Nor should you be.
Gun rights are being eroded across the nation, almost exclusively tied to demographic change and the Democrat hegemony - democracy in action - that accompanies such a loss of whiteness.
Pretty soon, the National Rifle Association (NRA) will be a bunch of elderly white males - cheering on their sufficiently black avatar, Colion Noir - trying to hold forth some reverence to the U.S. Constitution in a handful of states.

Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Indiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Montana, North Dakota, Idaho, Utah... that's about it.
Demographic changes in North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Texas (but... but... we're Texas you say?!? Go spend an hour in Houston and Dallas and tell me if you hear anyone speaking English, bub), Minnesota, and virtually every other state will go the route of California, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey and New York.
The good people at the NRA won't dare mention demographics, believing the next generation of black people or recent invaders (illegal immigrants) will provide sufficient tax-deductible donations to keep the organization afloat in one of the few remaining states not hostile to the 2nd Amendment.
As long as the NRA can produce slick videos showcasing the urban gun enthusiasts Colion Noir, the 2nd Amendment will be safe!
That's not it all.
Demographics is destiny.
Though the June 2014 issue of the NRA's flagship magazine, America's 1st Freedom, offers a cover-story on a man many in the overwhelmingly white male funded gun-rights organization would gladly make the 21st Century version of Charlton Heston: Detroit Police Chief James Craig. [Craig stands by 2nd Amendment support in wake of NRA magazine cover story,The Detroit News, 5-19-14]:
Police Chief James Craig on Monday reiterated his support for the Second Amendment in the wake of a National Rifle Association magazine cover story that featured the chief advocating for gun rights.
During a one-on-one interview with The Detroit News, and a press conference outside police headquarters later Monday, Craig said he not only supports the right to bear arms, but Michigan’s Open Carry law, which allows licensed gun owners to carry their firearms in non-restricted areas, as long as they’re not concealed.
“It’s the law, and I support the law,” he said. “The Second Amendment was written more than 200 years ago. It’s not a James Craig law. “
“We’ve heard instances of accidental discharges; or guns getting into the hands of children,” Craig said. “That’s terrible. But we’re talking about law-abiding, responsible citizens. ‘Responsible’ is the key word here.”
Community activist Ron Scott issued a press release Monday criticizing the NRA article.
“In a time when the citizens of Detroit are trying to find their way out of the current cycle of violence, this is not the time for the Department to use the Chief's public persona to unify with the political posture of the National Rifle Association,” Scott said. “This is a public safety and community issue, not simply a Second Amendment issue.”
Craig said he doesn’t understand why anyone would have a problem with a police chief saying he supports the Constitution.
“I’m pro-life,” he said. “I’m pro-safety. I support law-abiding citizens’ right to protect themselves against imminent danger.”
Responding to reports that the NRA is considering holding its annual convention in Detroit, Craig said: “I don’t see a problem with that. Organizations that hold conventions in Detroit help the economy.”
Craig’s stance on guns, unusual for big-city police chiefs, made national news after he told The Detroit News in January that responsible gun owners could deter crime.
Craig, in a candid question-and-answer session for the NRA magazine America’s 1st Freedom insists he is not responsible for a rash of at least eight incidents in which residents have shot home intruders since January. He said self-defense shootings “actually started before I arrived here.”
“I believe responsible, good Americans have a right to protect themselves from an immediate threat to their life or to the life of another,” Craig says in the June web article titled “A Show of Courage in Detroit.” “I believe our focus should be on how to keep guns out of hands of criminals and those who aren’t responsible.”
Craig said he has noticed a “culture of violence” in Detroit since arriving in July as the top cop. In another statement, which is featured on the magazine cover next to his photograph he stresses: “We’re not advocating violence. We’re advocates of not being victims.”
And residents are listening, the magazine said, saying that “average citizens in harm’s way seem to have taken the advice to heart. ...”
“It does appear more and more Detroiters are becoming empowered,” Craig says in the article, adding that he didn’t expect his stance to generate the controversy that it has. “I really didn’t, because it’s a Second Amendment-protected right.”

You remember Chief Craig, who is in charge of the police force in America's black metropolis... that 83 percent black city, home to America's most violent, criminal populace? He became a hero to gun enthusiasts everywhere only a few months ago, when he came swinging in defense of the 2nd Amendment. [Police chief encourages armed homeowners to fight back: 'You’re not going to have time to dial 911', Yahoo.com, 3-11-14]
Once, Chief Craig was chief of police in 83 percent white Portland, Maine, where everyone concealed carry.
Virtually no violent crime or gun crime.
He was openly critical of the 2nd Amendment then.

The same sentence cannot be written about 83 percent black Detroit, where the violence, gun crime, and complete collapse of civilization there is all attributable to the blackness of the city.

