The claim "We oppose this law because it allows the police authorities to get their foot in the door of Black people's lives and causes us to be arrested on a disproportionate basis" is one of the most selectively applied justifications that are on record.
In cities like DC and Philly the police authorities practice aggressive frisking policies against Black males as they work to disarm them in the name of violence prevention.
When it comes to the US Constitution the Second Amendment is the one spot of ink that certain individuals are willing to look the other way on.
In the case of this Black male on the bus who was seen with a concealed weapon - the police did not know that he was a felon prior to their confrontation with him.
I am a Black male who also has a Georgia fire arms concealed carry permit. I am happy that the law provides for this exception. I carry my little .32 cal on my person whenever I go into the city.
When it comes to the "felon that is Black" we will hear about how society oppresses him in regards to employment opportunity and voting. In the news clip shown this one felon has now been banned from the local public transportation system for carrying a weapon that he was not allowed to carry as a felon.
I seriously doubt that anyone will come to his defense regarding his RIGHT to access public transportation if he is to maintain gainful employment and avoid returning to criminal activities.
Instead he is set on the course of harassment by the police with a possible "Oscar Grant"-type accident as the police pull out their service weapons while they struggle with him on the ground.
