Not really. Especially the Portuguese, as well as the Dutch, French and English, were performing raids on black tribes in which slaves were captured.

those damn europeans,  can't play fair

Not to mention the number of black slaves the chinese had. But they would only allow them to land in china after they had been castrated, so no one is forcing the chinese to apologise for their past as there is no one to apologise too.

and it worked

Well, there was no American identity around the 1500s. But they were for sure trading them to the Americas, or were even from the Americas.

In the 1500's we did more exportation of Native American slaves and importation of Indian slaves. It is never wise to keep a slave close to his homelands a dumb man once wrote.

According to studies done by anti-slavery groups, there are currently more slaves today than at any time in history! Three quarters are female and over half are children. It is believed that there are around 27 million people in slavery right now. Furthermore, this number does not include people who are not technically slaves but are in a form of servitude tantamount to slavery. This is sometimes called “unfree labor”. The average slave today costs around $90 – whereas in the past they cost upwards of $40,000 (in today’s money). A study done at Berkeley University estimates that there are around 10,000 slaves in the United States at the moment

Slavery is currently illegal and against the Constitution in the USA. So that is 10,000 people + that are in violation of Federal Law. Perhaps ICE will do something this tremendous problem. Or even DHS.

Until I see some figures on Black legal vs illegal gun ownership Im not buying. Gun control is all about us whiteys.

White's not the point.  The point is they didn't want people to have guns who may fight back against being repressed.

Interesting article OverSword, I hadn't really seen historical gun control strung together in such a way before. I had completely forgotten about the Sullivan Law.
Thanks for sharing :)

Africa had slaves well before America was even discovered...do we blame the white man for that?

Am sick about the black slave thing, Greeks, Romans, AFRICA all had slaves too. The black slaves in America were not the first on this planet. Many would have not been slaves if their families had not sold them in the first place...not all were "stolen"!!!
Again, I didn't post this as a white vs black thing.  I posted this as an example of the real reason behind gun control.  I don't know how you could read the article and not get that.  The UCLA professor who's work the article is based on clearly said he used to be for gun control until he studied the history of gun control and saw the true purpose behind it.  It's not about guns, the active word is CONTROL.

Im not certain not allowing slaves guns was more about keeping a group enslaved and self preservation then it was about actual gun control.

There's a lot of threads about guns these days, I've noticed.  Is there a reason for this?

Its the worlds obsession with Americans owning guns that fuels these debates. I can only think of one American (ND) that really has an opposing view on these topics. It is common knowledge that NATO would like the American people disarmed.

Before the Civil War, blacks were never allowed to own guns.

These days in the UK, they're almost the only people with them!

(Just another 'only whites can be racists' article) Nothing new there.

You missed the point sir, and that is understandable from your perspective from across the pond.
