land,” he said.
“While we’re at it, because everyone wants to cry gun control every time there’s a mass shooting, let’s be real. When’s the last time a little skinny black kid walked into a school and started shooting people randomly?”
“Don’t worry, I’ll wait.”
“That’s right, they haven’t. Because they’re too busy killing each other.”
