Violence Policy Center “Blacks Should Have Reduced Gun Rights”
Whatever the VPC's intent may be, the gun control group indirectly concludes that black communities must be disarmed.
Washington, DC – -(Pajamasmedia.com)- The Violence Policy Center (VPC) — the anti-gun rights group that Barack Obama repeatedly voted to fund while he was a director of the Joyce Foundation — believes that African-Americans are too violent to deserve the entire Constitution.
