The Second Amendment Was Primarily To Enforce The Slavery Regime (Yep, they went there!)
Black Star News - New York's Leading Investigative Newspaper ^ | February 24, 2013 | Ezrah Aharone

With just 27 words in 1791, America's Second Amendment paved a blood-drenched trail for legal access to modern-day weapons used in videogame-like fashion to gun-down fellow citizens, military style.

Now, after all the mass carnage of 222 years of "Freedom to Bear Arms" – with a murder-count so high that only God can accurately tally – there's a sudden political epiphany for urgent "gun control" to ostensibly curb the curse of innocent slayings.

Given however an estimated 300 million legal guns, compounded by ever-rising volumes of illegal guns that already saturate society uncontrollably, the notion of "gun control" equates somewhat to "closing the barn door after the horse is gone."

All of the adverse consequences and uncivilized behavior associated with this so-called "freedom," begs the question – What was the original function and intent of arming citizens that made the constitutional framers appear so wise in the first place?

Conventional logic suggests that early-Americans obviously needed guns to hunt and protect themselves in the wilds. Also, as a newly formed republic, arms were presumed necessary to defend the preciousness of America's democracy from possible tyranny. Although such reasoning seems practical and plausible, there is an unpopular but overriding truth about "bearing arms" that's deeply affixed to defending another of America's preciousness – institutionalized slavery.

Bluntly put, the Second Amendment traces to a historical period when bullets and bibles were necessary to forcibly control and psychologically manipulate huge swaths of enslaved populations that eventually exceeded four million, which the same constitution openly repudiates the humanity thereof as further proof.

Contrary to "defending freedom," the looming threats of uprisings due to "denying freedom" to Africans and Native Americans, posed America's greatest domestic security concern at that time....

Dregs as professors. No wonder the young skulls full of mush leave college with little to no knowledge. Actually I’ve known quite a few PhD’s over the years. Some brilliant and others that couldn’t put a sentence together. But you can find that in a lot of places. Managers that are clueless and useless that you just have to work around and only feed the info that they absolutely had to know. Nothing else. (Made me believe I would have no problem getting a PhD if I wanted it.

The real truth is different. Historians normally date the start of slavery in the North American colonies to 1619. That year the crew of the Dutch ship was starving, and as John Rolfe noted in a letter to the Virginia Company’s treasurer Edwin Sandys, the Dutch traded 20 African slaves for food and supplies. Slaves of African descent and white indentured servants often worked, socialized and even ran away from their masters together. But by the end of the 17th century, the colony became more reliant on slave labor as the number of British and Europeans willing to indenture themselves declined and as the leaders of the colony feared uprisings among the poor, landless whites.

The first slave owner in America was Johnson, a Black man. Slavery was a world wide institution which we inherited from the immigrants.....but, I am being a little bit of a “revisionist” for the American Indians had slaves before we ever got there. America was already a slave nation before white man ever set foot on the place. Or, wait a minute, wasn’t the first people in America Caucasians—Kennewick man????

This whole demonization of groups of people is Marxist. To divide so they can destroy us. We are all Americans-—we need to unite-—not divide-—we all have done evil things in the past, but when “ideas” are the basis of Truth (God)—like in America—the Truth should win out-—but Leftists/Atheists/pagans are far more inhumane than any other groups, and are taking over the USSA and forcing this Marxist stuff into the schools to destroy cohesion and Love (Christianity).

Marxism is all Lies! Everything Marxists write is warped and twisted lies to make people hate each other. The are like cockroaches to Light-—when they are forced with the Truth.

It is why Marxists created Political Correctness——to shut down debate because debate is how you get to Truth.

I could not have said it any better my Oregon brother.
Kennewick Man’s skull size and shape that he was not directly related to modern-day Native Americans. He was most similar to the Moriori, a Polynesian people in the Chatham Islands, near New Zealand. He is also like the Moriori’s ancestors, the Ainu, who lived in coastal areas of mainland Asia 15,000 years ago. Keep your powder dry.

As i recall the Redcoats came here to enforce their sugar tax, tea tax, stamp tax, etc.

