Skip to comments.House Dems eye policy responses to Trayvon Martin shooting death
Posted on 04/01/2012 9:52:57 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
In the wake of the slaying of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, House Democrats are drafting legislation designed to prevent similar tragedies in the future.
The lawmakers want to adopt tougher rules for neighborhood watch programs, eliminate certain state gun laws, rein in racial profiling and require an examination of racial disparities nationwide.
The Democrats behind the legislation all members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) say the steps might have prevented last month's fatal encounter between Martin, 17, an unarmed African-American walking home from a convenience store in Sanford, Fla., and George Zimmerman, 28, a Latino neighborhood watch volunteer carrying a 9mm handgun.

Paging Captain Renault. Captain Renault the white courtesy phone please.
Like water seeking an opening in the dam, they are not going to stop seeking ways to disarm law-abiding Americans until they’ve achieved their goal. Alinskyites are relentless.
These black caucus socialist must be prevented from sticking their power-grab legislation snouts into what are STATE and LOCAL jurisdictions.
Stay outta my local property owners' association, you consumate meddling dictators!
The bass turd 'RATS are just begging for a civil war. Americans are getting tired of their commie bull****. Hey buffoons! The Bill of Rights belong to us! Not to you! You gave up the Bill of Rights when you became THE GOVERNMENT!
After you, sir...
Yes, yes, why don’t you make the black thug culture illegal.
Thugs belong in jail, in fact they want to be in jail so much they dress like jailbirds, so put them in jail.
It is going to be riots and burned out urban areas this summer.
Since the shooter was a Democrat the solution is simple - no Democrats are allowed to have guns or knives. Also, they must all move to South Chicago.
I don't actually support a ban, but it would be nice to actually have a real debate about the actual incident.
That always fixes stuff!
Replace Neighborhood Watch groups with Welcome Wagons for Thugs.
Meanwhile, in Chicago, Detroit et al, the slaughter continues unabated and without a whimper from cbc
Well the Gunrunners thing didn't really work out the way they hoped and I think despite the MSM giving it all they can this is falling apart too.
Please, please, please bring this to a vote as soon as possible. I would love to see how many Dems will vote for this. I want them on record before the elections.
Hoodie in your own hood?
Social Justice is nothing more than a power play for political dominance.
hmm what we need is an affirmative action program.. blacks should be allowed to kill as many whites as whites kill blacks.. What? you say they already kill twice as many whites, more than whites kill blacks... Well that won’t work then.. How about we say that one 2 whites equal one black... hmmm that sounds fair... ya thats it just declare that ratio to be equitable and we already have justice for all........
Problem solved except we don’t know how to classify the half-breeds in this equation.... Oh well something to work on....
Yup! Taking away people’s guns doesn’t fly in this country. Too many Americans still reside here.
Always ready to support black-on-white crime.
Replace National Night Out with National Night In, and allow the criminals and delinquents to have free reign over all neighborhoods that night.
How ‘bout we outlaw assault, after all Trayvon’s assault (allegedly) precipitated this incident... Oh yeah, it’s already illegal.
Those exploiting this for political gain make me ill, and I very much hope it backfires on them.
In the meantime, my firearms budget just keeps going up and up. ;-)
New signs at entry of gated communities:
“You are not under video surveilance and our neighborhood watch people are unarmed. Come on in!”
"I am tired of burying young black boys," Wilson said Tuesday during a Capitol Hill forum on hate crimes and racial profiling. "I have buried too many, cried too many tears, attended too many funerals and it is unnecessary."Oh really, Rep Wilson. Then I suggest that 'your people' start acting civilized. First start by making speak ENGLISH!
In reading little angel Trayvon's tweets I couldn't understand any of it. Not what he said or what his 'Homies' tweeted back to him. It was more like some primitive tribal jungle language than ENGLISH (awwwww, you thank that's racist, right? well bite me.)
And second, make 'your people' understand that they aren't anyone special. And that if anyone asks -- not axes -- them something they are not being "Disrespected" and a physical confrontation is the mandatory action they must automatically take. In any case 'Respect' is something one earns and today they haven't earned anything, EXCEPT disrespect for acting like feral animals. (there I go again, being racist. oh well, too bad, deal with it)
And then Rep Wilson make 'your people' get it into their thick skulls that if they act like 'gangstas', they will be treated as such. And as 'St Trayvon' found out, that can end badly.
Lastly Rep Wilson, you and your fellow race hustlers know very well the REAL reason that all your 'young boys' eventually make up the majority of prison inmates when Blacks are only 13% of the entire population. It's because they commit most of the crime, 'lady'. And you know it!
So have a nice day and keep up the feigned outrage over the fate of 'your peoples' youth.
ps: The act of having eight children by five girl friends doesn't make one a MAN. It just means that said male can reproduce like any other feral animal in the jungle.
No to trying to make new gun laws for the states unless you all want a wipe out in the 2012 election but OTOH you all are complete idiots to think a parson is not allowed to self defend?
If anyone can find pics from yesterday's protest that show larger crowds, by all means add them to this thread.
I wonder if there is more “burying young black boys” due to other black boys than whites?
The latest iteration in the array of criminal racist demagoguery from the Racist-in-Chief and his nasty foot soldiers.
No way these hypocritical big mouths would simply lie down and succumb if they they were jumped and beaten by the No_Limit_Ni**a.
so here we go as predicted - gun control for the non-hoddies
punish and restrict the ability to defend life and home from one group who wasn’t even a party to this, in the name of ‘black justice’
I feel like I’m in the 50’s and Sharpton is George Wallace
It WOULD, according to real world statistics, enable the gruesome murders of countless more white "racists" by Hoody Amish.
Happy April Fool's Day anyway.
So now the US Congress has the constitutional power to regulate local neighborhood watchers?
