What do expect from a Weather Underground co-founder, Obama appointee and admitted communist hired by the Clinton News Network?

The roots of gun control lie in the policies of the Klan and people who thought like the Klan. The idea of gun control in its early days was to disarm the black man, to make it impossible for him to defend himself against aggression from racists. Lynching, you see, is a much riskier proposition when your target has the means to fight back.

Southern lawmakers of the day passed gun control laws that were worded so they’d apply to anyone, but knew that no white sheriff would apply those rules to white men. They had to make the law look equal, but since they knew that enforcement would be discriminatory, that wasn’t really an issue.

As a son of the South who has lived here my whole life, I’m not proud of this part of our history, but it is what it is.

Be seeing you
