You are correct, but you're missing the point

Nobody today is making gun control out to be a race issue. However, the historical record shows very clearly how gun control was implemented to promote race-based oppression in the US, which is what I believe the OP is using as an example of gun control oppression.

The take-away from all of this is that gun and arms control measures have always been used by one segment of a population to terrorize and subjugate another, that is all. Slavery being a textbook example, as is the American Indian Genocide and the Japanese Interment. These examples are as relevant today as they were when slavery was practiced, Indians were slaughtered, and the Japanese "resettled", which is why it comes up. The only difference is now we will be the slaves, the Indians, or the Japanese... if they win.
