1. There was a group of African-Americans that armed themselves for self-protection. They were called the Black Panthers and the NRA and then-Gov. Ronald Reagan worked together to pass strict gun control laws to keep all those scary black folk from having guns. Trust me when I tell you Rush would have been at the front of the line demanding all those scary armed black men be disarmed by the police.

      The Black Panthers were hardly unique. There was also a group called the Deacons of Defense and Justice who took up arms during the Jim Crow era to defend their communities against the violent terrorism of the KKK:


      At this point, some are shocked that Black Christians would exercise their Second Amendment rights instead of turn the other cheek. Still, let’s recall that another Black Christian named Frederick Douglas said this:

      “The liberties of the American people were dependent upon the ballot-box, the jury-box, and the cartridge-box; that without these no class of people could live and flourish in this country.”


      Amazing what you learned when you do research.

    Actually brings a different meaning to pass the plate. Pass the ammo. Just specify caliber, please.

    I think if more African Americans had guns the political landscape would look a lot different. Imagine if black folks had guns and were adamant about the 2nd Amendment. Do you think they’d be AS inclined to vote Democrat? This is the very reason the Democrats want gun control and the NRA and both parties have done their best to limit minorities from having guns. It’s no accident urban cities, pretty much across the board in America have strict gun laws…. Who occupies those cities. See a pattern?


    1. That’s a rather, well, that’s a rather stupid view. THe NRA lobbied for gun control to keep African Americans from having guns, even in the rural areas.

      Americans want gun control because we are tired of mass shootings – usually by insane white kids.

      The rest of your statements is, well, its racist. Thanks for stopping by

        “How do we expect to have any impact on a society and say, ‘We’re going to pass a law. Hey this is inexcusable. We can’t allow any more of this. Let’s pass a law that will change the course of the future’ when we don’t enforce the laws that we have on the books — the most important laws?…

        I think there’s much more promise for a solution in identifying, researching and creating solutions along the lines of mental health issues — I think there’s a lot of work that can be done there,” he said. ”I believe the solution may not be as easy to implement as I might hope, but it’s a simple concept. We need civility across our nation.”

        “The one thing I learned from Columbine pertaining to gun control is that it is highly political,” he said. “When I actually educated myself on the issue it became increasingly clear that the gun control lobby and the politicians that share those views are in fact creating more problems than they solve.

        Criminals and murderers love defenseless people and they are enabled by the laws that create such environments,” Todd added. “Gun control is a blessing to those who wish to do evil and deadly to good people.”

        Just a reminder that not every survivor of a massacre blindly leaps on the bandwagon of gun control, which leads to more violence than it solves. See Chicago.
