There is no Equality without the Equalizer
2013-02-25
It's about Equality. You won't see President Obama or his gun-grabbing cohorts admitting it, but the simple fact is that disarmament in America has historically been racially motivated. Yes, you read that right. Gun Control has racist roots. According to the George Mason University Civil Rights Law Journal Vol. 2 (1991): 67 titled Gun Control & Racism: The history of gun control in America possesses an ugly component: discrimination and oppression of blacks, other racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, and other "unwanted elements," including union organizers and agrarian reformers. Firearms laws were often enacted to disarm and facilitate repressive action against these groups. Read More...
Organizer of Gun Appreciation Day calls out the racist outcome of gun control
2013-02-25
“It is unconscionable that in 2013 we have folks harboring a pre-civil rights era mentality that… seeks to keep guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens just for being in urban, higher percentage minority areas” Larry Ward, President of Political Media and principle organizer of Gun Appreciation Day, today released the following statement along with a video supporting a new project, EqualGunRights.com. The video, produced in collaboration with the Second Amendment Foundation, highlights the disproportionate impact of gun control laws on the African-American population, and how that discrimination leaves large groups unable to defend themselves, their families, or their businesses. Read More...

What Would Django Do? Arms and “The Man”
2013-02-25
Why do African-Americans side with liberal proponents of gun control? Historically, guns have been the African-American’s greatest friend. The great Ida B. Wells, who, like me, had to flee Klan supporters in Tennessee after writing a newspaper article, said that “a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home….” Read More...
Things would be different in America if African-Americans had guns in the '60s
2013-02-24
A few weeks ago, Rush Limbaugh said this: Try this. If a lot of African-Americans back in the ’60s had guns and the legal right to use them for self-defense, you think they would have needed Selma? I don’t know, I’m just asking. If John Lewis, who says he was beat upside the head, if John Lewis had had a gun, would he have been beat upside the head on the bridge? Anyway, that’s what we’re — and these people that think like Brokaw are all over the media. This is the way they’re looking at this. (here)  Read More...
Gun Control: White Man's Law
2013-02-24
Chances are that you've never heard of General Laney. He hasn't had a brilliant military career, at least as far as I know. In fact, I'm not certain that he's even served in the military. General, you see, isn't Laney's rank. General is Laney's first name. General Laney does, however, have a claim to fame, unrecognized though it may be. Read More...
Are Gun Control Laws Discriminatory?
2013-02-24
Talk with a serious gun-control advocate about methods used to make gun ownership more difficult, and you may hear an argument that runs something like this: "Well, if we increase the prices of guns and bullets, those people will not be able to afford them; after all, those people are the ones who commit the greatest percentage of crimes." Who is this person referring to when he/she says "those people"? The answer is clear--minorities and the poor. Since substituting "blacks" for "those people" clearly renders the statement racist and patronizing (not to mention unconstitutional), gun control advocates, intent on making gun-ownership more costly, have devised a variety of legislative means to camouflage their true motivations. Such legislation merely represents a continuation of gun-control advocates' long-standing affair with racial and socioeconomic discrimination. Read More...

Gun Control Facts: Detroit Crime Rate is the Result Of Gun Control
2013-02-19
Ronald Reagan is often quoted as saying, “Government is not a solution to our problem, government is our problem.” The same can be said when it comes to gun control and crime in Detroit, Michigan. A quick review of Michigan gun laws shows that law abiding citizens wishing to own a gun for self-protection are strongly regulated and actively discouraged. First, they have to take and pass the Michigan Basic Pistol Safety questionnaire. Then they have to apply for the Ten Day Handgun Purchase Permit to buy the gun and make sure they find and buy the gun of their choice within 10 days, otherwise they have start the process all over again. When they make their purchase, they have to fill out a Michigan Pistol Sales Record form and make sure the pistol has a valid firearm Safety Inspection Certificate Read More...

In fact, demand has been so massive that the FBI’s background check system in a number of states crashed as a result of being overwhelmed.

Danny Glover Claim vs History of Racism and Gun Control
2013-02-06
Danny Glover tells Texas A & M students the second Amendment was "designed and crafted to protect slaveowners." Of course nobody challenged him or stood up to him during his history lesson. There is however a lot to be said about gun control by government to keep black people from owning guns. Nearly every gun control law from slavery to the civil rights era was to keep guns out of the hands of black and hispanic people. Read More...
