This ‘Activist’ Says You Are Racist For Owning Guns

It’s astounding the leaps of (lack of) logic and the assumptions that anti-gunners make to support their gun control position. Simply amazing.

You’ve heard some of them. They have said that an AR-15 shoots 700 bullets per minute. They call AR-15s fully automatic weapons. They say that gun control saves lives. (By the way, none of these things are true.)

And, here is another ridiculous statement for you from Nathan Wuertenberg, “founder of the online journal ‘The Activist History Review:'”

Gun violence is rooted in white supremacy. We can’t solve the first without understanding its connection to the second.

Discussions of gun “rights” in the United States usually revolve around debated interpretations of the Second Amendment. But if we truly want to understand the influence of guns in our society, we need to center the debate in a much earlier period, one before the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.

In Colonial America, gun ownership equaled power.

I actually agree with Wuertenberg about that last sentence. Gun ownership is about power. Where he and I disagree is the reason why gun owners want to have the power of a gun.

Wuertenberg says that owning guns is about keeping African-Americans and other minorities in a subservient position in society.

He couldn’t be more wrong.

The truth is that guns allow people to have the opportunity to not be abused by their own government or by other people.

Gun control laws were actually put in place in America to keep minorities from having access to firearms so that minorities could not throw off oppression. In other words, gun control laws were put in place to keep minorities from having power. David Kopel and Joseph Greenlee write,

Guns have historically protected Americans from white supremacists, just as gun control has historically protected white supremacists from the Americans they terrorize.

One month after the Confederate surrender in 1865, Frederick Douglass urged federal action to stop state and local infringement of the right to arms. Until this was accomplished, Douglass argued, “the work of the abolitionists is not finished.”

So, the truth of the matter is that Wuertenberg is simply trying to rewrite history to support his twisted anti-gun narrative.

The problem is that many people will read historical revisionism like his and actually think it is the truth. When you see it, tell them what Frederick Douglass said. Gun control oppresses minorities. If we want racial equality in America, then all ethnicities must have legal access to guns.

  1. Wuertenberg. Let’s see, that’s Germanic isn’t it? I can see why you would want gun control, the Nazi’s confiscated weapons before they tried to conquer the world didn’t they?

  2. Goofy ass liberals, do mot have a clue as to why America hasn’t became a communist country.
    It’s because of us gun owners. The only thing keeping us free, is gun owners like myself standing ready to defend freedom. Only problem that I would have, is knowing which are the liberal’s. I would not waste 1 bullet on a brainwashed liberal. They would be on there owing to share a cupcake with a commie, in hopes that they get a hug, and not a knife to the throat. GO TRUMP🔫🇺🇸🤠🇺🇸

  3. Owning guns is RACIST? Well, let us take a look at Chicago, North and West Philadelphia. I guess that all the black on black gun violence is NOT racist! OH, I am so sorry. They are not legal gun owners but shoot people with unregistered guns.It is the total lack of respect for one another and law enforcement officers, elders, etc….These types of weapons and violence will not change with gun control. PERIOD.

  4. Has this idiot seen any minority person refused buy a gun dealer because they were a minority? he will not see the truth because he hears what the liberals say and thinks it is the God’s own words. He does not havethe brains to do his own research to find out they are wrong.

  5. WUERTENBERG IS IGNORANT TO THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND WHAT IT WAS WRITTEN FOR!! (DASH) MAYBE A HISTORY REFRESHER COURSE WOULD BE IN ORDER!!😀😉

    • WUERTENBERG IS IGNORANT TO THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND WHAT IT WAS WRITTEN FOR!!WOULD (DAH) MAYBE A HISTORY REFRESHER COURSE WOULD BE IN ORDER!!😀😉

  6. I guess that since I am retired from the Army, a believer in the Constitution and still remember the oath I took to serve and protect the United States. I also remember the history that I studied and researched in school and while I was attending the United States Sergeants Major Academy, about how the citizens of the United States being armed has help protect us from armed aggression on our shores, because our enemies new that we would have an armed force bigger then they could defeat.

  7. Is this thumb sucking ego maniac aware that without guns he would be speaking German or Japanese right now. Whenever he is feeling superior to this gun owning alleged racist he is welcome to come to my house and attempt to take my guns. And frankly I doubt I would have to revert to the use of one to “melt” this snowflake.

  8. Well my geuss is it will come down to who all has the balls to stand up with guns and stop this madness before it destroys all of us. We as Americans should all be stepping up and doing what works not hiding behind a phone computer exc. To push our idealogoy. We must all stand and stop the tyranny ball from rolling it has already begun. And we must stop it. Or it will not matter what race or color our skin is we will all bestreet ppl or. Elite. Or in prison camps thruout the world. I for one will be dead by the time this takes place thankfully for that. But a strong warning to you all. You best stop playing chicken and start resolving these issues. And always remember history so you do not repeat it. And always remember, skin color means nothing only what is in a man’s heart. Will decide his actions good or bad. And only a good man with a gun can stop a bad man.

