Good discussion tonight on Glenn Beck TV about blacks and gun control. The first gun law restricting 2nd amendment rights was in the 1830s for free blacks in the north. Then after the Civil War for freed black slaves. In the pre-war South, slaves were allowed to use guns (for protection of the plantation and the owner), but freed slaves were not. The KKK was the terrorist arm of the Democrat party, and when black farmers were deprived of their guns, there was no way to resist. Also, Martin Luther King, Jr. was denied a conceal carry permit. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control, as black Americans have learned.
Star Parker, one of Glenn’s guests, said the policy of the Democrat party for blacks is still to keep them uneducated, unarmed and dependent, just as post-Civil War days.
