Travon Martin

Not sure if the interviewer asked Heathcliff Huxtable… or if he just offered his 2 cents up but here it is:

“We’ve got to get the gun out of the hands of people who are supposed to be on neighborhood watch,” Cosby said in his first public remarks about the case.

“Without a gun, I don’t see Mr. Zimmerman approaching Trayvon by himself,” he added. “The power-of-the-gun mentality had him unafraid to confront someone. Even police call for backup in similar situations.”

“When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody,” Cosby said.

A show of hands if you read the quotes in Bill Cosbys voice?  LOL I did.

I find the most interesting line being the one about carrying a gun means that you are out to harm or kill somebody.  If he would have specified “killing scumbags that try to harm you or your family” I would have agreed, but his vague statement even encompasses police officers. Surely Bill Cosby doesn’t have a problem with police officers carrying guns.  It’s just the rest of us that aren’t responsible enough. *eye roll*

Next time when a white person gets shot, i’m emailing all major news papers and begging them to get Pauly Shore’s opinion. Cause you know… finding out what celebrities think about a topic they know nothing about is important.

Thoughts?
