I happen to work with a gentleman who is in to "PC" & "Diversity" . He is African-American with a do-gooder attitude towards everything. He will frequently regurgitate information that he is fed but is not real knowledgeable about his beliefs.
I want to initiate a discussion with him about gun control sometime, but I want to have my argument well prepared. I recall reading that gun control was originally started as a tool to keep the freed slaves from owning firearms. Is there any truth to this? If so, can someone point me to some links that document this fact. I would like to be able to cite the source to him. I'm not expecting this to help, but on the off chance I can challenge him to check it out, I hope to at least plant a seed.
