But wouldn't it be sweet if the .gov deemed the Chicago Handgun ban a hate crime?
According to the Wiki entry, a hate group is designated as such;
A hate group is an organized group or movement that advocates hate, hostility, or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society.
Common sense would tell you that gun owners are a "other designated sector of society." Today, as the Supreme Court recognized the fundamental, enumerated right for an individual to keep and bear arms, those seeking to usurp and undermine that right should rightfully be considered the same as the KKK, with all the same scorn that they enjoy in today's enlightened society.
Robb Allen has captured The Brady Campaign's Wiki entry, where according to the third paragraph, they're a designated hate group. The VPC Wiki entry should be edited as well.
