In North Carolina, you have to have a permit to purchase a handgun. I've read that that law was first put into place to make it harder for "poor blacks" to get them.

Most liberals would look at you like you're nuts, if you tell them that most gun control was put in place to keep blacks from having guns. Then they are confused about who they are supposed to side with. LOL

I have heard that before. Does anyone know about what year that was put into effect?

NC Pistol Purchase Permit lawThe Pistol Purchase permit law was passed in 1919. This law is considered, by most, a classic piece of the Jim Crow laws. Due to the recognition of civil rights for blacks and other minorities, they could exercise their natural right to self-defense with full support of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution and Article I, Section 30, of the North Carolina Constitution. At the time, this did not sit well with the Ku Klux Klan and the racist members of the State Legislature because they knew that they could not prevent blacks and other minorities from purchasing handguns for protection. North Carolina passed the Pistol Purchase Permit law which allowed local sheriffs and government officials to discriminate with impunity at the local level. [1]
