"My concern is that past motivations for disarming blacks are really not so different from the motivations behind disarming law-abiding citizens today. In the last century, the rhetoric in support of such laws was that "they" (i.e. blacks) were too violent and too untrustworthy to be allowed weapons. Today, the same elitist rhetoric regards law-abiding Americans the same way, as children in need of guidance from the government."

Reader comments about this quote:
Just another aspect of "Gun Control" really being " People Control". All the Utopian Political Posturing in the world doesn't change the fact that gun control is about keeping the serfs in check. It has nothing whatever to do with public safety.

    I think it is right on. In fact the quote from General Laney is most appropriate as well, "Gun control is really race control. People who embrace gun control are really racists in nature. All gun laws have been enacted to control certain classes of people, mainly black people, but the same laws used to control blacks are being used to disarm white people as well."

    Dictaters such as Hitler, Stalin, Castro, Mao,and so forth, made sure that the people were disarmed first. I doubt that you will see many armed citizens in North Korea either.

    Very true. That is why most cities with predominantly black populations have gun control.

    An astute in the obvious observation
