The historical record provides compelling evidence that racism underlies gun control laws -- and not in any subtle way. Throughout much of American history, gun control was openly stated as a method for keeping blacks and Hispanics "in their place," and to quiet the racial fears of whites. This paper is intended to provide a brief summary of this unholy alliance of gun control and racism, and to suggest that gun control laws should be regarded as "suspect ideas," analogous to the "suspect classifications" theory of discrimination already part of the American legal system.

Racist arms laws predate the establishment of the United States. Starting in 1751, the French Black Code required Louisiana colonists to stop any blacks, and if necessary, beat "any black carrying any potential weapon, such as a cane." If a black refused to stop on demand, and was on horseback, the colonist was authorized to "shoot to kill." [1] Slave possession of firearms was a necessity at times in a frontier society, yet laws continued to be passed in an attempt to prohibit slaves or free blacks from possessing firearms, except under very restrictively controlled conditions. [2] Similarly, in the sixteenth century the colony of New Spain, terrified of black slave revolts, prohibited all blacks, free and slave, from carrying arms. [3]

Yeah, not in the same ballpark. Drug control yes. Gun control yes. Farming and pissing.... Hardly. Thanks for playing.

The legislation to own slaves and have segregated restrooms is equal to the origins of gun control.

I think people would think more highly of the Limitless Gun crowd if they just didn't speak in public.

This reminds me of the vid of the guy protesting AR bans in the street with his AR strapped around his neck. Cops confronted him to make sure it wasn't chambered and magazine wasnt loaded and let him go on his way.

YouTube it. "Man with AR confronted by police." I'm on my phone.

Nice pic of the lady holding that Mosin Nagant in the OP pic. Beautifully crafted Russian sniper rifle. I own a 1942 model.
