This appears to be a very strongly leftist event. It might be worth while to attempt to make some positive SYG points, but I suspect you would be shouted down.

Trayvon Martin, for all we know, was a useless black punk teen, who messed with an armed observer of his presence where he did NOT belong.

The country has been so brain-washed into thinking that "Racism" is somehow an excuse for blacks to get away with attempted murder, even when they wind up over-reaching their limits and wind up earning their Just Reward.

I would suggest any FReepers who are NRA and GOA and local gun club members in the area to alert others about it. If the majority of the seats can be filled with pro-self defense people it is going to be difficult for them to advance their agenda.

Looks like a good place to suggest black groups support Constitutional Carry and repeal of laws banning felons from firearm ownership. A person is a citizen, even after being released from prison. As a matter of fact, such laws do nothing to keep guns out of criminals hands and leave the poor and the convicted but now free helpless.

As an NRA instructor, I’d make the trip to make the presentation if others will help with getting the posters and materials distributed at the meeting. I will even cover the cost of the posters and materials.

Blacks should be supporting the Florida gun laws, as they are the most frequent victims of the Urban Ferals. Being frequent victims, they need firearms.

If a man/woman is free to walk the streets, said walk should not be in fear. The Second Amendment and its entire legislative intent history SEZ SO!

Brevard Ping List temporarily out of order. Strong RAT presence in the Melbourne Parade. Curiously, the "99%" were driving Corvettes. Big bossy QBU haranguing the float folks.

Looks like you have a nice "who not to vote for" list there.
