At the 2/22/13 “Black Leaders Speak Out on Gun Control” press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., Project 21 member Stacy Swimp discusses the racist underpinnings of early gun control laws that were enforced in the Reconstruction-era American south. Stacy notes “there was a correlation, a direct relation, between gun control and black people control.”

Stacy also discussed how modern gun control laws are helpful to criminals. Admitting he was not always considered an upstanding citizen, he said that criminals prefer homes they know are unprotected. He said: “If you think for one minute that gun control is gonna do anything about reducing crime, what you’ve done — you’ve just played into the hands of criminals.”
