This is an old article, but I believe it to again be very relevant today. Searched and could not find a prior posting of this article.

The history of Gun Control in the USA is a sordid one, and is absolutely a mechanism to control free men.

Just read up on Dr Ossian Sweet for some background on the racist roots of gun control in Michigan. (1925) A black man had the audacity to move into a white neighborhood and the black man defended his home against the mob and left a white man dead.

Sweet was aquitted and by 1927 the first gun registration law was on the books in Michigan.

(Its also important to note that an all white jury acquitted Sweet)

People like Michael Moore want so much to be good people. They just can’t. They are prime examples of stupid.

The “new Klan” does not need to bully honest black people into laying down their arms. Why bully when wheedling suffices?

Gun Control. Another thing we can thank the Democrats for.

This is another shallow premise, read a bit about the Reconstruction years in the South and you may have the beginning of a rationale for gun control against the carpetbaggers and their crooked black politicians that ruled the south until 1877.....these tools were similar to the current leadership of Detroilet, MI. Wake the hell up and quit listening to the idiot Republicans as well as the crappy Democrats.

Iirc the KKK went to lynch a black man who defended himself with a shitgun. They had him arrested and the court decision was that a shotgun was not a military arm and only military arms were protected by the second amendment.
