What makes this interesting is that his statement is actually correct, but his attempt at reasoning is completely and utterly wrong base on actual historical facts.
Yes, so-called “gun control” laws, especially the federal ones, are race based policies designed to deny black (and other minority) citizens their Second Amendment Rights, and the majority of them were passed by democrats.
For the whole story, read The Racist Roots of Gun Control, which was originally published in the Kansas Journal of Law and Public Policy back in 1995.
Here is the executive summary:
The first so-called “gun control” laws passed in the United States were in Southern states right after the end of the Civil War. They were implemented to protect members of the KKK from being shot by citizens the Klan members still considered uppity property when the Klan showed up in the middle of night to string a few American Citizens up by the neck as a warning to other black Americans to ‘keep their place.”
Even before the Civil War, the Tennessee state constitution had the following line in it: ” “That the free white men of this State have a right to keep and to bear arms for their common defense.” Note that free ‘persons of color’ were denied the basic Human Right of effective self-defense. They were to be at the mercy of ‘their betters.’ Yes, even then, those who today would be self-labeled “progressives” were closet aristocrats.
