Katie Pavlich from Townhall.com says it best.
First off, I know this is supposed to be a "funny video" but there’s nothing funny about Sarah Silverman pointing a gun at her head. Gun safety 101. Second, there are a whole bunch of young black men in Chicago who have illegal guns and they’re killing each other by the hundreds every year. Third, leave it to the liberals to section off groups of people based on skin color. Of course we can’t just have the NRA, a civil rights organization open to people of every shape, size and color, we have to have a "black" NRA. Fourth, people like Silverman could learn a thing or two about black men owning guns from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Most people think King would be the last person to own a gun. Yet in the mid-1950s, as the civil rights movement heated up, King kept firearms for self-protection. In fact, he even applied for a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
A recipient of constant death threats, King had armed supporters take turns guarding his home and family. He had good reason to fear that the Klan in Alabama was targeting him for assassination.