Not once in the fawning article on Chief Craig that the NRA will soon publish in America's 1st Freedom does the word black or african american appear. [A Show of Courage in Detroit: Motor City Police Chief James Craig stands out among major metropolitan chief in encouraging residents to arm themselves for their own defense, America's 1st Freedom, June 2014]:
Detroit's woes are no secret. Joblessness, poverty, gangs, illiteracy and crime now plague the once-thriving hub of the automotive industry. In July 2013, the city became the largest municipal government ever to file for bankruptcy. Studies estimate 25 percent of Detroit's population have departed, reducing the city to numbers predating the Industrial Revolution.
Those who remain have watched Detroit decay into one of the most dangerous cities in the United States. In 2012, the Detroit Free Press reported 386 homicides - the highest in two decades , and nearly as many as New York City, whose population is more than three times larger. The same year saw 1,263 non-fatal shootings, more than 400 rapes and nearly 5,000 robberies.
In 2013, a New York Times report found police response times to Level One priority calls in Detroit were a staggering 58 minutes. The rate of cases solved stood at a mere 8.7 percent. Some police officials even took warning visitors that if they came to the city, the should "enter at their own risk."But whose responsible for creating this inhuman conditions in Detroit, NRA?
It's as if the NRA editorial board is afraid of linking "Detroit" with "black" in the article, which might fire a few brain synapses of the readers of America's 1st Freedom, causing them to think critically for once.
Detroit is an 83 percent black city.
In many parts of the city, you can go for miles without seeing a white face (they are all ensconced in the fort known as the GM Renaissance Center... working).
One of the surest ways for a black individual to immediately punch his ticket to success with the almost entirely white Conservatism Inc. crowd is to take a "courageous" stand on an issue like guns, Obamacare, or in support of the US Veterans. [Police Chief James Craig: 'The things I've seen in Detroit I have not seen in other places, Michigan Live, 4-17-14]:
Detroit Police Chief James Craig, on a day when another citizen -- it appears -- shot and killed a criminal in the act of breaking into their home, addressed criticism that his support for armed citizens constitutes advocacy of vigilantism.
One of his critics, Ron Scott, founder of the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality, didn't like the use of Craig's language identifying "good" versus "bad" citizens, which he believes creates unnecessary divisiveness.
Craig addressed some of the criticism he's heard at Thursday's Detroit Police Commission meeting:
Last week, the issue of vigilantism, as I've publicly said and I'll say it again: I do not promote vigilantism. In fact, I vehemently object, It's cowardly. Vigilantism is self-appointed law enforcement. They're not authorized to engage in law enforcement activities and when they do engage in that they should be punished.
However, I do support the Constitution of this United States. I didn't write the laws or write the Second Amendment but I happen to be an advocate of self defense. Self defense when someone's faced with imminent, the emphasis on imminent threat to their life or someone else, they have the right to protect one's self.
My critics have taken my words out of context ... this is in now way saying the police can't do their jobs. Realistically police officers, I don't care what city in American, cannot be on at every corner at every moment of the day. And when an individual, a community member, is faced with a threat, they sometimes have to react to that threat ...
The whole business of good Americans, good Detroiters, I think there are many more good Detroiters than bad Detroiters, and I'll give you an example, the 19-year-old young man who was fatally killed last week ... by gang members. I describe them as cowards, they're violent and they are not good Detroiters. It's just that simple. I make no apologies for that statement ...
My position is based on 37 years of experience ... The things I've seen here in Detroit I've not seen in other places. There is certainly a culture of violence that many Detroiter have become numb to or desensitized to.
I'll give you a great example: An elderly woman, 70 years old at home, home invasion, suspect comes in and the suspect beats her with a 2-by-4. He robs her of $70 and then he continues to beat her ... These crimes in other places would create a serious outcry that this is just not acceptable and it's almost like some of this is the norm.
"The things I've seen here in Detroit I've not seen in other places. There is certainly a culture of violence that many Detroiter have come numb to or desensitized to."
The "culture of violence" is black-in-origin. Nicholas Stix cited a Time magazine article from April 21, 1958, which included this tidbit about the criminal nature of the then 75 percent white city. "The Negro Crime Rate: A Failure in Integration" included this fact about a city that was only 25 percent black in 1958:
Detroit (25% Negro). Two out of three prisoners held in the Wayne County jail are Negroes. Last month 62% of the defendants presented for trial in Recorder's Court were Negroes. Of last year's 25,216 arrests resulting in prosecution, excluding traffic cases, Negroes accounted for 12,919.With white flight (or in the absence of whites) Detroit assimilated to the culture of blacks.
A most violent culture indeed.
Chief Craig can retire from his role of police chief of one of America's blackest (and brokest) cities, and immediately co-host a show with Colion Noir on NRA TV or get hired by Glenn Beck to talk about fictional black founders of the United States.
But Detroit will remain an 83 percent black city, with white people understanding the lesson of Steve Utash is one in why they should avoid traveling (or doing business) to the city.
Hilariously, Chief Craig told America's 1st Freedom this about his hope for Detroit:
"I believe that Detroit, because of the resilience and the can-do attitude of the people who live here, that Detroit will regain its luster. It will be on these premier cities... I'm excited personally about the future of Detroit."Ha.
I'm not personally excited about the future of either Detroit or the United States of America.
