The Huey P. Newton Gun Club is a coalition of members from various different groups/organizations coming together in unity to practice our 2nd amendment right "To bear Arms". Our mission is to educate the masses of people on the necessity of self. That includes self-preservation, self-defense, and self-sufficiency through militant culture. Safety, caution, and attention to detail are at the core of our way of life. We desire a world of peace, justice, and equality for all humanity, and specifically people of color.
We, the Huey P Newton Gun Club, work to educate our people, particularly the youth. To that end, our movement educates and teaches the community at our weekly meetings; public forums, rallies; programs; town hall meetings; on the streets; in the schools; in the projects; on the radio; through electronic and print media, and anywhere where knowledge needs to be forwarded. Most of our youth are currently in the public school system. For this reason we will take an active role in school board affairs and general work in the regional public schools. We will struggle to turn the local school board back into the electoral hands of our people.
We respect the Police in our community who show proper respect for our community. We respect those in authority as long they respect us. We, the Huey P Newton Gun Club, mobilize and organize for an end to police brutality and misconduct. We demand the police in our community, and elsewhere, respect the Human Rights of our people and their constitutional rights. We strive for community police review boards with legal power to seek indictments, punish and discipline rogue police officers. We will monitor and observe the police according to the law. We struggle to reform areas in our community or nation from the negative behavior that is imposed upon us. We believe in our divine and legal rights to self-defense after centuries of state regulated abuse and terrorism. The criminal justice system must be held accountable to the will of our people, and not support an industrial complex, capitalizing in profit to see our people continuously incarcerated. Of course, our work is in the jails and prisons where many great brothers and sisters are locked up. We demand immediate freedom for all political prisoners and prisoners of racist political circumstance.
Written by The Founding Dallas Council
1. We want immediate end to police brutality and the murder of black and brown.
2. We want to cease black on black violence and self-hatred.
3. We want to arm every black men and woman throughout the United States, which has been the greatest fear of the establishment.
In the city of Dallas not unlike any other city across America there is an issue with “police terrorism”. The term terrorism is used because of the systematic murders of unarmed defenseless black, brown, and poor people without regard for life. Since 2001-2012 according to open records request done by “Dallas Communities Organizing for Change” there were 40 or more that lost their lives with no discretion from Dallas Police officers. Clinton Allen had been the most known locally murder of an unarmed individual being shot 7 times by Marine Corps Veteran and Dallas Police Officer Clark Staller #9514 on March 10th, 2010. These conditions help spur the creation of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club as our first public “patrol” on August 20th, 2014. We promoted armed self-defense from blatant racist black and white racist cops. Dallas police Chief David Brown response was to have a SWAT team on standby encouraging a violent standoff. Our mission was simply to educate the masses of black people in Dallas of their right to bear arms as mentioned in 2nd amendment the Constitution of the United States and also Article 1 of the Texas Constitution. What we found is largely a community that desires to be educated about arms.
People that have experience with weapons desire an organization to be a part of. These two types of people now have a platform within The Huey P. Newton Gun Club to fulfill these desires. You and I have a duty to educate as many as we can about the proper usage of weapons, and also our political right to take a defensive stance towards the status quo that has committed the greatest act of terrorism against indigenous people world-wide. Redirecting and ceasing self-hatred, which is often diagnosed as black on black violence, is a part of our program. Too many of us have fallen as a result of being colonized in America and without thought have killed one another. We the Huey P Newton Gun Club accept the responsibility to intervene as often as we can and strive to convert these elements of our community into soldiers for the cause to uplifting the community. We feel that properly educating young men and women about weapons and anger can prevent careless acts from occurring. Additionally, by doing educational seminars such as camping, hunting, and mentorship programs shown results have shown positive results with the youth. In essence we take responsibility for the growth and development for our community which is an element to our nationalist ideals. We understand and know we will not win every person over to our methods and practices, however we accept we must walk this difficult path towards eventual armed struggle. Pivotal to our organizational foundation is the promoting of black men and women to bear and possess arms, to train and develop survival skills. The Huey P. Newton Gun Club intends on taking full advantage of promoting to the general black community their rights to exercise this point freely. We feel passionate about this position, because to us there is no theory above the practice of arming our community for self-defense.
