In Michigan this crap started about 1927 when a black Doctor (Ossian Sweet) killed a white man who was part of a mob trying to force Sweet out of a “white” Detroit neighborhood.
Sweet was acquitted and it was less that two weeks before the first legislation showed up in Lansing calling for gun registration and approval boards which basically denied all blacks access to guns. From there it didn’t take long for the progs to start excluding others from owning weapons.
Clayton Cramer (IIRC) did a bunch of research in the ‘90s showing that essentially all gun-control legislation had its roots in anti-black bigotry and anti-immigrant (Irish, Italian etc.) bigotry.
Yes, indeed: One of the crown jewels of modern demonicRat domestic policy is at root racist and bigoted. The demonicRat Party truly is the party of hate.
