Larry King Says the Second Amendment Was Enacted to ‘Ward Off Slave Uprisings’

Television host Larry King added his thoughts to the controversial debate around gun control and noted the 2nd Amendment was originally created to fight off slave rebellions.

King agrees with former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens’ opinion of the Second Amendment being repealed.

“I favor changing the Second Amendment …Yeah, repeal it … It’s poorly written. What’d they mean by ‘militia’,” the former CNN host asserted to TMZ on Wednesday.

“You know who started the second amendment? It was southern senators, so they could ward off slave uprisings,” King stated. The host also prodded the National Rifle Association for its gun laws and historical context. “The NRA is the worst,” he said.

The host also told the cameraman to “read his history.”

King’s remarks follow after Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens’ op-ed article on Tuesday written in the New York Times. The former law employee urged protesters to suggest a repeal of the Second Amendment. He added that it would be “more effective” and give a “more lasting reform.”

“[Repealing the Second Amendment] would eliminate the only legal rule that protects sellers of firearms in the United States — unlike every other market in the world,” Stevens wrote.

The op-ed piece also noted that the Second Amendment “provided the NRA with a propaganda weapon of immense power.”
