Flyer: Gun Control Has A Racist Past Just Like Virginia’s Governor

Flyer courtesy Mom-At-Arms.

I have to tell you that the flyer above may be the best thing that I’ve seen all day.

As you know, if you read this site on a regular basis, Virginia governor Ralph Northam and his anti-gun colleagues in the Virginia state legislature have been pushing hard for gun control since they won the recent election. And that is why we are seeing a real #VAGunRightsRebellion happening right now in that state.

What many people do not know (or have conveniently forgotten) is that this flyer is right on the money. Gun control does have a racist past, and so does Ralph Northam.


We’ve discussed gun ownership and the civil rights movement here in the United States before, specifically how Martin Luther King, Jr. was a gun owner and carried on a regular basis for personal protection. But the history of the racist roots of gun control go back much farther than sixty years ago. Clayton Cramer writes,

The historical record provides compelling evidence that racism underlies gun control laws — and not in any subtle way. Throughout much of American history, governments openly stated that gun control laws were useful for keeping blacks and Hispanics “in their place” and for quieting the racial fears of whites.

Racist arms laws predate the establishment of the United States. This is not surprising. Blacks in the New World were often slaves, and revolts against slave owners often degenerated into less selective forms of racial warfare. The perception that free blacks were sympathetic to the plight of their enslaved brothers and the “dangerous” example that blacks could actually handle freedom often led New World governments to disarm all blacks, both slave and free.

Maybe it shouldn’t be any surprise that the political party pushing gun control is the same political party that resisted both the abolition of slavery and desegregation.

Which brings us back to Ralph Northam, a member of that same political party with the racist past. Doug Stanton and John Bacon write in a February 2, 2019 article,

The political crisis engulfing the state began last week with the report that Northam’s page on his 1984 medical school yearbook featured a photo of a man in blackface standing next to another man wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood.

After initially suggesting that he was in the picture, he backtracked the next day and denied it, rejecting growing calls that he step down. Northam did, however, admit donning blackface for a Michael Jackson dance party more than 30 years ago.

So, let’s see: A racist past for gun control and a racist governor supporting gun control. Seems pretty obvious when you find out the truth, and someone decided to put two-and-two together and put out a flyer about it.

What really needs to happen, though, is that all of those anti-gunners who think that they are “woke” need to wake up to the truth about how gun control has historically been and continues to be racist. Share this article with anyone who you think might have eyes to see and ears to hear.



  1. IN MY OPINION: I served in the military, took an oath to defend the constitution and this country against all enemy’s both foreign and domestic. That oath is still in effect today so I guess you can say I am in a militia and maybe it is time for the militia to act.


  3. I too think it may be time they don’t know when to stop there tyranny so we must show them who the true commanders are

  4. While governor blackface’s past is a major concern (or should be at least) what is even MORE concerning is his current ‘crusade’ against guns and Law Abiding gun owners. If he gets his way on the current infringements, what will he go after next – plastic straws, large sodas??

  5. Donald, unfortunately, all of our politicians except the president took an oath to honor it and the presidential oath is to defend it. As far as I’m concerned those who oppose the 2nd Amendment have violated their oath as should be thrown out of office. And, yes, gun control after the civil war was racist.

  6. How do you like Northam’s proposal to cut off internet, electric power, water and natural gas services to any area that revolts against his unconstitutional gun grab? Allegedly he floated that idea last week to a small group of “advisors” and some of them were upset enough to leak it outside of the “inner circle”. Hopefully he would not be foolish enough to try that. You want to start some real trouble, try cutting off our water and power and heat in mid-winter.

  7. Hello and a PA country boy, disclosure I’m 63, HE YAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Suggestion start deporting these political anti gun communist to the country of there choice, that has gun laws they like. Sounds like a WIN, WIN proposal to me.

  8. Why is the Supreme Court not coming to the defense of the U.S. 2nd Amendment Rights of the People to Keep and Bear Arms???

  9. Most of National Guard would refuse to confiscate arms! If he even tries using UN troops there would be the start of WAR!
    If Governor continues with his plans there should be a tar & feather party to put the rest of anti-2nd amendment one world socialists on notice! We the People aren’t going to give another inch!

  10. 91 of 95 Virginia counties have declared themselves 2nd amendment sanctuaries! Plus a lot of cities & towns! Governor N don’t be responsible for a new Concord & Lexington!

  11. It makes me sick when anyone thinks they know more than I do about what I need! I am very concerned for the people in Virginia who are expected to give up their rights for self defense. Just who does the governor of Virginia think he is. It is rather obvious he believes he is a superior being. It is also quite obvious he believes he is much smarter than the founding fathers of our great nation. Northam is in fact trying to kindle a civil war in Virginia and the rest of our great nation! My brothers and sisters in Virginia please don’t allow this tyrant to disarm you and take away your right to defend yourself and your loved ones!
