I think I've figured out a way to get ...

a majority of NRA members to support some measure of gun control ... It came to me last night, while I was watching Spike Lee's, Malcolm X.

I'm going to organize a nation-wide "Million Black Man AR-15 Gun Buy" rally for February 1st ... just in time for "Black History Month."

The weapon will be banned before the close of January.

2. Remember the tea partier who was carrying an AR-15 4 years ago at protests

and causing all kind of hullaballoo?

He was black.

I thought it was interesting that you could read 99% of the stories about him and never find that out

Also, you might find this interesting: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/negroeswithguns/

In the 50's, at least, the NRA was more than happy to help Rob Williams. But the NRA also wasn't such complete assholes back then.

12. Yes ...

I know about that guy; he's here in Arizona (and a complete religious nut-job).

I think his being Black and carrying the AR-15, would be seen differently; if it were him and a million other Black men ... that certainly would not go unnoticed by the media.

And regarding the '50s, that was before the current climate, read: having a Black President, took hold. Times have achanged.

3. That is what happen to loaded open carry in California

The Black Panthers did it in Sacremento and next think you know, it was against law.

Gun control has a long history of racism and classism.

7. Sick, but true!

The instant brown people start brandishing weapons, there will be an clamor for a ban and a crackdown like you wouldn't believe!

11. Great minds think alike, but it had to be you who said it. Kudos!

Go for it! The gun nuts will be caught between a rock and a hard place: oh dear, a Black president they fantasize will seize their guns, or a "Million Black Man AR-15 Gun Buy" rally celebrating the 2nd Amendment!

In our dreams, anyway. LOL

14. Celebrating ...

not only the 2nd Amendment; but "Black History Month", too, because a whole chapter could be written on Gun Control and The Black Community.

13. You are absolutely right.

It's very disheartening, but you are 100% right.

15. I also heard from a secret source known only to me close to the Administration that

all gun control measures, and they have already been written and secretly passed by the Democrats, are going to exempt Blacks and Hispanics.
