Sheriff Clarke Unmasks Gun Control’s Racist Roots

posted on October 28, 2016

“Do you know that gun control, early gun control, was really about keeping guns out of the hands of black people?” asked Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke last week at the Heritage Foundation’s event, “The Right to Arms and the War on Guns.” 

“We should be some of the most ardent supporters of the Second Amendment,” Clarke continued, “because our history was not being able to possess arms to be able to defend ourselves from mobs, kidnappings and lynching.” 

Clarke’s counsel is especially relevant today, as politicians like Hillary Clinton and Democrats across the country seek to impose gun bans and restrictions that not only fail to reduce crime, but also disproportionately disarm those who most need firearms to defend themselves—minorities and the urban poor who have been abandoned to uncontrolled criminal violence in cities like Chicago. For politicians to disarm those victims on the pretense of “protecting” them is dishonest and despicable.
