Wounded Knee

The massacre of Lakota men, women, and children occurred on December 29, 1890.


From Wikipedia:

On the morning of December 29, the troops went into the camp to disarm the Lakota. One version of events claims that during the process of disarming the Lakota, a deaf tribesman named Black Coyote was reluctant to give up his rifle, claiming he had paid a lot for it. A scuffle over the rifle ensued and by the time it was over, more than 150 men, women, and children of the Lakota had been killed and 51 were wounded (4 men and 47 women and children, some of whom died later); some estimates placed the number of dead at 300.

Victim disarmament. Where have we seen that before?

But only police and military should have guns. Right?

  1. And the Cherokee trail of tears, and the bonus army, and Waco, and ….Yes, only the police & military should have guns! And double, triple deadly assault clips, and magazines and, and, and. Because if civilians had them it could be DEADLY!
