Some good people in rural Illinois have a unique way of sticking up for the 2nd Amendment:

The “crooks carry guns” sign they are putting up at the beginning of the video looks funny when taken out of context of the rest of the signs in the series.

So let me get this straight… Lady at 1:45 lost a daughter in a shooting at a university, and she is “offended” at the “guns save lives” message of the signs.  WTF? and I quote “I don’t think anybody having a gun in that lecture hall would have reduced the number of casualties”.  I’d like to ask her “So even if there was a police officer in the lecture hall you don’t think he could have maybe saved your daughters life?”  My guess is the answer would have been an emphatic “Oh well now you’re talking police… not just a regular person.”

At 2:39 we here from the website president John Boch – “Honestly, I don’t know how many guns I have.  Seriously, I don’t even know how many guns I have that I’ve never shot.”   He probably makes the mistake of dropping that witty line on all the ladies… and that’s why John Boch is married to firearms.

Just out having a troll stroll exercising rights at the same time:

hahah he suggests to the cop he should park elsewhere as not to impede traffic.  Good start guy..

How do automatic firearms normally look?  In my experience they look identical to semi autos unless you know what to look for.  *blah blah blah erring on the side of caution* because so many criminals open carry mid day minding their own business on a busy street right? *eye roll*  We discussed this before on the blog, but what phone operators at police stations need to start doing is asking a few simple questions like “So this person you saw open carrying… was he acting in a threatening manner?” etc.. and then based on the answers proceed to educate the caller that open carry of a firearm is in fact legal in the state.  It would really save a lot of time for everyone involved, and free the police up to deal with situations that are of actual importance.

I love how he was finished with the police at around 3.5 minutes, yet continued to be a douchebag and argue with them about the semi-automatic / automatic, and the NFA.

I’ll say it time and time again, open carry if you want… it’s your right (in some states) and you should do whatever you want, but don’t be surprised when you get harassed over and over because some “concerned citizen” sees you carrying around a “High powered fully automatic assault rifle with a shoulder thing that goes up”.

Jones College Prep — a Chicago Public Schools “selective enrollment” school — recently held “Social Justice Week” in March, a collection of events geared towards turning students into activists.

A few things on my mind while watching the video:

  • I love how the kid near the beginning of the video (0:30) speaks his mind
  • 1:40 – Her paraphrasing of what she thinks the NRA said made me laugh “So what you have so many children dying on your streets, that’s ya’ll problem.  We just makin’ money.”
  • Where are people buying these guns with a mind of their own, that kill people?  All mine just sit here and do nothing.
  • Why are these kids at school at 4:35?
  • 4:48 – ah the old “number of black men in college compared to the number of black men in jail” statistic.  I suppose I should have some white guilt right about now? *eye roll*

Thoughts?
