MI: The 2nd Amendment meets Black Lives Matter in Howell
Submitted by: Corey Salo

About a dozen demonstrators carrying signs in support of Black Lives Matter have gathered outside a historic courthouse in Howell, the Livingston County city still haunted by a racial past.

Fifty feet away, a larger group, about 40 to 50 people, has gathered as well. Many of them are veterans or Second Amendment activists, intending, they say, to protect the city from violence threatened on social media. No one in either group is black, though an African-American man walked past to observe the scene.

Thomas LaMay, 54, belonged to the ladder group. He walked over to demonstrators with a case of bottled water, offering them a drink in the 80 degree heat. They accepted and thanked him.

The criminal justice system is just a system. It has failed people of all races. Amidst the riots across America, people are understandably focused on the problems faced by people of color. While it is obvious that they have faced real problems, lots of other people have felt let down by the system.

That is what I have learned over the years. It has failed people of all races. It often seems that there is not much justice to it.

The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday knocked a proposed constitutional amendment to ban possession of “assault-style weapons” from a prospective berth on the 2022 ballot.

In a 4-1 decision, the court ruled Ban Assault Weapons NOW’s 75-word ballot summary “affirmatively misleads voters” by contradicting broader text in the proposed amendment.

Two groups with distinctly different objectives appeared to find common ground Thursday afternoon and joined each other in solidarity out front of the St. John Public Safety building.

Who crossed the driveway leading back to the St. John Firehouse to talk to the other group first wasn’t immediately clear. But soon after, men carrying assault rifles walked with the young people wearing face masks chanting for justice and racial equality with ease and apparent solidarity as cars driving by on 93rd Avenue honked and Lake County Sheriff’s aerial units circled overhead.

Christina Cardinale, D-Jamestown, wants the voters of Chautauqua County to know she is an advocate of responsible gun ownership.

“I am also pro-Second Amendment. I grew up in a pro-gun household, with a parent who is an avid hunter. I was taught the necessary skills and knowledge for gun ownership at a very young age,” she said.

Cardinale said she wants people to know she is pro-Second Amendment after receiving threats of violence because it’s assumed she is pro-gun control because she is a Democrat.

Massie said he supports peoples' right to peacefully assemble, "but there is no right to break other peoples' stuff or take their things."

The congressman, whose district stretches across much of Northern Kentucky, also said he does not think racism is prevalent in police forces across the nation. Instead, there are "a few bad apples here and there," he said

"The vast, vast majority of (police officers) are patriotic," Massie said. "Some of them are the most pro-Second Amendment people I've ever met, and pro-Constitution."

It might be the Second Amendment to the Constitution, but it’s first in the hearts of many Americans.

Gun sales in 2020 have skyrocketed compared to 2019, particularly in the months of March, April and May as the U.S. deals with the coronavirus pandemic.

Correlation doesn’t equal causation, but experts believe the two are connected.

“Firearms unit sales boomed in March 2020 largely due to the COVID-19 health crisis,” Jurgen Brauer, chief economist at Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting, said in a press release.
