Sometimes They Just Don't Get It...

There's an editorial up on Black Star News (I know, I've never heard of it either) bemoaning the fact that when it comes to the 2A, any response of more than two people must be coordinated by the gun lobby. We saw the same thing a couple of weeks ago with the tea parties. Because the left in this country can't get a crowd without offering to pay for everything from smokes to booze, they think everyone does. I've got a news flash for you. Just like the tea parties, word of mouth, or in this case keystrokes, travels fast. The offending editorial can be found here

Now our intrepid editorial writer has some issues with some of the comments left on his site. His biggest is none of his anti-gun buddies came to his rescue. Not a one. See, they know what happens when you tangle with "gun nuts". You get your keister kicked. With facts and figures. Something our writer found out the hard way when he complained about commenters referring to "research" and "studies. Which by the way are from the Centers for Disease Control and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, neither of which are known for their staunch support for the 2A.

He also seems to have a problem with a black commentor, one Peter, who pointed attempted to point out the racist origins of gun control in this country. After the civil war, the southern states attempted to keep some form of slavery in place. By requiring permits to purchase guns, the local constabulary was able to prevent blacks from arming themselves for personal defense, thus allowing racist groups like the KKK to continue to terrorize black communities for decades. The 14th Amendment was supposed to stop this, but until DC v Heller, and again in Nordyke v. King (9th Circuit) the 2A hadn't had a good day in court since US v. Miller.
