Frederick Douglass Society President: ‘Direct Correlation Between Gun Control and Black People Control’ (+video)

( – Gun control dates back to laws before and after the Civil War that prohibited or restricted African Americans from owning firearms, a group of black leaders said Friday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

“History is rife with examples. There’s a direct correlation between gun control and black people control,” Stacy Swimp, president and CFO of the Frederick Douglass Society, said at the event.

Swimp compared the call for universal background checks for gun purchase to the time when blacks were required to register with the government.

“The first gun laws were put into place to register black folks, to make sure that they would know who we were – that we could not defend ourselves,” Swimp said.

“I think if you look right after the Emancipation Proclamation – what was going on down in the southern states, it’s very clear that the Dixiecrats wanted to disarm black people to keep us from defending ourselves against the Klansman, who were murdering white and black Republicans to control the ballot box,” Swimp said. “So I think history is [rife] with examples. There’s a direct correlation between gun control and black people control.”

    We Americans that understand the God Given Right of all People, regardless of anything else concerning where they are in life or who they are, or where they live in this world…to protect themselves against anyone that would do them harm, or try to take their property…..must also understand that anyone that is willing to deprive another from doing so must be “Pro-Criminal/Pro-Crime”.
    So we must force Washington in using words that address to issue…not paper it over with BS. You are either “Pro-Crime” (taking of Guns from Honest Americans…and not Criminals) or “Anti-Crime” (Addressing the Real Issue of Criminals Out Of Control).

    Washington uses words that mean nothing…but suggest they have no way of stopping anyone from doing bad things to others….every person that committed these killing of babies, or in the movies, or in Columbine or from the trunk of a car…etc. was committed by people that passed Washington’s foolish efforts to stop them. High school kids, young people without a criminal back ground, student that got pissed off about his score, or sons that got mad at Mom. How do you draft a law to stop these people??? You can’t!!!

    Washington is “Pro-Criminal/Pro-Crime”…because the only thing Washington can do by taking Guns out of the Hands of Americans is to make the Outlaw’s Job of Lawlessness Safer for Them!! So let’s force Washington to use the words that actually describe the truth…”Pro-Criminal/Pro-Crime” is what they are advocating!

  • Another IDIOT playing the race card. Will it never end????????

    • All it does, is prove that Obama is a puppet being used to draw blacks into the net and enslave them along with ALL Americans. And it’s working quite well so far. Who are the real racists causing the most harm on Black Americans? Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Juan Williams, and their puppet leader Obama. Black genocide. That’s what it is.

    A great quote at the end of video ” When they take our guns they will also seek to take our God , that’s when American’s will fight back ”

    Sir – Our NRA will not wait for that to happen , the fight is on RIGHT NOW !

    So the question is why do you keep voting for the people that are trying to take your freedoms away?????

      McDonald, Chicago Korean War Vet, his case went to the Supreme Court and overthrew Chicago’s gun law. Saw him interviewed on Fox and he said that he voted for Daley. I will never understand that vote.

      Perhaps this will be the Pandora’s box which they needed to open to make them see the light.

    • The people in the video don’t.

    This is a great article. I admire Frederick Douglass. History shows us many canaries in the hole. 95% of Blacks were Conservitive, and those that could vote, registered and voted – Republican; until F.D.R. and L.B.J. I am familiar with the “black code”,and America should familiarize themselves too. Those who believe that all Blacks are “anything”, have been mis-informed by the very System that they claim to hate. I am pro-gun, yet know Whom, my enemy is [Ephes.6].

      Our Negro population must expose Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson for who they really are until this hapens the Negro People will continue to vote Democrat and stay Useful Idiots

    • CSN

      I’d say Republican until J.F.K. and R.F.K.

    These blacks are living a century and a half ago. I’m glad they’re against these gun bans the Obama commies want to put on us, but let’s be realistic. The feds REALLY want to disarm those of us who are white, Christian, heterosexual and/or conservative. We’re the ones who despise the left wing agenda and this Obama creep. They don’t give a sh*t about disarming blacks. Blacks are the ones who’d jump off the highest cliff for their idol Obama.

    It is about one race of people, the human race. Gun control is a misnomer, it is people control. The government has to disarm America to snap us inline with one world governance under the U.N..

    This is just bad history. Gun control efforts do not correlate with slavery. In point of fact, the ex-confederates who sponsored the KKK and the Dixiecrats who sponsored the 20th Century reign of terror known as Jum Crow were enthusiastic supporters of the right of white men to carry all manner of firearms and to use said firearms against black men at the slightest provocation.

    they are already seeking to take our God away. Public School brainwashing has been going on for over 100years. Here a little, there a little and it’s getting louder and louder as they gain power and the following of prior generations of brainwashed Public School graduates. (or attendees)

    Good example! Very True indeed!

  • CSN

    I was not aware that the NRA was started to protect the Black population from the KKK. Good historical lesson here. God Bless these Conservative Black Leaders, and I’d love to give them all a hug! 🙂


    The sheeple will continue to vote for the people who feed them at the government trough and keep them on the plantation. Life is tough and it’s even tougher when you’re stupid.
