Racist Gun Control Laws Denied Martin Luther King Jr the Right to Defend Himself

mlk statue

The basis for gun control has always been racist in nature.  It started in the South to ensure that freed slaves wouldn’t be allowed to defend themselves.

It has expanded over the years to encompass a larger range of goals such as controlling the populace at large and centralizing power within the government; can’t have those uppity peons thinking they are citizens after all.

So it should come as no surprise that in 1956 when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr applied for a concealed weapons permit in Alabama, due to his receiving constant death threats and having his house BOMBED, he was denied.

If a man like Dr. King wasn’t “worthy” to be given a concealed weapons permit then I submit that as proof that any notion of needing to ask the government for permission before exercising a right is flawed.  If a civil rights leader who promotes non-violence and is a national figure who gets death threats constantly and has attempts made on his life does not meet the measure of gaining a CCW in a state that can arbitrarily deny him his right to keep and bear arms then the states themselves should have no say in it.

This is what oppression looks like.  This is tyranny.  This is also a successful application of gun control.  

This is gun control working.  It kept guns out of the hands of a man the government wanted disarmed.  Since Dr. King wasn’t a criminal he did not illegally carry a gun.  Let gun control activists crow about  how the world is safer because Dr. King was disarmed.  That’s all gun control CAN do…disarm the law abiding; the criminals just don’t care because THEY’RE CRIMINALS and will carry anyways.

And if you think that it is incongruent for a man of peace and non violence to carry a gun it’s not.  It’s naive to think that a man who preaches non-violence must in turn be a sacrificial lamb for any racist who wants to do him and his family harm.

So in the end, Martin Luther King Jr, a black Republican pastor who preached non violence and who had quantifiable reasons to be allowed to carry concealed was denied a permit because the government said he didn’t DESERVE that right.

In 1968 an assassin took Dr. King’s life.

Another life to add to the growing number of innocent people who gun control has had a hand in killing.

You want to fight racism?  Fight gun control.  Every free man and women should be allowed to defend themselves and their families from threats and oppression; it’s been 151 years since the emancipation proclamation…isn’t it about time that all people were allowed to exercise their rights freely regardless of the color of their skin?

    These blue states have no right to ask for a why or what or who. Only a libtard would ask for reason for what the second Clearly guarentees .

    Of course gun control is racist, look at Chicago, Black on black violent crime is out of control, you would think letting honest people protect themselves would be the battle cry of the people, no just give more money to the corrupt politicians, they know what is best for the little people…..

    Sadly a CCW permit would not have helped Dr. King as he was taken out with a rifle from a
    coward. A gun would not have helped Ronal Regan when he was attacked and shot with
    a .22 pistol from close range. An assassin can be at long range or up close to carry out
    their assigned task by either a pistol, Rifle or a bomb vest. There are so many way the
    it is difficult for those assigned to protect someone to keep them completely safe from all
    events

      The 2nd Amendment don’t guarantee life it guarantees your Right to defend yourself your family and property. That right is given by God not government. But government has become so use to playing God they have forgotten their place, and we the people have allowed it for way too long

    Just go to JPFO (Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership) and watch the video “No Guns For Negros”. This is a good documentary of the problem. You can buy the video there also.

    The author is exactly correct, gun control was an attempt at keeping guns out of the hands of the newly freed slaves and was started as a result of the Emancipation Proclamation. What is not said is that it also was an attempt at keeping guns out of the hands of other minorities as well, the American Indians and the Chinese workers that put most of the railroads on the tracks. There is a history of government wanting to control, and the scope of that control grows all the time, until finally we are all controlled by the government elites, somewhat like that in those areas of the world that were not established as Constitutional Republics, (although ours is now going down as well).

    And guess what party was in control at that time….the Democrats who were vehemently fighting any kind of equal rights for the black man….they were the KKK and it is time that the black Americans of this country know that the Democrats are not their friends, that the Democrats have tried to keep them enslaved since the civil war.

      The blacks cant see the racism the democraps subject them to thru the free stuff they are given to keep them playcated. All they know is republicans hate them because the mass media owned by liberals spews these lies 24/7

    An example how gun control laws worked. Following the firebombing of his house in 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was, among other things, a Christian minister, applied for a gun permit, but the Alabama Democratic authorities found him unsuitable. And a decade later, he won a Nobel Peace Prize.

    The NRA (National Rifle Association) opposed these discretionary gun permit laws and proceeded to grant NRA charters to blacks who sought to defend themselves from Klan violence — including the great civil rights hero and World War II veteran, Robert F. Williams.

    Williams got a charter from the NRA in 1957, became the chapter President and founded the Black Armed Guard with a membership over 200.

    The NRA’s proud history of fighting the Klan has been removed from history by those who were complicit with the KKK, Jim Crow laws and racial terror, in other words: the Democrats.

    In this case, a CCP would not have saved Dr. King. But it’s the principle of the thing. But the sadder part is 95% of the Blacks will NEVER realize that the Democraps are their enemy, not the Republicans. That’s a big-g-g part of why our country is totally intercoursed.
