    Why do you think Heston jumped for the part in "Planet of the Apes" it was a part that put the spotlight on the horrors of Racism.

    It appears you are late to the game? So why didn't YOU MARCH for equal Rights for Blacks in the 1960s. It appears the NRA was WAY ahead of the Democrat Party and old' Marines in fighting for the rights of African Americans.


    I guess you didn't get the Memo.. that Hating Blacks for being Black isn't a good thing.

    The NRA fought for the rights of African Americans in 1996 to have the right to self Defense when BILL CLINTON ORDERED WIRE TAPS in order to Disarm LAW ABIDING BLACKS IN CHICAGO in 1996.

    The NRA fights for BLACKS WHITES NATIVE AMERICANS AND OTHER RACES TO HAVE THE RIGHT to self defense from criminals.. to this very day.
    Who is the "they" constantly referred to in the video ad?

    Like the KKK, the NRA was also formed right after the Civil War. The organization’s first major involvement with promoting gun laws tainted by prejudice was in the 1920s and 30s. In response to urban gun violence often associated with immigrants, especially those from Italy, the NRA’s president, Karl Frederick, helped draft model legislation to restrict concealed carry of firearms in public. States, Frederick’s model law recommended, should only allow concealed carry by people with a license, and those licenses should be restricted to “suitable” people with “proper reason for carrying” a gun in public. Thanks to the NRA’s endorsement, these laws were adopted in the majority of states.
    , Determining who was “suitable” under these licensing schemes was left to the discretion of local law enforcement. Predictably, racial minorities and disfavored immigrants were usually deemed unsuitable, no matter how serious a threat they faced. In 1956, after his house was firebombed, Martin Luther King Jr. was turned down when he applied for a permit to carry a concealed firearm in MontgomeryAlabama.
    The 1960s saw another wave of gun control laws that were, at least in part, motivated by race. After Malcolm X promised to fight for civil rights “by any means necessary” while posing for Ebony magazine with an M1 Carbine rifle in his hand and the Black Panthers took to streets of Oakland with loaded guns, conservatives like Ronald Reagan, then governor of California, began promoting gun control. Black radicals with guns, coupled with the devastating race riots that wiped out whole neighborhoods in Newark and Detroit in 1967, helped persuade Congress to pass the Gun Control Act of 1968. That law barred felons from purchasing firearms, expanded the licensing of gun dealers, and barred imports of “Saturday Night Specials”—cheap, often poorly made guns that were frequently used for crime by urban youth. As one gun control supporter at the time frankly admitted, a close look at that law revealed that it wasn’t really about controlling guns; it was about controlling blacks. And the NRA, in its signature publication, American Rifleman, took credit for the law and extolled its virtues.
    Of course, not every gun law in American history was motivated by racism. In fact, some of our earliest gun laws had nothing to do with prejudice. After 1820, for instance, a wave of laws swept through the South and Midwest barring people from carrying concealed weapons. These laws weren’t racist in origin; blacks in many of these states were already prohibited from even owning a gun. The target of concealed carry laws was white people, namely violence-prone men who were a bit too eager to defend their honor by whipping out their guns. These laws, which might be thought of as the first modern gun control laws, had their origin in reducing criminal violence among whites.

    That is quite possibly the stupidest piece of fascist propaganda solicitation I have ever seen. "They" have no idea what "they" are talking about.

    (You know who "they" are, right?)

    NO, it's "they" as in:
    "pick out any minority you don't happen to like", they means anything they WANT it to at any given point in time. Someone to BLAME, other than themselves of course.
