Pure Racism

OK, I don't think it's racist, but if some community leaders view it they may very well take that position. Rightly or wrongly insurance in minority community's tends to be higher, if available at all. In regards to having a gun some people living in high crime areas that may really need a gun may be prohibited because of this legislation. If I lived in NY, I'd send emails to all minority leaders pointing this out. It might be helpful to have some opposition from the left fighting this. Just a thought.

I would point out that the right to keep and bear arms is specifically protected by the Bill of Rights, while the right to operate a specific type of vehicle on government-owned roadways is not.

I see the comparison often, but it's really not apt.

The left will sell it's very own soul if the 2nd Amendment is at stake. Don't expect any consideration in regards to race or civil rights, they don't exist as far as gun control is concerned. The end justifies all means.
