As the young people say "Let's flip the script" on the NRA, gun control and the Second Amendment

Call me cynical but I firmly believe we would have sensible gun control legislation faster than  a New York minute if black folks were printing guns, arming up under the Second Amendment  ,and the NRA was a predominately black/brown organization.

Let me flip the script then tell me if you agree.

Flipped Script #1

Radio Host andrenown social activist   Joe Madison, aka The Black Eagle   is hoping to get 1,000 black people to march on Washington on July 4 — armed with loaded rifles. The plan, launched with a Facebook group today, is to gather on the Virginia side of the Potomac, where gun laws are lax, and then march across the bridge with loaded rifles slung over their shoulders into the District, where openly carrying weapons is generally prohibited.
“This will be a non-violent event,” the Facebook group warns, “unless the government chooses to make it violent.” Already, over 200 people have said they’ll attend the march.

Flipped script #2

 The Black Panther Party couldn't have picked a friendlier place to refresh the troops. More than 70,000 people are expected to attend the three-day "Stand and Fight"-themed event, which includes a gun trade show, political rally and strategy meeting.

Flipped script #3

Gun Control:  No easy solution.... but can we at least talk about it?
 How many more innocent children and civilians will we have to bury before the gun nuts and their acolytes recognize that the tide of public opinion isn’t on their side? They can either participate in the discussion…or they may wake up to discover that the issue has been decided for them without their input.
What Bob Cesca said:
 Everyone’s afraid to appear too “extreme” when discussing gun control legislation. No one wants to offend the gun people. But extremism never stopped the NRA and the utter wackadoodles and firearm fetishists lurking in plain view — their American flag shirts and ridiculous bumper stickers flaunting their “right” to buy and keep as many guns as they can afford, and to use them in a wide variety of inexcusably psychotic ways.
