People who embrace gun control are really racists in nature

    I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday about the Black Panthers from the 1960s, and the subject of gun control laws came up. He mentioned several things about the connection between gun control and blacks of which I was not aware. Intrigued, I decided to do a bit of research on my own.

    The thread title is an excerpt of a quote from Detroit resident General Laney, the founder and prime mover behind a little publicized organization known as the National Black Sportsman's Association, often referred to as "the black gun lobby." Here's the full quote:

    ==> More about General Laney

    Eldridge Cleaver, a member of the Black Panther Party, had this to say in 1968:

    ==> Fascinating information from William R. Tonso, professor of sociology at the University of Evansville

    I'll leave the rest for you to read.

    Discuss.

    Bullshit.
    How's that for discussion?

    Was it a black man that made the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan, thus spurring the Brady Bill?
    How is that racist?
    Kennedy?
    Lincoln?
    Lennon?


    The only race connection is purely circumstantial in that, percentage-wise, blacks have a higher felony conviction rate.
    But I'm sure these same felons still have just as many (if not more) firearms.
    Hence the saying, "When you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns".

    I admit to being a 'skimmer'..... too many tabs going at once.
    :razz:
    While there may have been some factions, at certain times in the past, that had that desire I can't agree that it's *all* about race.

    The reason for gun control lies within it's own name.
    "Control"

    Of course it's not all about race. I posted two quotes which made that immediately obvious. However, as my friend pointed out, there is a racial element to it as he explained to me and as my research demonstrated.

    Historically, there were racial elements to voter registration laws. That doesn't mean that modern day laws are racist, or that anyone supporting such laws does so for racist reasons.

    Xsited1, ah come on, I give you more credit than believing that nonsense.

    Ask a stupid person a question and you get a stupid answer. Next question could be around any topic that is more complex than the completely obvious. And sometimes the completely obvious is debated.

    The original problem the Black Panhthers had was OPENLY ARMING THEMSELVES.

    That's when they police startedf targeting them, folks.

    It all went pretty much downhill from that point.

    So to some extent Laney is spot on.
