Posted on 04/04/2012 10:43:12 AM PDT by kristinn
Several Congressional Black Caucus members have introduced a resolution that memorializes 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and calls for the repeal of controversial gun laws that allow shooters to claim self-defense.
The resolution states that the February shooting of Martin sets a horrific precedent of vigilante justice and compromises the integrity of the legal system. It also says assailant George Zimmermans unfounded assumptions and racial bias led to the use of deadly force.
Zimmermans family and lawyer have refuted claims that he shot Martin because he was black.

The interesting times we are living in.
So anyone, anywhere who is really defending themselves would go to jail because a Hispanic guy shot a black guy who was beating his head on the ground? Idiocy at it’s worst.
Let's call it the No_Limit_Ni**a Resolution
I put secondary responsibilty for his treatment at the feet of these race-baiting goons who egg on the thug mindset with their exhorations that defy what we know of this case.
Wow! Who saw this coming?!
Fine with me. The only laws I require are laid out in a couple of older documents. One of which clearly states that I have been endowed, by my Creator, with certain unalienable rights. That among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
That and the other document that states in part...."the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
Everything else is simply an infringement and is unconstitutional anyway.
If Trayvon be beatin’ yo head, you let’im go on till you are dead.
Look at the bright side...
The real racists are on full display for the country to see. Keep talking morons...
The klan with a tan, at it again.
The ‘Black Caucus’ really says it all; they are the racists and American society is so dysfunctional that we have to endure these frivolous gestures. Treyvon Martin is a dime a dozen. Just another young, black thug..living out this rotten ‘gangsta’ lifestyle..I don’t mourn him. This is why people should be armed and be able to defend themselves..some of us know about all the black hate crimes that are swept under the rug and I am fed up with these charlatans.
“Several Congressional Black Caucus members...”
Would that include CBC member, and FR hero Allen West?
Two can play at this “racist” thing. There are worse things to be, such as dead. Holder wants his “revenge”-he knows not what he does.
How about their logic is to remove a victims' right to self defense in order to prevent someone from becoming a victim like Hoodie McSkittles.
Will these racists also call or laws to protect whites from black crime?
The new law will read like this: Any white man thought to have killed a black man will be immediately shot by a member of the Black Panthers.
Shoot it down! (no pun intended)
“the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
Most black folks I know are gun owners. I don’t think they would like being told they can’t defend themselves.
:: calls for the repeal of controversial gun laws that allow shooters to claim self-defense. ::
When a black man shoots a skin-head who is attempting a back-alley lynching, they will be ^outraged^ that the law was changed.
I think the Congressional Black Caucus should be banned because it is by it’s very title racist.
There will be so much weeping and bleeding that the race baiters will rue the day they were born.
Since blacks commit the vast majority of crimes, including violent crimes, it comes as no surprise that they want to take away the right of self defense. Especially for white people.
The liberal black lawmakers just don’t want you to shoot their future electorate, but it seems to me they are doing a pretty good job of it themselves. They should craft a law to somehow reintroduce a civilized culture into the black community.
AS I fight the creeping racism in my own heart through all of this, I have to wonder how those who have no brakes such as belief in Judgement from God, are beginning to feel.
As Jesus’s prophecy about nation rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom comes to pass, I can only weep for America, for what is coming.
Today is like the last scene of Terminator where Sarah Conner gets her picture taken and there’s a storm coming...
I’m not even going to try to fight it any longer, and yes a storm is coming, quickly.
Sorry, but they don't hear it.....they're too busy watching American Idol.
Maybe they should run some statistics on what is more dangerous. How many deaths have occurred unlawfully (not ruled protecting oneself) from registered gun owners?
How many deaths have occurred from young thugs either with or without a gun?
I would say possibly 1% registered gun owners (if that)
and the other 99% goes to the second group. Now which group are you against Black Lawmakers? Oh of course the one that has killed your only black student which most definitely was due to his use of deadly force against an armed man.
You know what - why in the world do we allow the Black caucus to continue? Or the Black Panthers? Or the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People)
I am not racist - but this type of nonsense causes my blood to boil. My son wants to start a group called NAAWP (National Association for the Advancement of White People) to counteract what these other groups are doing. Not because he is racist either, but because he believes where is the fairness in even promoting such a thing in this day and age? Really - what is the point?
Boehner should rule this wacky bill out-of-order, because it’s based on a false assumption.
All the evidence supports Zimmerman’s story, i.e., that Trayvon attacked physically first, with deadly intent (”you’re going to die tonight”). Self-defense is justified here, there’s no vigilante justice or rush to judgment, except for the CBC.
Yes let's call it the Trayvon Martin SENSEBLE NAMING, SENSEBLE PARENTING and NO THUGGERY FOR BLACKS ACT OF 2012. The law would be no naming your kids 'creative names' (such as Trayvon, or LaMarquez), having the sperm donors in the kids life and having them do their homework and making sure there are dressed like people should be dressed....not having there boxers showing!! (had a guy in for an interview...he came in looking like he doesn't care, his boxers were showing and his jeans were about 6 sizes to big for him.)
ROFLMAO. That’s getting stolen for damn sure.
Damn, I shoulda known.
Well, this should help.
Well, sounds like it’s time to order 2000 more bullets and hit the range again.
(I actually do that for every article)
See-oot! Yous b’ a poet, an didn’t even know it!
that is the law the democrats want to return to.
remember bernard getz on the NYC subway?
remmber folks this stand your ground was also a TORT REFORM. It neutered the nusance suits from lawyers and anti-civil rights groups.
The more we learn the more I think this law needs to be enhanced against those who would steal it. Perhaps it should be made a florida constitutional amendment.
Hey, Emanuel Cleaver, “Where’s the spit?”
More dumbass racism from the Black Caucus. No surprise here. people are waking up to the fact that black on white crime is the real problem. That it is a tidal wave suppressed by the liberal media
Nope, people have the right to self-defense against all races of thugs.
