The Second Amendment Foundation launched a new initiative to remind Americans that gun rights override any physical characteristics such as skin color. SAF says all Americans must be able to practice their Second Amendments without being held back by racial barriers.
“The Second Amendment is color-blind,” said Alan M. Gottlieb, SAF founder, and Executive Vice President. “No law-abiding citizen should ever be denied the right to purchase a firearm or get a license to carry due to the color of their skin.”
Gottlieb said the launch of the project was inspired by the heated debate on racism surrounding the recent events in the country. He added that there had been an increasing interest in firearm ownership by the minorities.
“History has taught us that oppressive gun control has its roots in racism,” Gottlieb added.
He remarked that the various racial codes that prevented black people from owning firearms were wrong then as they are now. Gottlieb indicated that if the Second Amendment supporters failed to unite regardless of their racial backgrounds, their constitutional rights were at risk.
“We want to make sure this sort of social bigotry never rears its ugly head again,” SAF president said. “At the end of the day, if all gun owners don’t stand together, the Second Amendment will almost certainly fall apart.”
He promised that the organization’s attorneys were ready to assist anybody being denied their constitutional rights because of the color of their skin.
“The Foundation will have our attorneys get involved to protect the Second Amendment rights of all Americans, especially minorities who are being discriminated against.”
Various African American second amendment activists have been encouraging the community to embrace firearm ownership. Doing so will eventually erode the left’s racial narrative on gun ownership.
The Left associates gun ownership with racism to guilt-trip white people and dissuade them from owning firearms. They also use the racial narrative to create a taboo surrounding gun ownership by African Americans. Dismantling the “white men with guns” narrative is a crucial step in winning the psychological war against gun control.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
