Nothing gives progressives a greater sense of purpose than finding racism in everything America holds dear. The Second Amendment is no exception.
Lefties have a proud history of attacking the Second Amendment for its allegedly racist origins.
Claim: The Second Amendment is rooted in genocide and was created to allow for slave patrols. It should be abolished.
Reality: The Second Amendment, ratified in 1791, was proposed by James Madison to allow the creation of civilian forces that can counteract a tyrannical federal government.
Claim: The Second Amendment was designed in a way that denies the rights of African Americans and should be abolished.
Reality: The Second Amendment was ratified at a time when slavery was still in practice. That doesn’t make the Second Amendment inherently racist – especially since it now exists in a time that black people are granted the same rights and protections as white people. To assert otherwise is to imply that the entire U.S. Constitution is racist and should be abolished.
Claim: In America, gun rights are for whites only because unarmed “black men are more likely to be shot by police.”
Reality: One has nothing to do with the other.
It’s also worth noting that the first “gun control” laws in the U.S. were created to keep black Americans from owning firearms, but progressives don’t like to talk about that for obvious reasons.
The latest example of progressives’ unbridled “guns are racist” lunacy emerged from (no surprise) a college classroom, where a professor told students the Second Amendment is nothing more than an excuse for white people to kill black people.
