    My point is that is one of the reasons why I am in favor of people being able to exercise their Second Amendment rights. As an American and an American "of color" I don't want anyone infringing upon my rights.

    I'm willing to bet that Coulter didn't cover this in her article:

    "The Panthers’ methods provoked an immediate backlash. The day of their statehouse protest, lawmakers said the incident would speed enactment of Mulford’s gun-control proposal. Mulford himself pledged to make his bill even tougher, and he added a provision barring anyone but law enforcement from bringing a loaded firearm into the state capitol.

    Republicans in California eagerly supported increased gun control. Governor Reagan told reporters that afternoon that he saw “no reason why on the street today a citizen should be carrying loaded weapons.” He called guns a “ridiculous way to solve problems that have to be solved among people of good will.” In a later press conference, Reagan said he didn’t “know of any sportsman who leaves his home with a gun to go out into the field to hunt or for target shooting who carries that gun loaded.” The Mulford Act, he said, “would work no hardship on the honest citizen.” "
    (Reagan signed that Act.)

    In short, history sometimes repeats itself and if you read this article below, it can articulate my point much better than I can.

    "Whitey" is still running the show and they aren't going to disarm themselves.
