The 2nd Amendment was about slave patrols

Good history of how the 2nd Amendment came to be and why. It's no wonder why many gun nuts are also racist white nationalists.

"The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says 'State' instead of ' Country'  [...] was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia’s vote.  Founders Patrick Henry, George Mason, and James Madison were totally clear on that . . . and we all should be too."
