People did fight 1934 gun law

It’s funny how the left keeps changing history to suit their views. Here is an excerpt from a Chicago paper editorial on the 1934 gun law. Sounds to me like they were trying to protect Second Amendment rights back then also.

“It is notorious that when restrictions are put upon the possession of firearms or any particular kind of weapon they never are effective against the criminal classes but only put the peaceable man at a disadvantage or in a false position before the law. The prohibition does not bother the enemy of society but it makes a technical offender of the decent citizen. The man who would not misuse a weapon is the man who is injured. The drive for public security is thus given the wrong direction.”
