Gun control at its heart has never been about protecting the 2nd Amendment. It has been to secure white identity politics. This has been proven time and time again- whether with the Black Panthers showing up at the California State Capitol, thus ushering new gun control laws. An exercise pushed by then sitting Governor Ronald Reagan. Or simply the application of the ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws and how it is disproportionately affects black defendants. Hell, every time you even mention ‘Gun Control’ a person marches into the discussion with “What about Chicago?!?” Which is code for black gun violence. So yeah, there’s evidence that my assessment and Garnell Whitfield, Jr. speech is on point.
