Black gun stores are racist

Amid all of this talk about how white supremacy is the largest threat to America, we see this article. To date, we hear about how the gun culture is filled with whites who hate the fact that black people want guns. This article shows something different.

Blacks are arming themselves because they don’t like whites, if this story is to be believed. The black gun store owner showcased in the story had this to say:

“It was a terrifying, horrible experience, not just because I was buying the gun; it was because of how I was treated,” Solomon told NBC News. “I looked around the room and there was nothing but white men behind the counter. There wasn’t even a woman there.”

She claims to have been treated badly, but the only thing she can point to is that there were no women or blacks working there. The story then doubles down:

After watching report after report of police killings of Black people and her experience living in a predominantly pro-Trump neighborhood, she decided to buy a gun.

Still a third black woman had a gun buying experience:

The class of 20 new gun owners was predominantly Black — exactly what fellow student Erin Wood was looking for. “It’s just nice to have people that look like you in the group. It just makes you feel a little more comfortable to have the instructors be from your community,” Wood said, emphasizing that she sought out Redstone Firearms specifically because it is Black-owned.

Had this story been reversed, and a white gun store owner or gun buyer would have said they want to buy guns and take classes from people who look like them, Biden’s DHS would be dropping a JDAM on the store by now.

BLM in NC

A police shooting in Elizabeth City, NC has caused BLM to start rabble rousing in the area. One of my friends from my days in the Navy lives in the area and found the following note on his front door last night. How is this different from the Klan?

No police?

The founder of BLM says that we need to abolish prisons, jails, and police.

Would she still feel the same if someone were destroying or burglarizing one of the five houses she bought with the money that her followers donated?

Another sob story

Stories of people who are not paying their rent and getting evicted. We are supposed to feel sorry for the people who are living in apartments rent free, and have been doing so for more than a year.

There is Mariva Robinson, who was more than $5,000 behind in rent, and expected the landlord to waive everything and let her stay in the home (still without money to pay) as a part of the Orange County, Florida government giveaway. As a condition of accepting the government giveaway, the landlord has to agree to waive all claims against the tenant, as well as to other, unspecified conditions. In January, she owed $5,000 in back rent. After receiving no payments, the landlord finally evicted her in March, with her owing $12,700 in back rent and other expenses.

Then there is Lichelle Reynolds, who rented a two story home near Tampa for $1,835 a month. The home came with access to a community pool, tennis courts, and a clubhouse: all things that the landlord must pay the HOA for, whether the tenant uses them or not. In Florida, if the home owner doesn’t pay the HOA fees, the HOA can foreclose on the property.

At any rate, Ms. Reynolds tried to make partial payments. If a landlord accepts a partial payment, they can’t evict. So the landlord locked her out of the online payment system. I would do the same. Accepting even $50 on a rent of $1835 would forestall eviction and this would be a huge money loser for the landlord.

By the time January came around, Reynolds owed more than $10,000 in back rent. The landlord lost in court, so now she still lives there for free, and owes more than $15,000 in back rent. I’m sure she is heartbroken as she lays by the pool, watching her kids take tennis lessons.

The third sob story involves a man who claims he suffers from blackouts as a result of a Harley motorcycle accident and can’t remember the landlord calling him to ask for money. In this case, the landlord claims he is not subject to the CDC declaration. The article doesn’t say why, but I am guessing they will claim that it isn’t COVID that is preventing him from paying, it is the motorcycle accident. I agree.

The article states “it’s the big, deep-pocketed corporate landlords with property portfolios spanning multiple states that have been the most aggressive in filing eviction cases, even as they have thrived in the pandemic.” The reason for this is simple: the small mom and pop landlords can’t afford the attorneys and exorbitant costs of a legal eviction, while the deadbeat tenant gets a free lawyer. So, the small business owner is forced to eat the cost, and has to shoulder the burden that the government has placed upon the economy. The landlords have had their property taken to house people without compensation, an obvious violation of the takings clause, if we had an honest court system.

