“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.”
