Alton Sterling was a convicted felon that turned out to have been in possession of a firearm at the time of his death.
The Federal prohibition of felon in possession was part of the Gun Control Act of 1968.
The Sterling case among the other big events of the past handful of days has gotten Democrat and black politicians screaming about the need for gun control.
If such legislation passes, eventually, it will have to be enforced on problematic black bodies like Alton Sterling.
Help me, I’m getting dizzy.
Of course, I’m not really getting dizzy, because I know all this Democrat and black noise about gun control isn’t really a thing, it’s diversionary noise to keep us from thinking about our boy Micah X. and the reasons why he did what he did, on top of the earlier effort to keep gay donors from noticing the ten ton wedges that Trump is dropping between them and the blue team war chest, and to top it all off, it makes for good Democrat fund raising letters.
