And for a party like the Democrats, so fixated on race, this is problematic because ultimately their blue city policies result in unequal gun rights for law-abiding minorities in inner city, high crime areas. Taken in this light, gun control can come across as being as anti-African American as the old segregationist policies that kept African Americans unarmed in the Democrats Confederacy and the Democrats Jim Crow South.
SAF founder Alan Gottlieb touched on these things when he spoke to Breitbart News about the Equal Gun Rights campaign.
