    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I guess I will have to dissent on some of the comments made so far.

    I wasn't there. I don't know what happened.
    I HAVE lived in the DEEP South, and racism exists, even among members of the LE community.

    Now, is that what is happening here? I have no idea. Did someone plant the gun, by moving it from the chair where it was to beside the body of the 73 year old man? I have no idea.

    But, I have seen enough to know that it is POSSIBLE that there is more to this than simply man with a gun shot by police.

    My opinion of Al Sharpton? Shoot him and bring the other man back, IMO. But, there may be something to this-racism exists in parts of our world. We cannot deny that fact. It isn't as pervasive as some think, nor is it extinct as some would claim.

    My thoughts also.