There are similar articles from places like Memphis, where a Federal judge has ruled that the Federal government has overstepped its constitutional bounds. There is also this article from Tampa, where tenants are complaining that landlords are refusing to sink any more money into maintaining property that isn’t producing any income.

I feel sorry for these people, I do. However, it is wrong to blame landlords for a situation that they are suffering under but did not cause. If the government is going to deny evictions, then the government should be the one paying for it. At the end of the day, the landlord owns the home, is paying insurance, maintenance, taxes, and HOA fees on the home, but the government tells them that they must let people live there for free.

Sure, they claim that the eviction order doesn’t erase the debt, but let’s be honest here- how exactly is a landlord supposed to collect a year’s worth of back rent? The only option is to evict a tenant to control the losses, knowing that you likely will not see the remainder of what they owe, and yes, future landlords need to know that this tenant is the type of tenant that will go a year without paying rent. Name another business where the business must give away its product for free, plus may not tell anyone else that the company stiffed them.

Imagine a law that said a consumer can buy a car, and then refuse to pay for it, but the car dealer can’t repossess the car, can’t report the default to the credit bureau, and must still provide warranty service if the car breaks down. THAT is what is happening.

Justification

The woman who was in the middle of being stabbed when the Columbus police officer rescued her by shooting and killing her attacker thanks the officer.

The press wants to know if it is worth it to kill one person to save another. Here is the live report:

Ghetto Lottery

You remember this story about the three “black teens” who were pulled over when police mistook their vehicle for one reported stolen? So the story goes that once the cops tried to pull over the vehicle, the driver attempted to run over the cops, shots were fired, then it turned out that two were killed, the survivor was a convicted felon, and three stolen guns and drugs were found in the car.

Yeah, well now the parents of the two dead ones have teamed up with race baiting ambulance chaser Benjamin Crump (of Trayvon Martin fame) and are suing the Brevard Sheriff for millions.

Unbiased

Just 135 days ago, the press, the Pentagon, and everyone else in Washington, DC called President Trump’s plan to withdraw the troops from Afghanistan “controversial” and said that “The Trump administration has thus far failed to explain how a troop withdrawal was in the national security interests of the United States to deny terrorists safe haven in Afghanistan, protect the United States homeland.”

Now Biden announces that the troops will be out on 9/11- and the MSM thinks it is the best idea ever.

Nope. No bias there.

AOC would rather we had a Soviet style government where the courts cannot overturn laws passed by the Politburo.

Of course she does.

Chauvin prediction

The jury will get the Chauvin trial today. I expect that deliberations won’t take long. We should have a verdict by tomorrow night. Here is my hot take:

Chauvin will go to jail. How he gets there, and what he is convicted of, will depend on a few of things.

The jury:

No matter what the evidence says, the jury hasn’t been in a news blackout. We KNOW that there are people who desperately wanted on that jury, and they made it. The jury also knows that eventually, they will be doxxed. For those reasons, I would have made sure that I was not picked for this jury. There is NO WAY I would put myself in this position, if I thought there was the remotest chance that I would be morally compelled to vote “not guilty” because I know what that would mean to my future. The people on that jury are not stupid, and they likely see things the same way. For that reason, I don’t see any verdict other than guilty being possible.

The Democrats:

Never let a crisis go to waste. The Democrats NEED Chauvin to be not guilty, at least of the most serious charges. What’s that, you say? Aren’t the Democrats the ones who WANT Chauvin convicted? No, they aren’t- what the Democrats need is an energized electorate who is angry enough to demand that things change. Mollifying them by tossing Chauvin in jail doesn’t do that. They need perceived ‘injustice’, they need rioting, they need anger. Now that doesn’t happen if Chauvin is convicted on the most serious charges. So mark this one down as “guilty, but of lesser charges” or perhaps even walking away on the state charges, but later tossed in jail on Federal charges like the cops in the Rodney King trials. That will produce rioting and allow more power to be seized on the heels of this ‘crisis’.

In the meantime, stay away from cities and stay away from large groups of black people, at least until things cool down a bit.