They also did what they could to stifle free speech written or spoken.

They conspired to confiscate arms and gunpowder without due process or a warrant.

They quartered Redcoat soldiers with no recompense.

They taxed without representation.

They set bail at unreasonable ceilings that amounted to excessive punishment and they tortured citizens.

That is what the fight was about and the 2nd Amendment deckares the inalienable right to keep and bear for the specific purpose of protecting the The Constitution and the Bill if Rights.

The Red coats never made demand to end slavery but, for the sake of your idiotic argument if it were about slavery and slaves eventually freed themselves by obtaining arms, wouldn’t that be a good thing?

Or did 600,000 whites and blacks using all the horrors of war to end slavery, including the use of guns, die in vain for specious attempt at intellectual vanity that is as vacuous as it inane?

You’re to stupid to know because if you did know how contrived and synthetic your gravely moronic supposition is, then you’d be smart

I have heard this referred to as “cultural Marxism”. Marxism itself is a big lie from the pit of hell. Marxism tries to replace God with government, so it will always be opposing Truth with a capital “T”.

“....we have all done evil things in the past....”

I believe if we traced our lineage back far enough all of us would
find both slaves and slave masters among our ancestors.

To understand the Second Amendment one needs to look no
further then The Federalist 46 by James Madison.

If you cannot weave racism or sexism into absolutely every
aspect of society then what would there be left to teach in
all the ethnic and women’s studies departments throughout
the nation’s university system?

Makes sense to me at least in a lot of areas, but over all i think it makes it a lot easier for the police to ride rough shod over any neighborhood if no one has weapons to defend them selves

The vast majority of folks are not going to defend them selves against the police regardless of how well they are armed, on average the black people may be more willing to do so but that is just a guess.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.


Slavery is part of what our founders were against but it is ridicules to believe they would start the war by freeing the slaves.

How much help would they have gotten from the people who owned slaves?

They would have lost the war, period.

That's where gun control is now. My post was about where it began. Actually I think gun control now is about nationwide and worldwide subjugation not mere policing control of neighborhoods.

Yeah, i believe policing neighborhoods is where it started, and that is why i can believe it had a lot to do with the black people.

At the same time i believe that was just an excuse for the pro gun control agenda, every thing the socialists do has always made sense to people who puts security ahead of every thing else.

people most likely did not think of them selves as being socialist but it is pretty evident that some people
did believe in the socialist ideals long before 1870.

Benjamin Franklin quotes.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.


Franklin said those things in spite of the fact that he also had socialist views on some things, for instance, government funded hospitals, free of charge health care.

True but that’s irrelevant to the genesis of gun control. It is very well established that the first gun control laws were made specifically to keep freed slaves from owning guns so they couldn’t fight back against the KKK.

No,i was talking about the 1970s an 80s which makes your argument about 130 years late, and i do not doubt there may have been laws to that affect.

The kkk who were also democrats who fought tooth and nail to keep the blacks in slavery would do any thing to keep the blacks from being able to protect them selves, now they are trying to make slaves in the form of peons out of every one, and this is much bigger than the kkk.

So instead of trying to make this gun control thing a racist issue why can,t you see what it really is? why are,nt you willing to fight for my freedom the way my ancestors fought and died for your freedom.

It is really hard for me to believe that a half million people died in vain to free a people who do not want to be free.

What argument? I stated a simple fact. The first gun control laws in the country were post-Civil War, made by southern Democrats aimed at keeping blacks disarmed. What you saw or did in the 1970s and 1980s in AZ has no bearing on that. I'm not trying to make "this gun control thing" anything at all much less a racist thing. It is what it is.

The videos I posted, made by black Americans, explain very well how current Dem gun control policy is still aimed at blacks and other minorities. Nowhere did I say that was the only reason for gun control.

Ok, that makes me feel better, when they come to my house with their machine guns and armored cars or maybe even tanks i can just give the stupid Hitler looking idiots a smile and say leave me alone I am white, you think that will get me by?

Also i do not at all agree with the title of the orginal thread.
