Condoleezza Rice: ‘I Don’t Understand Why Civilians Need to Have Access to Military Weapons’

On Friday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice argued that there should be “a conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world.” She added, ” I don’t understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons.”

Rice said that men around her carrying firearms for protection when she was growing up in Birmingham was “a pure version of the 2nd Amendment, as a matter of fact, the right to bear arms.” She continued, “I will say this, Hugh. I think it is time for us to have a conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world. I don’t understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons. We wouldn’t say you can go out and buy a tank. So, I do think we need to have that conversation. But I believe that the rights that we have in the Constitution are indivisible. We can’t throw away the 2nd Amendment and keep the 1st.”

Rice also discussed allowing teachers to carry guns. She stated she would not be armed as a teacher. Rice continued, “I don’t really like the idea, frankly, of a gun in my classroom. I think that we need to have law enforcement protect us. Look, if people need to train people to protect our schools, and perhaps even communities want to consider whether or not they need guards to protect the schools, it’s a sad thing to think that we might, then that’s something that we should look at. But I don’t think that just arming people in the classroom is going to be the answer. I will say this, Hugh. We also have to get better at intelligence, when it is a domestic issue. Clearly, with this young man, there were all kinds of signs and signals, and all kinds of information that he was a problem.”

    Condoleezza Rice has to be a Dumb Cunt Globalist if she doesn’t know the reason why Americans need to have Military style guns. The reason being to protect themselves from a Tyrannical Government.

    can’t agree with her.these are not military weapons they just look like them.they are not asualt weapons either.anything can be used to asualt;s the human behind the weapon that’s the problem.don’t believe we need 30 round mags.10 per mag.would be enough.

    We feel our country is going in a wrong direction with people like our government officials breaking the laws and not being held responsible like Clinton, Obama, Comey etc… and with outside influences such as Globalist like SOROS, we feel we are heading into a war zone which requires military equipment.

    They do not have military guns unless they get a FFL 3 but then i do not understand why people must have huge mansions, all types of jewlry, 3 or more cars, eat like pigs and a long list of other things. It is not for you to understand why but just accept that we in America have that right. Why do you put your hair up like a kitchen?? Why do little girls have so many dolls and woman must have so many shoes that they do not wear?? Maybe it is because they like them!! Duh.

    Well almost every firearm action known to man was used on a military weapon at some point in history.
