In which Ms. Marcotte shows her ignorance:
Where to begin? The modern civil right movement dates from the 1950s. The Second Amendment is a part of the Bill of Rights from 1789. How is it a response to something that came about a century-and-a-half later?
And what about the white NRA members who ran firearm training classes for blacks who wanted to protect themselves from the Klan in the ’50s and ’60s? I guess they don’t fit the narrative.
UPDATE–Stacy McCain blogs at The American Spectator that per Ace’s Marcotte Rule that any controversy relating to the Aurora shootings is now over.
