    A true story about armed African Americans protecting them selves and family and fighting against the KKK in Jonesboro, La. The group was founded in 1964 during the Civil Rights era.
    Forest Whitaker plays a leading part in the movie.

    The original Ku Klux Klan consisted of mostly Democrats.

    The first gun control we had in this country was to prevent blacks from fighting back and defending themselves.

    In many ways, gun control serves the exact same purpose today.
