Across the nation a few of the thugs have attacked people who were carrying a concealed weapon. It didn't end up well for the attackers. :-)

Leaningright, I think if the evidence warrants it, it needs to be prosecuted as a hate crime just as some jurisdictions are proving they have the courage to do so.

To me i dont care what the color of the person is who is doing the "knockout". If i see it happen to somebody or if it happens to me a huge can of whoop a _ _ is going to get opened up on that person (thug). Lets just call this what it is, it is "thuggery" performed by uneducated, unamerican, scumbag thugs. The leagl ramifications for this act need to be severe, like lock them up for a decade or so. This way they will have time to contemplate about what they have done.Or beat them to within an inch of their worthless scumbag life and maybe they will understand that. Either way works for me, black, white, yellow, brown,red, the color of the skin does not matter.

Real American- It is not a God given right to own a firearm. That right is given to you by the second amendment of the US Constitution, read that and then join the NRA to protect it from the Liberals who want to take it from you.

As opposed to the glee you take in calling the entire Republican base 'racist'? You've got a lot of nerve, Skippy.

I get the impression that Shaman is a shill for the SG to promote controversy in the comment sections. Or else he is simply a one agenda misinformed jerk. Either way, someone should hide his keyboard until he has something useful to say.

I wasn't suggesting a "right wing conspiracy", as much as I WAS observing such a plethora of right-wing GLEE over one-MORE thing, with-which to "tag" the entire Black-population. -Shaman

There you go again with that broad brush and your absolutes. Could you please be more specific and name those on the right that are happy about these disturbing acts of violence?

You mean...the State AG...or, the Black-one?? -Shaman

I mean the one that demands an investigation when it's a white on black crime.

Not to worry. You've always impressed me as someone who'd (typically) be vindicated.

Show some patience.

I have NO IDEA how prevalent this whole "knockout"-trip has become, but...you can BET (too-many) people will take the opportunity to expand those numbers, way-beyond what are (actually) occurring, to point-out what a "poor job" the President is doing.

Not entitled to guns, just free to own one if one chooses.

I think our country does a very good job of keep too much religion out of government, especially compared to some other countries.

NASCAR is exciting and it provides jobs for thousands.

A sense of entitlement is usually ascribed to those who envy successful individuals and who vote to tax and redistribute the fruits of others' labor.
