Gun Control

I have been asked in my private life about my thoughts on the White House position on guns.  I am not known for being the biggest anti-gun person on the planet.  I even told one person during a conversation I would no longer be a Democrat if the party seeks to eradicate the 2nd Amendment.  I believe in and participate in the right to defend my home.  When I mention gun control, I am usually referring to the practice of shooting with eyes open and no sneezing.  I was reared in a home filled with guns, shooting my first 410 at age 7.  Guns and the accurate shooting of guns are almost genetic in my family.  I write almost for I made a decision, prior to having children of my own, to stop the madness. 

It is pure madness to have at a minimum one gun in each room of your home.  It is insane to teach a child how to kill before you teach the child how to love.  There is a huge chasm between the reality of actions and the ideals of words when one prepares to take the life of another while claiming to live in faith on the “Word” of Jesus.  As a young adult I said no to such madness. 

Although I do not stockpile weapons and ammunition, I do believe in the right of self-defense.  I arm myself more for the wild boar attempting to claim rights to my land than I do my neighbor.  I am armed with a good rifle that requires less ammunition than the Bushmaster in bringing down wild boars.  In defense of your home, Joe Biden is correct in saying only a good shotgun is required.  Attempting to arm one’s self against the government is ridiculous if not outright madness.    

Rambo only works in the movies.  If there is fear of the government then, “We the People” need to discuss why we have such fear.  If you live in an area within the United State of America that is a “war zone” that requires military grade weaponry and local law enforcement are powerless against such forces, then it is time for state or federal action in your neighborhood.  However it is hard for local law enforcement to do their jobs when private citizens have a higher grade of weaponry.  I write hard for I know, with the current militarization of local police forces, it is not impossible.  In short there is no reason for private citizens to stockpile weapons or to live in fear in the United States of America.   Many times these weapons are used to kill the owner or family members or neighbors or friends.  We must require more responsibility of gun owners in the usage and storage of their weapons.  It is time for this “Christian” nation to live as did Christ, full faith.

White Boys Whine

Quick  and dirty   Star Trek  Discovery  is everything  I  thought  it would  be.  It is my hope the White  boys  chill the fuck out .  There will be a White male captain .   The Black  woman  will be of a lowered  status.  White  boys  are you appeased ?
My personal  view fuck White  boys who had their dicks in a vise  over women  of color  at the helm of a fictional  space vessel.  I shall watch  Star Trek  Discovery .  I shall pay the fee to CBS Access  with joy. If you wanted to watch OITNB you paid  Netflix . Overall  I look  forward  to the day a fictional  show  that features  women  of color  in prominent  positions  doesn't  freak out White males.  They were  so freaked  out  they compared  The Orville  to Star Trek  Discovery .  Guys chill out ,  future  happens .

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Work to do

I am typing a few quick thoughts today.  This thought is about White people being real.  When I returned to Mississippi in 2002, I had planned to only be here two years.  I didn't wish my kids to be in the oppressiveness of Mississippi too long.   I like other young Black people left this state before the ink was dry decades earlier.  When I returned in 2002, I was to learn of a silent change in the state, White folks waking-up. 

They are sadly still not the majority in 2017 but they are growing daily.  Trump has helped many White people face the mirror no longer able to deny the truth.  They are now facing the results of hate without the filter of Confederate glasses.  Mississippi is a wreck and holding on to a divisive symbol of hate, our flag.  Centuries of hate in the state has left the state destitute to the point even White people are leaving in large numbers.   Those now leaving are exporting hate to other states that have done well economically by ending policy of hate.
