    When my two young, black grandsons become of age is purchase them both handguns, along with the conceal carry permits necessary by the State of Indiana so that whenever they are approached by any white person in a "threatening" manner, they have the right to defend themselves.

    Is that what it has come to in this country?  I feel as though I'm back in the 20's or 30's...

    •  don't think that any SYG law will protect them. (2+ / 0-)

      It's pretty clear that SYG is a defense for a white killing a black, but not a defense when the shooter is black and the victim is white.
      I don't think arming your grandsons is a good idea at all. They're much more likely to end up injured or killed if they have guns.

      While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
