But after perusing The Rightwing sites as of late... The last minute & a half holds some very interesting commentary.

I confess, I both enjoy the privileges of living in gun state and use it as a weapon to mess with people.  In suburban Texas neighborhoods, it is assumed that every house is an armed camp so break-ins are not that frequent if they know somebody is home.  On the other hand, I love discussing with the open carry folks the fact that the law applies to black and Hispanic Americans too, as a lot of laws are supported here assuming that they are "For Whites Only". 

Questions like, "So when you get out of church and go to a restaurant, and you walk in and there's a group of openly armed black or Hispanics, you're good with that?

That's great.  I grew up in a hunting family, at least for awhile before my father wounded a caribou (growing up in Canada) and not being able to track it down.  He gave up hunting then.  Of course, the second amendment is not about hunting, but hunting is used sillywise by the media and Dems to frame the conversation in one iteration. (I lived later on in parts of the US where hunting was part and partial to subsistence living, everyone did it as food was an issue for many.)

If you want to remember one community defending itself under the wings of the 2nd, think back to the L.A. Riots in... 92? When Korea Town was attacked by rioters, and shop owners defended their property as the police had abandoned the area.  The Korean shop owners were largely successful in repelling the rioters.  The police are not always there, especially if you are not upper middle class or higher on the social scale...

The video makes mention of the Black Panthers occupying the Capitol in Sacramento.  That was so ballsy, and as mentioned the NRA & Reagan started the gun banning wagon.  Reminds me of the Jim Crow Laws that prohibited Blacks from owning rifles in the south.

I have heard of these folks, just sent your link to my favourite couple here in town who have voiced concerns about their well-being whilst out camping, etc.

Thanks!

To be fair, a large part of the gray area between the two political parties is because they have moved closer together in nearly every aspect of their platforms, reducing their "differences" to the argument over who gets to be the face of Big Brother and if we are at war with Oceana or Eurasia. They use different advertising, but the product is the same.