  9. JUST ANOTHER DUMB LIBERAL WHO WANTS HIS 15 MINUTES OF SHAME. HE WANTS TO REWRITE HISTORY TO SUIT HIS BLINDNESS OF TRUE AMERICAN HISTORY. HE IS AFRAID TO FACE THE FUTURE UNLESS IT IS HIS WAY. STATEMENTS LKE HIS JUST SHOW THEIR IGNORANCE.

    • They can’t rewrite history. It isn’t taught anymore so they have nothing to base a rewrite on. We home teach our children history

  10. If that ass dont like it lets see if he she has the balls or kunt to come see me. They will get a education they wont forget

  11. Wasn’t it the NRA who went to court sometime back so that the citizens of Washington, DC could
    Own guns. There are many minoritties in DC today that have a little more safety today than they did a few years ago as well as other citizens of DC. It’s obvious this fellow knows nothing of history. The
    NRA has safety programs for children, I believe it’s called the Eddie Eagle program, they also are instructors for police departments and I believe For some service departments..,they are so ignorant of the truth that it’s frustrating. Even when you show them in black and white proof it goes right over their heads. Makes you wonder what they would be doing if there were no guns in this country. Probably cutting sugar cane in Cuba.

  12. Does he really believe,that just owning a gun,makes you a racist? When the SHTF,the police will be overwhelmed(they won’t send officers over,just to surround his house and protect him). The military wil be waiting for the issuance of munitions and will be helpless,Hospitals will be overrun and people,will die. As JFK said “Ask not what your country can do for you,but what you can do for your country”. They actions should be to become self reliant and prepared…that…is what you can do for your country and yourself. Stop relying on the government and start relying on yourselves,just as our forefathers did.

    • My .45 ACP (or 12 gauge shotgun) beats 911 every time. When seconds count, you can always count on the POLICE to be there just in time to zip your dead cold ass into a body bag. SO ignore the DEMOCOMMUNIST HYPE, get a weapon, get trained to use it, PRACTICE….and be prepared to protect your OWN ASS.

  13. I HAVE IT WITH YOU LIPTURDS, TO YOU EVERYTHING IS ABOUT RACE, I’M FED UP YOUR SAYING THAT GUN OWNERS ARE RACIST. I DO NOT OWN A GUN, NEVER HAD OWNE A GUN, I SUPPORT PEOPLETHAT DO OWN A GUN, IT IS YOU THE ALMIGHTY WHO WANT TO CONTROL OUR COUNTRY, YOU HAVE NOT ACQUIRED THE KNOWLEDGE, YOU ARE WHINNERS WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT HELL YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.

  14. The guy’s theorizing makes no sense at all. We retain free speech in this country, at least to some extent, so those who choose to, can listen to him.

  15. Guns don’t shoot by themselves. Its the one with the gun- usually illegal – that need to know about gun laws. The ones that kill innocent people have many major problems and need help dealing with the real world

  16. This clown and others like him suffer from a lack of mental development that leaves them with the delusion that ” I think it, so it is fact “. They actually believe this.

  17. the NRA was the FIRST organization to help arm blacks after the civil war. this fact is not mentioned in any current history books!!!! i wonder why( sarcasm intended)

  18. Then we must say that every union soldier during the civil war who lost body parts died or was wounded in an attempt to free the country from slavery was a racist. I do not believe the argument about gun owners being racist has any validity.

    • When will you get that the Civil War was NOT fought over slavery? The union soldiers were drafted almost exclusively. They were rounded up at the points of entry for immigrants, or were paid by richer American families so Jr. did not have to go to war.
      The South, on the other hand was a volunteer force until well after the Union used press gangs for their soldiers.
      The idea that is was over slavery was the same as the “Weapons of Mass Destruction” BS that the U.S. used to justify overturning Sadaam and his government.
      The country did not want the new territories to be potential slave states and there was a lot going on about that, but the Confederate states the tried to quit the union did NOT go to war for new slave areas. They did not want the competition to have slave labor.

  19. As far as l am concerned​, there are two reasons to own a gun. One is self protection, especially now with so many murders of ordinary people. The second reason is a potential of an overthrow of our government. If you think that is impossible, look into the history of the Philippines and its government overthrow by a dictator.

  20. Couple of questions Mr. Liberal speaker! Do you play video games that have guns or violence going on in them? Do you watch or go to movies where guns are used and invoking violence? If yes to either of these, you are not only a racist as you call everyone else, but a hypocrite to the highest degree. Unless you are going after the true and real cause, I would suggest you look in the mirror and say nothing. Guns do not place subconscious thoughts in the mind! The constant watching or playing of these types of images or processes do infect the mind of those that are vulnerable! I’m sure you will kick in your double standard thinking and continue to blame an in adement object. This is all indoctrinated thinking placed in you for a cause you’re not truly aware of. This is the United States of America and those serving have sworn to uphold the Constitution of this land so help them God! This will be upheld. Have a great day
