Gun Control And Race

Disarming minorities:

It’s fairly common for gun control activists to stereotype firearm owners as ‘knuckle-dragging rednecks’ and that our feelings would change if we saw ‘black folk’ walking around open carrying firearms. They even have Bogus research supporting them. Why is it then that most ‘gun control’ bills seem focused on disarming minorities?

    I think it is a case of the pot calling the kettle black

    Well that have to keep the guns out of the hands of dangerous minorities. Remember only white people obey the law. You see a black man with a gun and you know that he is up to no good. See a white guy and he is a beer swilling, gun toting, redneck. That is the stereotype the government and media would like to portray. Remember fear is the governments best friend. It keeps us in check with minimal work.

    Some people are racist enough to believe that street gang members are minorities only?

    The gun bill makes it a felony to sell to someone who is a “street gang member.” I don’t see anywhere where race or color are mentioned.

    We have multi-ethnic street gangs around here, and they include whites. http://www.justice.gov/marshals/wanted/mcghee.pdf

    Name one of those ‘some people’.

    I don’t see anywhere where race or color are mentioned.

    Implication is pretty clear that the primary targets in Illinois would be people less likely to be white.

    Firearms laws sought to disarm African Americans, and those who pursued restrictions did so in order to attack minorities without fear of danger to themselves.

    I was warmed upon hearing that Dr. Rice, the first African American female National Security Adviser, and the first African American female Secretary of State, was defended by her father who armed himself against the KKK. His rifle, she says, defended her family and her home from racists who wanted to kill them all.

    At present, this legacy of firearms restrictions disproportionately targets African Americans, and renders them defenseless against crime. Legislators know that, and leave them without the means of self-defense.

    workinwifdakinds,

    Now that you mention that racist organization, it’s ironic that the KKK and the NAACP agree– black Americans should be disarmed just like they were during the days of legalized slavery and afterward with “Jim Crow” laws.

    If minority gun rights weren’t such a tradition there would be a Hell of a lot less crime in “central urban areas” (shut up, you know damn well that’s code). Because, the good people in those areas outnumber the thugs, but the thugs have guns. When we start seeing traditionally black neighborhoods armed in the main, we will start to see drive-bys and corner terror campaigns ending or at the worst greatly diminishing in frequency. The good people do outnumber the thugs, the problem is the good people are afraid to defend themselves. They may survive non-specific gang violence, but they know the law will fuck them up 100% of the time if they defend themselves with a gun or clean up their neighborhoods the same way.

    “If minority gun rights DENIAL”, sorry think faster than I type.

    It’s a Hell of thing when an entire demographic fears the law more than they fear violent and ever-present criminals.
