Bill Cosby Says Get Guns Out of Neighborhood Watch

| by Michael Allen

In an interview published Saturday in The Washington Times, 74-year-old comedian Bill Cosby said that the Trayvon Martin shooting shows a need for gun control.

Cosby said: “We’ve got to get the gun out of the hands of people who are supposed to be on neighborhood watch. Without a gun, I don’t see Mr. Zimmerman approaching Trayvon by himself. 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.”
