It is no accident that the two seminal Second Amendment cases of our age were led by Black plaintiffs. The concerns of people like Shelly Parker and Otis McDonald, have long driven the robust Black tradition of arms. The benefit of arms in the hands of good people like this, for example reductions in hot burglaries and a general disincentive to criminals, are arguably more important in Black neighborhoods than elsewhere. Moreover the fundamental justification for self-defense – the structural limits on the state’s ability to interdict imminent threats – is more pervasive in Black communities than in other places. Police response is slower. Personal threats are more common. Public resources are spread more thinly.
The only possible foundation for comments like Whitlock’s is the erroneous assumption that personal firearms render no benefits. That is demonstrably false as summarized in my previous post and illustrated extensively in my other work. And there is no indication that the benefits of firearms ownership and use discriminate on the basis of race.
Finally, one wonders whether Whitlock even appreciates that the history of supply-side gun control in America is rooted in racism. As described in detail in my book Firearms law and the Second Amendment, the first generation of supply-side gun controls were explicitly racist. Ironically, these laws worked hand-in-hand with oppressive state regimes and terrorist organizations like the KKK. On this score Whitlock’s invocation of the KKK is ironic and perverse.
By invoking the specter of racism, Whitlock appropriates and exploits a public good that has been paid for in the sweat and blood of countless Black folk both here and gone. His cavalier deployment of this resource degrades those people and their sacrifice. Whitlock makes hay by presuming to speak for Black people as a group. Through the grossest invective he smears those who would disagree with him. I have to believe that he does not realize that this includes millions of lawful Black gun owners who reject the demonstrably flawed approach of relying on the state for their personal security.
Whitlock seems pervasively ignorant of the basic moving parts of the gun issue and yet his “analysis” has been elevated in our conversation as if it constitutes a serious policy critique. It is an indictment of our culture and bodes ill for the Republic, that this is the nature of our public debates.

Gov. Bob McDonnell Really Is Kind of a Liar

I’m generally unmoved by the kind of polemical thunder Erick Erickson unleashed on Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell:

Bob McDonnell is a perfect example of the worst kind of Republican. He has no principles that he won’t sell out if he thinks the situation demands it. He is interested in the praise of liberal editorial pages for his balanced leadership, which is really just selling out the people who got him elected. His policy legacy will now be trading higher taxes for a massive entitlement expansion. How pathetic.

That’s how Erickson ended his broadside.

He began it by calling McDonnell a “liar.”

And he’s got a point.

McDonnell’s problems with conservatives (including the Republican lieutenant governor who hopes to succeed him) are twofold. He is on the brink of signing a massive transportation bill that could, when fully implemented, raise taxes on Virginians by $6.1 billion over the next five years, according to Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform. And he issued a statement in support of a bicameral commission on reforming Medicaid, which Erickson predicts “will be nothing but a speed bump towards expanding the program.”(Jennifer Rubin, with characteristic credulity, said “the state can be assured Medicaid isn’t expanding anytime soon.” I’d say the smart money is with Erickson in this case.)

Against the backdrop of the fractious fiscal situation across the Potomac River, McDonnell’s transportation deal might appear to be the work of a sane, well-functioning government. Yet the fact is that McDonnell didn’t merely promise not to raise taxes in a general George H.W. Bush sense—although he did that, too. McDonnell explicitly promised not to sign a transportation bill that had new revenue.

What we’ve got here is a granular, issue-specific about-face.

I would add, as an aside, that state politicians with national aspirations should avoid taking Norquist-like pledges that any politician of consequence in this fiscal environment will need to wriggle out of. But in McDonnell’s case, that horse left the barn four years ago.

Conservatives like Erickson are right to be pissed.

Of course you don't understand it Carol because you're an idiot. So why was he "bad news" stupid? Because he wasn't the same color as you and had a funny name? Since he's taken office we've had steady private sector job growth a robust stock market and corporate profits are at an all time high. An auto industry that was on the verge of bankruptcy is once again making profits. Home sales are on the rise and it's once again a seller's market. Everything is going in the right direction despite the GOP's blatant attempts at crashing the economy.
What is the unemployment rate right now? How long has it been above 7.5%?

Incomes dropped the most in 20 years last quarter. So what's "going in the right direction"?

We've added OVER SIX TRILLION TO THE NATIONAL DEBT since Lord Obama was annointed. Is that a good thing?

When GWBush was running for a second term, there was a brief spell when unemployment was 6.3%. What did you leftists call it? "The worst economy since the Great Depression"?

When GWBush was president the price of a gallon of gas went above $4, what did your Princess Pelosi say? So why is it not a concern now that we've had it over $3/gallon for MORE THAN THREE YEARS?

I don't Carol is the clueless one.

Redhawk has 3,000 homes. The population of Temecula is in excess of 100,000.

"real dumb"
It's Sunday. Calm down, don't let your crap get so hot. Hey "real dumb" I commented not at all on how many budgets that president nobama presented, I did comment they were so inane he could not get a single vote to support the crap he offered. The subject was budgets, I did not change the topic I simply said the loser occupying the white house has nary a clue. In your dim world president nobama offered budgets in the mind of the sane those who actually thing he presented fantasy.
The question in my mind is when is the president going to make a decision on the pipeline. Two questions actually, who is going to piss off?
- The unions by not okaying the pipe line and the thousands of high paying jobs it would provide, or
- The eco idiots who piss and moan.
Should be interesting.

Funny stuff. You had a f*cking fit & accused me of changing the subject when I spoke of budgets.

So GFY, loser.

How many budgets has Obama submitted? A simple question you keep avoiding.

While you are at it, how any budgets did Bush submit that were voted on upon receipt by Congress & passed?

How about not taxing corporate foreign profits until the money is brought back into the US.

Costing us tax money & giving a break for foreign investment.

How about oil subsidies.

How about the investment income loophole.
