Gunless: Disarmament in the Hood


Recent media accounts have reported and documented that during the Obama presidency unlike any other modern day presidency the gun sales in our nation have been brisk with sales of guns in the millions.. The overwhelming purchasers of these guns have been white males. The proliferation of guns in our society has been stunning and staggering . America even before the election of it's first person of color was and remains the number #1 Arms Merchant on the planet. Our arms industry is the greatest manufacturer in the world when it comes to armaments and weapons of destruction. The gun lobbies from the NRA to those who shill to supply the Defense Department is unparalleled and alarming. There is right now in the country a frenzy surrounding guns it stings the air with fear and in many venues a giddy aroma.





America is where democracy is exported often at the barrel of a gun. Our  Department of Defense budget comes close to a trillion dollars a year every year. Our society is a culture where violence is worshipped and exported . In America the gun is worshipped as a sacred artifact. The fervor for guns is beyond any sense of reason and borders on insanity. Gun violence not only destroys lives but the health costs of gun violence is in the billions. The reality of suicides and gun mishaps in the homes of families is tragic and senseless.





It is critical that as a nation and culture we must take a life altering posture and position towards the possession and ownership of guns especially in communities of color where the carnage of guns is creating killing fields. Some have even uttered the words that in many Black venues folks are engaged in a self destructive community inflicted ethic cleansing . Into this gun abyss the staff of PLANE IDEAS has endorsed the total confiscation of all guns. We support government mandated gun confiscation ASAP.





For Black folks in many venues across the country we need to have a calibrated examination and analysis of gun confiscation. What is more lethal for the Black community is not just Black gun ownership  but the fact that the  majority of guns are owned by the majority population( read Whites).



We have to ask as a change agents which is safer and more secure for us as a people and a community. Clearly the loss of life at the hand of guns owned by the majority against Blacks and progressives is greater than the loss of life by Blacks against Blacks. Gun confiscation means a longer mortality  in the face of gun violence. Our communities are more secure and safe from gun violence with the absence of guns than the ownership and possession of guns in our homes and in the community .





Arguments that if Blacks give up guns it makes us vulnerable to the majority Yet the fact remains unless there is a race war  guns overwhelmingly owned by Black folks in our communities is more dangerous and lethal right now!





We are safer as a community when NO ONE OWNS A GUN! Gun Confiscation saves lives in both normal and crisis situations in our country even if the majority population wants to start a race riot without guns they cannot kill in with the same degree and scope even in a martial law race war scenario. Millions of whites with no guns is safer than the converse for everyone including Black folks!





It is critical that the Black Community in America come to the reality that the proliferation of gun sales simply is not in our best interest and puts all of us at risk! Even the raw notion of the government taking away and confiscating all guns is still a more secure and safer proposition than the presence of millions of guns in a troubled and uncertain post industrial racial era.




Gun Confiscation is the best practice and policy in the new  post industrial era of America. We must disarm our nation and our communities. We must be advocates for the sanctity of life in America in all communities.



Gun Less is the way to go and the mantra of America. Disarmament Now!!

Anyone aware that the first gun laws were passed by Blue Dog Democrats to keep Blacks from owning guns after the Civil War?

The author is projecting his own fears onto others (see Hoplophobia).

I have a bbunch of guns. I carry one daily. I think you sir are an uninformed douchebag that bases his opinion on hyperbole rather than fact. You could be in the same room with me right now, while Im carrying my pistol, and even though I think you are a pompous ass, I wouldnt kill you. Just because you dont think you have that kind of self control, dont project you lack of willpower to others.

We are safer as a world when no country has a nuclear weapon. Has any nuclear power unilaterally disarmed? Why would I, leaving the criminals armed? Why would an elderly widow? Why would a single woman with a violent ex? Why would the largest arms merchant on the planet ask me to? I think I'll pass, but if you feel so strongly about it please feel free to volunteer to lead a gun grabbing squad. Good luck.

You're got to recognise the willful ignorance of people who would be well served in the assurance of their lives' security with the ability to be made equal to more physically powerful opponents by the use of a simple tool.

Yet it's the simple tool they fear; and, unwilling restrain their opinions to themselves...they press to enforce their fears on the rest of us, with measures that culminate in the use of force against people different from gun banners.

Many people won't just hand over their private property because you say so, or because the government legislates for it. Most mass registration and ban efforts have been met with peaceful mass non-compliance, like the recently repealed registry in Canada.

The real question is whether anti-rights groups will violently try to confiscate the guns of innnocent people.

Have you thought for a moment that the War on Drugs may bare the lions share of blame for the "killing fields" of these ethnically diverse, and typically poor inner city communities?

