    Yes, but the problem now is they will be shamed etc even though they are doing exactly what they are supposedly fighting for.

    These losers have no such worry since they are probably unemployed to begin with.

    Mr D
    Isn't a gated community private property?

    When will they release the body cam footage of the Floyd arrest? I'd like to see what triggered this mess, not just how it ended.

    The protesters broke through a private wrought iron gate to get to a private street. Some protestors went into their yard and threatened to burn down their house. I’d say it was 2-3 bad apples that were the problem.

    There were multiple signs saying no trespassing and an iron gate was locked.

    There is no way this was 2-3 bad apples. This was mob violence that was stopped by private property owners exercising their God given right to protect themselves.

    Looked to be many more than 2-3. I would not have taunted them back. Sitting on the porch would have done the trick. No doubt the owners will be prosecuted regardless if they broke the law or not.

    At the 2020 halfway point, gun sales have already surpassed sales in any full year from 1999 to 2011

    And those are just the officially tracked sales. Probably double that number if you include private sales (including felon to felon transactions).

    I would bet the same for retail liquor. I think we have an industry expert on this. I know my local liquor store has been very, very busy during the shutdown.

    Ammunition should be at a record level too.

    My middle son (a Longhorn) is a gunsmith and has his FFL. He is absolutely overwhelmed by the volume of his business now. He is a certified Sig technician and has more work than he can handle. Looks like folks are fearful of the Democrats winning in November, thus, they're buying while they can.

    It has been interesting to see the opportunities present themselves. I can tell you a few more more. Strikes me as so American.
    (1) Electrical generators for the home. No one can afford to have their power go down during the day anymore. I have been taking bids since May. Trying to find the right machine (its Kohler). They are end of August installation now, at best.
    One saleswoman told me she attended a HOA/neighborhood meeting, got nearly 50 orders from that one meeting.
    (2) Bike Shops. The closest one to me has just quit taking in any repair or service work. They spend all their time selling new bikes (higher profit margin). He says they cannot keep them in the shop.
    (3) Whatever you call those sign-in-the-yard businesses. Those are everywhere now

    My bike shop is only repairing bikes for people who purchased from them. Otherwise they were getting overwhelmed with repair orders. They have told me this is the best time they have ever seen to sell used bikes on FB marketplace, etc.

    My Guilt?

    What is it that I am?
    An accumulation of history?
    Mankind's baby?
    Or the DNA of my parents
    And the experience of my soul?

    Am I evil reincarnate
    Or the love of Christ?
    Is the fire of those who suffer
    My inherited debt to pay
    For those the past will not console?

    In the changing of the guard
    The footsteps march loudly
    For soon they will take their place
    No matter my slumber or arousal
    Will I fracture or remain whole?

    In the beginning there was darkness
    And now the light of truth burns
    But in whose heart does it live
    Is it Pilate who asked what
    Or Peter and the kiss he stole?

    Ironic that the protests where guns are front and center are peaceful but the ones who supposedly protesting violence are violent themselves.

    At what point do we start fighting back? I feel the most sadness for Black Americans. They are in the middle of this war and 99% of them don't want a war just a voice. Yet they follow criminal black leaders who don't care one bit about them they just care about lining their pockets with Democrat money.

    However, more and more I am seeing on social media black men and women stand up and say since MLK what has the Democrats done? What has the black leaders done? They have the most dangerous neighborhoods, the highest levels of abortion, and the most young men in jails. Yet Democrats have controlled them for so long and done nothing to fix these problems.

    More and more I now understand why. The Democrat party has never changed from their racist ways, they convinced blacks that Republicans are the racist in order to continue their genocide of the Black Man in this country while pointing the finger at the other side. Their local governments control the police and at the same time call the police racist. Well the police only carry out the orders of their Democrat leaders.

    Time for Black America to wake up fully and realize who their real enemy is.

    When 90+% vote Democrat year after year, blacks are totally responsible for the coming war.

    This is the socialist & communist way. Keep all the money, keep everyone down and blame others. I have friends who came from Cuba on the freedom flights. The entire nation is told it's Americas fault they are starving.

    We have failed our children, we have not taught them their history and who they are.
