Why Some Members of the Far Left Advocate Against Gun Control

Outside both of these schools of thought, however, lay those on the "left of left"—those with views further left than Democrats—who also have strong opinions on what ought to be done about guns.

While a deep commitment to firearm-ownership rights (and an interest in guns) is typically associated with American conservatives, contingents of the far left also advocate against gun-control laws, though with very different philosophies as to why. On the right, the standard line is that American citizens have a right to bear arms, as guaranteed to some extent by the Second Amendment, in order to protect their families and property from would-be invaders.

Interesting that the members of the far left seem to recognize one of the things we've been saying for years over on the right... that gun control in the US has a racist point of origin, being used by Reconstruction-era Democrats to deny civil rights to free blacks. Then they flip right around and accuse the NRA of being white supremacist because they allegedly advocated taking up arms to defend oneself against BLM!

It just goes to show that you cannot win with the left when they begin the accusations of racism. It's one of their most potent weapons. Gun control is racist, but so are gun rights, apparently; to want to prepare to defend yourself against a domestic terror group that has a documented history of violence is racist, somehow.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. — Edmund Burke
