    Maybe. But I watched old timers stick with the Dems as "the party of the working man" long after they started going for the Looney Tune Leftist rhetoric. Some people would vote for the person with the "D" after their name even if they had horns and a pitchfork.

    IDK. She's saying the President is basically a racist. I dont agree. I hope she and other black gun owners make a big distinction between white supremacists (a tiny tiny minority) and the rest of us white folk. But if they're buying because they are thinking of general self defense and enjoying their right to a gun...more power to them.

    Once the discussion becomes "race" it is because you are dealing with "racists." The fact that she is black is completely irrelevant, she felt vulnerable and armed herself. Welcome to the club, we've all been there at one time or another. When people band together around race, they scare the crap out of other people and make them feel vulnerable.

    KKK, BP, JDL, BI, AN, etc. it's all mostly the same stupid. It's sad that she honestly believes Trump is promoting this kind of hatred, but it's her right to believe stupid shit and arm herself accordingly.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    They really should worry about defending themselves from other black people. The stats don't lie.. The majority of crimes committed against blacks are committed by blacks.

    With one comes the other. They may believe the premise of "we armed ourselves against the white supremacist" in the beginning, but will find crime is race blind for the most part. Taking back control of their communities would be step 1 in realizing the problems aren't coming from the ultra small minority of racists.

    Step 2, as Will pointed out, will be the light bulb moment when they start hearing politicians telling them "you don't need to be armed to protect yourself. Guns are bad. Etc, etc, etc." When the black community starts to figure out those politicians are trying to remove the very item they originally purchased to protect themselves from the perceived threats, they will start to see it in a different light.

    Maybe the lesson will stick this time.

    Of course I am continually hoping my fellow Caucasians will either get smarter (or, more likely, honest) instead of spouting crap like 3D chess, lesser of 2 evils, and similar tripe.

    Well one big feather in the hat of the black gun owners is that they are much less likely to do the clone build LARP thing so there's that.

    True, but im sure they will come up with enough facepalm worthy AR configurations all on their own.

    Preach on - we treat a lot of the 1950-60’s Civil Rights Movement as non-violent, but it was more nuanced than that - Malcolm X, deacons for Justice, Black Panthers. I recall a story of a visit to MLK’s house where King warned a guy about to sit on a sofa to mind the loaded pistol concealed there. The movement was non-violent in a passivity sense, but if SOBs were willing to blow up a bunch of little girls in a church, it was time to shoot back (at Condi Rice’s church IIRC).

    Where the community stood up against racist thugs, there was a very clear correlation with military service. The young men coming back from the Second World War led the organization, funding and strategy that led directly to the Civil Rights Act. Medgar Evers fought at Normandy before being Assassinated in his own driveway. James Meredith was a multiple enlistment Airman.

    I am just a few miles from Malcolm X’s birthplace. He was a convicted felon but still posed with an M-1 carbine to send a very clear message.

    Remember McDonald v. Chicago?

    McDonald was black.
