Black conservatives discuss how the NRA protected freed slaves – Video

Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to “promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis,” according to a magazine editorial written by Church.

After being granted a charter by the state of New York on November 17, 1871, the NRA was founded. Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who was also the former governor of Rhode Island and a U.S. Senator, became the fledgling NRA’s first president.

As new chapters where formed, some helped teach Black Americans how to protect themselves from hate groups like the KKK.  Democrats have been gun control advocates in some form.  In the past,  it was to keep guns out of the hands of Black Americans along with keeping them from voting.

Black conservative leaders discuss how the NRA was created to protect freed slaves – SHORT VERSION

Black conservative leaders discuss the reason the NRA was founded and how gun control is an effort to control people.

The Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) hosted a group of prominent figures from the African American community at 9:45A.M. on Friday, February 22nd at the National Press Club to speak out against gun control legislation currently being considered on Capitol Hill.

CURE is the largest black conservative think tank in the nation and is headquartered in Washington, D.C.

CURE organized the news conference in response to concerns shared by black conservatives that the Senate proposed laws will restrict their ability to defend themselves, their property and their families. They are also concerned that the proposed gun control legislation puts too much power in the hands of politicians.

  1. Can you cite some sources regarding NRA chapters that “…helped teach Black Americans how to protect themselves from hate groups like the KKK.”

    I’m having trouble finding any reference to this, aside from the above mentions.

  2. Guns are not the problem
    Black Culture is the problem
    Your not going to change black culture.
    You can avoid it.
    Or move away from it.
    But your not going to change it.
