Views On Concealed Carry Changing In Black Community
By Americas 1 Stfreedom,July 28, 2017
There was a time when the black community and concealed carry did not mix. There were two main reasons behind this. The first reason was more than a century of Democrat-sponsored legislation aimed at keeping blacks unarmed. These efforts began before the Civil War, continued through the Reconstruction era and marked 20th-century attempts to control blacks through Jim Crow laws and other schemes. The second reason the black community and concealed carry did not mix was the fact that guns were chiefly viewed as a means by which criminals plied their trade in inner cities around the country. (If the reader understands that this second reason was an outgrowth of the attitude inculcated by Democrat-sponsored gun control, he or she will see that getting rid of the gun control was a key to changing attitudes toward guns in the black community.).
