Guns are a Natural Right which belongs only to White People. The only Gun Control which will be instituted in this Country will be for persons of color and muslims.
The latest Senational Shooting (Note: I did not watch any video I will not watch any associated video) was perpetrated by a Black Man, as he murdered two former white colleagues On Air, while wounding another woman. The Killer also separately recorded the killings and posted them to Social Media before taking his own life. Immediately the Right-Wing Internet Wurlitzer went into Outrage Mode over the Race Murder as Breitbart called it. Gun Maniacs immediately took to their platforms to call for the arming of Reporters.
Of course, Gun Nuts are always primed for the next shooting, so that they can get ahead of the calls for Gun Control and shut down debate. But, they needn't bother.
The Gun Control Debate is finished in this country. The observation that Gun Control effectively ended after We, as a People decided killing 20 Children at Sandy Hook in Connecticut was acceptable is absolutely correct. But, there is the possibility rabid reactionary right-wingers might be able to disarm Minorities.
As such Conservatives have taken it upon themselves to restrict access to Muslims. Mainly these incidents (A, B, C, D) appear to be political theater. But, they serve as a reminder of what Take Back America and Make America Great Again actually mean.
It's a demand by White People to be placed into Positions of Social Power again. To be assured of authority based on racial lines, with a egalitarian helpful government towards whites, ensuring a solid 30 year job and educational advances for their children, while actively suppressing progressive gains for The Other.
This is sometimes called Natural Rights, by on-line Conservatives who want to appear intelligent and educated as they try to claim to be more than just pawns of the Rich and Powerful doing the bidding of their Plutocratic Masters. However, just as with the use of the label Classical Liberal, it's a cover term for White Supremacy (not all White Supremacists are Conservative but all Conservatives are White Supremacists). And the whine of white conservatives who are upset the Government and the 1% have broken the White Power Social Contract with them.
When a Gun Nut marches around brandishing a weapon next to a school, or little league baseball field, or in an airport, the white male (cause it's always a middle-aged white guy) is relying on the tacit White Power Social Contract. He isn't a criminal (that's the blacks), he isn't a terrorist (that's the muslims).
Additionally, while Pot has being decriminalized completely in Washington and Colorado and partially in many other States, don't be an unarmed black person killed by a murderous white gun maniac because then the fact you have cannabis in your "system" will be used by the Racist Right-Wing Media to smear you after your death. Because after the Police or self-appointed Watch Captains, gun down an Unarmed Black Person, the first thing to be released is a toxicology report for the dead.
Right-Wing Reactionary Assholes have been demonizing Black and Brown people for a hundred years over the demon weed.
A century ago, William Randolph Hearst used his media empire to publish article after article that Cannabis made Blacks and Mexicans violent, while also emboldening them to look askew at White Women.
Today, Rupert Murdoch and the Right-Wing Media uncritically publish every Police Department's report which declares the unarmed black person killed by Police Officers had Cannabis in their system, giving the black Super-Powers to Shrug off bullets, thus exonerating the Police.
For a group who declares Real Americans can't trust the Government conservatives greedily swallow every Report and every Acquittal of Criminal Cops. However, this becomes easy to understand when one realizes that Conservatives love when Police Officers murder black people.
Because, the underlayment of every Conservative argument, every conservative internet website, every on-line right-wing story is an ardent longing for America of Yesteryear, in which Whites were in Charge and the Nation, Government, City and County were aligned to support White People from the Cradle to the Grave.
