Skip to comments.NAACP lays out five point plan to reduce gun violence
Posted on 07/15/2014 7:28:20 PM PDT by Q-ManRN
Grown-up time means Jim Vincent, president of the Rhode Island NAACP, calling a news conference on the steps of the Garrahy Judicial Complex in response to a drive-by shooting in Chad Brown late Tuesday night in which five people were injured. The NAACP, in consultation with other neighborhood groups, issued a Call to Action, demanding that Providence Mayor Angel Taveras call a leadership conference to discuss solutions to a problem that is putting families and children at risk.
In addition to the leadership conference the NAACP also called upon Governor Chafee to direct the Governors Workforce Board to establish targeted workforce development programs in neighborhoods with high unemployment.
Vincent also wants Mayor Taveras to evaluate the Providence Recreation Department to determine its effectiveness in providing recreation and youth development services to increase its relevancy.
Vincent also wants 15% of the Google settlement money. This would provide about $30 million to support youth development and ex-offender training and employment programming, a real investment in our communities.
Lastly, the NAACP wants the Public Safety Commission to establish a community liaison to connect high crime neighborhoods with the police department to help prevent wars and provide mediation support.

And if you look at the pictures at the bottom, Michael Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety was there reassuring us that the government can protect us from violent criminals.
Of course, none of the proposed solutions deals directly with disarming criminals or provides any practical means of self-defense. Most of those people will never understand why things never change while they continue waiting for someone else to solve the problem of violence for them. That is what really makes me feel sad for those folks.
How about my 2-point plan?
2. Goodbye rap music
Providence NAACP says government will stop “gun violence”.
1. Blame guns.
2. Blame conservatives.
3. Blame da poll-ese.
4. Blame Bush.
5. Gimme mo money.
Midnight basketball makes its return...
Exactly. Women, marry the men before you have sex with them.
That would solve 90% of the “gun violence” problems.
My plan is...
1. Take guns away from the bad guys.
2. Arm the good guys.
A authentic Adult Male On the Home preferably the father of any children theerin..would go a LONG wy towards quashing the gang culture
gangas arent anything but violent cults ..and replacements for family for the feral yout!
1. Vote Republican
2. Have fathers
3. Shoot thugs
WE need a `Call to Action,’ some kind of federal program!
We’re always reading here about Chicago shootings: `25 shot, one killed; 34 shot, 2 dead.’
I’m thinking some range time for inner city, licensed gun owners might be a good idea.
Free ammo, coaching, targets, etc. Feel me?
And exactly how would you plan on taking guns away from the bad guys?
"How did you meet the Kingfish, Mr. Brown?"
"Well, one day at the carnival, I reached into my pocket to get my wallet, and shook hands with the Kingfish."
Sandra Fluke is not pleased with you.
(1) establish targeted workforce development programs in neighborhoods with high unemployment.
(2)evaluate the Providence Recreation Department to determine its effectiveness in providing recreation and youth development services to increase its relevancy.
(3) provide about $30 million to support youth development and ex-offender training and employment programming, a real investment in our communities.
(4) Lastly, the NAACP wants the Public Safety Commission to establish a community liaison to connect high crime neighborhoods with the police department to help prevent wars and provide mediation support.
Rhode Island is the liberal crap-hole of the north-east with only Boston to object. Phhtttt.
How about cut taxes and regulations so we can create some JOBS??
The first point should be to shut down racebaiting groups who are out there stirring the race pot all of the time to keep the big bucks coming in.
1. Mother and fathers stay together
2. Thug music / culture eliminated
3. Less drugs, more hugs
4. Work for a living. Learn to live on your own dime instead of others.
5. God and prayers back in schools and in personal life. Every child should know the 10 Commandments by 2nd grade.
No need for gun control because there will substantially less criminal activity.
Will these measures solve the problem? No. Is there more they could do? Absolutely. They could provide firearms training to citizens to allow them to protect themselves. They could bring in the non-profit organization (the name escapes me) that's been providing free training and free shotguns to inner city women in Texas. Any of those things would help the people to protect themselves from the violence around them. But their proposals might help.
> And exactly how would you plan on taking guns away from the bad guys?
Magnets. Very strong magnets...: )
In all my years watching these people I have never seen a single time when they proposed a “solution” that did not entail them being given money that they did not earn or deserve and were not entitled to in any way.
LOL! Great response. ;-)
But whatever you do, don’t look at the DemocRat plan to destroy the black family by trapping them out of wedlock and on the government dole.
1. Shall issue ccw
2. Stop listening to rap
3. Stop and frisk in tough neighborhoods
4. Get married
There aren’t five points. There’s only one:
Charge the NAACP under the RICO Act.
No surprise, no useful suggestions at all.
It's like Jackson and Sharptongue embezzling funds from corporations because they don't want to fight a boycott.
Well, to be honest I also did not see where they called for the disarming of the dishonest and lawbreaking people either.
But this being New England, I would think circumventing the Second Amendment would be a least 1 thru 4 on their list of five points.
Lemme guess: all five involves taking what is mine, what I have a constitutional right to keep and bear.
25% of a certain Demographic that consists of 12% of the total Population is responsible for over 50% of the Violent Crime in this Country.
That boils down to the fact that 3% of the entire Population is responsible for over 50% of the Violent Crime.
Guess who is “represented” by the NAACP...
U.ncle S.ugar won't like that.
God help us!
Providence has forgotten about Providence
five point plan is laughable and just wealth transference to black charity orgs. lining pockets.
Let me guess......Their plan involves coming after MY guns and not those in the inner cities. Am I close?
“1. Blame guns.
“2. Blame conservatives.
“3. Blame da poll-ese.
“4. Blame Bush.
“5. Gimme mo money.
You left out “6. Blame whitey.”
There is the rub. It can’t be done. I use step #1 of this plan on the libs at work to show how foolish their gun control folly is. You understand as well as many, you might as well wish for unicorns. It has about as much chance of happening as gun laws making criminals give up their guns.
