Black conservative activist Star Parker introduces Stacy M. Swimp, the president Frederick Douglas Society to answer a reporter’s question about how gun control has racist overtones.
“The first gun laws were put in place to register black folks to make sure that they knew who we were,” Swimp informs the reporter according to CSPAN3.
“There’s a direct correlation between gun control and black people control.”
Swimp then moves on to gun control legislation in general.
“The homes that criminals look for to commit crimes are the ones they assume or believe or know there is not a gun owner in the home.”
Then he drives the point home.
“If you think for one minute that gun control is going to do anything about reducing crime, what you’ve done is you’ve just played into the hands of criminals. And they’re having a party and thanking the Democrat Party for making it much easier for them.”
