The Racist Roots of Georgia's Gun Control Laws
An outstanding article from an excellent statewide gun rights organization dedicated to not only halting additional gun control laws in Georgia, but actually rolling back existing prohibitions.
And Georgia is not the only place where outright racial prejudice and discrimination gave rise to gun control laws that oppress us still today, as this 1995 law review article teaches us. New York, for example, passed its Sullivan Law in 1911, allegedly to fight crime in ethnic communities, as noted in this 1905 New York Times editorial:
[The proposed gun control] measure would prove corrective and salutary in a city filled with immigrants and evil communications, floating from the shores of Italy and Austria-Hungary. New York police reports frequently testify to the fact that the Italian and other south Continental gentry here are acquainted with the pocket pistol, and while drunk or merrymaking will use it quite as handily as the stiletto, and with more deadly effect. It is hoped that this treacherous and distinctly outlandish mode of settling disputes may not spread to corrupt the native good manners of the community.
Read both articles, and then think about what lies in store for today's gunowners as a result of the 2008 election, barring a miracle.
You don't really think that the statists, transnational socialists, and their civil service lackeys will allow an armed, educated, trained minority who insist on their God-given Constitutional and human rights to go unchallenged, do you?
Are you ready?
