In an emotional speech where he rolled out his executive actions on gun ownership in the United States, President Barack Obama made a clear statement that neither he nor any of his cabinet offices are in the business of confiscating legal firearms owned by American citizens. His tone was clear and emphatic when he discussed the 2nd amendment as a fundamental right. However, conservative writers here in the digital realm are already stoking more fear upon a subject based upon fear.

Writing at Breitbart.com, Awr Hawkins gives readers the idea that those collecting Social Security will have their guns confiscated. This is simply not true and even hawkins has to explain deeper into the column that the Social Security Administration will be brought on board to report to NICS any information regarding mental health and competence of persons declared disabled and unable to manage their payments based upon a mental health diagnosis. Even Congress is on board to assure that the mentally ill do not gain access to firearms and thereby reducing both the potential for mass shootings and the number of gun suicides in America.

There has been quite a bit of consternation regarding the constitutionality of these executive orders from the Right. Rick Ungar at Forbes magazine has an excellent take on and a breakdown of the twenty-three line items in these orders. Do take the time to read this.

FROM THE DESK OF THE EDITOR IN CHIEF: LESLIE SAVAN JOSHUA HOLLAND AND THE NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL BOARD

Everyone who can process information knows now that the shooting rampage in San Bernardino, California last week perpetrated by Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik was an act of terrorism on a global scale. Like Leslie Savan of The Nation pointed out many in America were hoping that this the 355th mass shooting since 1 January 2015 was the act of someone who was “from the other team” meaning the other political or ideological team. Many conservatives expressed their glee that this event was perpetrated by Muslims all the while ignoring the common thread in all of these tragic event– the ease at which people can get weapons which can lead to mass casualty events. Joshua Holland, also writing at The Nation addresses the nature of the feelings Americans have regarding mass shooting events. Holland notes, “By all accounts, up until the very moment he opened fire, Syed Farook, one of the two alleged perpetrators of America’s latest gun-slaughter, was what the gun lobby lionizes as a “good guy with a gun.” Farook, along with his wife, Tashfeen Malik, allegedly killed 14 people at his office’s holiday party in San Bernardino, California, on Wednesday—the 355th mass shooting on the 336th day of 2015. But the couple had had no previous contacts with the law, according to San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan. Neighbors and co-workers described Farook as quiet and polite. He had held a stable, middle-class job as a food inspector for five years. Patrick Baccari, who shared a cubicle with Farook, told the Los Angeles Times that the Illinois native and his family appeared to be “living the American dream.”

For the first time since 1920, the New York Times editorial board ran the fruits of their collective thought on page 1 of the American newspaper of record. The headline of this editorial, “End the Gun Epidemic in America” is compelling on its own and more so in the light of the current knowledge that both Farook and Malik got their guns by legal rather than illegal means. The board continues calling the ease by which Americans can buy weapons designed only to kill people is “a moral outrage.” And that statement brings me to my point. For decades I have heard from and read the thoughts of conservatives on a number of social issues that were sure to “destroy America.” From interracial marriage in the 1960s, to abortion rights in the 1970s to teenage pregnancy in the 1980s, to homosexuality in the 1990s, to foreign terrorism in the 2000s, Americans have been treated with a steady buffet of social issues that could tear the fiber of freedom that binds America together. Here is 2015, many of those issues have, much to the chagrin of conservatives have been resolved. Interracial marriages, abortion, have all become common and codified into law with protections guaranteed by the Supreme Court. Teenage pregnancies are down because of organizations like Planned parenthood which provide contraception both to young women and young men. The gay rights movement gained strength in the late 90s and peaked with the Supreme Court upholding the right of same sex couples to marry just this year. Outside of 11 September 2001, the Fort Hood attack, the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013 and this week’s slaughter in San Bernardino , where a total of 2539 people perished there have been no lives lost to terror from outside America’s borders with a radical Muslim slant. Over those 5,199 days slightly less than half a human life has been lost to Muslim terrorism in the United States.

