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.
Blacks in the United States are disproportionately affected by homicide. For the year 2007, blacks represented 13 percent of the nation’s population, yet accounted for 49 percent of all homicide victims.
As noted at the beginning of this study, the devastation homicide inflicts on black teens and adults is a national crisis, yet it is all too often ignored outside of affected communities.
For blacks, like all victims of homicide, guns — usually handguns — are far and away the number one murder tool. Successful efforts to reduce America’s black homicide toll must put a focus on reducing access to firearms.
For an organization to make a public declaration that suggests an entire race be denied the same level of constitutional protections as others is both shocking and bewildering. The study received financing from left-wing groups dedicated to social engineering, including the David Bohnett Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, and the Public Welfare Foundation.
The goal of the Violence Policy Center in this report is the goal of the group in every report it has ever issued: an erosion of gun rights for all Americans, with the ultimate goal being the prohibition of all firearms save those under state control.
Towards that totalitarian end, the VPC does not seem to have any qualms about advocating a return to racist policies that left African-American communities helpless targets for most of a century.
Nor does Sugarman or his group explain how disarming law-abiding blacks will make them anything other than victims for those that refuse to follow existing prohibitions against murder…..

Wow this is a crazy statement released by the VPC,what makes this group think that reducing gun rights to blacks will stop homicides?People will still continue to murder one another weather it be by gun or knife!So the true problem is not in gun ownership,but the true problem lies in people learning to respect the life of another person. By reducing gun rights to blacks,will set blacks back 300 years to the days of slavery in America when blacks could not own a firearm because the slave owners were afraid the slaves would use the firearms aginst the slave owners… Read more »
"For blacks, like all victims of homicide, guns — usually handguns — are far and away the number one murder tool. Successful efforts to reduce America’s black homicide toll must put a focus on reducing access to firearms."
Reread carefully and ponder. Let it sink in. Do you see it yet?
Maybe this will help:
"Successful efforts to reduce America’s homicide toll must put a focus on reducing access to firearms."
This is about gun control for everyone, and the death of blacks by firearms as the excuse for it.
Let's put it this way. *****Removed comment for user policy violation*******
WOW, if a white group had said this their would be rioting in the streets, front page news all the TV stations would lead with it on the nightly news.
Guess it is ok if a black group tells the truth for a change.
The Racist Violence Policy Center I read an article today said to be released recently by the Violence Policy Center supposedly a national non-profit educational foundation. It stated that blacks in the United States should be denied access to guns for their own safety. In support of this statement, bloggers from Great Britain and other anonymous regions parrot the mantra that white people would be better off if people of color didn’t have firearms. Wow, let me check the calendar. This is 2010 is it not? In the article based on 2007 statistics from Pennsylvania the article cites data “from… Read more »
