The Infamous ‘Dred Scott’ Decision Was Largely About Preventing Blacks From Owning Guns
Dailywire


quote:

the mainstream media have uniformly overlooked a key feature of that grave miscarriage of justice: the decision was rendered in large part to prevent blacks from owning guns. Politico correctly observes that Dred Scott is “widely regarded as one of the Supreme Court’s worst decisions” and “an egregious example of seeking to impose a judicial solution to a political problem,” but it fails to articulate the civil rights central to that political problem.



quote:

, Taney knew, “would give to persons of the negro race, who were recognised as citizens in any one State of the Union, the right … to keep and carry arms wherever they went … endangering the peace and safety of the State.” The Civil War resolved that dispute. Democrats, displeased by the war’s conclusion, spent the next century attempting to deprive freed men of their dearly won, constitutionally protected civil rights in part by enacting and expanding the nation’s first gun control laws. These regulations aimed specifically to disarm liberated blacks, who knew too well the urgency of the Second Amendment.

California banned open carry because the Black Panthers were open carrying.

North Carolina implemented a pistol permit to hinder blacks from owning guns.

Gun control has a super racist history.

It's simple logic. No group or race would allow themselves to be subjugated as slaves if they were armed.

The elephant in the room is how gun control would disproportionately leave minorities at risk.

Many of these people live in gang infested hot zones, and need protection more than the average joe six pack NRA member.

The NRA has preached this over and over again and stood up both the Southside of Chicago and South Central L.A. as prime examples ... but to no avail.

Why, because the lure of welfare, entitlement programs, and claims of government protection far outweigh the desire to really be free.

Thus blacks, as a whole, have chosen to remain slaves to some degree.

Now, that does not apply to all blacks as TBird proudly demonstrates with his post above about his parents ... but, as a whole and especially in the Northeast, Midwest and California, this proves itself to be true.

I do believe a lot of Black Americans are waking up to the reality that the left is a sham with regard to their overall welfare. Democrats, especially in their current configuration and under their leadership since the early sixties, have used Black Americans for votes and given them very little sustainable improvements to their lives in return.

This is new - when did Politico start caring about this?

I think you can describe it more succinctly as 'urban areas' - hell, even Jackson Mississippi is infected with the urban underclass blight. Urban areas are controlled by the elite who live in their gated enclaves and are best served by a large vulnerable, hopeless, mal-educated population who look to them for their daily sustenance.

If you look at district-level election results you see the DEM controlled areas resting in exclusively urban islands in a sea of red - where 'normal' people live.

Normal = non-elite, middle class, wage earners. i.e. the soul and spine of the nation.

DEMs fit every definition of racism. They actually believe that blacks cannot provide for themselves on a level playing field - cannot plan their own futures - cannot compete on an intellectual level - cannot be trusted to determine their own self-interest - cannot function in a nuclear family dominant society - cannot benefit from real educational pursuits - must be tended like a tomato plant.

Based on Chicago’s black-on-black murder rate, this clearly didn’t work.

But Jackson, MS does not have the anti-2A policies that those other places I mentioned do ... nor does Jackson have the total population measured in terms of millions.

Dred Scott was a horrible decision that spun the likelihood of a future Civil War into overdrive.

Plessy v Ferguson was just as bad legally speaking. Justice Harlan in dissent:

Our constitution is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens. In respect of civil rights, all citizens are equal before the law. The humblest is the peer of the most powerful. The law regards man as man, and takes no account of his surroundings or of his color when his civil rights as guaranteed by the supreme law of the land are involved. It is therefore to be regretted that this high tribunal, the final expositor of the fundamental law of the land, has reached the conclusion that it is competent for a state to regulate the enjoyment by citizens of their civil rights solely upon the basis of race.

In my opinion, the judgment this day rendered will, in time, prove to be quite as pernicious as the decision made by this tribunal in the Dred Scott Case.

Correct thought. That is the basis for the 2nd amendment. To keep the citizenry from becoming slaves to the government. It has nothing to due with keeping burglars away or hunting.

With all the freedoms that the government has chipped away at from us for the last 50 years can you imagine what they would do if we didnt have the ability to fight back if necessary.
