Southern Racism is Alive and Well

To answer all those not living in the south, Jimmy Carter isn’t talking about all whites just southern, “Dixie,” good ole boy, redneck whites. If you don’t live here, and I mean in the good ole boy, redneck south, don’t comment because you will be uninformed.

I travel in my work. There isn’t a day go by I don’t see a confederate flag. And don’t give me some crap about it being “Heritage, not Hate.” That’s nonsense. To an African American it’s the same as a swastika. That’s why rednecks fly them. Ask a redneck down here, they will gladly tell you they hate niggers and would gladly kill the one in the White House.

Many areas down here haven’t changed since the early 60’s. Again, ask them and they will tell you, “The South Shall Rise Again!” And you simple minded, midwest, northern, northwestern people think you understand? You don’t have a clue. Then you want to allow these fools to own guns? What are you nuts?! Come to Dixie, I mean the real south.

Men Buy Guns, Intelligent Men Buy Guns to Hunt

By J. Brett Whitesell

I grew up in a hunting family. My father hunted, he taught me how to hunt when I was younger. His brother’s hunted, as did their children. I used to love to build and shoot black powder rifles and revolvers. Spent many days with friends who also enjoyed shooting black powder. You could spend the day shooting, cleaning, and talking, for about $7.00. When the kids came along I made a decision to sell the guns rather than take a chance on an accident. I took my oldest son to hunting classes, even took the test again. He now hunts and is showing his son how to hunt, who is now 9. The only reason for even listing this drivel is so those with over thick and protruding frontal lobes, reading this understand where I am coming from.

Now, let’s look at some history:

– Aug. 1, 1966: Charles Whitman opens fire from the clock tower at University of Texas, killing 16 people and wounding 31

– May 4, 1970: Four Kent State University students were killed by Ohio National Guard troops, nine people were wounded.

July 12, 1976 Edward Charles Allaway fatally shoots seven fellow employees at California State University, Fullerton, and wounds two others.

– March 24, 1998: Andrew Golden, 11, and Michael Johnson, 13, killed four girls and a teacher at a Jonesboro, Ark., middle school, and wounding 10 others.

This list doesn’t include 6 reported killed in a shooting at a nursing home in Carthage, NC. On March 30th, and five workers shot dead in a plant shooting in Kentucky, it is endless. If this sounds like a lot it barley touches the surface of gun related deaths in America. Consider this, according to latest reports; Germany has an average of 180 gun related deaths per year, The United Kingdom (incl. England, Ireland, and Wales) averages 91, last year there was only 51. In Japan last year there were 3 gun related deaths. They all have strict gun laws.

The United States now averages over 30,000 gun related deaths each year……….30,000!

This is not rocket science, nor does it take a mental giant to look at these numbers and know something has to be done.

Then Everyone Should Have A Gun.

I don’t just mean everyone should have the right to own a gun as the justices and the NRA suggest. I mean everyone gets issued a gun. This IS what they really want right? That IS the purpose in their decision right? Everyone should have a gun? I doubt it. Let’s look at it anyway.

If everyone had a gun on the day of the Virginia Tech killings how many less people would have been killed? How many would he have shot if everyone had a gun one, maybe two before everyone would have opened fire back at him?

What about the redneck killing 5 people at the plastics factory in Kentucky? He might have shot the first victim (supervisor) before all the rest of the workers riddled him with bullets.

The point is for everyone to own guns for their protection right?

We can see how it would have changed the outcome in almost every shooting in America. Ahhhh if only everyone had a gun.

Let’s move on to the next category. I am driving down the road and there is some clown driving right on my rear bumper. What to do? If I slow down they will hit me forcing me off the road and possibly a fatal injury. So I open up the glove box, reach in for my 9mm, turn and shoot. If lucky I will kill him first. That way no one else will have to be afraid for their life because this person is an aggressive driver. Self protection, what do you think?

Then there is the workplace, the subway, little league games, Supreme Court Justices chambers. Now there’s a good one! They affect millions of lives. So, in self protection, if I was a “Left OF Center” thinking Supreme Court judge and there was a major decision to be made, say on automobile safety, and it affected the safety and lives of millions of Americans, then I would be protected under the 2nd Amendment if I shot and killed at least one of the conservative judges correct? Hell, it would be my duty as an American to shoot him!

So, I say to Justice Antonin Scalia, you better be quicker than the next guy.
