Isn’t it time to detach the 2nd Amendment from politics? Having the freedom to defend yourself is a fundamental right. Don’t we all agree on that? Who wants to see innocent law abiding Americans live life in fear of crime because the government has taken away their fundamental right to defend themselves? The political climate is perfect right now for politicians to stand up for 2nd Amendment rights for all Americans. Nobody is buying the anti-gun spin and lies anymore. It is time for a real change.
You may have heard news about a new video that has surfaced of Attorney General Eric Holder plotting to change the way people think about guns. Most of the gun news website have been buzzing about it this week, but so far I have yet to find anyone who doesn’t totally miss the point. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Eric Holder is part of the liberal anti-2nd Amendment machine, and that he is just one more of President Obama’s appointees that are completely out of touch with mainstream America. If you actually watch the video though. It will show you how black leaders have become racist, and that black leaders like Eric Holder just plain old don’t trust law abiding black people with guns. Black leaders have created a subculture of disarming victims in the black community, and this has got to stop.
You will have to sit through a brief commercial in order to view this 1995 video from Breitbart, but it is well worth it. Holder is clearly pandering to a black audience in the video. He claims to occasionally watch “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Martin,” both TV shows with a black main character. Then he goes on to say that he reached out to Jesse Jackson and Mayor Barry, both strongly recognized black leaders, to help him with his campaign. He wants to “brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way” and claims that he will be reaching out to entertainers, athletes, and even school boards to spread his anti-gun message.
He doesn’t of course mention that both Will Smith, from the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and Martin Lawrence, from “Martin,” have been in numerous movies pointing guns at other human beings. Thankfully both have for the most part played “good guys,” and even starred in two movies together as Miami police officers, but gun violence is gun violence, and all of Hollywood has profited from promoting it. The Hollywood hypocrisy with gun violence is only a shadow of the overall coupling of liberal politics to anti-gun policies. Throughout history, disarming the victim has always led to more crime, more victims, and even full-fledged genocide. More guns equals less crime and an insurance policy on freedom. All American should support the spread of law abiding gun ownership.

It covers this topic extensively and you will understand just how deep this problem runs, and what are its origins.|
I don’t know if politicians like Eric Holder understand the difference between a criminal and a law abiding citizen. They don’t seem to, that’s for sure. Black people, like all other divisions you can make based on race, are for the most part, law abiding Americans. They are protected by the Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution like all other Americans, and that in Article 2 of that document, all law abiding Americans have a right to keep and bear arms. The 2nd Amendment isn’t about hunting. It isn’t about target shooting. It isn’t about enjoying a hobby. It is about being able to protect yourself and defend your life and the lives of your loved ones. No matter what the race of a population, the good guys outnumber the bad guys. Disarming the good guys makes the bad guys more powerful. Doesn’t Eric Holder understand that this was the intent of the 2nd Amendment? Guns are not like cigarettes as it claims in the video. Guns protect and defend lives every day, far more than they cause harm, and the message about gun violence should be one about criminal violence, not about guns.
Granted, the Heller and McDonald decisions from the US Supreme Court had not been handed down in 1995, so he may have mistakenly believed that the 2nd Amendment didn’t apply to individuals, but I didn’t see him come out this week with any conciliatory statements that he was mistaken in 1995. He apparently still believes the things he said in the video. And he apparently thinks that “brainwashing” law abiding citizens to forget that they have a right to protect themselves is something that children should be taught in school every day. Don’t law abiding black people have a right to shoot back, or even to shoot first, when someone points a gun at them in anger? The rest of America does. Are politics that important to people like Eric Holder that he can’t see it is time to change the message?
If you can put media and politics aside for a minute, and just think about the current state of those people in the cities that Holder is speaking to in the video, is there any reason to not change the message twelve years later in 2012? If you go by the numbers from the Brady Campaign website (the most violently anti-gun organization in the country), almost all black homicides are committed with a gun. If we assume that nearly all of these are not justified legal shootings, extrapolate this to mean that nearly all black homicides are committed by a criminal with a gun. Why disarm the victims Mr. Holder? Isn’t it enough already? Do black leaders really believe that inner city black voters are still believing this shtick? Or is it about campaign dollars?
|The defining book on gun violence is More Guns Less Crime by John Lott. The Brady Campaign is afraid to meet this guy in an open debate because they make up their numbers and Lott uses actual government statistics. It is a dry but very compelling book.|
The pro-gun, 2nd Amendment community has been up in arms about this video mostly because of Eric Holder’s suspected involvement in “Operation Fast & Furious. ” They see it as some kind of proof that he was out to get us all along, as if there was any doubt of a secret anti-gun agenda in the Obama administration after the President himself said that they had things working behind the scenes. I don’t see this Eric Holder speech like that. This was a political stump speech to a biased audience and he pandered to them with what they expected. The people who should be furious are the people he was speaking to, the people trapped in the inner cities who have been completely disarmed.
Anti-gun “brainwashing” has created a situation where the people most effected by criminals with guns have been the disarmed the most. Inner cities and just about every urban area of the country have “tougher” gun laws, but the real question is “tough on who?” The gun laws are tough on victims, not criminals. Criminals will always have a way to get acquire means to threaten and hurt people. It is what they do, and with all the millions of guns in America and our porous borders, even if a gun could not legally be sold in America ever again, the bad guys would have access to guns indefinitely, while the victims would be slowly disarmed. Brainwashing law abiding Americans, of any color, to give up their 2nd Amendment right is just creating more victims.
It is time for a change Mr. Holder. The current political climate is very much pro-gun and pro-2nd Amendment. Gun sales are at record levels, and it looks like we are on our way back into an ammo shortage. This would be the perfect time, politically, for politicians on both sides of the isle to step up and detach the 2nd Amendment from political agendas. We are all Americans. We all deserve the opportunity to protect our own lives and the lives of our loved ones, as well as the opportunity to hunt, target shoot and enjoy firearms without fear of breaking ridiculous laws that only create more victims.
Regardless of race, color, creed, religion and everything else, most of us are capable of being law abiding and responsible gun owners. Even the craftiest politician who licks his finger and sticks it in the air to see which way the wind is blowing should know that in today’s climate, the smartest decision you can make politically is to support the 2nd Amendment and gun freedom. It is time to stop disarming people in the inner cities and leaving them helpless against crime and gun violence. Arm the victims and they will no longer be victims. This administration ran on a platform of “change.” We can stop senseless gun violence in our inner cities. It is just going to take a real change.
