Is Gun Control Racist?

Thanks to

The Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership have a video out detailing the racist origins of gun control in the United States. In this documentary the JPFO examines the history of laws passed that forbid blacks and other minorities from owning weapons.

The JPFO is an organization fiercely committed to the 2nd amendment because of the history of oppression of the Jewish people throughout the world. Their organization was, “Founded by Jews in 1989, JPFO initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs who share a common goal of opposing and reversing victim-disarmament policies while advancing liberty for all. It was the brainchild of Aaron Zelman (1946 – 2010), a leading national civil-rights activist. JPFO’s products and programs reach out to as many segments of the American people as possible, using “bold tactics without compromise on fundamental principles.”

In the videos above the JPFO asks the question, is gun control racist? What does it mean for all of society when it it’s no longer about blacks owning guns, but about the poor and middle class owning guns? Leave your thoughts and comments below.
