    Do you think gun control is explicitly or implicitly racist? Please explain.

    Umm... what? How could gun control be racist?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    How could gun control possibly be construed as racist? It's not like just one race of people has guns and the rest don't.

    .....do black people own all the guns or something?

    Many of the original gun control laws were designed to keep guns away from Blacks, and so were, obviously, based on race.

    Today, however, gun control is not motivated by race.
