When Black Panthers Carried Guns, Conservatives Supported Gun Control
The debate around guns has not always been the partisan stalemate it is today. But it has, like so many other political issues in the US, always been partly about race.

The Amnesty International travel advisory is hilarious, left wing hysteria.

Your brain somehow chose to point out the absurdity of an advisory, but somehow made no mention of something that is 100x more absurd?

The argument that everyone should have guns and we would all be safer as such is insane. Apart from all the data and the other good arguments as to why it is insane, just think about how safe you would feel in this scenario:


You take you family to the lake for a week. 30 families are camping nearby your tent and your family. All members of this large lake group age 18 or older are carrying various types and sizes of guns at all waking hours. So maybe 50-60+ adults, a couple dozen pseudo adults aged 18-25, all packing heat in close proximity, and more than a couple dozen children in the mix.

How safe would you feel in your own person? How safe would you feel for your spouse and children? By the way, one of which is a high school senior boy and is walking around with a handgun 16 hours per day for the week, oh yeah and he is just getting into smoking weed and drinking light beers with other idiots his age.

Feel safe?


Now multiply that feeling many millions of times over in our crowded urban spaces, or at any large event, and extend it from a week to all the time and forever.

No thank you!

100,000,000 plus people live in open carry jurisdiction. That picture is silly. Lots of silly stuff on the internet. I am not an idiot, so my attention is drawn more to Amnesty International issuing a travel advisory to USA as opposed to a silly picture on the internet.

Feel free to also post silly pictures of puppies with machine guns.

Anyone advocating more guns as a solution is simply a massive dumb**** who sniffed too much glue..or comes from the small dick clan of gun ownership, probably both. Welp pal, more guns ain't gonna solve either problem.

The U.S. has experience 1+ mass murder shooting every day this year, plus. More mass murder shootings in the U.S. than days in 2019.

Gun nuts, STFU...and go eat your damn gun.

Why are you focused on Amnesty International's travel warning?

Feel free to be worried about a special interest group's PR campaign but the rest of us are more worried about radical white terrorism which has been completely unchecked by our federal government.

Reminds me of something Trump once said (if you substitute islam for whitism):

Quote:

"Many of the principles of radical whitism are incompatible with Western values and institutions. Radical whitism is anti-woman, anti-gay and anti-American," Trump said June 13. "If we want to protect the quality of life for all Americans women and children, gay and straight, Jews and Christians and all people then we need to tell the truth about radical whitism."

Your first point is just an anecdote. "100,000,000 plus people live in open carry jurisdiction." And? Where is the end of your story?

Here is one possible ending:

100,000,000 plus people live in open carry jurisdiction. Did you know that a 1% increase in gun ownership in an area in the US correlates to a 1.1% increase in firearm death and a 0.7% increase in overall homicide rate, other factors being controlled for(poverty, race, etc)? Thoughts and prayers for those 100,000,000, right?

The mass murder statistics that claim one plus per day include gang violence. We have averaged more than one "mass shooting" per day for decades.

Police Lt. Mike Lewis:

"All we know is the fact that he walked in here heavily armed with body armor on, in military fatigues and caused a great amount of panic inside the store. So, he certainly had the capability the potential to harm people."

But Missouri is open carry. People at Walmart were totally overreacting according to your worldview.

They should take away his guns, psychology evaluate him, and charge him with an applicable crime, such as mayhem. You obviously do not understand my worldview.

I guess oski003 is a gun grabber.

If we are a nation of laws, how can the police take his guns without due process?

He didn't break any of your precious laws though. He is the protagonist of your gun fantasy.

Further, why would you charge someone with mayhem when you clearly don't even know how mayhem is defined by law? Why not charge him with reckless driving, it is just as relevant?

Really though, are you just pulling **** out of your ass and trying to serve it to us for dinner?

I said such as mayhem. I am not sure exactly what law he violated. Please do not project your hatred and biases about conservatives on me. You are making several wrong assumptions. Just because I defend or criticize one thing, it doesn't mean I am a rightwing gun-toting nut job. I don't think you all are antifa. In this specific instance, all I did was criticize amnesty international for issuing a travel advisory on the USA. Because of that, I have to defend some militarized clown in a grocery store?

Sorry, please scroll down to 1973=74 Zebra murders. I bought my first and only gun then. Was that racist?

You are right Bearacus...but why not an impact on you? Forget that the time seems so long ago to you. 71 statewide murders essentially covered up for political correctness. Disgusting.

"This is Missouri," Andreychenko reportedly said of the incident to investigators. "I understand if we were somewhere else like New York or California, people would freak out."

I went to Winterland to a concert during the peak of the Zebra murders. Many of the murders were in the Fillmore District where Winterland was located. My buddy and I were wasted and paranoid. We saw a Black Eldorado Caddy (which some Zebra killers were seen driving) after the concert and dove behind some park cars for cover. False alarm. I think it was a Dave Mason concert and War was the warm up band. The book Season of the Witch has a good discussion of the Zebra Killers.
