It was desegregation that caused white America to believe that the government had stopped “protecting” them, and so they needed guns.

So you’re arguing that exercising a Constitutional right which had been granted 166 years previously was actually motivated by fear?
Lord have mercy, Amanda: that is about the most jacked up, ahistorical, illogical pile of hooey I’ve heard since the last time #OccupyResoluteDesk opened his pie hole. Please just take a vacation, de-program yourself, and come to grips with the certainly messy, but increasingly pro-liberty, history of your country. It’s taken a long time for technology to get us to where we can realize the dream of the Founders. Those getting zany with the airbrush, like you are here, are no help whatsoever.
