“Gun Control has Racist Roots” … Wait. What?

by Scott Morales

At risk of doing two gun related posts in a row, I have to post this because… well… I was shocked.  Yes.  I admit it.  Shocked.  Where were these folks in November…ahh, I’m distracting.  Check out the video.  Sit down first. And if you have a drink, put it on the coaster.  And if you don’t have a drink, get one, a stiff one, have  taste or two, then onto the coaster with it.

From the Daily Caller:


Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality:

“For black Americans, we know that gun control has ultimately been about people control. It sprouts from racist soil; be it after the, or during the infamous Dred Scott case where black man’s humanity was not recognized,”

Harry Alford, the president of the Black Chamber of Commerce:

“The National Rifle Association was started, founded by religious leaders who wanted to protect free slaves from the Ku Klux Klan,” said Alford.

“They would raise money, buy arms, show the free slaves how to use those arms and protect their families. God bless you. Many of us probably wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for the NRA.”

Ken Hutcherson, former linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys and pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Washington state:

“How many children have to die, black and white, for us to come to the conclusion that most of the gun violence is in cities with the most gun control? When are we going to change our minds and put some common sense in there?”

William Owens Jr., founder of God, Guns and the Constitution:

“This current administration is far from the truth.” “When they take our guns, they will also seek to take our God, and that’s when Americans will fight back.”

    Hmmm . . . the left would have you believe that the right was all for gun control after the LA riots because they wanted to control African Americans. They didn’t want them to have guns. This story would appear to prove just the opposite.

      seems like a common thread. the left does something bad, and through some twists and turns of logic…gets people to believe that the right is responsible for it! like, blaming republicans for slavery, or giving democrats the full and only credit for the civil rights act of 1964.

      I remember the LA riots from the viewpoint of he korean shopkeepers who kept their businesses from being burned by being armed…until the LAPD came along and took their guns away. I also remember that this was the reasoning for the california weapons registrations that later turned into confiscations.

        Right you are allen, I totaly agree. I wrote about this in my first official Grok post “Selective Intolerance”, an excerpt:

        If you support the left’s statist vision and help their real cause
        (i.e. state expansion), they’ll look the other way regarding the means
        by which they achieve it. This is what the left means by tolerance.
        They’ll tolerate any means to achieve their end goal. They can really
        give a flying hoot about gay marriage. It’s just another means to an
        end; another constituency that they can con into surrendering liberties
        in pursuit of statism. This is how the KKK lived within the Democratic
        party for so long. They voted to expand the state, and the Dems opposed
        civil rights legislation and anti-lynching laws. Everyone’s happy.

        If you’re not for state expansion into every sphere of life, then
        you’re a racist, sexist, homophobic bigot, and that will not be
        tolerated. But if you are, lynch whomever you’d like. They’ll tolerate
        that!

    Also for the record, Mike added the quotes. I did the blurb at the top.
