The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

Hillary Clinton calls for gun controlAfter they lost the Civil War and were forced to free the slaves, Democrats looked for other ways to bully black Americans.  A significant part of the history of gun-control laws in America is the history of Democrats trying to keep black people from defending themselves (see, e.g., “The Great Equalizer: Civil rights and the Second Amendment” and “Gun Control and Racism”).

Today it’s fashionable for Democrats to be pro-black instead of anti-black (simply treating all people as people, regardless of color, continues to elude them), but some things never change.  In response to the terrible shooting of Christians at worship in Charleston, South Carolina (including a state legislator and several pastors) two days ago, Hillary Clinton, like clockwork, called for more gun control.

In a speech yesterday, she opined that after the shooting, “We have to face hard truths about race, violence, guns, and division.”  She asked, “How many innocent people in our country, from little children to church members to movie theater attendees, how many people do we need to see cut down before we act?”

“Act” how, exactly?  In an interview later the same day, she was more blunt:  “Let’s just cut to the chase – it’s guns.”

Ah, more gun control.  We’ll get right on that.

    Thus, they will continue, regardless of the motivations, whether racist bigotry, vengefulness against employers / fellow employees, bitterness against women, etc. etc. or just plain insane murderous hatred of one’s fellow humans.

  3. […] presidential candidates keep making an election-year issue of gun control (see discussions from June and July of last year), but it just keeps getting […]
