Guns Are Useful, Notes... CNN Panel

Oh really?

Celebrity chef and author Roy Choi revealed that he was present during the 1992 Los Angeles riots. According to Bourdain, Huang’s family used a cache of rifles to fend off rioters from destroying their family-owned Korean store. “You had no support from police or local or city government,” Bourdain noted. “This was a clear example of the right to bear arms preventing utter, utter, utter devastation.”

Choi shared his own ambivalence on the gun issue, adding that “it’s about protection” in a violent and often-ignored Los Angeles inner-city culture. “Maybe we shouldn’t be talking about guns,” he suggested, “maybe we should worry about human rights.”

CNN anchor Don Lemon confessed that he has “evolved” on the gun issue from being staunchly opposed to many types of gun possession to “not wanting to be sitting duck.”

“If other people have guns and they’re not going away, I’m wondering if I should be armed,” Lemon said.
