23. And they go absolutely apeshit when you point out Dr. M.L. King's application for a CCW

I think it was last year on his birthday, or the year before, somebody brought him into a discussion as a "gun control supporter".

When someone pointed out that they didn't hink he was because Dr. King not only owned a handgun, but had applied for a CCW permit (which was of course refused by the white sheriff in his county). The gun control people went nuts. We had people ranting about how we were all racists and demanding we all be Tomb stoned immediately for trying to besmirch his name with evil guns.

Too damn bad when actual history doesn't jibe with their narrow view of history.

In fact I think we had a few threads about it until they got tired or stepped way over the line and got Tomb Stones themselves IIRC.
