'No Guns for Negroes'
We've spent a good part of this week exploring issues of racism and gun control.
We listened to an anti-gun "Black Voice."
We touched a third rail.
And we learned what the panther taught the eagle.
All this was built up from an open letter that never closed.
I want to tell you about another effort to help open eyes on this subject. A politically incorrect effort. An in-your-face effort. And I support it.
Aaron Zelman, Executive Director of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, has been at the leading edge of creative gun rights advocacy since he first became prominent in the movement in the mid-Eighties. He's working on a new project that takes the gloves off.
Per the JPFO information release:
"We are ramping-up the vital, missing education strategy. One that will quickly break through all the media double speak -- turning tables in our favor -- in spite of the seemingly overwhelming odds. The strategy…Destroy Political Correctness (PC)
and the False Guilt “Pimp Politics” that Fuel it...
...Until now, PC has been the armor protecting them from an accurate and sustained counter-attack to their lies. With PC they play the phony – but intensely emotional – “Racist” card, greatly intimidating those supporting 2A. Considering that high profile firearms violence is typically concentrated in Black urban areas, their “racist” name calling is a fraudulent but still potent threat to 2A."
OK, but what's JPFO going to do about it?
" JPFO has been working diligently on a pioneering film to expose the racist roots of “gun control” pushed by the Obama team.
Entitled "NO GUNS FOR NEGROES", it features a long-time 2A activist in the Black community, who also represents one of the most highly respected national Black civil rights organizations, he is on the staff of a prominent Libertarian think tank, and former mayor of a Chicago suburb."
I don't want to reproduce the whole release here, I want you to read it for yourself. Go to JPFO's website where you can learn more (scroll down about half way on the right).
After you have, I hope you decide to support the effort. These things don't just make themselves, and as I've noted ad nauseum, apathy is as great an enemy to gun rights as anything else that we face. Entirely too many gun owners let others carry the load. You that I point this finger at know exactly who you are.
