3. Sorry, but this strategy has "New Coke" written all over it.

Twenty-five years ago it might have worked. But modern-day NRA members aren't going to go for this at all.

5. "modern-day NRA members aren't going to go for this at all"

 

Neither will the "urban" shooting enthusiasts! (Folks, can you hear that "dog whistle"?)

But catchy hip hop background music. I can just picture all the doughy NRA pantloads breakin' some moves to that music!

4. Interesting approach

And a potentially smart move on the part of the NRA instead of calling for schools to be turned into armed camps.

I know, I know, they still want that, too. But it'll be interesting to see if this ad campaign develops any legs or self-destructs.

7. I'm sure they'll welcome these "urban" shooting enthusiasts with open arms!

 

Free memberships in their gun clubs maybe?!!!

NRA....... out of touch and crazy!

In full body armor, of course.

9. Trust the same government that used dogs and fire hoses on them?

 

I wonder what this paid NRA shill "Colion Noir" thinks would have happened if the peaceful protesters in Selma would have tried to defend themselves against the police abuse with firearms?!!

11. Fact is, gun control laws first came into existence because blacks were arming themselves

Bobby Seale and the Black Panthers' scared whitey and whitey had to make sure they couldn't fight back.

Blacks were the original anti-gun control group.

19. They'll be s-s-skeert and buy more guns

You don't think the NRA is doing this out of a concern for racial equality, do you?

Those racist survivalist 'bagger gunhumper-types aren't going to handle this idea very well.......

13. Did anyone else think that clip was gonna be something from "Chappelle's Show"?

Even the name "Colion Noir", sounds like it could've been a Chappelle character...as does the phrase "Urban Gun Enthusiast".
The guy even looks a bit like Dave Chappelle.

16. Like the Chappelle skit.........

 

...... where he's a blind black "white supremacist"!

Yessssss!!!!! It DID remind me of that Chapelle skit!

And the guy's name....... "Colion" the common spelling is Colin (like Colin Powell) and then there's "colon" (you know what that is). And "Noir" (means "Black" in French). Wouldn't it be hilarious if this kid was hoaxing the NRA?

15. Inviting white flight.


The NRA has the same dilemma as Conservatives and Republicans. If they appeal to racial minorities, their White base will bolt. They'll complain about the minorities getting special treatment, and they'll say the concerns of Whites aren't being addressed.

None of this will be racist, of course.

17. I've heard some creative names at the inner city schools where I work but "Colion Noir?"

WTF? This sounds like a hoax to me.

"Colion" strangely looks like one of my former students who's a known pot dealer.

20. They already did with their "Hey, white folks. Better arm yourself" campaign.

The whole point of that one was to get minorities scared, so they would get guns

22. WTF?! The Racist Freaks Rant That Obama Is Going To Raise An Angry Mob Of Black People

and yet it's the NRA advocating giving guns to black people.

I say again WTF?

So the NRA is an agent in carrying out Obama's secret plan?

23. Mixed messages, eh?

 

Gee! Which NRA message should I believe?

Believe it or not........ years ago..... the NRA used to be a respectable organization dedicated to firearms education, safety training and sports competition.

Now they are a bunch of crazy racist teabaggers who operate as a PAC for the gun manufacturers and the GOP!
