|Ann Coulter has never heard of Gun Buyback Programs that target minority gun owners|
Now, I Have a Dream (IHAD) Conservatives favorite femme fatale, Ann Coulter, has published a column calling for Black people to be armed nationwide (Negroes with Guns, April 19, 2012). She was even given a national platform on The O'Reilly Factor on April 19 to state why Black people should be armed:
O'REILLY: "Personal Story" segment tonight, Ann Coulter causing trouble again. In her latest column on AnnCoulter.com she says "Every black person in America should get a gun and join the NRA."
Ms. Coulter joins us from Los Angeles. So why are you saying that?
ANN COULTER, CONSERVATIVE COLUMNIST: Well, I think that generally But this was specifically in reaction to the Trayvon Martin case. And I won't be like some other in the media and claim to -- and jump to conclusions on it. We are going to have a trial but I was just making the point that if what a certain network I could name not Fox is claiming happen that George Zimmerman stalked this young black child just because he was black shot him dead in cold blood.
If that's the case well, the reaction isn't the conclusion they're coming to on the left which is oh, we need more gun control. Gun control laws have been used historically, they were -- they were to keep guns out of the hands of blacks and it was the Republican Party and the NRA that has always supported arming blacks in order to protect themselves from the democratic Ku Klux Klan.
O'REILLY: All right so what you're saying is if MSNBC and NBC News's hypothesis is true that this was a racially-biased driven murder --
O'REILLY: -- that all African-Americans should take that as a warning sign and arm themselves against that happening to them therefore, they should support the NRA. They should support the law that gives, allows you to fight back if threatened and they should arm themselves. That's what you're saying?
COULTER: Yes. And I mean the reason I thought of it is because liberals are leaping to exactly the opposite conclusion that oh, we have to get rid of these Stand Your Ground laws. They are against the easy issuing of concealed carry permits. Well as I point out in my column Martin Luther King Jr., a Christian minister under constant death threats applied for gun permit after his house was fire bombed.
And the Alabama authorities under the discretionary gun permit law said no, no this Christian minister is not suitable for a gun permit. That's how discretionary permits were. People who are for gun control are trying to keep guns out of the hands of the powerless.
O'REILLY: You know that's an interesting -- what you did was you turned the tables on the left and their agenda, there's no doubt about it. It's interesting that you cite Martin Luther King Jr. because the reason he was denied a gun permit is because he was black. That was the only reason.
O'REILLY: If he had a been a white preacher and his house if fire bombed they would have had the National Guard with bazookas protecting him. But because he was down in the south where there was racial discrimination in every area he was denied the gun permit. And you say that now African- Americans should now understand that if what Al Sharpton and the other guys are saying is true that they are targets of racists, white racists and those people are coming to get them.
The only protection they have is to arm themselves.
COULTER: Yes and -- and gun control laws have always been used this way. I mean, this is the history of gun control on these shores. The very first gun control law ever enacted on these shores in 1660 all it did will say that blacks both slaves and free men were not allowed to be armed. That was the battle that Republicans were fighting against Democrats well first through the Civil War but then in the wake of the Civil War you had free black American citizens and they had a right to be armed and among the rights they were being denied by Democrats. Not Republicans in the south.
I mean, the -- the history books will often try and twist the history by referring to the KKK and the racists as southerners. Oh no, no the Republicans in the south weren't discriminatory and by the way some of the Democrats up north were -- were voting against the Civil Rights Act.
The one thing all of the discriminators and the KKK sympathizers or the KKK themselves have in common was they were all Democrats and they would use things like gun registration to find out which blacks had guns so that the KKK could go in and take them away or sometimes just informers who would be given those guns or the May issue which we still have on some books today where the authority is determine whether you're suitable to have a gun. And they've look at you and if you're black you're not suitable. If you're white you're suitable.
