Interestingly, the earliest gun control measures were instituted due to recently freed slaves having rights. They were selectively applied (Jim Crow laws). The lie is gun control reduces crime but when scrutinized the more onerous the restrictions, prohibitions and outright bans that apply only to honest law abiding citizens, ironically the crime rates go up. Decades of honest criminology data support this. Gun prohibitionist deceptively promote gun control as crime control but it's not. MAIG (embraced by Mayor Reed), VPC, Brady gang and other gun prohibitionist ignore honest data create pseudoscience and statistical puffery to entice a naïve public, unaware of the 20,000 firearm laws we currently enjoy. They ignore that most "gun violence" is attributed to low income inner city gang and drug crime. Rather than confronting those issues they attack an inanimate object purportedly protected by the bill of rights. Perhaps if Bloomberg spent his millions for inner city youth programs that taught special skills and trades that would help those who wanted help, then perhaps effective steps at reducing crime could be realized.
