I got the blues.
Chicago Closer to Concealed Carry- Get the inside update from two veterans in the fight.
On May 30, 2013, I was invited to be part of a three part panel at the Greater Urban League of Washington, Thursday Network. This is a group of 21-40 year old liberal African American professionals that are in the beginning of their journey into business and politics. Most had all the pre-conceived notions that support gun control ideals. They didn’t have a clue but were adamant about what they didn’t know was fiction.
There were about 40-50 attendees. Out of that group, I think I piqued the interest of 10%. Seeing that, I offered training to whomever wanted it and will seek the help of http://www.capitaldefenseinstruction.com real soon to schedule a First Steps like class where we can take this group from 0-55 mph in a nurturing environment.
I was surprised that they seemingly chose a pro-gun panel to speak on the topic Blacks and the Second Amendment. After listening to my colleagues on the panel, I realized they weren’t that informed either and had to temper my responses not to lose any in the audience that was listening and just forming their opinions. It was very hard.
Mr. Andrews and Dr. Richardson are brilliant men, good men but are closer to conspiracies and propaganda than the truth about guns in America. Things that were said set me off more than a couple of times, and since it wasn’t a debate, I had to keep my cool. There were a few good comments made like about prohibition and the repeat felon being the reason for crime in Maryland. Thinking that the topic of Straw Purchases was new or that we can work with current politicians to do something. The off comments about Castle Doctrine, ALEC, RealCo Guns, stand out in my mind though as the subjects that got me twisted.
You should have seen the faces when I said we were responsible and that we should take care of our own families.
I brought my son to be a “fly on the wall” and he was appalled at his peers and the responses heard. He told my wife, “they didn’t like pops too much. He was dropping to much Bro-Science.”
It’s not what we don’t know that gets us in trouble. It’s what we know that isn’t so.” Will Rogers
