You can't compare the two.

That Black Panther standing outside a voting place with a bat WAS doing it to be threatening, the BP's do threaten to kill all the whites.

So try another analogy if you can find one.

These people were peacefully assembled.....period.

Actually you have it all backward.

The anti gun crowd is pro murder because they are trying to disarm innocent people who just want to defend themselves against the criminals.

The criminals which will always find ways to get guns no matter the laws. THEY will use those guns to MURDER.

What we are is pro self defense.

But nice little trick you used there......equating "anti gun" with such an inflammatory phrase as "pro murder".

The fact is a whole bunch of people walked into a government building with weapons!!!!!!

Were they checked at the door to see if they were loaded?

If it wasnt an implied threat why the need to have the guns there in the 1st place?
Surely a placard would have been just as effective if the purpose was to protest or show solidarity

If you don't excercise your rights, they gradually erode.

Our military is constantly flying right on the edge of the internationally established borders of several countries to maintain those borders.

Same thing here.

See, you're making the same mistake... who the hell is "anti gun"? Gun regulation does NOT equal anti gun.

So again, as long as you call me a blatant lie (eg: anti gun), I shall call you "pro murder" ... it's the same logic.

Pull yourself together and we can debate the actual issue like grown ups.

And let me leave you with this quote about criminals and guns:

“This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety ... While we recognize that assault-weapon legislation will not stop all assault-weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals.”

Care to guess who said that ?

(P.S. ... why is it people think that criminals will still use guns if outlawed but banning abortions will stop those? lol)

It irks me that the gun-grabbers never address the real reason we have arms. They seem to believe that sin and corruption have been conquered, that leaders do not lust for more power, and that tyranny is an outdated concept. Words of wisdom from those who knew better:

“When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:”
- Luke 11:21

"The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
--Thomas Jefferson

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one."
- Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist in 1764.

"The constitutions of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property and freedom of the press."
- Thomas Jefferson

"Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the Peoples' Liberty's Teeth."
- George Washington

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force: Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”
- Patrick Henry

"Must men alone be debarred the common privilege of opposing force with force, which nature allows so freely to all other creatures for their preservation from injury? I answer: self defence is a part of the law of nature, nor can it be denied the community, even against the king himself..."
- John Locke, Two Treatises of Government, 1689

"Self defence is justly called the primary law of nature, so it is not, either can it be in fact, taken away by the laws of society."
- Sir William Blackstone, Commentaries on the Laws

"The militia is the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpation of power by rulers. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally ... enable the people to resist and triumph over them."
--Joseph Story, Supreme Court Justice

I don't care who said it if I don't agree with it.....Reagan?

We don't believe abortions will stop (another ridiculous analogy), we want it called what it is, murder, a crime. And for them not to be paid for by taxpayer money.

Everyone is getting all paranoid about ASSAULT weapons. Take a course on guns and relax.

if you can't understand how pro gun regulation is being anti gun then you misconceive cause and effect, momentum, and human greed. i am not pro murder, i am pro justifiable homicide(but not all gun owners are), criminals should know better and the police/government should not be behind criminals. if you say that this isn't the 1800's then why is the president acting like Mary Antoinette? we should just eat cake? brits act like cattle nowdays when back in the day they would cut heads off their dictators. why can't there be a renaissance of technology and information instead of a revolution caused by a government that wants to use us for labor and eventually murder us when we are too weak to push that cart? i don't see why people around the world aren't more angry about gun laws. i would rather rule my house in america than serve the foriegn government that has me living in a wire cage. first regulation then prohibition.

In fact the poor guy doesn't even have a clue that the Mujahideen fought against Russian Communist invasion of their country and the USA helped them fight. Mujahideen were freedom fighters. Current POTUS and his fellow travelers are on the wrong side of things though. They are helping the Muslim Brotherhood take over country after country after they had been ousted for years.

Just a observation. Don't take my observation as a stance on gun control..just on "stereotypical groups with guns".

Lotta baseball caps in that crowd.

At least you're honest in your stereotyping, bigotry, race-baiting.

*shakes head*

Explain how I did any of that.
I simply pointed out observations of the photos provided. they are 100% Caucasian, no? Do you see many suits? Do you see a disproportunate amount of caps on the men than your standard sampling?
Again...stating what a picture is showing is not bigotry or race baiting. As far as stereotyping..I am pointing out how they themselves are acting the stereotype. what...I am supposed to be politically correct against vision?
I asked a question, pointed something out, and you, instead of answering it back with any honesty, decided you didn't like the answer you yourself would instead just attacked the line of questioning.

I ask again..if it was all black people dressing their stereotype..what would the narration of this thread be?

Yah because the "Suits" are hanging out in Obama's corner in Wall Street right over there with Georgy Schwartz.

Back on topic.....yesterday in my area, Albany NY:

Finally a representative that is representing the people who voted for him!

ALBANY – Thousands of gun-rights advocates descended upon the state Capitol Saturday to make sure their message was clear: Not all New Yorker's support state legislation passed last week that aggressively tightens restrictions on assault-style weapons and ammunition. Passing such restrictions, they argued, is just plain un-American.

"I'll tell you what," said Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, R-Melrose, to a riled crowd, "They confiscate our guns, they confiscate our freedom." McLaughlin went so far as to call the law, dubbed the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or SAFE, the result of "political violence."

He spoke with congeniality and force; the crowd fired off cheers that ricocheted blocks away. Rally organizer J.J. Johnson-Smith flashed a thumbs up and uttered a "hallelujah."

McLaughlin continued: "For people with courage and honor, Albany is a lonely place. But I don't work for this governor, I work for you."

Pics might be from Jan rally, article was written today.

Most of you are too passionate about this to see the black and white of it.

-No one ever said you cannot arm yourself in your house. Lot's of you keep saying this. Let me repeat
actually what's the point? I don't care how much yall hate Biden but whatever. He's correct, a 12 guage is and should be sufficient to protect your home.

The anti gun crowd is pro murder

If you believe this then I feel sorry for ya! (in a way) Lighten up a bit!

We still have a right to defend ourselves outside.

A gun in the house doesn't help me away from home does it?

Im more certain than ever that there would be a correlation between gun ownership and low IQ/ low education level


My Dad owned pistols and rifles, had his metallurgical engineering degree from Purdue University, had eidetic memory and could memorize entire pages of mathematical formulas, and had dozens of his own patented alloys. He had a library full of books, including many scientific books, and one day at lunch started explaining to me the difference between nuclear fusion and fission. I have one of his old books, on atomic weapons dated 1950 with the Atomic Energy Commission stamp on the inside, as he was the civil defense leader for our community. He also was a WWII veteran with the 82nd airborne and carried an officer to safety as well as was among the first to arrive at the Neuengamme camps.
I am willing to bet my Dad's IQ against pro gun control people any day.
