    was definitely racist and classist, so that's recent past if not present.

    It's been a hundred years, isn't it time we stopped blaming Captain Smith for sinking the Titanic?

        if keeping guns from poor people is done because we think poor people are especially dangerous and crime-prone, I think there's a little bit of racism there.

        If keeping guns from poor people is done as a first step towards keeping guns from as many people as possible... then the NRA is exactly correct in calling it a step down what is intended to be a slippery slope.
