The racist gun control laws put in place by Democrats stopped Martin Luther King Jr from being able to get a concealed carry permit.
Most people think King would be the last person to own a gun. Yet in the mid-1950s, as the civil rights movement heated up, King kept firearms for self-protection. In fact, he even applied for a permit to carry a concealed weapon. A recipient of constant death threats, King had armed supporters take turns guarding his home and family. He had good reason to fear that the Klan in Alabama was targeting him for assassination.
The NRA also pointed this out:
Today, the men and women of the @NRA honor the profound life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King applied for a concealed carry permit in a “may issue” state and was denied. We will never stop fighting for every law-abiding citizen’s right to self-defense. #MLKDay pic.twitter.com/wtSQOO5Kaq— NRA (@NRA) January 21, 2019
On January 8, 2017, Breitbart News reported that Democrats were the authors of Jim Crow and of policies which which kept southern segregation alive. These things, along with gun control, were part of the Democrats’ plan for communities of color.
Syndicated radio host Stacy Washington, who happens to be black, observed, “Martin Luther King Jr., was denied a concealed carry permit. His life was threatened a lot and he really wanted to protect himself with a concealed permit but he could not because he could not get one. This is hold-over racism from the Democrats and their Jim Crow era controls and all that.”
As we reported earlier MLK’s niece said that he would have been a Republican.
