  •  AyDeeTheGreat, I didnt... (4+ / 0-)

    ... vote in the poll.  How can I promote young black men carrying firearms, when some doing so is more likely to get any of them killed?  And yet having a gun might be the best chance of staying alive when faced with this cancer in our society?  

    But know this, we need your voice here.  Welcome, and please keep writing.

      I appreciate your abstaining from the poll. It's really a Catch-22 [almost literally]. I just wonder how much difference it makes that the kind of violence insinuated by the presence of both Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis led their killers to believe they were armed anyhow, so they may not have fared any better if they were armed, but they would have had a chance at life, even if it would mean life in prison [and what kind of life is that?].

      Thank you for the welcome.
