Former NRA president claims that guns are victims of racism.

"Banning people and things because of the way they look went out a long time ago, but here they are again. The color of a gun, the way it looks. It’s just bad politics."

Jan. 17, 1989.

A young, racist drifter clad in combat gear and armed with an AK-47 assault rifle shot up a schoolyard in Stockton, killing five Southeast Asian immigrant children. Patrick Purdy fired more than 100 rounds, wounding 30 other kids — mostly minorities — and one teacher before killing himself.

California GOP Governor George Deukmejian was in Washington, D.C., for George Bush 1's presidential inauguration. He didn't waste time. You didn't hear any nonsense about "waiting for all the facts." Five children were dead. Those were facts.

He embraced state legislation — previously introduced by Senate leader David A. Roberti and Assemblyman Mike Roos, both Los Angeles Democrats — to enact the assault weapons ban.
