The progressive control of the educational system has tried to encourage self esteem with the sacrifice of exceptionalism. Their achievement has been to encourage mediocrity. In this climate the qualities that made this country great are disappearing. This country is doomed to fail unless we change the educational system that progressives have been trying to destroy for decades. Unfortunately the time to correct the deficiencies is very short.
    There is no one to blame but ourselves. We make our own decisions. It wasn't ignorance, it was apathy. Until the People can change, until the People can choose to be better, nothing will be better. What made this country great is gone all ready. What are we, as individuals, going to do to change our own lives?

    Considering all the wacko's in Calif, I don't know if that isn't a really bad thing to do, I know I lived there for over 11 years and they are really far left minded.

    The open carry ban was implemented to prevent minorities from open carrying firearms for protection.

    During the 1960s, only white people could get conceal carry permits. So, minorities were left with open carry. The white majority eventually got tired/scared of seeing minorities carrying firearms, so they banned the open carry of loaded firearms in public places.


    CA's (concealed & open) carry laws were created by racisim and are kept alive by elitism.

    Most gun control laws were a result of Jim Crow. They started right after the civil war as a way to deny Blacks the right to defend themselves.

    Are you trying to tell me that the open carry ban only allowed whites to open carry? I think not, stop calling everything that doesn't seem quite right as rasisim, if it effects everybody, you can't call it rasisim, don't fan the fires where it isn't there.
