Is the Government Still Racist?

Is the Government Still Racist?

Is the Government Still Racist?

Over the years, the United States government has done some despicable things to people. We have the murder and relocation of the Native Americans. We have slavery, the Japanese internment camps, and the persecution of numerous religious groups.

And with yesterday being Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and with the current gun control legislation, I was thinking about the roots of gun control laws, which most Americans aren’t aware of.

The fact is, gun control laws were born out of racism. White people were afraid that blacks would “overthrow them” so the government (controlled by white people) passed a series of laws to keep guns out of the hands of blacks.

For instance, after Nat Turner’s rebellion in 1831, the Tennessee Constitution was changed to read, “That the free white men of this State have a right to keep and to bear arms for their common defence.”

And the judiciary of North Carolina stated…

“That if any free negro, mulatto, or free person of color, shall wear or carry about his or her person, or keep in his or her house, any shot gun, musket, rifle, pistol, sword, dagger or bowie-knife, unless he or she shall have obtained a licence therefor from the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of his or her county, within one year preceding the wearing, keeping or carrying therefor, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and may be indicted therefor.”

Now, I don’t have to tell you that most blacks weren’t granted a license back then (whites didn’t have to apply for any type of license.) The thing is, it’s scary to realize that not much has changed over the years in certain states. For example, it’s extremely difficult to get a concealed carry permit from a “may issue” state, such as California. In California, the local police chief grants the concealed carry permits.

And guess what?

In California, the majority of concealed carry permits are granted to white people. Now, I’m not saying that all police chiefs in California are racist. However, because it’s a “may issue” state, the police chief gets to look over and approve the application. You ever think a chief gets an application and he denies it because he doesn’t like the way a person looks or that maybe they have tattoos and that rubs them the wrong way?

In “shall issue” states, such as Virginia, the state must grant the permit if you pass the qualifications and background check. This means there is nothing influencing a police chief or sheriff’s decision to issue someone a permit.

The bottom line is, gun control is just plain evil. Whether it’s whites in the government trying to keep guns out of the hands of minorities or it’s Hitler trying to disarm a nation, to which he said, The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms.”

    The author here is sounding an awful lot like extreme leftist actor Danny Glover who recently asserted the same thing, being the origins of present day gun laws are race based from the past. While there is no doubt there was a fear on the part of southern states in particular that blacks at the time might rise up in anger against them, that fear proved to be largely unfounded as history also reflects. Northern opportunists and our own government took far more advantage of those southerners in the post-civil war era than those slaves ever did!

    I would simply say that very few current police chiefs in “may issue” states are going to hand over firearm permits to gang members or problematic people of ANY flavor! You very much seem to be implying that the reason whites are not getting permits now is because of some historical fear of people of color and that simply isn’t true and you should know better.

    Tons of white Americans are equally being denied their constitutional rights simply because big city mayors are illegally trying to ursurp our Constitution. They are not targeting those of color in their anti-gun bias . . . they are denying ALL Americans their Second Amendment rights. Jason this is NOT a race issue. It may have been over a hundred years ago but we can’t continue to blame that as the reason for what’s going on today. This is a civil, human and American rights issue for ALL of us! Let’s try and keep our eye on the ball.

    Why are you still allowed to post on this site Jason? You lend nothing to the discussion. You do not help or teach. You are clearly posting these subpar posts to further yourself not the cause. Go away.

    iefs in California are racist. However, because it’s a “may issue” state, the police chief gets to look over and approve the application.

    Go to youtube and type in “no guns for blacks” from jpfo.
    It deals with this issue in depth.
    I don’t agree entirely with it, however.

    Oh, c’mon now! I enjoyed learning about the difference between “may carry” and “shall carry”, and I agreee, it is quite likely that permits have been denied that should not have been, because of some bias on the part of the issuing authority….but to then say that “all gun control is evil” is a bit of a stretch…I believe the right to own guns should NEVER be infringed, but I also think that “well regulated” means just that….requiring background checks is just common sense, and nowhere near the “evil” that you suggest.
