Origins of Gun Control Rooted in Racisim

The Times Dispatch of Richmond, VA has an excellent piece from Sunday detailing the roots of most gun control schemes.  As expected, we can see a recurring theme with how the elites of even the early civil rights days, were trying to exercise their complete and total control on one class of people; in this case it was newly freed African Americans. 

As time progressed, it was much easier to extend those laws to all citizens in an effort to control even more of the populace.  Today, it can still be noted by various studies that minorities are still the most impacted citizen class of infringing gun laws, and it will be interesting to see how the plight of those citizens changes over the next few years in a post-incorporation USA.
