The Wall Street Journal editorial board published an interesting editorial today about one aspect of the RKBA: Search on Google for “white supremacy” and “gun rights” and you’ll see plenty of articles claiming the Second Amendment is a tool for white America. But a new paper from Clemson University economists Michael Makowsky and Patrick Warren finds the opposite is true. They say gun ownership helped black Americans defend themselves when no one else would. The key finding of “Firearms and Lynching” is clear: “Rates of Black lynching decreased with greater Black firearm access” in the Jim Crow South. In other words, when black Americans couldn’t count on the cops to protect them, guns made a difference." The Clemson paper can be downloaded at https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3727462 I can't post the whole WSJ article, which summarizes the Clemson paper, because the printed version specifically says -- "This copy is for your personal, non-commercial use only.
