  •  Good point. I agree with the president (4+ / 0-)

    and want to point out that this:

    The African-American community is also knowledgeable that there is a history of racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws, everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws. And that ends up having an impact in terms of how people interpret the case.
    applies even more to the start of the gun control movement (Mulford Act, Cali). Applied against those 'scary black men' who armed themselves for protection but hey, you're white? No problem. *shakes head*

    Republicans cause more damage than guns ever will. Share Our Wealth
