Disarmament

A lot of people on the left are calling for the US to enact strict gun control laws in the aftermath of the terrible shooting at a Florida school. They should ponder some of these photographs.

The history of the US suggests that gun control would be a bad idea for the country's most marginalised groups.

Historically, African Americans have armed themselves for protection against lynchings, racist cops, and pogroms. America's first gun control laws were enacted in the nineteenth century to try to stop freed slaves from acquiring arms. For decades blacks in the south struggled for the right to bear guns, knowing that a rifle was the best defence against the ropes of lynch mobs and the burning crosses of the KKK. The Black Panthers are famous for patrolling American cities with guns, but even the pacifist Martin Luther King kept a huge arsenal of weapons for self-defence.

Not only the civil rights but the trade union movement was built with guns. Early America labor leaders carried guns wherever they went, and coal miners and railway workers fought pitched battles with police and soldiers, as well as armed strikebreakers hired by bosses.
Today African Americans have begun to form armed self-defence squads to defend their neighbourhoods from both out of control cops and criminals. In Dallas, for example, the Huey P Newton Gun Club, named after a famous Black Panther leader, patrols inner city streets. If a ban on assault rifles were enacted, groups like this could be criminalised, just as armed black civil rights groups were once criminalised in the southern states.

American cops will always be heavily armed; so will rednecks and criminals. Gun laws will disarm only vulnerable groups like African Americans. Is it really safe, in Trump's America, for the left to give the state, criminals, and white racists a monopoly on arms? The American left needs to arm, not disarm itself. The Huey P Newton Gun Club should be made into a model, not a target for the state.

This is nonsense Scott all those days are well past. The world is fucked for sure now. But it would help if gun control was as it is in NZ. In fact it should be stricter than it is with very strong vigilance. Only the military and police in special circumstances should be allowed guns, and some hunters licensed by and working for the Government. There is no need in the US now for the kind of defense. It is a madness.

The main victims of gun killing in the US are poor or unemployed blacks shooting each other. And a lot of them are crims...that is the ones who are shot. England and other countries have lower deaths by shooting.

There are also the white psychos and ISIS madmen with trucks but that is for the FBI and the police to deal with and of course in the long run, as to these increasing teenage killings as well as very strict gun control the issue of mental health etc needs to be looked at.

Gun control, very strict, should be the first step.

I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan of $185,000.00 USD to clear my bank draft and start up a new business.

Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of (progresiveloan@yahoo.com).. So if really you are genuinely in need of a loan either to expand or start up your own business or in any form of financial difficulty, i advise you give Mr Josef Lewis of Progressive loan the opportunity of financial upliftment in your life Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565 and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan. thanks

I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address (progresiveloan@yahoo.com) and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE,PROSPER LOAN FIRM IS THE ONLY WAY OUT FROM ANY FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES { prosperloanfirm@yahoo.com }

Greetings great mind, It will be my greatest pleasure saving Individuals and companies from extortion, I know not everyone will want to take it upon their self to reveal the bitter truth about online Lending because of insecurity, Time of doing it and all that. I Ryan F. Tyler, an outstanding businessman who reside at Oakland, California has taken it upon himself to share this article to whom it may concern so they can learn and educate their self from it . It's bad to the extend where you see testimonies online about getting a loan and it turn out to be fake. For real i have fallen for that tricks countless time to the extend i lost almost 65,000usd in total all in the name of getting a loan to invest in a very lucrative business. After so many failed attempt of securing a loan, I and my Manager went online to do a thorough search and found this company PROSPER LOAN FIRM ( (816) 366-8769 ) but before giving it a try we also went ahead to make sure they are registered under BBB, check their reviews and also go to their headquarter to confirm their existence and capability.We were so careful because we didn't wanted to lose any dime again and to our greatest expectation they deliver according to their review and grant us our desire loan amount of 510,000Usd. A word to everyone out there when it comes to Online Lenders contact only PROSPER LOAN FIRM via email: { prosperloanfirm@yahoo.com } or drop a message to them via text at (816) 366-8769 and consider all your financial problems tackled and solved.#SHARE, You can rescue someone from been victimized today, Thanks.