O'REILLY: Well it's interesting that you raised this because we did this story a few months ago about an elderly man on the South Side of Chicago. And we just referred to that with Dr. Hill who was actually arrested in his home for having a gun because the drug addicts are breaking into his home every hour on the hour taking his stuff. And he said I have had enough of this. I'm going to get a gun. And the cops they got him.
Now those charges were dropped but he went national with the media. What do you want me to do? So I think you've got --
O'REILLY: I think you've got a very good point here that, you know are -- is the left really that concerned about Trayvon Martin or are they concern to get once again ramming their agenda no matter what it is down the throats of the American people under the guise of being sympathetic toward this poor teenager and his family. I'll give you the last word.
COULTER: Yes and -- and I think it's important for people to know that the NRA was issuing charters to black men like Robert Williams in my site -- it was his book, "Negroes with Guns" to fight off the Klan. He started a gun club called "Armed Black Guards". And that was the end of the clan in Monroe, North Carolina.
O'REILLY: All right, Ann Coulter, everybody. Thank you.
Sorry to burst Ann Coulter's IHAD bubble, but police aren't doing gun buyback programs in the America Heartland or the suburbs surrounding major cities controlled by and populated by
|Seems like Black people like to target whites... when they aren't targeting||Blacks|
Yes, Virginia: Gun Buyback programs are targeted at the Black community. In November 2011, the US Department of Justice released the Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980-2008; Annual Rates for 2009 and 2010 report. In it, we learn:
Blacks were disproportionately represented among homicide victims and offenders
In 2008, the homicide victimization rate for blacks (19.6 homicides per 100,000) was 6 times higher than the rate for whites (3.3 homicides per 100,000). The victimization rate for blacks peaked in the early 1990s, reaching a high of 39.4 homicides per 100,000 in 1991 (figure 17).
After 1991, the victimization rate for blacks fell until 1999, when it stabilized near 20 homicides per 100,000. In 2008, the offending rate for blacks (24.7 offenders per 100,000) was 7 times higher than the rate for whites (3.4 offenders per 100,000) (figure 18).
The offending rate for blacks showed a similar pattern to the victimization rate, peaking in the early 1990s at a high of 51.1 offenders per 100,000 in 1991.
The race distribution of homicide victims and offenders differed by type of homicideFrom 1980 to 2008—
Black victims were over-represented in homicides involving drugs, with 62.1% of all drug-related homicides involving black victims. By comparison, 36.9% of drug-related homicide victims were white and 1% were victims of other races.
Compared with the overall percentage of murder victims who were black (47.4%), blacks were less likely to be victims of sex-related homicides (30.4%), workplace killings (12.5%), or homicides of elders age 65 or older (28.6%) (table 7).
While two-thirds of drug-related homicides were committed by black offenders (65.6%), black offenders were less likely to be involved in sex-related killings (43.4%), workplace homicides, (25.8%) or homicides of elders age 65 or older (41.9%) compared to their overall involvement as homicide offenders (52.5%).Ann Coulter seems to believe the only way to enact an American Renaissance is via arming Black people. We at SBPDL believe the only way to enact a true American Renaissance is through similar actions taken by police in heavily Black cities and counties: offer great buy back programs for their guns.
It is Black violence - and the fear of Black violence, which is statistically, warranted - that threatens the stability of major American cities and drives law-abiding citizens to seek shelter and refuge in areas uninhabited by Black people.
Ms. Coulter--- arming Black people wouldn't bring about an American Renaissance. Disarming Black people, an act that police in heavily Black areas try and do in a yearly basis through gun buyback programs, is the first step to a true American Renaissance.
Ann --- you need help. Gun Buyback Programs are held in almost exclusively Black-controlled cities (or cities with a population that is more than 10 percent Black). Don't arm Black people; emulate the police in Birmingham, New York City, Chicago, Charlotte, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Shreveport, Jackson (MS), Houston, Dallas, and Nashville... buy back all of Black people's firearms.
Remember: guns don't kill people, dangerous minorities do. This is why police have gun buyback programs.
