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....
