Came across this FB group while seeing if the local chapter in Louisville was up to anything stupid. We don't have a John Brown Gun Club here in KY as far as I know but it looks like you have one in Ohio now.

For reference to the group, and why they are actually Antifa, here are a few videos.

I've read reports from folks down in TX that Antifa folks have been coming to events armed with long guns and at various times actually point their weapons at low ready at "fascists". At the very least I've seen photos at events with very poor trigger discipline on their SKS rifles...

Stay safe out there. Cheers.

How does one define a "club" - a FB page with no apparent local activity?

They were pointing guns at themselves?

Fascism is the political 'schmoo', whatever one wants it to be and tastes good too!

Smooz much?

Verb - the act of speaking in a manner that will get listeners to do as you please.
noun - someone who says anything to get what they want out of people. :lol:

Mammy Okum knew how to fix that.

What is Okum?

A vaguely positive response that hides the fact that you don't give a snit either way. :p

If handled very carefully and only in the Social Lounge.
You've lost me. Was there some problem with posting it?

Also, this would be interesting to attend. Curious to hear what would be discussed at this course beyond standard CCW stuff


https://www.facebook.com/events/127978494469084/?acontext={"ref":"3","ref_newsfeed_story_type":"regular","action_history":"null"}

Join The Brown Girls Project for our Brown Girls with Guns CCW Class. This is an Ohio Concealed Carry Class. It meets the Ohio training requirements necessary to obtain a Handgun Concealed Permit for Ohio, Florida and many other states.

Our goal is to join forces with the strongest links in our community, our black women, to educate them on gun laws and handling firearms. In these trying times we live in, we have to protect ourselves and our families by any means necessary.

This is a one-day course(8am-6pm) that starts in a classroom environment and moves to the shooting range for practice. The class will be instructed by Joe Porter of RideorDie513, a Certified NRA Pistol Instructor and Certified NRA Trainin..

The objection was to the sign that amounted to hate speech attacking various groups.

The brown women's group is not a problem, but take note that it promotes CC not OC which is the primary function of this site.

Hate speech no longer exists. And if it does, it is constitutionally protected.

Supreme Court unanimously reaffirms: There is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment
By Eugene Volokh June 19

From today’s opinion by Justice Samuel Alito (for four justices) in Matal v. Tam, the “Slants” case:

[The idea that the government may restrict] speech expressing ideas that offend … strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”


Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote separately, also for four justices, but on this point the opinions agreed:
