On Sunday Minister Louis Farrakhan said during a sermon series titled “The Time and What Must Be Done” that the American right to bear arms is an outdated concept. Farrakhan noted that Americans are growing angrier at their government and preparing for war. But Farrakhan doesn’t seem to believe that the Second Amendment is relevant in modern society.
“See, the right to bear arms was given at a time when there was no regulated militia to protect America,” he said. “But now you have police well-armed, you have state troopers well-armed, you have the National Guard and you have federal troops.”
Farrakhan went on to say that the number of Americans who are fed up with their government is multiplying.
“Look at the American peoples’ thoughts about Congress. What is the percentage of the American people that feel that the U.S. Congress is doing a good job? Eleven percent,” said Farrakhan. “Then 89 percent of the American people are angry, disaffected, dissatisfied with their government — and you’re selling them weapons of war and the militias are multiplying.”
Previously, Farrakhan drew criticism for calling America a “savage” country.
“This nation has been built on violence,” Farrakhan said in the Jan. 13 sermon. “Uncivilized, uncultivated, brutal, wild…and that’s why the prophet gave America one of those names as a beast — both of the book of Daniel and in the book of Revelations.”
