'Never Again' Campaign Launched: Gun Control Has Historic Roots in Disarming Blacks
cnsnews ^ | March 1, 2013 | Penny Starr

Posted on 03/01/2013 9:46:16 PM PST by Rabin

The Second Amendment of the Constitution is a right for all Americans, including blacks, to protect themselves and their families from both private and public violence... If the "Never Again" video is disturbing, that is the point. The idea is to educate people about a dark part of the nation’s history when African-Americans were unable to defend themselves because of gun control laws...part of the Mississippi Black Code in 1865 said, “No freedman, Negro, or mulatto shall carry or keep firearms or ammunition,” ... “Gun control is unacceptable in America. Never again.” Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE).

As a matter of fact, gun control was used to disarm Indians. More accurately, to prevent the Indians from obtaining firearms.

.***part of the Mississippi Black Code in 1865 said, “No freedman, Negro, or mulatto shall carry or keep firearms or ammunition,”***

Dred Scott vs Sanford.

What the SCOTUS thought about gun control in the pre Civil War era.

http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0060_0393_ZO.html

“It would give to persons of the negro race, who were recognised as citizens in any one State of the Union,

the right to enter every other State whenever they pleased, singly or in companies, without pass or passport, and without obstruction,

to sojourn there as long as they pleased, to go where they pleased at every hour of the day or night without molestation, unless they committed some violation of law for which a white man would be punished;

and it would give them the full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak; to hold public meetings upon political affairs,

and to KEEP AND CARRY ARMS wherever they went”.

Didn't SCOTUS rule in Heller v DC that nobody had that right outside their home?

My first thought was when the Governor of California was upset when the Black Panthers did their parades, sat on the steps of the State Capitol, etc. with their firearms on display. IIRC he said something like “This isn’t the Wild West anymore”. So he asked for (and got) the law banning open carry of loaded weapons.

The governor of course was Ronald Reagan.

Rab”

Same as it always does. The gun controlled are at the mercy of the gun controllers.

Ask the Indians about gun control.

I thought it asserted the right for in-home, but neglected to extend the decision on out-of-home.Another SCOTUS circle-jerk where they addressed a very finite bit of info and did not take it to its logical conclusion.

Untrue for the Iroquois whose 1763 colonial, 1795 New York State and Fed ratified treaties gave them right to have firearms on the reservation forever.

They are fully armed to the teeth for over 200 years. They can actually bring arms across the Canadian border without restriction because the reservation is on both sides. At the present moment under Cumonista`s SAFE act the Mohawks have more rights than everyone else in the state coz they are protected by Federal treaty & State Treaty which abrogate anything the State of NY tries to do to disarm them. If you think 10,000 Second Amendment rally in Albany was something, wait until Cuominista`s Commies try to disarm the First Nation. Warpath? Warpath-

You say you ain`t seen nothin` yet.

The Revolution ??? It may start At Akwesasne

You are correct, but this is the net effect of both Heller and McDonald.

My greatest frustration is that the 2A is probably the least defended constitutional right we have and SCOTUS knows this and did little to add some guidance here.

I’ve often wondered why Indian reservations don’t open a gun shop with their smoke shops. They would get even more business if they sold guns, ammo and magazines in NY, Kalifornia, and other anti-gun states.

I remember when that happened.

I believe they could have passed a better law against carrying for the purpose of intimidation instead of a blanket law against carrying.

Most blacks don’t care. They’ve got Obama in the White House, EBT’s in their pocket, and Obamaphones on their ear. What do they care about freedom? They can carry a gun no matter what! They will still be carrying if every gun is the country is confiscated! Because they are a protected class in this country.

Heller specifically did not address any behavior outside the home.

Heller specifically did not address any behavior outside the home.

You are correct, they weren't even asked to address it, but due to certain language and SCOTUS giving very little guidance, many folks, especially anti-gunners either believe or are purposely trying to make the case the 2A doesn't extend beyond the home. This issue also wasn't addressed in McDonald.

The 2A is the least defended right we have and the court has the ability to add some lines of scrutiny.

The antis will construe anything as anti-2nd which isn’t explicitly incontrovertibly pro.

Amount to anything?
Maybe you haven’t heard they amount to a lot, already.
