despite their claims to the contrary

It is important to remember that “gun control” is a racist institution, and “gun control” always has been a racist institution since time immemorial… and by “racist” I mean the original, apolitical definition of “a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others”.

After all, Florida Supreme Court Justice Buford freely admitted that the laws of 1941 were intentionally and specifically crafted to prevent uppity black people from being able to defend themselves, just like UBU52 wants to prevent uppity black people in inner cities from being able to protect their families and themselves as well.

Some things, it seems, never change.

    Have you seen this report about the racist roots of Georgia’s gun laws?

    Check out the newpaper clipping which formed the title of the report.

  • Yep. And some of the antis even admit it. Journalist Robert Sherrill, who was at one time a correspondent for The Nation, observed that the Gun Control Act of 1968 “was passed not to control guns but to control blacks.” And theeeen, of course, there’s the ignominious origin of the term “Saturday Night Special” and of bans of the guns the term described.

  • @MIkeSilver – Ayup. Georgia’s gun control movement has a particularly hateful, discriminatory history, and the sad thing is that the same tactics and methodologies are being used to this day.

    You would think they would learn.

    @the pistolero – Well, at least some of them possessed the nerve and intestinal fortitude to be honest with themselves and others… would that the current crop of halfwitted anti-rights nuts be cut from the same cloth. At least then I could come close to respecting them.
