Aah the source for this drivel appears.
"Thom Hartmann is certainly not the first person to openly acknowledge the role that protecting slavery played in crafting the second amendment. In an article published in the U.C. Davis Law Review, entitled The Hidden History of the Second Amendment, Professor Carl T. Bogus wrote that the Second Amendment was crafted to assure the southern states that Congress would not undermine the slave system by disarming the militia, which were then the principal instruments of slave control throughout the South."
Bogus, the name fits very well, is a long time opponent of arms rights. A college/collaborator of the infamous Michael A. Bellesiles, who got caught making up his facts in his anti-arms rights screeds, specifically "Arming America".
But as Clayton Cramer has shown, it's really early gun control laws that were designed to keep the newly freed blacks in "their place".
YOU ARE CORRECT. My post 39 identified the radio host as Bob Edwards ; however the name’Thom Hartmann’is who was on the LEFT radio.Thank you for setting me straight.
Have you seen the book ‘Slave Patrol’? Does it attempt to tie Madison and Henry to its thesis?
