white people can walk around with assault rifles in a fucking public store but the moment they see a poc’s skin they clutch their purses or lock their car doors

Because people head off to Target with AK47s around their necks right? Lol. This site never fails to amaze me.

These are not staged. These are real instances of arms rights “advocates”, predominantly in Open Carry Groups, protesting gun regulation laws and asserting their right to bear arms by carrying assault rifles in public places. It’s been all over the news. There are Daily Show segments about it. They held Open Carry “protests” in my city in public malls and restaurants filled with families with small children or just people who did not want to walk into a place to eat or shop and see a bunch of huge guns.

Educate yourself and read news beyond what is on your Tumblr dash.

What really burns me up about this issue is that, as the OP says, these same types of people will follow an unarmed, unassuming black person around in a store because they’re afraid of stealing, get nervous and tense up if they see a group of browned skinned young men hanging around a block, or snarl about immigrants coming into a country that was established by and built on the backs of immigrants. And I guaran-damn-tee you if a group of African American men walked into a Jack in the Box with assault guns, white people would flip shit.
