Things would be different in America if African-Americans had guns in the '60s

A few weeks ago, Rush Limbaugh said this:

    Try this. If a lot of African-Americans back in the ’60s had guns and the legal right to use them for self-defense, you think they would have needed Selma? I don’t know, I’m just asking. If John Lewis, who says he was beat upside the head, if John Lewis had had a gun, would he have been beat upside the head on the bridge? Anyway, that’s what we’re — and these people that think like Brokaw are all over the media. This is the way they’re looking at this. (here)

In talking with a friend a while ago, I was thinking about these other times minorities with guns would have made a difference.

For instance, imagine what would have happened if the Japanese-American citizens interned during World War II had guns, armed with infantry weapons used by the military? Imagine the outcry if those same Japanese-American citizens had used those weapons to wage war against our Government, I mean, their government during a time of war. Imagine the outcry from white Americans and the push for gun control, in the name of preserving the peace.
