Gun control is racist and sexist.
The main purpose of firearms in our society today is self-defense. Groups that are more vulnerable have a greater need for self protection. Denying the right to self-defense to our entire Society is fundamentally disproportionate to those that are already the most vulnerable.
Like let’s face it rich white people have far fewer concerns about calling the police to come help them… saying that you don’t need guns to protect yourself because the police will come protect you is basically fucking laughable in our society today.
And when it comes to men and women I find it pretty damn hard to believe that many men think to themselves oh shit I might get raped tonight at the bar better take my gun with me… I’m sure we could use some basic metric like the percentage of people who purchase pepper spray or mace when broken down by sex to very easily determine which group perceive themselves to be the most vulnerable to physical assault.
Basically my thesis is this guns help vulnerable people protect themselves and the people who are the most vulnerable are the ones who have the least power in our society, therefore gun control is fundamentally disempowering.
