arma virumque cano (et alia)
This ad demonstrates an incredibly important reality: law enforcement failed to protect black citizens from rape, beatings, torture, and murder. Even worse, law enforcement participated in some of those horrific events.This is why every U.S. citizen should fight to preserve their unalienable right to be armed. Government and police failed -- and even outright attacked U.S. citizens in the past -- and it could happen again.Newsflash: it is much more difficult for a mob to rape, beat, torture, and murder someone or their family if that person, their family, and their neighbors are armed.
Do you use a random adjective generator? Your descriptions of things are never apt.
Given the record of history, the ad is far from ridiculous.
Oh, is that right. You really don't think it's ridiculous? The images of government men rousting people from their beds because they'd already confiscated all the guns - that sounds reasonable to you?
Presuming that the guns could be removed, what would stop the government from doing that whenever it pleased?
No, I don't find it ridiculous to remind people of the racist history of gun control. Of course, I saw no "government men" in the ad, either.
It already has happened, Mike. Hence the remark about history. Then there is this.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_American_internmentSo yes, it is reasonable.
I'm guessing Robert Williams wouldn't have a problem with that ad.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_F._Williamsorlin sellers