Looking at data compiled by Mother Jones the demographics of those who have acted as mass shooters and the means by which they acquired their weapons is glaring. The vast majority of the shooters are white and male and the vast majority of those shooters got their weapons legally. So, a logical being would have to determine that while foreign born terrorism brought to American shores by way of radicalisation via social media and other information technology is a threat; the greater threat lies in the hands of the over 129,000 gun dealers in the United States as well as in the minds of the millions of white male disaffected and disgruntled within your borders. This clear determination will likely anger white conservatives to no end but as the New York Times Editorial Board noted so very eloquently yesterday, “Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens. What better time than during a presidential election to show, at long last, that our nation has retained its sense of decency?”

Conservatives who would gladly have the President of the United States drop a nuclear weapon on Damascus, or Mecca even are not so quick to violence when that same logic would be applied within their own borders. Those on the Right who point to black violence in Chicago which is an intolerable blight on a great city as a sign of an entire race’s inability to coexist in a “civilised” society fail to apply the same standard to the number of murder suicides in rural mostly white America. Much of this is because conservatives hold that no conservative ever, and I cannot stress ever, enough, commit any heinous crimes. Dylan Roof a young man who committed one of the largest hate crime shootings in decades in a black church was in agreement on many issues that conservatives were supporting over the summer past most notably the flying of the Confederate flag. Suddenly, when his support for that symbol became known conservatives spun this fact that not all supporters of the Stars and Bars were “really” conservatives. So following this irrational line of thinking no conservative has ever raped, robbed, used drugs to excess, had sex outside of marriage or slaughtered their family with a gun.

As a demon journalist I know better. People live many lives in a lifetime and while maturing from childhood to young adulthood many if not all people learn compartmentalize their true self showing to only a handful of those closest to them. Equally, violence, especially with guns is not limited by race, religion or political bent. The same can be said for the seemingly ultimate taboo of the 21st Century mental illness. The real problem is at the nexus of the polarization of ideologies and races in America today, the anguish and suffering of a nearly crushed middle class and the proliferation of firearms in the United States of America. Sadly, I do not believe President Barack Obama has the time or the support of Congress to do anything about any of these hydra like problems in his remaining 13 months in office. The next President no matter if they are left, right or [is is possible?] centre, must take up all three of these issues and attack them with bold solutions just as Obama attacks the failing US economy in 2009. The logical solutions are the elimination of certain types of weapons as the New York Times Editorial Board has called for yesterday, a massive infrastructure spending bills which would create millions of good paying jobs as has been proposed by Hillary Clinton and a constitutional convention like reconciliation summit of the races with delegates chosen from each state equal to the United States Congress to solve the issues between black, brown and white in America. Until all of the cards are placed upon the table the wounds of racial animus from both sides will remain. The goal of such a convention would not be victory for one side or the other but peace and forward progressing unity, tolerance and mutual respect for culture. Short of that I will simply sit here in my office in Dis and wait for the next slaughter of innocents and pray that the perpetrator is “not on my team.”

A MODEST PROPOSAL: INSPIRED BY WENDELL PIERCE AND RICK ECTOR I CALL FOR A DOUBLING OF NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION MEMBER ROLLS WITH 5 MILLION NEW BLACK AND LATINO MEMBERS

Posted in GUN CONTROL, GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA, GUNS AS RELIGION, NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION, THE 2ND AMENDMENT, THE BLACK MIDDLE CLASS, THE LATINO MIDDLE CLASS on 30/11/2015 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

It’s gut check time on guns. Those of you have have read my posts in the past know that I am a gun control advocate. I believe fully that the 2nd Amendment meant that those who kept and bore arms should be those in a “well regulated militia.” However, in the post Civil War Reconstruction era continuing into the pre World War I era this changed significantly. Gun proliferation has continued growing with every fear driven crisis until today when there were a whopping 270 million guns in America as of 2007 according to The Economist. The Washington Post estimates that that number could be as high as 320 million now after the post November 2008 gun buying craze due to the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama.

