I took a break, but it's back to concealed carry for me.

Figures, historically anti rights prohibitionists are a violent group in general.

You can't do that in md unless you are a personal friend of the local sheriff.

Don't come to Canada. There are literally dozens of cc permits in the country.

The good news is that I'm a resident of Virginia. The bad news is that I'm literally a stones throw away from MD. This nonsense could easily ooze over the Potomac River into my back yard. But I won't be a victim.

Come on people really?

I mean it's another twitter threat. If it was a group that you didn't dislike, you'd be complaining about censorship and the rest. You've gotta have the same bloody principles no matter what's being said....

This is one of those posts that indicates strongly there are no principles whatsoever by users of Voat. It's times like these that I "worry" about the chances of this place growing. :(

BlackLivesMatter is just stupid young blacks who hate white people.

Is it an actual organized group or just a bunch of people on twitter using a hashtag? I honestly haven't cared enough about them to look into it.

Making threats like this these days has to be taken seriously.

They do, they only do anything if you're white though. Blacks can post pictures of themselves online threatening to kill people posing with illegal guns in a threatening manor and get away with it. A white nerdy kid sarcasticly says hes going to shoot up a schooll and all of the sudden FBI is bursting through his door shoving a ar-15 down his mouth and gets 6 months of jail.

this article is about a black man being arrested for making threats so obviously your first statement is a fallacy, and if someone threatens to shoot up a school they deserve to have an ar-15 down their throat and 6 months in jail. doofus.

Here's my take on it. If a black man murders another black man after posting threats on Twitter, there will be no public outrage. There won't be any talk about how it was the police's or FBI's fault for not stopping it.

A white kid in a suburb makes a threat and you know law enforcement is going to face a lot questioning about why they didn't act on it if the kid actually follows through.

You know. If I was law enforcement, I'd just monitor the social media of people convicted of crimes and arrest them based on possession of a firearm. You get a warrant based off of the post, search their house, find the gun, then charge them with felon in possession.

Eh, the thing is, it's very hard in this country to legally make a threat, and it's more likely to lead to a lawsuit against the city (that will be lost by the city), than it is to lead to a criminal conviction unless the threat is both specific and imminent.

Brandenburg v. Ohio is still the law of the land.

If you don't have something like "imminent lawless action" being the standard you'd have people being arrested for "offensive" tweets like in the UK.

We have nearly daily slaughters of innocent people reported in the news. This is a trend that seems to be growing.

I remember when a website capitulating to a police request was literally a joke, as was the idea that cops would take anything seriously online, if they even went on at all. There were humorous threads on Usenet about how jack booted thugs might kick down your door if you said the wrong thing, and the entirety of the humor was how ridiculous and backwards that would be. Now it's all reality, and no one remembers that past Internet culture.

Lol and the political right has your best interest in mind with deregulation and tax breaks for the rich? They have just as many "cronies" as the left does.

This is a people problem, not a party problem.

All you have to do to be the face of BlackLivesMatter is to tweet something with that hashtag?

Yes. I'm not saying that's the way it should be, but that's often the way things get reported now; as if Twitter is a legitimate form of communication we should listen to. If you hand someone a controversy, they will run with it as far as they can, more often than not spreading misinformation as news.

It's also important to see that an overarching shift in civil discourse on these matters has occurred since BLM came about and that while this text may have been uniquely specific as far as location and time goes, it is not a radical outlier in terms of promoting or supporting violence, in particular of a racial variety.

Atleast you (US) have the concealed carry business. In the UK you get attacked and you're taught to be their bitch. No, honestly, BBC advice is pretty funny.
