You don't even need to go back that far. Think Huey Newton's march on the CA state house when Regan was governor. That was all about arming blacks and led to the banning of guns in government buildings. Modern gun rights activists can thank the socialist black panther party for starting the movement. I doubt many NRA members appreciate or even realize that. I still want to hear Wayne Lapierre call for more guns for the ghetto to stop gun violence in our inner cities. What are the chances???

Weapons controls have been used for hundreds of years to keep people in line by the people that have them vs the people that don't. Farmers in England were put to death if they were caught with a bow n arrow and most edged weapons. It was one of the reasons that the staff was perfected as a very lethal weapon, how can you outlaw a stick :-)
New York's gun laws were a direct result of NY business men saying no to the police who collected protection money for the tweed administration, they had too many cops shot by business's who refused to pay the graft. They tried to blame it on the Irish immigrants and a way to reduce crime. Tweed got Sullivan to push it through and make it law. Most of us pro gun people have seen this all before all through history.

Maybe, but gun control was used to control blacks access to weapons, the better to keep them away from the polls come election time. Does the Dred Scott and Chief Justice Robert Taney ring a bell ?
Just an excerpt from his brief.
The fear of blacks with guns was one of the reasons behind the Supreme Court’s notorious decision in the Dred Scott case. Chief Justice Roger Taney’s opinion insisted that blacks could not be citizens because, if they were, they’d have all the protections of the Bill of Rights, including the right to “full liberty of speech... to hold public meetings on political affairs, and to keep and carry arms wherever they went.”

Is this more to your liking? The Atlantic is considered moderate. I'm also surprised you have a problem with copy/paste jobs since you seem rather fond of them yourself, lol.

fistv is also right. The history of gun control in the US is the history of minority groups and immigrants starting with French Acadian Catholics in colonial times who could not be trusted to pledge allegiance to the King, black slaves and blacks after emancipation, Irish immigrants, the Mafia, etc etc. etc. You should try some further reading.

I have yet to tell you what you ought to read cut or paste. Somehow you think you have the right to decide for me. Typical progressive tripe poster.

I think most of us have been discussing the sorry state of the media and their failure to report anything detrimental to the Democratic Machine. I don't suppose that machine and their useful idiots like that conversation. Let them stomp their feet and call us names. It doesn't change the facts if a media outlet fails to report it. Interesting that the supposedly tolerant dems are so intolerant of so many things.
