Bobby Rush: Irony Personified

Bobby Rush is a Democrat Congresscritter from Illinois. With that as introduction...

He has introduced HR45, which:

...would, among other things, require potential gun owners to first apply for a firearm license and before that license would be issued, they would have to present "a certificate attesting to the completion . . . of a written firearms examination."

Irony, anyone?

From the late 1890s through the mid-1960s, African-American citizens in the Deep South were systematically and egregiously denied their voting rights through the administration of so-called "literacy tests."

It took an act of Congress and some Supreme Court rulings to abolish this despicable form of bigotry.

And, yup, you guessed it: Rush is a black.
