I did a little googling on this awhile back. And, I found that when the Texas constitution was rewritten after the Civil War (I live in Texas, God Bless Texas) statutes addressing guns were written with the purpose of preventing recently freed blacks from possessing and carrying guns. An example; until recently, when the Texas gun law portion of the constitution was amended, it stated (paraphrasing) that “one may carry a weapon while traveling”. So, you’re thinking what’s wrong with that? Well, the definition of traveling was no spelled out. In some juristictions traveling was defined as crossing a county line others defined it as spending the night away from ones residence, others set traveling a distance of 100 miles. In other words, the definition of traveling was arbitrary - in the eye of the beholder. Consequently, the traveling law was a defense. Meaning that the law officer who pulled you over was empowered to decide on the scene if you were in compliance or not based upon his personal opinion. If you were apprehended, then you would be required to defend yourself in the local court where you were apprehended. Obviously, especially up to the past couple of decades or so, if you should not be white you would probably not only be arrested but also found guilty by the loal judge - after spending a few days in jail. Conversely, most whites would be waved on their merry way. While not a student of this, I have read enough writings n this subject to say that most state gun laws, both north and south, were rewritten after the Civil War with limiting black ownership in mind. I find it strange that today’s blacks don’t see this.....
The group called women doesn't have that intense death wish, but a consistent and very real majority do like to be treated like dependent beggars. A woman capable of caring for herself is anathema to Democrats.
Democrats need and encourage dependency. It's who they are. Luckily, they have a majority of women who like that status, and an overwhelming and growing majority of blacks who want it as well.
I don’t know about guns, but they shouldn’t vote.
Apparently, those in Colordo get what they voted for.
In the meantime, to this giant anal orifice by the name of Joe Salazar:
When YOU are attacked & raped-—then you can come to the surface & tell all of us women just how we should protect ourselves......For most of us, a gun is our first line of defense.
Don’t tell me to have a WHISTLE handy-—
Don’t tell me to have a PAIR OF SCISSORS handy......
Don’t tell me to have a CURTAIN ROD handy......
Until you have spent time on the patrol with those in your area who deal with sexual predator crimes, you are totally CLUELESS!!!!!
The pain, degredation & permanent damage done to a woman by a rape cannot be expressed.
Tell me I don’t need a gun?
Tell me I am mentally unstable & shouldn’t have a gun???
Just HOW MENTALLY UNSTABLE do you think the rapist is????
Get your head on straight, Mr Salazar.
At this point, you NEVER deserve to be re-elected, IMO.
Bill 521 in PA has no hope in hell in seeing the light of day. With that said, I fully believe in gun control for blacks. 90+ percent of blacks voted for Barak Obama. They are the enemy. And this is serious ... do you really want to arm you enemy? I consider this the same as sending enriched uranium to Iran. If fact, we face a greater threat from blacks in America than we do from Iran. My comments are based on statistics. It is more dangerous to be in Chicago and killed by a black than to be in Iraq or Afghanistan. Now that doesn’t address Iran, sorry for the mixed metaphor earlier, but how many Americans have been killed by Iran in the last year? Two, three maybe? How about Chicago?
If a Republican had said this he’d be lynched and forced to resign.
I’m a woman and I own a gun. I’m a good shot, too. I keep hoping a Democrat will break into my house. Of course, I won’t know he’s a Democrat until after I shoot him dead.
