Washington Post Crusades Against 2nd Amendment, Claims Guns Keep White Men On Top

The Washington Post ran an article Friday claiming gun violence is “rooted in white supremacy” and white men turn to guns as a way to “reassert their authority.”

The story, by Nathan Wuertenberg, goes on to say the Second Amendment was twisted by white men so they could “exercise authority over black men and women by violent means.” Wuertenberg blames society for having “incentivized white male violence” and believes there is a correlation between mass shootings and the empowerment of minorities.

“It’s no coincidence that the rate of gun violence, and mass shootings in particular, has risen in tandem with the expansion of rights and representation for people of color and women in recent decades,” he writes. “Mass shooters have routinely expressed white-supremacist views or motivations.”

Wuertenberg also tries to go after the National Rifle Association (NRA) and said they were complicit in criminalizing “legal black gun ownership.”

“The 2015 police shooting of Philando Castile, who was killed in Minnesota as he followed proper protocol by announcing he had a legal handgun in his vehicle, is but the most notable example in recent years of the criminalization of legal black gun ownership,” the article reads. “The fact that the NRA, an organization eager to join the fray at the slightest hint that gun rights might be infringed upon, did nothing in response to his death reveals its assumption that gun ownership is a white domain.”

Wuertenberg ends the piece by mentioning Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz and tried to get philosophical about him wearing a “Make America Great Again Hat.”

“Most recently, the suspected shooter in the Parkland, Fla. school massacre, Nikolas Cruz, was reportedly photographed with a “Make America Great Again” hat,” Wuertenberg concluded. “The hat was new. The worldview that put that hat on his head and an AR-15 in his hands is not.”

    Considering that the NRA was, and still is, for (what Madison called) ALL “peaceable fellows” to firearms, this Ultra-Lib’s statement doesn’t hold water.

    Jim Crowe Laws tried (among other things) to stop Afro-American firearm ownership. Slowly at first the NRA started fighting against this, unfortunately, I feel they didn’t fight it as hard as they should have until much time had passed after the U.S. Civil War.

    (Pardon me while I use historical terms) Imagine, if you will, that you are a Negro in the 1870’s, south of the Masson-Dixon Line, that a certain group (let’s call them the Koo Koo Klucks) thinks that they need to put you in “your place”. Now considering that the local “law enforcement” officers are probably also in this group, the only thing between and a grave is your trusty double barrel shotgun and a pistol stuck between your belt & pants….. This is what the 2nd Amendment is about! The protection from Tyranny, foreign or domestic – – – –

    Condi Rice has talked about how her father and other Afro-Americans stood watch, every night, at the mouth of the road to the segregated area where they lived to prevent the Koo Koo Klucks, and regular criminals out.
