On an episode of the NRA’s online Freestyle Network, the host of the self-titled Noir program claimed any attempt to separate out various makes and models of weapons and ban them as assault rifles would be nothing less than “Jim Crow-style segregation.”
Host Colion Noir, who is Africa-American, used the civil rights spin to encourage gun owners to not choose up sides, protecting one style of weaponry over another, reports Media Matters.
Offering up footage of several NRA members using guns, Noir noted, “Ironically, most guns are separate but pretty equal.”
“Let’s not forget that in ’94, the assault weapons ban would have banned all of these guns, the same ban they tried to reinstate in 2013,” Noir said. “I can see the hunting guy in his fluorescent orange-colored Gucci hunting vest shrugging his shoulders like, ‘I give two shits about a tactical AR-15,’ not realizing that all it takes for them to want to ban his beloved gun of choice is a D.C. sniper copycat and a bunch of clueless anti-gunners realizing that the .30-06 can punch a hole through space and time.”
Before labeling lawmakers who want to limit high-powered weapons from the market as “common mouth-breathing gun-hating politicians” Noir invoked Jim Crow America.
“It’s this form of tactical Jim Crow-style segregation — where if you don’t shoot that kind of gun, you don’t care what happens to it — that will cause us to all lose our rights,” Noir explained.

‘He’s crazy’: MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace says Trump’s confused behavior is getting ‘impossible’ to ignore
MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace argued Friday on "Deadline: White House" that the signs of Trump's frazzled and sometimes disjointed mental state are becoming "impossible" to ignore.
She first pointed to a passage in the New York Times report on his Thursday night rally, which said:
His speech was at times a greatest hits album of favorite lines, replaying the 2016 campaign against Hillary Clinton and bashing the news media, Democrats and America’s allies in Europe. Typically rambling, veering on and off script seemingly at random over an hour and a half, he repeated points he had already made earlier in the evening as if he did not remember already making them.
Fox’s Lou Dobbs: Man who plowed truck into ICE protesters is the real victim — and ‘well within his rights’
Fox Business host Lou Dobbs praised a corrections officer who intentionally plowed his truck into a crowd of protesters outside a Rhode Island ICE facility, saying the attack was justified.
A correctional officer at the Donald W. Wyatt Detention Facility in Central Falls, Rhode Island, intentionally drove his pickup truck into protesters demonstrating against the detention of migrants by ICE on Wednesday, the Providence Journal reported. Capt. Thomas Woodworth was placed on administrative leave after protest organizers said a 64-year-old protester suffered internal bleeding and a broken leg in the attack and another protester was injured as well. Fellow corrections officers sprayed protesters with pepper spray, sending three other people to the hospital.
Michael Moore breaks down why Trump is ‘scared’ of The Squad: ‘They’re the force out there!’
Legendary filmmaker Michael Moore revealed why President Donald Trump is so scared of the women of color in Congress known as The Squad.
The Squad is made up of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"So, Michael, when your political opposition tells you this is the play we’re going to run and the president underscores it, and they’re running this play, is there any — is The Squad blameless for giving the president a steady stream of oxygen and ammunition?" MSNBC's Brian Williams asked.
"I’m so glad he’s that frightened of them, both he and [Benjamin] Netanyahu are scared of them. And the reason they are is — and this is why Trump isn’t as dumb as he comes off," Moore said.
