hmmmm, don't know much about that history do ya ?

first, Hoover was long dead by 1969.
second, the Panthers were infiltrated and partially dismantled for their Communist, activist, Nation of Islam supported actions and affiliations, not guns


the propaganda scheme worked then and apparently, it's still working on some of you, today


for the record, there have been 3 Fed firearm laws ...
National Firearms Act (1934)
Gun Control Act (1968)
Brady Bill (1993)

please identify, in any of them, ownership restrictions directed at any specific 'race' of ppl.

Damn Reagan again, that guy has so much blood on his hands. Not to mention that he approved of chemically poisoning illegal drug producing plants to intentionally harm the users. As long as irresponsible dangerous people are carrying around firearms and bombs and machetes, I will most certainly feel compelled to equip myself for the preservation of my own life. There is no social or governmental "law" that will strip me of the natural right I assert.

What about peoples rights and "liberty" to walk around the streets or a mall without fear Cause any idiot who wants one has a gun?


Since the dawn of man safety has never been a right nor has it even been possible.

All safety is an illusion. Anything can happen to anyone at anytime anywhere.


Maybe if you were responsible enough as a peoples to use military grade weapons you wouldn't be "under fire".
But you are not responsible enough. That is certainly the truth.

A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require
-Universal background checks -

Excellent, then if you're a terrorist or have a criminal record, you can't have a gun. -Only a terrorist or a criminal would have a problem with that. Are you a terrorist or a criminal?

-Track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database

We had this in Canada, I didn`t mind it. It meant (for me) That if any punk stole my weapons there was a serial number. If the stolen weapon was found, I would get the weapon back.

-Strengthen mental health checks

That`s a no brainer, unless you have mental problems and want a gun. lol.

- Stiffer penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors.
Thumbs up. We don`t want ass holes around schools. That includes disgruntled tea partyers, thank you


Basically you have to have some serious issues if you disagree with three of the four. The National database is kinda a waste of money, (imo) the other points, as I said, are no-brainers.

Nope, you clearly don't know that history.

Hoover died in 1972. He remained director of the FBI until his death. That is a quote from him about the Panthers, not made up.

Also, at no point did I say that they targeted the Black Panthers solely because of their guns, however they were very successful in removing them from the black community and they didn't need a LAW for that. Just like they didn't need a law to racially profile.

The point you missed is that guns are no longer an established part of the black community, and this concocted war against the panthers signaled that end.

African-Americans are now primarily gun control supporters, instead of gun rights supporters. Whereas, this would have been much different 40 years ago.

What should shock you is that there is no law and yet it still took place.

oooops, wrong Hoover ... sorry, i said was old

my mind goes to Herb, not JEdgar


oh and btw, he (HH) was long dead by 1969.

www.biography.com...
He was working on another book when he died at age 90 in New York City in 1964.

JE Hoover isn't a subject i care to remember or discuss.

i never said you did, but you did respond to another's comment.
so, now you're saying that you didn't say this ?

I am so glad you brought this up. They have disarmed black people a long time ago
in response to this ...

The Black Panthers demanded their right to own a gun

if i misunderstood your statement, please clarify.
the Panthers were not disarmed until they were arrested.

laws don't extend rights, they restrict them.
if you think laws are/were necessary to assert their rights, that is where you are wrong.

don't know which part of the 'black community' to which you refer but they are quite plentiful in mine and have been for all of the nearly 3 decades i've been here in the deep south


again, not sure where your regional info originates, but it is not a 'national' condition like you're trying to imply. also, the right of self-defense is not an issue of race and shame on you for trying to make it one


why should that shock me ??
fewer laws is always better.

ETA -- "concocted war against the panthers" ?? -- did i read that right?
who is fooling who here ?
the BP were Not casual observers or peaceful objectors and i'll leave it at that.

We already have National background checks by a division of the FBI.

If people do not like this, contact your Congressional representative to change it. I do not think such bill will become law. Just my 2 cents.

more restrictions, of any kind, placed upon law-abiding citizens is NOT a reasonable answer to this current dilemma.

we already know it doesn't work in your country, what makes you think it would work here ?

besides, quite a bit of our armament is made in your country ... do you really want to deplete your manufacturing base in this current economy ?

You obviously didn't read my post, you just scanned then decided to make a comment. It says J. Edgar in my earlier post btw. I think you jumped on when I said "equal protection", that is what got you wound up.

What I meant by that, is that at times we may think something is okay, because it doesn't affect us or it affects a group we disagree with, but it the long run it hurts everyone.

I responded to the comment because he showed the video of the man advocating the need for guns as a "proper liberation tool" and he was a black panther. I didn't make it a race issue, I am merely adding my two cents in response to the video.

Most black people, such as myself, live in or around cities and not in the deep south. The few hundred that live near you are not the few hundred thousand that live near me. That is why I made such a broad statement, which of course, is not wholly inclusive of every single individual.

Living in one of the most densely populated areas in the U.S. I can say that this idea that guns are bad is the norm here. This idea is particularly prevalent in the black community, with help from the msm. I won't repeat myself again, please refer to my above posts. I commented because, the man in the video today would probably be boo'ed instead of applauded.

Again, you are completely missing the point about it being shocking. An idea is a powerful thing. If you can condition a generation to believe 1. guns a bad 2. guns are undesirable 3. guns are dangerous 4. only criminals use guns. 5. guns will land you in jail, then you need not pass any laws.

