Published

Yahoo News reports that the rapper Killer Mike says that he does not trust presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Cory Booker on the issue of gun control.

BLP reported on Harris’ desire to use executive action to implement gun control and Booker’s new gun control program which would require extensive licensing and bans so-called “assault weapons.”

Killer Mike, whose real name is Michael Render, told Yahoo News “I don’t trust black leadership that wants to de-arm black people.”

He cites gun violence in his Newark community as his primary motivation for taking up the issue.

Booker told CNN host Jake Tapper in May, “In my community, kids fear fireworks on the Fourth of July because they sound like gunshots.”

He added, “In communities across the country, from Newark to Charlotte, from San Diego to Chicago, and everywhere in between, Americans are being killed and families are being torn apart. We must do better.”

However, Render has a different view on the issue.

As a member of the National African American Gun Association and a firm believer in the right to bear arms, he has pushed for black firearms ownership as a civil rights issue. He contends that many of America’s violence issues could be prevented if gun ownership was equally respected in America from the time of its founding all the way up until the present.

Render argued that “If everyone owned guns from day one, it would have been a lot harder to commit acts like slavery and genocide on Native Americans.”

The rapper then cited the case of the book Guns, Germs and Steel to demonstrate his point:

“If you read the book ‘Guns, Germs and Steel,’ it kind of explains to you, you know, why a lot of the wars indigenous people lost was because people came with superior technology and guns.”

Render understands how gun control laws negatively affect African Americans.

Render declared, “Gun laws affect black people first and worst.”

He then cited investigative journalist and civil rights leader Ida B. Wells who was famous for saying that “a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give” in the face of lynchings that African Americans were confronting throughout the late 19th century.

The history of black gun ownership is generally glossed over these days by public schools.

But it has a tradition grounded in liberty and self-defense against nefarious actors.

Sadly, this kind of history has fallen by the wayside during the last few decades.

Nevertheless, groups such as Black Guns Matter have helped revive this tradition and are opening up new conversations in urban areas where pro-gun activists have not succeeded in the past.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
