The historical link between gun control and racist oppression in America is clear enough for anyone who dispassionately examines the record. Most people who are trying to roll back civilian ownership of firearms tend to be quiet about this truth. I’ll even be charitable and allow that some are simply ignorant of it. Not so much for Cedar Crest College Professor (and former Allentown city council member) Michael Donovan . . .
Allentown is one of a number of Keystone State cities that are repealing illegal, unenforceable firearms ordinances out of fear of lawsuits after Pennsylvania’s tough new preemption law was enacted last year. Professor Donavan, who was a a Democratic during his term in office, is upset that Allentown isn’t fighting the law. Why? Well, I’m glad you asked. Here are his words:
“Allentown is the third largest city in the state,” he said. “It is claiming a renaissance for wealthy, white individuals who wish to be safe. I believe the mayor has a responsibility to join the fight against this law.”
So forget the children. If banning guns in city parks saves just one white person…. It’s actually kind of heartwarming to see someone in favor of gun control willing to admit the truth about their agenda, no?
