Most Americans, even Second Amendment supporters and firearms enthusiasts don’t know the history of gun control in America and in other parts of the world. Sadly, like in a multitude of other areas, those who don’t know history are too often doomed to repeat it.
So, if you’re not familiar with it, one of the most disturbing parts of the history of gun control is that, much of the time, it was specially implemented to discriminate against ethnic minorities. For example, in U.S. history, during the last half of the 1800s, gun control was often implemented specifically to prevent the newly freed slaves from being able to take up arms to defend themselves against people who hated them just because of their skin color (you can read more about that here).
A recent lawsuit in Washington, D.C. alleges that the same kind of discrimination is still happening today to prevent African-Americans from being able to be legal gun owners. Dave Urbanski writes,
Three black men are suing Washington, D.C., alleging discrimination after district police refused to give them concealed-carry licenses, the Washington Post reported.
The suit — filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in September — claims D.C. not only wrongly said the plaintiffs have violent histories but also that it misjudged their criminal records, the paper noted. In addition, the suit says D.C. police have unreasonably refused licenses to those with minor criminal convictions and arrests with no convictions — and sometimes unfairly used their involvement in violent incidents against them, the Post said.
Maybe the Washington, D.C. municipal government had valid reasons to deny concealed-carry licenses to these individuals (if there is ever a valid reason), but, just based on the bit of information that we have, it looks like this may be a case of stereotyping individuals based on their DNA and blatantly evil discrimination.
And you’ll notice that it’s the anti-2A people doing that (The D.C. municipal government is notoriously anti-2A).
Unless these people have legitimate reasons for which they should be prevented from having firearms, they should be given their licenses immediately, and the D.C. government needs to get put in their place (which is protecting the rights of people there, not trying to control everyone).
Hello , Can I Join the Lawsuit if Possible I like to Nail Biden and those Democrats to the wall .
If the Democrats are looking to eradicate every thing with a “racist history”, when will THEY confront and apologize for its own? If racist relics of the past must come down, shouldn’t we start with the Democrat Party?
YOU WANT TO CANCEL CULTURE…START W/democrats!!
AMERICA DIDN’T PROMOTE SLAVERY..DEMS DID! It is a historical fact that every piece of wood racist legislation that was ever passed and every racist terrorist attack that was inflicted on African Americans, was initiated by members of the Democratic Party. History shows that during the past 160 years the Democratic Party legislated Jim Crow laws, Black Codes and a multitude of other laws at the state and federal level to deny African Americans their rights as citizens. Congressional records show it was Democrats that strongly opposed the passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments. These three Amendments were introduced by Republicans to abolish slavery, give citizenship to all African Americans born in the United States, and give Blacks the right to vote. Congressional records show that Democrats were opposed to passing the following laws that were introduced by Republicans to achieve civil rights for African Americans: Civil Rights Act of 1866 Reconstruction Act of 1867 Freedman Bureau Extension Act of 1866 Enforcement Act of 1870 Force Act of 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 Civil Rights Act of 1875 Civil Rights Act of 1957 Civil Rights Act of 1960 And during the 60’s many Democrats fought hard to defeat the 1964 Civil Rights Act 1965 Voting Rights Act 1972 Equal employment Opportunity Act After reviewing all of the evidence, many believe America would have never experienced racism to the degree that it has, had not the Democrats promoted it! The DDD(DUMB DUMBER demonrats) Party started with slave owners of the south. The KKK was founded and run by DEMOCRATS.DEM President Woodrow Wilson proudly showed to his Cabinet at the White House the WHITE SUPREMACIST film “Birth of a Nation” which gloried the KKK. Wilson segregated the Federal government. The KKK rose to its zenith of power and respectability because of DEM Pres. Wilson.Margaret Sanger, the secular patron saint of the DEM Party, was a rabid RACIST WHITE SUPREMACIST Eugenicist who dreamed of eliminating Blacks from the human gene pool. LIBS looove her. All but 3 of the 24 Southern DEMS, including Sen. Al Gore Sr, who for RACIST reasons voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964, remained lifelong DEMS as did most their children and grandchildren. They did not all become Right Wing Republicans. DEM Senator Robert Byrd, who Hillary called her mentor and the Conscious of the Senate,, was KKK Grand Dragon who recruited over 150 new KKK Klansmen. Republican party was founded to END SLAVERY and it did It continued through the days of LBJ and his “Great Society”. The demonrats still own slaves, that population that sucks up the welfare and other enhancements to sustain their lives with absolutely no remorse for taking unearned welfare. demonrats are desperate to keep these programs alive and increasing to enhance their voting block and make their welfare recipients dependent on them. As LBJ said at the signing of his “Great Society” legislation, “We have now secured the N vote for the next hundred years.” In other words, he made the Black/White/Red/Yellow, and Brown Population of welfare recipients slaves to them with no way out. You say I am WHITE PRIVILEGED I am a HighSchool dropout I “GET NO HANDOUTS” and “I SUCCEEDED in this GAME CALLED LIFE” by HARD WORK and PERSEVERANCE So you no what…YOU ALL CAN KMA with your racebaiting BS get up off your SORRY SORRY -SSES and make something of yourself. Break “THE demonrat STIGMA OF RACISM THEY HAVE “PUT” AMONG US!” The key to success in this world is to work hard and do what is right. Trying to forcefully take success from people and redistribute it will never work, and the harm always outweighs the good.
Cancel Culture…The Democrat Party should be CANCELED because Democrats were the Slave Owners , Democrats went to WAR with the United States , Democrats ran the KKK , Democrats passed the Jim Crow Laws and put them into affect , Democrats fought the Lynching Laws , Democrats Fought against the Civil Rights acts of 1957 and 1964 , Democrats Fought Desegregation and Today’s Democrats are STILL Fighting Desegregation by Fighting School Choice …. it is the Democrats that are the racists ….Today’s “Progressive” is Democrats are actually REGRESSIVE…. So the Democrats pushed through all sorts of laws and executive orders forcing people to stay home to avoid spreading the disease … but then they effectively exempted Black Lives Matter protestors from these rules. So apparently the purpose of the rules was to protect WHITE people from catching the disease. If black people are infected and die, that’s no problem. It would seem that black lives don’t matter after all to demoPHILES
I agree , but then they have been telling the lie that its the whites fault for so long that those that aren’t taught HISTORY think its TRUE …
If the person doesn’t have enough against them to prevent them buying a gun then the CCW should be a given.
If the cops had charged them with a felony and the DA had prosocuted and won the case then they would not be able to buy the gun.
The issue is with the police and prosocuter. Not the individual.
Gun control thro-out HISTORY has been used to control races , Native Americans , Blacks , Jews , ETC , and control people just look to the SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST country’s …
