Through the Looking Glass

I read of a second amendment defender who made the statement that:

"If the slaves had been given the right to keep and bear arms, then slavery might not have done so well in America."

I know that a gun advocate said something like this but am unable to confirm that the statement was also made by a person of more substance. Help me if you can confirm it.

In any case this statement seems to require an new category: looking glass

  2. Google "if slaves had the right to bear arms" and you might find what you are looking for. I found it very interesting reading.

  3. Yes. I have seen a number of references to Larry Ward. A friend and I thought at one point that an AZ congressman named Trent had agreed with the remark. That is what I cannot find now.