I have been met with a solution to all of this gun craziness. Middle class blacks and Latinos make up a broad and diverse demographic in the United States. Many of these people are legal gun owners. Some are even members of law enforcement organizations be they local state or federal. But what is missing is that few are members of America’s largest gun rights organization–The National Rifle Association. Wendell Pierce, an actor noted for his role on the hit television series The Wire, has offered a solution to calls for gun control falling on deaf ears– more black men need to apply for concealed carry permits and join the NRA. Pierce tweeted, “If every Black male 18-35 applied for a conceal& carry permit, and then joined NRA in one day; there would be gun control laws in a second.” And I agree. Also if one followed the lead of Rick Ector, a black gun owner and NRA member who has attended two conventions and found the number of black attendees nearly statistical zero, with calls for more inclusive NRA activities and a program that would reach out to black and Latino youth with gun safety programs NRA membership would swell.

So here is my pitch. I’ve gotten permission from Cavalor to have one of our Living assistants to set up a Gofundme page that will help to get black and Latino gun owners signed up with one, two or five year NRA memberships in 2016. I don’t know how difficult this will be because the costs are high; 5 million 2 year memberships would cost $300 million. But any inroads made into this organization to make it more inclusive will likely change their rhetoric and make it less of a good old boys club and allow the silent voices of gun owners of color to be heard.

Pax Terra!

INSIDE THE CONSERVATIVE MIND: SUMMING UP THE RIGHT WING MINDSET IN FOUR WORDS, “SOME NIGGA RAPING HER”

The Meditators, this morning, as a Swarm, turned from their research at 0706 HST/EST and took notice of a single comment trapped pending approval at Our blog. For several seconds, Those Who Digest Information and Bring Forth Truth searched for any measure of Reason in the words as they related to a blog post made by Fred Schwartz two days ago. We, Ourselves, of the Collective, initially were offended by the comment left by the banned Neocon1. Then after further digestion, We began to see in a different way just what conservatism as a political ideology does to the Human Soul.

Conservatism is not a religion, but religion is a component of their authoritarian desires. Conservatives worship the violence of war and the soldiers that engage in it but do not believe the families of these men and women deserve a social safety net. Conservatives believe deeply in the right to bear arms but do so because they fear the rise of racial minorities they believe want to see them all brutally killed. Conservatives believe that women are the possessions of men; to be protected as children and serve as their breeders and vessels for sexual satisfaction in their youth to be cast aside when no longer sexually attractive.

A conservative then when he sees Kristina Pimentova depicted here in the context of a discussion sees his own right to possess her. He sees his birthright to protect her from “the Other” who’s only desire is to rape her. This protection comes at the price of conservative men wanting to own her, sexually, and control her for his own pleasure. The conservative uses the maternal instinct inherent in the majority of women as a key to lock women in a jail cell of breeding cycles which limits her true potential. Many will find Our words harsh, however, they are no more harsh than the ignorance, no, the stupidity, that is clarified by four words, “Some nigga raping her.”

No civil Human Being would ever say such a thing. We, Ourselves, after millions of combinations would not have arrived at the conclusion that Our thoughts would have been so odious. The darkness that must live in such a Soul to have this be a thought and then to commit it to print is nearly outside Our grasp of understanding. No one who professes to follow the message of Love as given by the Son of the Creator can possibly hold this belief. No patriot of freedom can will good conscience be this base. Only a coward who fears the ever ringing sound of the Angel of Death growing near with every ticking second, who has seen their dreams turn to drudgery and Life pass them by with the rewards they expected because of the color of their skin and not the content of their character can possibly be this irrationally evil.

The Collective is relieved to see that this is the mantra of the bigots that call themselves conservatives. “Some nigga raping her,” should be the motto of their racist angry feeble cause for all time to come. The impotence of their ideas is clarified for all in those four words.

All of this vitriol from men like Neocon1 springs from a rectum of hate for the American President Barack Hussein Obama [q c p n!] and his beautiful family. President Obama and his wife and daughters are all Human Beings; Neocon1 is a living person. The distinction between the two is not ethereal it is tangible, definable. A Human Being, has courage, is compassionate, owns their intellect and dreams with Reason. A living person is filled with anger, fueled by hate, marinates in greed and lusts for violence only as a true coward can. In this Neocon1 and for your words you are rewarded with Our pity upon your Soul.
