He’s part of a long line of blacks who’ve done precisely that throughout American history, the early gun-control laws targeting blacks specifically notwithstanding. Robert F. Williams and other blacks did it in Monroe, N.C. in the late 1950s and early 1960s against marauding Klansmen. The Deacons for Defense and Justice did it in Louisiana in the 1960s. Brothers defended the black neighborhood of northwest Washington, D.C. from rampaging whites in that city’s 1919 riot. Robert Charles did it in New Orleans back in 1900.You see, Otis McDonald, for whom the McDonald case is named is a black man, who has been victimized not by whites, but by other blacks. He thinks he has a right to have a gun for self defense, and I agree with him.
Armed self-defense was a cherished African-American tradition - until we became Democrats. But brothers like McDonald know one thing: Well-meaning Democrats can’t stop the thug invading your home.
