Let’s be clear that King and many of his supporters owned guns and used them to defend themselves from racists. That Dr. King was killed with a gun doesn’t mean he wasn’t pro-gun. I suppose the same is true of Jesus. He was a carpenter, so he owned and used nails in addition to being killed by them.
Because after Reagan was shot, he pushed for a gun ban…
Except that he didn’t.
As Homer Simpson would say, “If Jesus had had a gun, he’d still be alive today…”
Actually, Reagan was a twat. He banned guns twice. First when he was Governor of California he signed and passed the Mulford Act in 1967 and then in 1986 the passage of he Firearm Owners Protection Act.
Reagan might be the worst false idol in the history of politics. The GOP is constantly pushing him as a small government, libertarian demigod when in reality he banned guns, trampled rights, increased government spending and increased the national debt.
