    Does race shape Americans' passion for guns? Race and America's gun culture.

    What if large groups of African-American men carrying shotguns and semi-automatic rifles started moseying into stores across America to tout their support of open-carry gun laws?

    Would they be greeted by the same anxious looks shoppers gave groups of armed white men who did the same this summer at Target stores and chain restaurants like Chipotle? Or something more lethal?

    I used to suggest the blacks in Chicago to band together and clean their guns outside on their porches...

    Isn't something similar to that what led to a fully (D) controlled gov't to pass the '68 GCA?

    I think EVERYONE should assert their rights in order to protect them, them being the individuals, their respective race or ethnic group, and their rights.

    Whether people want to admit it or not, race shapes a lot of things.

    It shouldn't, but it does.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