Step away from the race issue and look at the broader picture. Please and thank you.

really ? care to be specific or is generalization the best you can offer ?

no, you didn't ... but a piece of your wiki cut & paste did.
however, i missed it on the first read because the last sentence had me laughing tooooo hard


Members were encouraged to carry guns and to defend themselves against violence
but you're right, they were 'disarmed'


and, black crime was rampant in the 50s & 60s from coast to coast and long before the haze of the 70s.

"equal protection" ?? when did you mention that ?
ohhhh, i see it ... nvm ... nope, didn't stir me one bit, i agree.
although, the segway to specific religious groups didn't make any sense.

so, are we having a discussion or are you gonna continue attempting to pseudo-analyze me from your keyboard ? (rather poorly i might add)

if you read any of my posts, you would know i cannot view video and you offered no narrative.
sorry, but i can't discuss what i can't view or read.

when you made the comment to me (not the video poster) about the majority of AA being ANTI supporters is when you made it a race issue and i still find it an offensive statement, let alone false.

i got news for you ... there is no such thing as a Northern majority of black folk
... where in the world did you get that idea anyway ?

i haven't reviewed the most recent census details but i'm pretty sure the South still has a larger black population than the North (always has)

could your paintbrush get any bigger

fyi, my state is about to contain the 3rd highest population in the country ... the few hundred thousand you see, can't compare to the millions here

*6 million of whom are gun owners btw.

hmmmm, most densely populated you say ... would that be CA or TX ?
www.flgov.com...

a recent U.S. Census Survey reported that Florida experienced an influx of people moving into the state, highlighted by the New York-to-Florida migration, which led the nation
- snip -
we are at a 41-year low in our crime rate

i think your perceptions are slightly askew to say the least.

ahhh, after reading your last paragraph, i see says the blind woman ... you're a New Yorker ... why o'why is that not surprising
(well, you can thank your Communist/Socialist/Marxist leaders ... cause they're the ones who established your 'environment' and apparently those who are there are ok with it or they would change it)

since we've pegged NY as the "inspiration" for your commentary, how 'bout you step back and learn a few things, first ?

so, just for fun ... i checked the census numbers for FL and guess what ?
source
in 2010, 18 addl births/migrations would've brought the AA pop. total to 3 million, exactly.
so, for giggles and ease, let's use that round number, ok ?

18+ million was the total population.
4 million are under age 18 and cannot be legal gun owners.
so, that leaves us with roughly 14 million, some of whom cannot legally own firearms either, but, we won't deduct them for this exercise.

now, of that 14 million, 6 million are reported to be legal gun owners.
how many of those remaining 8 million do you really think are members of the ANTI crowd ?

and, let's not forget that the rate of CCW licenses being issued has tripled since 2001.

with 5x as many gun owners as ccw holders currently, that leads me to think that a majority of the remaining 8 million are, more than likely, 'not so legal' gun owners.
{yes, i know a few of them}

do you realize that if 1/2 of the AA population is legally armed, that's still OVER 1.5 million ppl ??

now, the reason i'm adding this info is not to rub your nose in it, but, to encourage you to expand your horizon.

in NY, guns are highly restricted, yet, gun violence is off the charts (well, not quite but close) ... here, we have 6 million gun owners floating around and the LOWEST crime rate in 41 years ... which is probably longer than you've been alive.

please, think on that and then get back to me.

So, law abiding citizens who carry are all idiots that you fear?
But you don't fear gang-bangers and other criminals?
So the law abiding citizens who carry and have stopped evil people trying to murder are idiots?

But you, who thinks criminals obey laws and wont have guns if they get banned, are not an idiot?




I like you, you're funny.

I'm sorry, you don't know anything about America gun laws.
I have had a Federal, State and local background check done as part of getting my pistol permit.
And every time I buy a gun, they check again.

Oh and


- Stiffer penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors. Thumbs up. We don`t want ass holes around schools.
What do yo mean giving them to minors? A stiffer penalty would be life, or death. And schools are gun free zones already, lot of good that did right? A gun free zone is a criminal safe haven, in fact if they passed a pointless "no more then 10rds law" and a criminal obeyed it, what good would it do? He would have time to use only one mag and reload it by hand, NO ONE WOULD BE ABLE TO STOP HIM BECAUSE IT'S A GUN FREE ZONE.

Really, until you "refresh" your memory on US gun laws, rights and the process of getting guns, I can't help you. (not that you care about facts and rights)

My bad, I didnt realise there were checks and balances in place to stop guns getting into the hands of nut jobs, I guess all these stories about shootings must be false

There is no need for this, as LE has NCIC for stolen firearms.
There is no need, nor is it legal to track legal firearms owned by US citizens.

While very fluffy and good feeling, this too is illegal and is basically part of the background check.

Yep, because bigger signs stating it is a gun free school zone will deter people.
What does minors with firearms have anything to do with this.
Along with the comment about Tea Party Members?
Other then you just getting your Progressive dig on those people?

Sounds like you are happy with your lack of rights to own and bear firearms in Canada. Please, keep your crap politics and stay there.

Funny as there is more gun related deaths in other countries every day, yet the MSM seems to concentrate on what they don't like and pitch it the way they want. SO, the spot light may be on, yet there are higher deaths happening else where. May I suggest you get your info from other sources, then just CNN?

Wait a minute tell us exactly how it did not work. Unlike America...Canadians do not feel the need to be armed to walk the streets of out country...we do not live in constant fear of being killed by criminals.

Our country is not run by criminals..like they do in America. Think they don't?..then why give them the power of fear over your people?

Living in fear is not a freedom...if you think it is..then you are brainwashed twit.
