What would Bobby do?

What would Bobby do?

US Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL) has sponsored legislation to register nearly every handgun in the US.

I’d like to know how Mr. Rush would have complied with this legislation had it passed in 1969.  Guess he would have registered all his guns, eh?  And probably pressed his associates to do the same.

Mr. Rush was co-founder of the Illinois Black Panther movement.  Oh, by the way, the national Black Panther movement was against all bans on weapons, and made this platform plank known prior to Rush’s involvement.  They were also a violent, racist, and well-armed group.

It’s amazing what one will say once a member of the aristocracy.
