    Absolutely correct. In fact the very first gun control was southern Democrats looking to disbar slaves, escaped slaves, and freedmen from firearms ownership. What followed was a decades long period of lynching innocents, KKK domestic terrorism against not only blacks but Catholics and other non-Baptist christians, and those of the Jewish faith.

    As well, current African regimes LOVE gun control, it keeps the weapons in their hands while they are free to rape, oppress, murder, and otherwise pillage their rival tribes. German gun control was the first step to solidifying the Third Reich's position to centralize the Deutschlands into Nazi SS control, we all know how that turned out. Very few dictatorships actually armed their citizens, I believe the only one that did was that of the Iraqi regime, that's the only one I can remember anyway.

    I guess those who hate the fact that gun owners-and more importantly-gun owner advocacy groups tend to vote against the people who push welfare socialism, income redistribution and other collectivist nonsense.

    what we do know is that there is absolutely NO evidence that the gun control laws mainly dem politicians push for make anyone other than criminals safer.


    Given there is almost no empirical evidence supporting the sort of gun restrictions your party pushes for, I can only assume that harassing honest gun owners is what motivates assholes like Lautenberg, McCarthy, Feinswine and other gun hating Democrats
    There are only three attempted violent acts I can remember in places with guns. 1) A news story I clipped out years ago, the headline "Man Attempts Armed Robbery of Gun Store With Knife", it didn't end well for him, but we didn't need to have ESP to predict that one. 2) A man walked into a leather and firearms retailer known to be a popular LEO hangout, he walked past not only a police cruiser but two plane clothes off duty officers(both armed) and pulled on the [also armed] store clerk in front of the two officers and [also armed] patrons of the establishment. He drew, they all drew and told him to stop, he got one shot and minor flesh wound on the armed clerk before earning a Darwin Award for his efforts.
    The last one I know of was an attempted armed robbery of a store, the moron couldn't see through his disguise and accidentally walked in drawn on the armed customers of the gun store next to his target, he didn't accomplish more than becoming worm food.

    And Liberals trying to push a socialistic agenda don't want the population to have guns.

    Which if guns were even banned there are thousands of gun smiths to fill the void. And many more thousands of people with home machine shops. It would make as much since as banning a plant that is easily cultivated.

So that if the Chinese drilling off our coast where we are not allowed to ever decided to sneak soldiers and nukes into the gulf instead of oil rig workers and equipment and invaded Florida blitzkrieg style, I'd have a chance of getting out alive.

    Seriously though, would you own an assault rifle? And if so, why?
    well duh....how else am I going to kill the zombies when the apocalypse comes?

    Which is a very strange post for you Turtle given that in other posts you specifically single out non-white people as having the problems with guns.

    here is one of your statements

    white americans who don't get involved with the drug trade are as safe or safer as white europeans
    and here is another from you

    the point is-our gun violence rate is skewed by 6% of the population. and most of those in that 6% are not causing problems either
    So on the one hand you make a post decrying gun control as ethnic control. Then in other threads, you make posts decrying the "6%" of non whites who actually have the problems with guns.

    Hey American, every time I try to save your image a hack crashes my browser. The same thing happens when I try to quote your post in a reply. My firewall is going nuts.

    If guns were banned only criminals and the government would have guns----------thats why we have the 2nd amendment.

    I don't feel the need for an assault rifle, I can protect myself and my property with my shotguns, and pistols.

    Hell even a lever action .308 and a well placed gold dot would do fine.
