An essay by Clayton Cramer detailing the history of gun control that predates the founding of America back to 1751.

The laws where specifically intended to disarm black Americans pre & post Civil War - under the Black Codes and Jim Crow.




The historical record provides compelling evidence that racism underlies gun control laws -- and not in any subtle way. Throughout much of American history, gun control was openly stated as a method for keeping blacks and Hispanics "in their place," and to quiet the racial fears of whites. This paper is intended to provide a brief summary of this unholy alliance of gun control and racism, and to suggest that gun control laws should be regarded as "suspect ideas," analogous to the "suspect classifications" theory of discrimination already part of the American legal system.

I'm not in favour of gun control but this is ridiculous.

Among more learned firearms enthusiasts this is a well known fact. Gun control was originally a method of keeping the black man from fighting back. Especially in the South where the KKK would regularly string up black men and women for fun.
