Here’s a question: what ideas have the anti-gun left devised that will not adversely affect the poor and minorities?
One idea that’s floated around a bit is liability insurance. The idea is that since you’re required to carry liability insurance to drive, a gun owner should also be required to carry liability insurance. And if Representative Maloney of New York has her way, that’ll become law — fat chance in the Republican-controlled House, though.
Setting aside the fact that driving is a privilege while gun ownership is a right protected by the Second Amendment, it is an idea that will adversely affect the lesser fortunate. This becomes especially true for those who live in higher-crime areas, as insurance premiums could be higher simply due to location. This, again, will adversely affect the poor and minorities, concentrating the exercise of gun rights in the better-off and white populations.
So, again, I ask: who is racist, gun control proponents or gun rights advocates?
Gun owners are not just white people living in well-off areas. Yet many of the policy ideas seem to think this is their assumption.
