70. Roots of gun control

NY's 1911 Sullivan Law, a may-issue handgun licensing scheme, was enacted by corrupt Tammany Hall politicians to make sure that only their goons would be armed. The current may-issue criteria in NYC give preference to celebrities and people who transport large amounts of cash or jewelry. Apparently, their lives are more important than those of the hoi polloi.

California's Mulford Act, banning open carry, was drafted in response the Black Panthers engaging in armed patrols of the city of Oakland. The Panthers responded by staging an open-carry protest at the state capitol, but the Act was subsequently passed with "urgency." Ronald Reagan was Governor of California at the time. The Mulford Act is still in effect.
