Jonesboro saw one more exercise of defensive force before the Klan was finally convinced that they could not intimidate the black community. When Deacon Elmo Jacobs was driving a carload of white civil rights workers, they were fired upon and took a load of buckshot in the door of Jacobs' car. Jacobs returned fire and the Klan attack ended immediately -- and for good.

In Bogalusa, LA, Hill found that the police made no attempt to stop the attacks and in fact took pains to arrest blacks who had armed themselves in self defense. In other words, gun control was simply a tool of people control and had nothing to do with fighting crime. Had crime control been the concern, plenty of opportunities had come and gone to arrest the Klan.

FBI agent Frank Hicks warned Bogalusa blacks that any self-defense shooting by a black -- of a white -- would result in an arrest for murder. He did not explain where the FBI had any legal or constitutional authority for such a move, but the Deacons were not interested in a scholarly debate. They simply told Hicks that self defense is a constitutional right. Hicks got the message.

A lethal moment in Bogalusa shocked the Klan into the realization that blacks were no longer chattel punching bags. During a 1965 summer desegregation demonstration, white hecklers turned violent and threw a brick which struck Hattie Mae Hill. The white mob surrounded the car the Deacons were using to attempt an evacuation of the terrified girl.

As the mob threatened to break into the car, Deacon Henry Austin shouted that he had a gun. Then he fired a warning shot from his .38 into the air. The mob kept closing in. Austin then fired almost point blank into the chest of Alton Crowe who was in the front of the mob. While Crowe survived, the fun of beating up on blacks died that afternoon in Bogalusa.

All the white liberals in the north and their black allies, with all their clucking that defensive violence would only provoke more violence, had failed to get the feds to enforce their civil rights laws. Henry Austin and the Deacons succeeded. After all, if the police and the National Guard had not been mobilized, there might have been harm to Klansmen.

The battle raged for another year or so, but the Jonesboro and Bogalusa resistance efforts proved to be the turning point. Klan meetings became more likely to involve admiration of a colleague's tooth than to plot a terrorist act that might get Klansmen killed. THIS IS WHY THE PARTY OF THE KLAN BACKED UP OK BLACK PEOPLE DEMS DO NOT LIKE YOU

How would he be removed from office? If acting under the auspices of the PATRIOT Act what would be the charge?
"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

That door is wide enough for a big truck. The House would easily vote impeachment. The Senate would likely not convict.

Violation of the Second Amendment would be a starter.

Does the Patriot Act specifically grant the power to confiscate all guns from US citizens?

That is what liberals really believe, good grief!!!
Republicans tried to compromise going up as far as taxing those who make more than $600,000 or $800,000 I believe. Some are assuming the actual number will be somewhere in the middle.

The problem seems to be that everytime Republicans try to compromise and agrees to meet the president halfway, the president ups the stakes.

How can you compromise with someone who keeps doing that?

The fact is, he doesn't want to.

Obama already moving gun control to the back burner, putting Biden in charge:

WASHINGTON – President Obama will tap Vice President Biden to lead an administration-wide effort looking at gun control and other measures in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting last week.

You said Byrd was lynching blacks.
Put up or shut up.
If you belong to a violent gang and don't actually commit the violence but know it's happening, are you innocent?

People who are present during a violent act receive the same sentence as those who committed it.

They were a part of it and didn't try and stop it.

Did Byrd try and stop the lynching? Or even condemn it?
