That is amazing. I had no idea that was true. I must post that graphic to my Facebook page.

Nice to meet everyone by the way. I am a brand new member.

16. Interestingly that's part of Thomas' concurrence in Heller

Basically, minorities can't trust gun bans to be enforced fairly. There's probably some justice to that point.

21. I am very aware of the picture and background.

But the OP was about the NRA. I am wondering if it is true or just something put on the internet.

11. Interesting

It would be interesting to see the NRA's response if there were news reports of African-Americans legally purchasing guns in large numbers.

When we see the massive rise in gun purchases, we assume - correctly, I suspect - that the buyers are RW extremists, white, low education, low information, low economic status, and militia members or supporters. Sure, there are middle class gun owners; witness the revelation of the "gun owner next door" in that NY newspaper. But reports of large numbers of non-whites buying guns? Certianly would be interesting to see.

17. A significant number of African Americans own guns.

And the NRA historically backed African Americans right to own and us firearms to protect themselves from racist attacks.

22. See Lance Hill's excellent book on the subject..

http://uncpress.unc.edu/browse/book_detail?title_id=850

Robert Williams and the Deacons for Defense opened 'shooting clubs' under the auspices of the NRA, using NRA materials and NRA instructors to train members to defend civil rights workers.

23. So by "historically" you mean once, 50 years ago? Makes sense that it was way before ...

... the NRA was taken over by the crazies.

14. Our pistol permit law in NC is a Jim Crow-era law

Passed to allow Sheioffs to keep certain guns out of the hands of Blacks.

15. Ten years earlier they helped Rob Williams form black militias

To protect themselves from white terrorism.

What a difference a decade makes.

18. Yup. the nuts were for gun control as long as it was limited to "those people".

When white gun owners became the focus after Ruby Ridge and Waco they turned a 180.
