In an article that points out how "good intentions" and "nice sounding" goverment programs have racist roots. Michael Dawson point out the that modern gun control started out as explicitly racist.
Which is interesting because on January 20, 2021 Michael Dawson wrote for cracked. The 4 Racist Defining Moments In Gun Control History.
Which I commented on here.
In fact this current article seems to crib the section about the Mulford Act from his previous article.
But hey, it still counts.
