    Guaranfu(kingteed, if the people of Ferguson started patrolling their neighborhoods with guns instead of unarmed, the power structure would have come up with some reason to confiscate them.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      No, they'd respond with deadly force.

      Don't just fight the powers that be, become the powers that be.

        caught a house in Oakland on fire. The police didn't seem to like the Black Panthers patrolling their neighborhoods with long guns, and made sure they knew it. Raygun had just signed the Mulford Act, but for some reason the NRA didn't raise a stink about 2nd amendment rights. Yep, open carry is OK; if you're white you're alright, if you're black, you must be on crack.

        And what's with all these cops pointed weapons at civilians? My Daddy taught me that you only point a gun at someone if you're going to shoot them. Otherwise you're very careful about where the muzzle is pointed. Doesn't anyone learn good gun protocol these days?
