The entire black power movement during the Civil Rights era was super pro-gun. Malcom X encouraged black communities to arm themselves, and all Black Panthers carried guns and provided guns to members of their community in need. Many of the original black panthers have JUST BEEN RELEASED from prison recently over 'gun crimes', if that tells you exactly how far we've progressed. Remember, COINTELPRO was created to 'deal with' armed black communities, to divide them against each other and other white radical activists and to pacify them, keeping them complacent by trafficking hard drugs into black neighborhoods. The most militant armed leader in the civil rights era, Fred Hampton, was murdered by the FBI in his own bed in Chicago.