A gun does not create desire to kill. However, money, turf, rep, and control in a criminal marketplace certainly do.

How about addressing the real issues involved. Gangs,drugs,and a lax legal system. Since you obviously don't respect my Second Amendment rights and think they should be banned in order to promote your socialist utopia, how about restricting your First Amendment rights? You know by imposing the following: background check, some mandatory training,liscencing, permits,number of words you're allowed to use, locks on your keyboard,outlawing fast processors on computers, you know it as common sense regulation. Molon Labe.

I can be rest assured that your life and self-proclaimed "influences" will never make it past your little online blog. If having a gun means I'm going to kill.....then I have failed all these years. Your desire for a perfect Socialist Utopia won't end the way you think. What I find awesomely hypocritical of people like you is how you "occupy" places and protest against the government in foreign lands, yet the next minute you wish to empower the government to have full control of our lives. Someone like you is never consistent in their beliefs. You jump from stance to stance, contradicting yourself each time.

Maybe you could do yourself a favor and grow up. Stop with the nearsightedness and start taking a step back to see the entire picture. Crying out based on emotion and irrational fear will never end well. I am sure that anybody who makes the statement, "The government should start confiscating _______." has clearly not put any thought into their statement. You sit there and speak about equal protection under law, equal and individual rights for all, but then wish to infringe upon the rights of a group of people merely because you perceive them as a single gender and race (which is amazingly false).

Work on getting some consistency and then we might be able to take you seriously.

PS: I fully expect you to delete this comment because I know your belief in an individual's right of speech only extends to those who share your opinions. Again, hypocrisy (but I hope to see you prove me wrong).

"My disarmament idea is going viral...Awesome to be able to save a life and influence the world :-)"

You CANNOT be serious! You really are a narcissist, aren't you. First of all, that is HARDLY your idea. Secondly, you have saved NO lives by posting in your little online blog. Lastly, you have influenced nobody because again, this idea has been harped by hundreds of ignorants before you.

More people will be killed by "your disarmament idea" (LOL I still can't believe you think you thought of that) than are currently dieing from gun violence (it's a fact).

Why don't you ask the people in Mexico how safe they are without any guns (yes, they're banned there). Now, they are chopping each others heads off and the cartels still have fully automatic machine guns coming up from Guatemala. Since Australia confiscated guns years ago, their violent crime rate has risen 300%. Our population is MUCH GREATER than that of the UK, yet the UK has the highest murder rates in the EU and their rates rival ours. "But their gun deaths are low" -- Yea I guess it's ok that per capita they have more murders per every 100 people than we do...as long as they're being stabbed to death and not shot, right? My other favorite reference is Japan. I lived there for 2 years. If you want to live there, go right ahead (I actually loved it there). Because in Japan, the police can detain you and hold you in jail for 1 month without ever charging you with any crime. On top of that, their lack of guns hasn't stopped gun murders.

There is not one example in the world that shows a benefit to total disarmament. Conversely, the majority of countries are an example of why it's a mistake.

Come and take them, chump change.

You won't, of course, because you're a coward. You'll expect a bunch of burly men with guns in their hands and helmets on their heads to step up and do it for you, to steal the belongings of your countrymen at gunpoint.

So, when non-white criminals kill innocent bystanders and other non-white criminals in the inner cities, you blame rural white gun owners?

When insane people are able to commit atrocities because of a non-existent mental healthcare system, you blame sane people that willingly subject themselves to background checks?

I don't expect you to change your views any time soon, seeing as how concepts like personal accountability and responsibility are alien to you. As a resident of New York State, I'm all too familiar with your ilk, so I'll just leave you with this to remember:

You reap what you sow.

See you at the breadlines, comrade.

So I see that you are forming opinions and favor legislature restricting the nation's Bill of Rights based on the skin color of who showed up for the protest.

Sure, that seems completely logical and rational if you ask me. Why does it matter what the skin color is of the law abiding citizens choosing to exercise one of the rights guaranteed to them in the constitution. And if those who were opposed to your fascist views had been more diverse, it would have been completely acceptable and you would change your opinion.

Basically, we shouldn't be able to own guns because we are white is what it boils down to. I am not sure what you are so scared of to be honest. I mean if we are going to play the race card I could say, "well we need the 2nd amendment to protect ourselves from black people since they make up the vast majority of violent felons". But that would be totally illogical and I since we are not ignorant, hate mongers we would never do that.

The problem lies in that one side is merely standing up for a right we already have and obey to the law. The other side, says "that's not good enough. You need to be punished for the delusional, psychopathic actions of 0.001% of the population, just because I said so".

