Why black Americans should continue to bear arms

Opinion

by Joseph Haynes Davis |
How-to-keep-guns-out-of-our-kids-hands-16x9.JPG

The legal/legislative issue of gun control continues to be a hotly debated topic for black Americans and will always be an important issue for all of America.

The subject matter is constantly in the media, with each report lending its own social and political spin. Most opinions produced or written in the African-American press argue for increased gun control.

The common jurisdictional component in all cases is the state of Florida. Those cases include the State of Florida v. George Zimmerman, also known as the Trayvon Martin case, State of Florida v. Marissa Alexander, with the most recent one being the State of Florida v. Michael David Dunn, in which the victim is Jordan Russell Davis.

Also at issue is Florida Statute 776.013 commonly referred to as the “Stand Your Ground” law. The statute is a defense strategy and option afforded to defendants in certain criminal proceedings when the accused defendants are charged criminally when using firearms that they otherwise allegedly are legally permitted to carry and possess.

Let me state at the outset that the families of the deceased victims in these cases, Trayvon Martin and Jordan Russell Davis, have my condolences. Reading news reports of how these young black, American males lost their life makes me angry. I am a black American, a male, and a resident of the State of Florida, living in Orlando.

I supported Barack Obama’s run for president in 2008 and 2012 and was part of the Obama legal team for poll watching on Election Day in 2008 and for early voting in 2012, trying to insure no voting irregularities occurred on my watch.

And, while performing my sworn duties as a poll watcher, I had legally and properly concealed a Ruger SP 101 .357 Magnum with 5 rounds of hollow points in my Honda Element along with a Beretta Cheetah .380 semi-automatic with 13 rounds of hollow points for protection, just in case I needed to defend myself from any criminal tyranny, bigoted or otherwise.

I make no apologies for my zeal and advocacy for a strong 2nd Amendment. I’m equally as zealous concerning 9th Amendment privacy issues, freedoms for women giving them the right to control their bodies, contraception, and which affords same-sex couples privacy rights along with the equal protections contained in the 14th Amendment.

I know I can be presumed a threat or suspicious person because of my skin color and gender. After all, I am a black-American male, well educated earning my B.S. at Illinois State University, an M.S.W. from the University of Pennsylvania and also attended Rutgers Law School-Camden. I understand the history of bigotry in America, but refuse to let it hold me back in any way, and I run own my own businesses.

Yet, I am still considered a target. In fact, no matter how old you become, being a black American male, walking outside in the environment, is always rife with inherent risks.

However, it is because of the aforementioned that I am also a strong 2nd Amendment advocate. I am the type of man who, because of the history of bigotry in America, and its racist roots of gun control, refuse to ever abdicate any right to the state, for any reason whatsoever, including my right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.


I have in the past and shall continue to argue for no changes, no abolition or erosion of Florida Statute 776.013, or “Stand Your Ground”. Again, I am a black American. I am male.

Unfortunately the issue of the express constitutional right of the 2nd Amendment is confused by the lack of knowledge and history and the ability, rather the inability, fear and ignorance of some black Americans to realize that right to keep, bear and effectuate that right via the statutes of several states.

Because of its historically racist basis, the right to bear arms has been either historically usurped by bigoted state-sanctioned controls or has been intellectually, morally and emotionally usurped by the so-called teachings and suspect leadership of purported self-appointed leaders. This is true, whether the leaders be self-appointed or allegedly anointed, because of their so-called religious positions or piety, or have been compromised politically, though elected by the people.

Consequently, why would I or anyone, give back a right that black Americans have died for access to or have been lynched as a result of the inability to embrace and effectuate that right?

Do you think that any of the lynched martyrs of the black American experience would be deceased if they had brandished a Beretta M9, semi-automatic, hand gun with two magazines filled with 15 rounds of 9 millimeter, hollow point ammunition to defend themselves from lynch mob bigots?

I have often asked African-Americans what other express constitutional right they would like to see either abolished or repealed? I would have been taken aback had anyone answered the erosion or abolition of the 13th Amendment, which outlaws slavery and involuntary servitude.

In conclusion, the following passage taken from a law review article written by my criminal law professor Robert J. Cottrol formerly of Rutgers Law School-Camden further states my position.

The history of blacks, firearms regulations, and the right to bear arms should cause us to ask new questions regarding the Second Amendment. These questions will pose problems both for advocates of stricter gun controls and for those who argue against them. Much of the contemporary crime that concerns Americans is in poor black neighborhoods and a case can be made that greater firearms restrictions might alleviate this tragedy. But another, perhaps stronger case can be made that a society with a dismal record of protecting a people has a dubious claim on the right to disarm them. Perhaps a re-examination of this history can lead us to a modern realization of what the framers of the Second Amendment understood: that it is unwise to place the means of protection totally in the hands of the state, and that self-defense is also a civil right.

To summarize the article:

Considering all the f*cked up sh*t that's been done to us throughout American history, it's ridiculous for Negroes to be co-signing our own disarmament.

I am all for the right to bare arms. Proper understanding & respect for the law as well as the firearm would elevate most people's fear.

The criminals/thugs will ALWAYS have guns.

Gun control laws only prevent law-abiding citizens from strapping up.....you know, because law-abiding citizens are the only people who abide by laws in the first place.


Sidenote: I accidentally thanked your post when I tried to quote it. Sleepy

it is your right as a citizen to defend your person, loved one & property. It goes far deeper than a fair one. Especially as a woman, it is damn near impossible to neutralize a perp with your bare hands, but put a glock in it...see if that works.

yes, we need more stories like this...

Boy, seven, pieces together his parents' dismantled gun and shoots his eight-year-old sister

  • Youngster opened lock box where gun was stored at grandparents' house
  • Boy was playing with the gun in bedroom when he inadvertently fired shot

This seven-year-old boy, pictured being escorted to the police station accidentally shot his eight-year-old sister in the arm after he managed to open a lock box and put together a dismantled gun

A seven-year-old boy accidentally shot his eight-year-old sister in the arm after he managed to open a lock box and put together a dismantled gun.

Police say the youngster inadvertently fired at his sister while playing with the weapon at home in the West Oak Lane area of Philadelphia at around 10.40am on Thursday.

The gun was stored in a lock box at the home of the children's grandparents, but the boy managed to get hold of the keys, open it up and put it together.

The two children were in the little girl's bedroom on the first floor of the property when the boy began playing with the gun, triggering it to fire a shot into the girl's arm.

On hearing the shot the girl's grandparents came to her assistance, put the gun away and took her to the hospital emergency ward at Einstein Medical Centre with non-life-threatening injuries.

She has since been transferred to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, but medical staff say she remains in a stable condition.

The boy, who cannot been identified, was later seen being led into the police station.

According to abc Lt. George McClay of the Philadelphia Police said: 'The kid is very shook up. He's not happy with what he did and he knows he did something wrong.'

 

Friends and neighbors say this is a tight-knit family and their thoughts are with them at this time.

'They're a wonderful family. Really, they're just a close-knit family and I know this was an accident," said family friend Beverly Jackson.

The shocking incident happened in the top bedroom of this house on Georgian Road in Philadelphia where the youngsters live with their grandparents

While precautions were taken, police say there are better ways to secure your weapons from curious children.

'You have digital safes, things like that. You make sure kids don't know the combination. That's the best way to do it.'

The gun was registered, police say, and while the investigation continues it does not appear any charges will be filed.
