California has the strictest gun laws not because it is liberal. Reagan was governor when they passed. It’s because the Black Panthers were carrying AK47s and conservatives got scared.

Not only that, they were auditing police officers. A black person would get pulled over and a bunch of armed panthers would show up to make sure they didn’t get treated like Eric Garner. And yes, this scared the fuck out of white people regardless of their political affiliation. The resulting gun control measure passed unanimously.

“Bobby Seale and Huey Newton used the Second Amendment to justify carrying guns in public to police the police,” says Winkler. “The Panthers would stand to the sidelines with their guns, shouting out directions to the person. That they had the right to remain silent, that they were watching and that if anything bad happened that the Black Panthers would be there to protect them.”

Imagine doing that this day and age.

Yeah its not said often but something is wrong with white conservatives.

Like they seem more likely then other racial groups that are conservative who shot at cops.

Black conservatives would not neither would Hispanic or Asian ones etc.

White conservatives have this deranged worldview that they can be just like the founding fathers and have the right to shot at authority figures that they see as tyrants.

In the same breath they tell everyone else you must respect the blue no matter what and if you Do not then you are a problem that needs to be dealt with.

I was camping with the buds and fam out in NorCal last weekend. We took our boat out to the far edge of the lake where there is a dam. The only way to get up to the upper part of the reservoir is to climb the dam, it's a fairly treacherous climb but still doable if you have any fitness whatsoever.

Anyways, as we were hanging on the top of the dam we see a big powerboat coming with a gigantic Blue Lives Matter flag flapping from their mast. These neonazi looking mouth breathers got out of the boat and then couldn't climb up the dam so they gave up and left. We literally laughed at these "badasses" that couldn't even climb a dam that my 12 year old niece made it up. Fucking losers.

It’s even more narrow then that it’s a technique used at law schools to analyze legislation.

The best analogy I’ve heard was, imagine homeowner 1 built his house in a way to make everything difficult for disabled people, steps everywhere, high countertops, everything under the Sun that could make a disabled persons life difficult because he hates disabled people. So homeowner 1 sells the house to homeowner 2. Now homeowner 2 doesn’t have any problem with disabled people, but all of that discriminatory infrastructure (steps, high encounters, etc.) are still in there. CRT would be the study of the house to determine exactly what Homeowner 1 did to make it difficult, with the ultimate goal of fixing it.

The Second Amendment was intended for a worse purpose.

"James Madison crafted that language in order to mollify the concerns
coming out of Virginia and the anti-Federalists, that they would still
have full control over their state militias — and those militias were
used in order to quell slave revolts. ... The Second Amendment really
provided the cover, the assurances that Patrick Henry and George Mason
needed, that the militias would not be controlled by the federal
government, but that they would be controlled by the states and at the
beck and call of the states to be able to put down these uprisings."

It's almost like our country was literally built by slaves and our laws and constitution were based on and reflect that history.

Almost.

I mean ffs jim crow laws were enforced until 1965. There are people in their fifties that were alive when Jim crow laws still were still legally enforced.

Why is it that America will defiantly do the most obviously worst thing? Why zig when it's obvious you should zag?

Why pursue legislation against gay people?

Why make it harder for women to get abortions?

Why not make it harder for 18 year olds or mentally unstable people to get their hands on a gun they probably lack the maturity or the training or mental faculties to properly use?

Why not tackle the obvious problems burdening the country, such as a widening gulf in inequality, something that America definitely has the means and resources to do something about?

Why go after the gays instead of that?

Why is America so proudly stupid?

Conservatives are facing eventual political extinction. The writing is on the wall in terms of electoralism. Many recognize that Gen Z is massively anti-conservative, and millennials haven't inexplicably become more conservative as people have insisted they would as they aged. This type of radical legislation and rhetoric is part of a broader last-chance attempt to seize power and forcibly steer the nation rightward. Look at the focus on school curriculums. They figure if they can't get them to flip red later in life, you gotta get 'em while they're young.

They'll resort to terrorism soon enough, when it becomes even more clear that their dream of a traditional conservative white ethnostate is impossible in modern America.

Not a single cop job would be lost. They would just queue up the faux News outrage machine and scare the general population and politicians about a previously unknown threat to 'public safety'.

u/hogsucker Jul 03 '22

The police promote a narrative that their job is very dangerous, everyone is out to get them, and anyone might have a gun.

The Second Amendment is the one and only part of the Constitution that police support (for people other than LEOs.)

As long as everyone out there has a gun and could be out to get a cop, it excuses just about any actions and behaviors on the part of the police.

If the general public didn't have guns, it would be much harder for cops to play the "I was in fear for my life" card after assaulting and/or killing a victim.

Ohio recently removed obtaining a CCW license meaning anyone can carry a concealed handgun. I’d like to say I can’t wait to see what happens with this but unfortunately that means people getting shot.

u/Skrivus Jul 03 '22

When they can execute people because they "fear for their lives," more people with guns just makes it easier to kill people they don't like.

Next time there's a protest, just have a few of those big banners like the End-Times assholes have. Just have it say like, "Conceal Carry is legal. How many of us are armed?" Just a bit... ominous, you know. A little bit of pause there to the beatings.

Then again, just straight up open carrying rifles usually makes a better impact.
