Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice offered an amazing story from her childhood to explain to the more liberal hosts of "The View" why she supports Second Amendment rights.

Here's what she said

"Let me tell you why I'm a defender of the Second Amendment," she began.

"I was a little girl growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the late fifties, early sixties," she explained. "There was no way that Bull Connor and the Birmingham Police were going to protect you."

"And so when White Knight Riders would come through our neighborhood," she said, "my father and his friends would take their guns and they'd go to the head of the neighborhood, it's a little cul-de-sac and they would fire in the air, if anybody came through."

“I don't think they actually ever hit anybody," she continued. "But they protected the neighborhood. And I'm sure if Bull Connor had known where those guns were he would have rounded them up."

"And so, I don't favor some things like gun registration," she said to a suddenly silent crowd.

"That said, it's time to have a national conversation about how we can deal with the problems we have. It's not going to be any single fix to the terrible events at Parkland," she concluded.

Here's the video of Condoleeza Rice on "The View":
