Neither prohibitions on carrying guns nor “may issue” laws are in line with the character of the Constitution and Bill of Rights so Critical Race Theory is not supported by pointing to them. If anything the un-Constitutional nature of those laws proves the opposite about our founding principles than what Bell espoused. That is it is necessary to try to by-pass founding principles in order to pass discriminatory laws.
It is clear by the totality of the evidence so far that Bell is indeed hostile to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, except where it would advance his liberal agenda.
When we have a law, such as existed in Missouri for several generations that prohibited carrying concealed firearms but yet was initially only applied to Blacks but not to whites, we have a pattern that exactly follows Critical Race Theory.
My observation was that Bell and those who champion CRT never have raised, nor would they ever raise, the same objection to laws like this that they raised against other laws that had a similar pattern of deliberate disparate enforcement.
