Second Amendment Foundation: Self Defense Is a Human Right

Monday, February 25, 2013 | AWR Hawkins | Breitbart
The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) has launched a new campaign titled, "Equal Gun Rights." The Foundation aims to show that gun rights are being unequally protected, and actually infringed, in different areas of our country--particularly in areas with a high minority population.

SAF accomplishes this by focusing on how residents in predominantly red states and red cities enjoy the freedom to defend themselves with handguns, shotguns, and AR-15s, while residents in blue states--and particularly blue cities--frequently lack the freedom to even own a weapon sufficient to mount a defense at all.

The thesis is born out in places like NYC, Chicago, and our nation's capital, solidly blue cities all, in which citizens have been denied the necessary tools for self-defense by Democrat policies barring gun ownership at various levels.

And for a party like the Democrats, so fixated on race, this is problematic--because ultimately their blue city policies result in unequal gun rights for law-abiding minorities in inner city, high crime areas.  Taken in this light, gun control can come across as being as anti-African American as the old segregationist policies that kept African Americans unarmed in the Democrat's Confederacy and the Democrat's Jim Crow South.
