Condoleezza Rice and Guns in the Civil Rights Movement

History cannot be rewritten to suit your agenda, we cannot deny the Holocaust and we cannot deny the racist roots of gun control schemes.

To say that the African-Americans, who lived through the civil rights movement in the South, did not have or use firearms to protect themselves and their families is simply disingenuous.

In her book, published in 2010, aimed at middle schoolers “Condoleezza Rice: A Memoir of My Extraordinary, Ordinary Family and Me” about her life and growing up in Birmingham, Alabama. She recounts how her father “sat on the porch with his gun in his lap” and how “Daddy and the men of the neighborhood formed a watch” she then goes on tho say “Had my father and his neighbors registered their weapons, Bull Connor surely would have confiscated them or worse.” This, and more, is all on page 94 of her book.

If you haven’t watched the excellent video “No Guns for Negroes” now is the time. What better time than during Black History Month.

    Another valuable point in this discussion is the fact that GCA 68 was intentionally drafted after Nazi gun control laws. The current “no sporting purpose” mantra has no legitimate place. The second amendment was not about sports, or even about crime per se. It was about freedom from oppressive government. Oh, you mean like now? When the government passes obama care and forces us to buy a product. Or When the batfe is allowed, with no vote of congress, to make gun laws. Or When our government, whose sole function is to protect the public, allows a war on our southern border to go un-prosecuted. Or how about when the batfe “walks” guns south to make the american gun crime numbers look higher, then arms cartels with guns that kill a border patrol agent. Or how about ICE checkpoints that abuse American citizens deep within the country, who have id, but refuse to stop illegals at the border? We need our guns now more than ever. Freedom isn’t free and our government is an over bearing tyrant. What would Thomas Jefferson and his boys say about this mess now? I bet Adolf Hitler would smile at out situation.

    Sadly, we have folks like Chicago Police Superintendent McCarthy, claiming “Federal gun laws… facilitate the flow of illegal firearms into our urban centers… that are killing black and brown children”, as well as the Representative to the WI house from Milwaukee who “doesn’t think” that allowing attendees of the city’s Juneteenth celebration to be armed is “a good idea”, and promote the continued disarmament of the law abiding citizen instead of holding the blame where it belongs, with the criminal.

    These folks use “history” to justify their anti-gun positions, but are ignorant of the real history that has taken place, and the fact that “gun control” keeps the folks they claim to speak for in a state of compulsory victimhood.

  8. I have experienced a strong sober man driven perfectly mad for the time being by
    two glasses of so-called rum, supplied to him at one of these shanties.

    Father arrived in Melbourne a really sick man, anf the husband
    immediately underwent treatment by specialists for his throat trouble.
    Neighbours were few and far between, and there were only
    three other women living in the neighbourhood – all lived in a choice of bark huts or tents
    making use of their young children.

    You can observe the latest weather updates by simply taking a look into your phone’s home screen, where it automatically posts weather info, and
    all without having to launch the application. Just must be link is on Piratebay doesn’t
    imply that the users are installing, and therefore, the
    flawed data. We’ll start our tour at Marina Grande for the north shore in
    the island, about one third of the way in looking at the easternmost
    point.
