Gosh, I wonder what it is about this man that's making right-wingers suspend their usual Second Amendment principles. Hmmm, let me think....

The tattoo on his face says, "Kill Whitey" in block letters, and cops say the gun he carried was loaded and unlicensed.

But that didn't stop Maruse Heath -- head of the Philadelphia chapter of the New Black Panther Party -- from claiming that he's really all about charity and outreach as he was arraigned on a gun-possession charge in Manhattan last night....

Heath, aka "King Salim Shabazz," was arrested on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard as he left a meeting of New Black Panther Party members....

Heath was unjustly "jumped" by cops as he left the meeting and walked near Seventh Avenue, said his lawyer, Brad Foster....
Funny, I would have expected the right to say that the gun was unlicensed under the terms of Mike Bloomberg's fascist laws, and so what if it was loaded? What's wrong with open carry, which should be permitted everywhere? (Especially given the fact that, for all his angry rhetoric, he seems to be all talk and no action, and seems not to be up on any other criminal charges.)

But gosh, that's not what I'm seeing at the right-wing blogs -- there's triumphal snickering at Weasel Zippers and Jammie Wearing Fools and other right-wing blogs ("Things That Make You Smile"). You guys! Where are your principles?

Back in 2011, gun charges were leveled in New York against Mark Meckler, founder of the Tea Party Patriots and also somewhat of a race-baiter (he once coauthored a Politico op-ed that said the NAACP "has long history of liberalism and racism" and asserted that if you disagree with the NAACP "You will be subjected to public humiliation and racist commentary from NAACP leadership"). Meckler's crime was somewhat different -- he tried to declare an unloaded, lawful firearm at La Guardia Airport -- but the incident led rightbloggers to declare virtually all gun control in New York to be a violation of the fundamental rights of man. Under the headline "Tea Party Leader's Gun Arrest Highlights Tyranny of Law," PJ Media told us this:
The role of legislators in a free society is not to make law, but to discover it. The "laws of Nature and Nature's God" are not crafted by men, and ought to both supersede and underlie our civil decrees. Indeed, that is the root of the Declaration of Independence. Men have rights, and their government ought to proceed from those rights and secure them.

Such lofty notions are frequently lost in our modern political discourse, where the craft of law has become social engineering, saving us from ourselves. In such an environment, it is inevitable that we should arrive at a tyranny of law, where the web of bureaucracy and regulation is so intricate, tangled, and sticky that every man becomes a criminal in one way or another regardless of his character or conduct.
After Meckler pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge and paid a $250 fine (and surrendered his gun), Bob Owens -- the Artist Fomerly Known as Confederate Yankee -- wrote:
It's absurd that Meckler – and for that matter, any other citizen- has to abide by a hodgepodge of thousands of arbitrary state and local laws that are enforced by whim and prosecuted merely for political convenience. This case is a perfect examples of a careful, concerned and respectful citizen attempting to respect the law is persecuted in jurisdictions where the God-given right to self defense is not respected by petty tyrants.
So it's not just that Meckler tried to follow the law by checking his gun (even though he didn't try to follow the law in the locale to which he was traveling). It's that there's a "God-given right to self defense" -- or as PJ Media puts it, gun ownership is part of the "laws of Nature and Nature's God."

Apparently Nature's God is not Maruse Heath's God.

But Nature's God is Mark Meckler's God. Gosh, what's different about Mark Meckler? Oh yeah, he looks like this:

2nd Amendment Rule:
The whiter shade of pale you are, the more guns and gun rights you have - the darker the shade from pale, the less.

I've been saying this for years - the more guns black people start to have, the more gun control laws will get passed.

Hell, even St. Ronnie was for gun control, back when the real Black Panthers started to arm themselves and the black folks in their neighborhoods, back in the late 60's, to defend themselves from the police, and white crackers.

And the influx of crack cocaine and guns in black neighborhoods, as the end result of the US government's (St. Ronnies, and RINO Bush I's) Iran-Contra-Cocaine program, helped bring more gun control - because the violence spread out from beyond just black neighborhoods.

And our white gun nuts don't really care anymore if black people in the cities are armed, like they might have been before.

But I'm not sure even our most "patriotic" 2nd Amendment defenders, wouldn't call for some stricter gun control laws if the black and brown people, as they move out of the cities to make room for gentrification by wealthy white people, moved out of them and into their white neighborhoods, armed.
Black and brown folks would be silly to not do that.

And yes, there will be blood.
But eventually, to stop the shedding of it, the government may be forced to resort to much stricter gun control laws - and that's if the white crackers don't call for it first.
Staying ahead of 'the Black Jones's," regarding arms, will be expensive.

I'm probably wrong about this scenario - it's early on a Sunday morning, and I haven't finished my coffee yet, so, if this amuses you, I can understand, because I'm not fully awake yet, after a virtually sleepless night.
