However I do not believe in the war on drugs because the government should not tell anyone what to do, but if they think they will get any government benefits, then they are crazy. I don't believe in gun control. I believe that gay marriage should be legal. I also don't believe in deficit spending, or government benefits except those to Veterans. And I don't believe in income tax. My views would be more along the lines of Ron Paul and Gary Johnson.
That is more like the general libertarian beliefs, or at least mine (more or less). I could add to it my thoughts on it but I think this will suffice.

Gun control is racist. Period.

John Lott's book "More Guns, Less Crime" provides extensive statistical demonstration of this fact. His statistics are not based on a tiny, carefully selected set of information (like most gun control studies). His statistics are based on the largest available database relating to gun usage and crime.

He shows repeatedly that increased gun ownership by LACs provides a deterrent effect on violent crime. This effect occurs for the population as a whole and for each and every subgroup, men/women/children, young/middle-aged/old, black/white/hispanic/etc. The largest statistical reduction in violent crime due to gun ownership is found for blacks in the inner city.

And yet, many of the largest cities (New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, need I go on?) still deny their people the RKBA.

Is gun control racist? Yes, yes it is.

is gun control racist? yes it is and i agree, and the race they are trying to control is the law abiding gun owner, regardless of sex, race or age.

well said Balota!

Well, if GC is racist, it's got plenty of company.

So is the POTUS, everybody who voted for him,

and everybody who didn't.

What's the point here? Reverse -racism?

Gun-control as a miserably, if generally

unrecognized, failed social experiment?

What's the pinnacle of this dialogue?

Because the obvious has been breached,

and beaten to death.

Here in NC people like William Barber (NAACP Leader) are the biggest fans of gun control. If gun control is racist why do minorities want it so badly? You never see the bastardized white male on TV asking for gun control on a local level. The only gun control "Bubba" wants is to be able to hit his target.

Why do minorities want it so badly? Damned if I know. They do seem to follow the Democrat platform. Maybe that's part of it, but there must be more to it.

McDonald v Chicago was about a black man who lived in a bad neighborhood. That case led SCOTUS to incorporation of 2A to the States, Illinois in particular. Despite his SCOTUS decision, he still can't carry.

Inner city dwellers in general and blacks there in particular have the most to gain (safety, reduced violent crime, etc) from INCREASED GUN OWNERSHIP.

The world wonders!
