"[American blacks] should visit the histories of other tyrant nations where we had people like Hitler and Stalin and Mao." - Star Parker
One of the conservative movement's rising stars has just released a public service video citing the long history of gun control in America, and how it has adversely effected the black community, as reported by Cybercast News Service on Mar. 1, 2013.
Republican activist and founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), Star Parker has released a video entitled "Never Again" in which she illustrates the correlation between gun control on both the state and federal level, and the often violent oppression of blacks during the history of America.
Under what were once referred to as the Black Codes, various laws were in place which outlawed blacks from owning firearms and ammunition.
Adducing a possible shape of things to come for all Americans, Parker's video warning shows an innocent and unarmed man being drug from his bed in the dark of night by unknown assailants, only to be hung to death on a tree. (See video)
As the video continues, the on-screen text rolls:
"Gun control is not a new idea in America.
A call for background checks invokes painful memories of Jim Crow and black codes."
At a Washington, DC event defending the 2d Amendment, Parker stated:
"There are a lot of African Americans and people of color in Congress who are backing Obama’s plan for gun control.
What would you say to them because today [at this event] it was revealed that there is a direct effect on the African American community with this gun control?
Well, I'd say they need to revisit their history – black history, black slave history, black Jim Crow history – and they should visit the histories of other tyrant nations where we had people like Hitler and Stalin and Mao.
Every single time there is someone who wants to take away all other rights of the people, the first right they take away is your right to bear arms."
Bruce A. Clark of OldYankee.com has chronicled key points in history where government has legally denied Americans of African heritage as well as poor whites of their right to keep and bear arms.
- 1831 Delaware law that freed blacks could own weapons, but only if authorized via a court order.
- 1907 Texas "'Saturday Night Special' economic handgun ban. Placed 'extremely heavy business and/or transactional taxes' on the sale of handguns in an attempt 'to put handguns out of the reach of blacks and poor whites.' (Gun Control: White Man’s Law, William R. Tonso, Reason, December 1985)"
- 1994 Federal law in which the "President seeks to single out all poor citizens residing in federal housing for gun ban. The Clinton Administration introduced H. R. 3838 in 1994 to ban guns in federal public housing, but the House Banking Committee reject edit. Similar legislation was filed in 1994 in the Oregon and Washington state legislatures."
