We do have unity. The details are blurry and there is virtually nothing but disinformation going around and the issue is all emotion and no thought, but our unity can't be ignored (Obama and Reid cannot even get a vote in Congress on the current gun control because they don't have the votes)
The reason I made this thread was for people who don't understand our argument that gun control = people control. I figured that most of the people who don't see that argument are usually race/slavery obsessed and they can't have rational discussion past that. This is clear example that they should be able to relate to, that is we need to think of it from a minority standpoint and the rights of minorities. Like speech, majorities do not need protection as much as minorities.
And for the record yes I believe every person who has been enslaved throughout history against their will (not indentured servitude) should have had access to a weapon sometime during their slavery, hopefully before they were taken slaves so they could make their own decision how their life and fate would be determined. Slavery is the extreme opposite of Freedom, and Freedom is worth fighting for, and it's better to have a fighting chance than to be helpless and bound to another's will.
