A coalition of pro-gun groups is stirring up controversy by calling for a nationwide “Gun Appreciation Day” the same week as Martin Luther King Jr. Day and President Obama‘s inauguration.

Gun Appreciation Day chairman Larry Ward added fuel to the fire during a recent appearance on CNN where he had the gall to say that Gun Appreciation Day actually honors the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., who was committed to non-violence. But Ward’s ridiculousness didn’t stop there.

“I think Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree with me if he were alive today that if African Americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country’s founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history,” Ward said.

Ward was on CNN with Maria Roach, whose group United for Change USA began a petition against Gun Appreciation Day.

Watch Ward’s statements, when see how Maria Roach responded:
