Racism after the Civil War aimed at black citizens with gun control

During the Representatives’ Justice Committee’s Wednesday marking, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) that the Democratic South’s gun control after the Civil War for former slaves and free black citizens shows why we should be armed.

began Roy by speaking about how his family enjoys firing firearms on his Texas property, and noted semi-vending machines are firearms “you can use to defend yourself against home invaders, but also, let’s be clear, against tyranny.”

He went on to note that one of his fellow Democrats only talked about rights in the second amendment “in connection with hunting”, adding: “As if my rights are reduced in the constitution to a .410 or a single shot or a lever action. 22. As if that was what was being put forward as how we should defend ourselves. “

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) interrupted during Roy’s comments, noting the comment about using semi-automation to fight “tyranny.”

Nadler asked, “Do you think you would use it against American troops?”

Roy replied: “The very existence of the Second Amendment is designed to enable the people to resist the power of tyranny against them in order to transgress their natural rights granted to them by God.”

Roy then noted that the Democratic South’s historic efforts to keep slaves and newly released slaves disarmed serve as perfect proof of why our founders wanted Americans to be armed:

Let’s rewind the clock a bit, as I know at least several judges have written in Supreme Court statements … about what life looked like in the 19th century. And what the government did to remove the ability of … released blacks or whites who even rose up in defense of blacks or against slavery, and the efforts of the South and the efforts of the government’s strong arm to remove their ability to have firearms.

August 23, 2017, Breitbart News noticed how defeated Confederate Democrats used gun control tactics to keep blacks unarmed in the south immediately after the Civil War, and used gun control for similar purposes in the 20th century.

David Kopel and Joseph Greenlee used an op-ed in Tray to explain: “As the special report of the Paris Anti-Slavery Conference of 1867 found, released men in some southern states were ‘forbidden to own or carry firearms and were thus rendered defenseless against assault.’ Thus, white supremacy could continue to control the released through threats of violence. “

Kopel and Greenlee noted:

Weapons have historically protected Americans from white supremacy, just as gun control has historically protected white supremacy from the Americans they terrorize. One month after the Confederate surrender in 1865, Frederick Douglass called for federal action to stop state and local violations of the right to arms. Until this was achieved, Douglass argued, “the work of the abolitionists is not finished.”
