Some liberal racists will do everything they can to link everything to race (I prefer ethnic origin since we are all 1 race – the human race). They try to make good law enforcement an issue of race. If anyone tries to stop an ethnic shoplifter, it suddenly becomes an issue of race.

One liberal has been trying to link the 2nd Amendment to the desire to protect slavery. The major problem with this bogus argument is something called the American Revolution. The British tried to disarm the colonists but failed and those firearms in the hands of the colonists played a huge role in winning American independence and this is one of the main reasons the 2nd Amendment was written.

(Fox News) – For 20 years now, a well-meaning law professor has been peddling the fiction that the Second Amendment – guaranteeing the right of Americans to keep and bear arms – was adopted to protect slavery. He first proposed this in a 1998 law review article and trotted it out again in a recent New York Times op-ed.

The trouble is: It’s untrue. Not a single one of America’s founders is known to have suggested such a purpose.

When the Redcoats came to disarm the colonists, the American patriots relied on the right to “have arms for their Defense,” as stated in the English Declaration of Rights of 1689.

In 1776, Pennsylvania declared: “That the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves, and the state.” Vermont copied that language in its constitution, which explicitly abolished slavery. Massachusetts and North Carolina adopted their own versions…

Thomas Jefferson wrote that every household should have a firearm with which to protect themselves with. He was talking about American Indians and possible foreign intrusion like that of the British. Today, we have a different danger threatening many households and it’s called home invasions and burglaries, none of which have anything to do with slavery and EVERTHING to do with self-defense.
