The Racist Roots of Gun Control are still alive today

Daily CallerIllinois Democratic Rep. Danny Davis says it is acceptable for only wealthy individuals having access firearms if a 50 percent federal tax on all guns and ammunition becomes law.

“So if rich people can only get firearms then only rich people would be able to pay the price and if that could prevent some people from getting them, I’d want to prevent all people from getting them,” Davis told The Daily Caller. “But if rich people were willing and would continue to pay the high price, then I’d be happy that we kept the other group from getting them.”

By "the other group" he means black people. Some people would look at that and say I was playing the race card, but that's not true. I'm playing the historical civil rights card. Democrats really did pass gun control laws to prevent black people having guns. That's not me saying it, I'm fine with every American having full 2nd Amendment rights regardless of race. But historically, Democrats are not.
