Does anyone feel that gun control is an act of racism?

Just curious to see if anyone else thinks what I'm thinking.

    Curious - why do you think gun control is racist?

    I realize the people who live in poor neighborhoods have far less police protection; removing guns from them increases their risk of vicimization. However, there are poor of all races; so I don't see the racism connection.

    Gun Control? my signature covers my view....[:D]

    Gun Control = FIRM GRIP!

    The early history of gun control in this country was indeed Rascist in nature..directed towards Blacks,then poor Irish in New York.

    Gun Control as practiced by the corrupt slobs in Congress is STILL somewhat Racist..because by driving up the costs involved in buying a gun..it makes it much more difficult for a poor person to afford one..and Minorities make up a disportunate share of the poor...

    However,the direction gun control has taken since 1968 has increasingly been less about 'controlling crime'..and MUCH more about making the world safe for the Elite...

    Is gun kontrol racist? Absolutely, and not just against blacks.

    Consider this:

    PERPETRATOR GOVERNMENT DATE TARGET # MURDERED (ESTIMATED) DATE OF GUN CONTROL LAW SOURCE DOCUMENT

    1. Ottoman Turkey 1915-1917
    Target: Armenians, 1-1.5 million killed.
    Edict used: Art. 166, Penal Code passed in 1886, Art. 166 Penal Code passed in 1911.

    2. Soviet Union 1929-1953
    Target: Anti-Communists, Anti-Stalinists, 20 million killed.
    Edict used: Art. 182 Penal Code passed in 1929.

    3. Nazi Germany & Occupied Europe 1933-1945
    Target: Jews, Gypsies, Anti-Nazis 13 million killed.
    Edict used: 1928 and 1938 Law on Firearms
    & Ammunition, April 12
    Weapons Law, March 18

    4. China 1949-1952, 1957-1960, 1966-1976
    Target: Anti-Communists, then Rural Populations, then Pro-Reform Group 20 million killed.
    Edicts used: 1935, 1957 Arts. 186-7, Penal Code
    Art. 9, Security Law, Oct. 22

    5. Guatemala 1960-1981
    Target: Maya Indians, 100,000 killed.
    Edict used: 1871, 1964 Decree 36, Nov 25
    Decree 283, Oct 27

    6. Uganda 1971-1979
    Target: Christians, Political Rivals 300,000.
    Edict used: 1955, 1970 Firearms Ordinance, Firearms Act

    7. Cambodia 1975-1979
    Target: Educated Persons 1 million killed.
    Edict used: 1956 Weapon laws.

    How about that? From 1915 - 1980, millions were murdered by their own governments.

    Ok, I have one more for you.

    Post Civil War laws passed by many states targeting inexpensive firearms, which at that time was the most many blacks could afford. At later time, these DEMONKRATS admitted it was to keep guns out of black peoples' hands. Result: nearly 4,000 defenseless blacks lynched and killed by Klansmen and their ilk before these laws were removed from the books.

    And it isn't just racist, either.... it's sexist, and elitist, too.

    And I won't support things of this nature.



    Death to Tyrants!!!
    Lev 26:14-39

    Those who would offer any interpretation that would relegate Amendment II to "relic" status of a bygone era are blatantly stating that the remainder of the Bill of Rights isn't worth a damn, either.
