What is with gun nuts drawing crazy comparisons between guns and black people...From,Rosa Parks

To Martin Luther King!

What is with gun nuts drawing crazy comparisons between guns and black people stuff?

First the NRA ex-president claimed that people are racist against guns. Then Ted Nugent claimed that gun owners are the new Rosa Parks. Now, Larry Ward, the organizer of Gun Appreciation Day, is claiming that slavery might never have happened if black people — excuse me — “African-Americans” had owned guns.

The irony of how Africans became African-Americans is, apparently, lost on crazy white folks.

Jesus beat me about the head and chest with the wheel.


Go Read the Full Story!!!

1. This must be the republican party's new "outreach" to the Black community!

"Imagine if Martin Luther King had been carrying an AK-15! He would still be alive today!"

These idiots don't even get how nut's they sound!

This is one of the most disgusting comparisons ... how does someone conflate their "right" to own an inanimate object ... with basic human rights denied to other human beings.

Can anyone really be that dumb?

16. From a group,that believes that their love of guns,is more important than innocent lives.

They put ownership of 30-100 round magazines, before children being slaughtered.

They worship cold hard steel...and their illogical need to accumulate bigger more lethal firepower is frightening.

Yup...they are that Stupid!

3. It's no surprise

Gun nuts are arrogant assholes. Their position is that of "Rosa Parks," while their people who disagree with them are "Hitler" and "Stalin." In addition to be arrogant, they're fucking stupid.

7. It's "shielding", which is a very effective tactic ironically started by Glenn Beck

because nobody has the stones to call them out for it...The crazies put themselves in the place of Rosa Parks and MLK, and by definition anyone who criticizes the nuts are criticizing MLK's ideas, too...

10. The NRA narrative is too simplistic

But, there is an unfortunate historical nexus between gun control and white supremacy, with dog whistle remnants that remain today.

12. Just the latest set of Big Lies (AKA NRA Talking Points)

 

They have a large staff of creative writers down at Gun Lobby, oops I mean NRA, Headquarters.

As fast as the current set of lies gets trashed, they generate more to replace it. Then they are distributed to the Delicate Flowers to flood chatboards.

19. What a sick B***h she is!

To compare the color of one's skin..to the color of a gun, then turn around and say that is discrimination!

She and the NRA are out of their ever loving Minds!

I really need to go wash the Filth of me now!

Sorry freshwest...they just make my skin crawl!

22. Thank you, freshwest. I know.

I do, however it still makes me want to cry.

They are truly dispicable...I can only hope that it is because they are in their death spiral.

Jump over here...join another fight!

18. When the concept of "assault weapon" was created...

...a large number of guns targeted were of the modern sort, with black plastic furniture and black finishes on the metal. This was in contrast to "traditional" guns with shiny blued steel and glossy wooden stocks.


Observe:


Non-scary traditional Mini-14




Scary black Mini-14



Super-scary black Mini-14




So the joke was about banning "scary black rifles".



The rest of it is a bit lunacy. Of course, you're quoting Ted Nugent, so that's a given. Black slavery wouldn't have happened if... white people hadn't made slaves of them.

21. less that a week after Sandy Hook I got a FB post that was straight out racist.

It was a Black Dodge Chager and was straight from Drudge/NRA. The premise was that this "Scary Black Machine" was not regulated so why are "Scary Black Guns" being regulated. I ignored the racism but responded that the Charger required insurance, and required Government Documentation when sold from one person to another. The poster could only agree.

Point being, they don't realize that the are racists.
