Non sequitur: Ostensibly comic video calls for the formation of a “black NRA”

I know that responding to the likes of videos from Funny or Die is supposed to be super lame because “it’s just supposed to be funny!” and that doing so means that I must simply be devoid of any sense of humor, but a video’s ostensibly humorous and satirical qualities do not excuse the peddling of maliciously false information. I’m sure you all remember that nonsensical and mean-spirited anti-gun rights gem from Jim Carrey awhile back, and Sarah Silverman is out with a new anti-NRA video of a similar caliber.
Excuse me, but… Did Silverman just imply that all black people are criminals? Because, absolutely yes — as an actual member of the National Rifle Association, I am one hundred percent all about the equal application of the Second Amendment to all law-abiding adult citizens. The NRA isn’t busying themselves with advocating that anyone should be denied the right to carry a concealed firearm upon their person because they’re not white — in fact, they actively do just the opposite, and I have no idea from where it is that these self-imagined satirists think they’re getting this garbage. “This ‘stand your ground’ law, it’s for everybody, right?” …Right. The right to self-defense is an indisputably equal-opportunity protection that should be afforded to all upstanding Americans, and nobody — and certainly not the NRA — ever said otherwise.
