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

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.
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.
So...now 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 give...so 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?
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."

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.

Yah because the "Suits" are hanging out in Obama's corner in Wall Street right over there with Georgy Schwartz.
Im more certain than ever that there would be a correlation between gun ownership and low IQ/ low education level
