Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- The headline is incendiary.

It is meant to be to show the double standard that has been inculcated in this country, and to show that black people are routinely treated fairly under the law.

There is a myth that has been built and supported by the old media that only white people can use guns in self defense.  The mythology erroneously states that if black people use guns in self defense, they will be jailed.  In fact, black people are using guns in self defense more and more, and they are finding that the law applies to them the same as to other people in society.

Reported on 29 June, 2015,  from courierpress.com:

Paula, who is black, said he encountered the two men — who are white — at a party earlier in the evening, according to Wayne County Sheriff's report. He said the two had made racial remarks, and he had asked them to stop. The men later confronted Paula on Mount Vernon Road near the Fairfield airport.

Statements to police indicate the two men got out of their car, approached Paula and demanded to fight. Paula told the men he didn't want to fight and that he had a concealed-carry licensed and was armed.

When the two men demanded Paula give up his weapon and engage in a fist fight, he pulled his .22 caliber gun and fired 10 rounds at the two, emptying the gun's clip,(sic) according to the report. Paula told police the two men were about a foot from him when he opened fire.

(snip)

Paula drove to the Wayne County Sheriff's Department to report the incident. While the investigation is open, Wayne County Sheriff's deputies say they don't expect any charges will be filed against Paula. They described the shooting as self-defense.

Why isn't this nationwide news on all the channels, especially as this is one of the fruits of the Illinois shall issue concealed carry law?

A black man defends himself against a beating by two white men who made racist remarks.  It sounds like a heck of a news story to me.

It goes against the Democrat President's agenda, who is pushing for more restrictive gun laws.  Examples of black men who defend themselves with guns, and who are respected by the law, do not fit the narrative.

Apparently us white people aren’t worthy of the publicity that the presidents kind (black) are.that idiot only cares to publicize the blacks being shot by whites in the attempt to take our guns.something he would be very sorry he even attempted once the smoke cleared.i am obviously white and have a concealed carry license and if I did the same to two black men I would be jailed, charged,and nationally persecuted on the news and then prosecuted to the fullest extent. Call me racist if you like , mite just as well you’d be right and you can thank the… Read more »

I am talking more about how our innocent youth are being targeted by the Media, Whites and Cops in general.
I think it would be quite interesting for people to read my new publication called, “No Justice No Peace” which could be read as an Ebook. https://sellfy.com/blackstruggle

Impossible. First a lawful citizen defended his own life with a firearm. That can’t happen. Then, this article describes racism in Illinois. That’s impossible, everyone KNOWS that only white southerners are racists, no one in the land of Lincoln can be racist, the North NEVER had slaves and all loved the black man and welcomed freed slaves with open arms. /sarcasm One does not have to look hard to see why this story is not news. First, it serves to show that the Illinois is better for finally having a CCW program, even if it is still crappy. Last year… Read more »

“fired 10 rounds at the two, emptying the gun’s clip,” C’mon Dean, You know better than to call a magazine a clip. Because it was obviously a semi-automatic weapon that was used in this self defense event. You may think me a little touchy about using the correct nomenclature when talking about guns, but if we do not use the right names and descriptions the anti-gun culture will not take us seriously. We have a lot at stake these days and the least we can do is to use the proper descriptions when reporting a story. Thanks for reading this… Read more »

That was why he inserted the (sic) afterwards, meaning that is how it was stated in the source article he is quoting.

First of all This racist garbage has to go. The people that use the race card are the people that fuel the fires of race. God put us in this world and made no distinction on race. When people of all color black and white started to civilize as groups they fought others for supplies to live and some took slaves. People took people white and black….LOOK IN YOUR HISTORY BOOKS…..Blacks in Africa sold slaves they took in wars and sold them…..The north and south fought over slavery and the blacks were freed. But racism still haunts because we the… Read more »

What? These two “innocent boys” were shot while simply strolling along dreaming of future college days, and no riots ensued, no businesses were burned? This can’t be happening in America, Wait – they were white? Never mind.

If the shooter was White and the perpetrators were Black there would at least be claims that excessive force was used.

Why does the racist comments matter? I am white and believe in God, I own firearms and vote for the Constitution. Which means I usually have to vote republican to try and stay close to my morals. I am called cracker, redneck, neanderthal, knuckle dragger, homophobe, bigot, racist, teabagger, white devil everyday. In the media and other places. PC and the thought police will have consequences. Now say what you will about my comments and if you can think of a NEW name please post it for giggles. All that needs to be said is a black man defended himself… Read more »

That is a good shoot! No charges should be filed except again the white idiots for terrorist threat and intimidation. This is in no way a double standard, this is merely self defense.

Everybody remembers the Trayvon Martin debacle, don’t they? What the lame stream media didn’t want most people to know, was that Zimmerman is an Hispanic Jew. It has been stated that in my State(Florida) minorities have used the ‘stand your ground law’ more then whites. Food for thought.
