Absolutely! Note that the slaves were the only Americans that were
debarred the use of arms post revolution. Also, the only Supreme Court
decision the anti-gun crowd can point to as supporting their viewpoint,
Cruikshank, is a support of a Jim Crow law by a racist court.

This decision has been widely repudiated, and now finally, it's last
vestige overturned.

The purpose of the lawsuits against the non-federal entities is to
require that the Supreme Court "incorporate" Heller into the states.
Currently it only applies in Federal jurisdiction.
