    Group Protests Police Violence by Open Carrying Guns

    http://eaglerising.com/8135/group-pr...carrying-guns/

    Some of our fellow citizens in Texas did something "provocative." The question is - why has their chosen form of protest become provocative?

    The group decided to protest an overly aggressive Dallas police force by exercising their right to open carry.

    The twist that you might not have seen coming?

    These protesters are African-American.

    The people who decided to do this are from the Huey P. Newton Gun Club were spurred to action by the recent shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. However they do have their own local ax to grind.

    Dallas, Texas is a hot bed for police shootings of unarmed individuals. Of the over 70 shootings of unarmed individuals, only one has brought down a criminal indictment of the police officer in question. (The one that was indicted came after surveillance video was found that contradicted the officer’s story.)

    I know, long gun carry, but that is the only OC legal in Texas.

    I believe that this was more correct area to post.

    This affects much more than Texas.

    How on earth would they know these people were "African-American"?
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    For starters, they are named after Huey P. Newton, one of the founders of the 1960's Black Panther party, and they probably self-identified themselves to the press as such.

    As for the poor term "African-American," that would be in another debate, so I'm assuming you are not being facetious.

    From the article - "Instead they open carry, and by doing so they remind the local government that “we the people” will not allow the government to rule us tyrannically."
