Cartoon: Black History and Guns

Mass shootings again this week, and black communities are dealing with the impacts of more folks murdered by police. The air is heavy with every kind of feeling. Still, some jackasses say this isn’t the time to talk about guns.

But guns have never been separate from race in America. It goes much further back than Reagan signing the Mulford Act to stop the Black Panthers from carrying guns in the 60s. To see even a sliver of it, you have to go all the way back to the founding of the country. I brought in this little cartoon to drop that knowledge.
