    Very interesting. Do you know when this was made? I'm just curious if it was pre Obama or post. I read once that after an AA person was shot in Illinois that a young Obama co sponsored some stand your ground legislation. That sounds too good to be true for second amendment advocates but the comments on the NRA are spot on.

    Negroes and the Gun: A G&P conversation with the author | Human Events

    Historically blacks were targeted for gun control, he said. “It is explicit as early as 1680 in Colonial America.”

    Similar targeted gun control was implemented in post-Civil War Black Codes, which contributed to the passage of the 14th Amendment, he said.

    “Much of the conversation surrounding the passage of the 14th Amendment went to the problem of southern state governments who, in an essential act of war, were explicitly attempting to disarm freedmen.” A freedman was a former slave who was legally released by emancipation or by owner.

    Southern states enacted gun control statutes in the post-Civil War period that were de-facto racially motivated, said Johnson. “In the beginning of the 20th century discriminatory provisions were in effect in a variety of places.”

    The people who fought against discriminatory practices are American heroes, said the writer for The Volokh Conspiracy a division of The Washington Post.

    “Two U.S. Supreme Court cases that recently affirmed our right to keep and bear arms were led by black plaintiffs: Shelly Parker and Otis McDonald,” he said. “Lots of people thought Parker and McDonald were dupes or fools. It turns out they were an extension of a long tradition of a sober, mature community having access to firearms.”

    The book shows that up until the 1970s the image of gun ownership in the black community is more consistent with reality than what is in the popular news today, he said.
    Johnson said it is discriminatory that an acknowledged prerogative of citizenship is denied to the black community. “The idea that certain communities are just too dangerous and these folks are not prepared for freedom is problematic.”

    In relation to gun homicides, the data is fairly clear that the people who murder are extremely aberrant people, he said.

    “The stereotype of someone who was otherwise showing no signals of any violent incidences sort-of ‘flying off the handle’ and becoming a murderer are repeated so often in the media people think it is a common thing, when it is actually an aberrant circumstance.”
    This is a great article. The author points out the division between urban and rural dwellers. How urban dwellers believe the state or the government can protect them - and how rural folks are more prone to believe in self-reliance and owning a gun is an important tool in protecting our homes and our families.

    Very refreshing that this comes from a group that identifies with liberals.

    The anti-gun media and politicians don't like us finding "common ground".

    They will find a way to divide us.

    What a coincidence ! The longer version of this was posted in a previous thread recently and I was sorry not to have bookmarked it. I was impressed and encouraged with all they had to say. I was discouraged to see the lack of interest in their message by the press which was clearly shown in the longer version by the empty seats in front of them.