I guess I blame our society for allowing everyone to have these delusions of grandeur and extreme sense of self entitlement. That so many people think it is totally acceptable to force their extremist views on to their fellow citizens is sickening. And honestly, you guys are single handedly dismantling the very fabric this country was founded upon. I hate to break it to you comrade, but just because you tell me to do something, doesn't mean I or millions of other people will do it. If you want to push your hatred and extremist agenda on to a group of people, you picked the wrong ones.

I will never be a subject to the authoritarian rule of another human being. Actions have consequences and just because you have some delusional idea that you are better than we are and thus have a right to instill your twisted, Anti-American agenda upon us is an massive miscalculation on your part. And then to publish an article like this, where you back up your arguments with the race card, just further affirms your psychotic and mentally deficient state of mind. You honestly need to get help sir.

Thrasher,

I'd like to see you address some of the comments in here. Or is that not possible because you are loud when you think you are unchallenged, and quiet when hit with logic and call outs about your racist motivation.

I'm a white male. Author is 100%right, white Americans ARE arming themselves. All my friends are buying guns and ammo for ourselves, our children, and our neighbors. Why are we? Because we see the crime, violence, and decay of the inner city spilling out across this country. We see what happened in S. Africa and Rhodesia. We are not stupid. The multicultural utopia is a lie and a farce.

I'm so sick of what has happened to males in American society. How in the world can a country as great as American produce such limp-wrested, emasculated, wet noodles as the author of this article? It used to be that if a guy was a wimp like this author, he hid it because he was ashamed. Now, we have these narcissistic hermaphrodites polluting the world with their inherently, fundamentally unsound arguments, based on an estrogen-fueled, emotionally charged, intellectually bankrupt world view. God help us if this is the kind of people our country is now producing to lead us into the future. Views like the ones in this article are inherently unamerican and should be offensive to all Americans.

It always amazes me how cowards who hide behind an alias like to get so anal and angry etc. Other than the energy and twisted emotion on a blog clearly my theme has create a plausible possibility .

With regard to 2nd Amendment issues just like the 5th Amendment people can waive their rights no one is putting a gun to their head( don't excuse the pun).

Fact remains my construct is threshold and alters the arc of the gun debate in the country. No guns no guns deaths by suicide or homocide. No gun wounds, assaults with guns, domestic abuse with guns, waste of money purchasing guns,yada, yada, yada . ...

Disarmament the future is now!

Freedom is obviously wasted on you. Your ancestors who yearned for it would be appalled to see your sorry ass crawling back into servitude as fast as you can.
As others here have said, if you want to take away our guns, you'd better be ready to pick up your own and take your chances: Unlike you servile fucks, we're not in the mood to take orders from a loudmouthed psuedo-intellectual.

Those willing to give up liberty for security deserve neither and will lose both.


I would rather there be a chance that I could be a victim of gun violence, as long as I have the opportunity to defend myself with a firearm, than to disarm everybody on the planet. However, I will turn in all of my firearms as soon as the criminals and government turn in theirs.

It's unbelievable how much you Liberals want the government to control your lives. You might as well volunteer to go live in a government camp.

I don't have an account to sign in with my real name. My name is Mike Donaldson. Does this no longer make me a coward, simply because I posted my name? Interesting.....

The only coward here is you, hiding behind your computer, unwilling to do anything other than to cry online for rights violations.

You will NEVER have the fortitude to be point man on an entry team, going through the front door to confiscate a family's firearms. You will gutlessly sit on your computer, criticize anyone who you don't agree with, and wish harm unto those who don't believe in what you believe in. That's how Leftists work. "Everyone of all colors should have equal rights." -- "Take away the rights of gun owners because they're all White men."

You're a hypocrite with absolutely NO principles. As long as you want to take away the rights of some, while simultaneously crying for equal rights for all, you will always be anti rights. Your inconsistencies are amazing. But what's even more mind blowing is how you can't even recognize your hypocrisy.

You are just as unevolved and elitist as the Democrats who started the KKK and wanted gun confiscations from free Black slaves, while that "devil" NRA was fighting for Blacks' gun rights, along with helping them learn to shoot to defend themselves.

Once you start practicing what you preach, people might begin to actually take you seriously. Until then, you are a joke who doesn't know if they are pro equal rights or anti rights.

I'm sure you have issues with Obama's use of the Drones and how we shouldn't be in the ME (we shouldn't). But, you are also the same person who wants the US government to wage war against Americans who don't share your beliefs in turning themselves into helpless victims (cattle).

My position is a posture which values th essence of life.

Disarmament can create a new culture in America. A culture which allows for civility and humanity to return to our streets, work places, schools and ur homes.

We need a new ERA of Life in America ..My proposal is a bridge to that ERA.
