Gun Control is About the Oppression of Minorities

Quote of the Day

This history of gun control is exceptionally ugly. Dating back to the colonial times in the 1600s in the New World, and before that in Europe and elsewhere, gun control was used to disarm various minority groups to leave them open to terror, oppression, and exploitation. Slaves, freed slaves, Native Americans/Indigenous Peoples as well as Catholics and others were targeted by colonial authorities and the early states with explicit gun control measures to keep them obedient and in line. These SAME laws are NOW being used to by gun control advocates to advocate for gun control TODAY. Gun control advocates are using the very existence of these laws as a legal basis to show that there is a “historical tradition” within the United States and preceding colonies as a claim to bolster the constitutionality of gun control today.

(PROOF) RACIST History Of Gun Control Colonies + Early States [Part 1]

It should not surprise anyone that the gun control advocates of today are using the racist laws of yesterday. All gun control laws are ultimately about the oppression of a disfavored minority.

To successfully overcome these evil forces requires, among other things, a change in the state of mind. Make the debate about the evil of what these people are enabling and the implicit alignment with the racists who inflicted their evil upon others for hundreds of years.

  1. The so-called English Bill of Rights provided the RKBA only to Protestants. I guess 1689 was better than today when only the government has arms. The whole debate then was between whether the right was given by the King or Parliament. No mention of God, even then those more godly times.

  2. To me, the debate comes down to a simple dichotomy:

    With an armed population, we run the risk of tragedies. With a disarmed population, we run the risk of genocide.

    It staggers my imagination that, so very soon after the mass killings of the 20th century, so many people have lost sight of this.

    I expected that, as the last of the Holocaust survivors die out, we’d see ever-increasing Holocaust denial. I didn’t expect that people would forget what a slaughter-house the 20th century was… and how citizens must remain ever vigilant, watching for their own government.

    “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
    — Frederick Douglass

    “A ruler’s head should always have a noose around it. It keeps him upright.”
    — Lazarus Long, as quoted by R.A. Heinlein

  3. Calling out racism on communists only works if they have a sense of hypocrisy. They don’t.
    And this was always going to be the problem with using an historical argument to preserve rights.
    They have plenty of those laws to fall back on. As tyrants have been around writing them long as history can record.
    The real problem is humans, especially ones in government, can’t accept simple concepts. And the 2A text is just that, simple. Very easy to understand. Both concept and reason are iron clad in their simplicity. And were made so for just such a time as today.
    The good part of it is that it marks your enemies just as easily.
    Your either, to stupid to be in the grown-up’s conversation. Or your willing to go along with the evil gun-control always precedes.
    And if you just don’t like guns? Shut-up and move to England already.
    We live in the country of wolves now. Either grow some teeth or get ate.

  4. Gun control is about only one thing. CONTROL. Anything else said about it is a distraction.

  5. The FIRST thing the power hungry types do is take control of the schools, and start editing HISTORY courses and books, so the rabble loses sight of how things go when the masses are disarmed. It’s all downhill from there.
