That's it?  All they hysteria over this?

If she was bent over with one guy with a huge d!ck banging her, and a line of others waiting for their turn then maybe she would have something to whine about.

The CCDL is apologizing?  What a bunch of pvssies.
They are a joke. I took my stickers off and will never give them another dime. They have BLM supporters running thier FB page.
guns ? I got rid of all mine before they jumped up from the safe and shot me.

It would appear the admin, or one of the admins, of their Facebook account (and their private account group) has a BLM image as their profile image.

Unfortunately, like many other organizations, they are not very good at a having a social media policy. This is not the first time a representative of the organization has posted stupid shit, but the first time I have seen it as an admin.

The problem with saying you support BLM is that the actual organization, https://blacklivesmatter.com/, is a straight up marxist organization. Its laughable that someone at a pro rights/pro 2A organization would want to support a group who has as one of their stated goals (https://blacklivesmatter.com/blms-whatmatters2020-goals-and-focus/); "Commonsense Gun Laws". Which is hilarious since many gun laws were and still are intentionally racist and designed to limit minorities access to guns. If you donate to that website you are donating through ActBlue who funds Democrats. One of the people who claim's to be a co-founder of BLM flat out states she is a trained marxist (https://nypost.com/2020/06/25/blm-co-founder-describes-herself-as-trained-marxist/). How many people who support BLM actually have read their "What We Belive" statment? (https://blacklivesmatter.com/what-we-believe/)

I do wonder how many who put BLM signs in their yard, use it as a profile icon, fly the flag, or hang the signs on schools/businesses really understand what they are telling others they support? Do they even know the background or are they just supporting a slogan?

The focus should be on the big picture and supporting 2nd amendment rights.  I don't care if someone from CCDL supports BLM.  Are we going to apply a purity test, so if someone strays from the path, that organization and everyone involved is ostracized?  I think not.  That said, there was no need for CCDL to comment on the facebook post.  It was silly political satire that was not racist in any regard.  The facebook post is protected by the 1st amendment!

Rep Gilchrest (and State Senator Doug McCory) proposal to impose an excessive tax on ammunition would have no effect on crime.  It was a lazy idea that has been advocated by Bloomberg's Moms group.  Politicians like her sought out media attention with the ammo tax to score favors with the gun control antis.  If she was really interested in reducing criminals use of guns, she can go take a ride-a-long with the Hartford Police Department in the North End of the city.  Go take a walk and talk to people on the street on Albany Ave or Park Street.  NO, she would never do this, she would be terrified and afraid to interact with people in low income/crime ridden areas of Hartford.  She takes the easy route with zoom meetings with gun control groups from her ivory tower in West Hartford, who tell her want she wants to hear.

No we shouldn't apply a purity test, however we should sit up and take notice when someone supports a group who stated goals include "common sense gun control". We all know what that is code word for. I hope that person is just ignorant of who the BLM organization actually is. Otherwise you have a person who is administering social media platform for a pro gun rights organization, who also professes supports a group who seeks limit gun rights.

LOL that a private citizens Facebook post is protected by the 1st Amendment. Uh no. The 1st Amendment just like most of the rest apply to, and are restrictions on, the government not private companies. Where Facebook and others run into trouble is with Section 230 when it comes to when they censor content on their platforms.

Yep, gun rights really shouldn't be a partisan issue. I could care less about someone's political background if it means we can pass more legislation that gives people more gun rights.

Granted, IMO, that meme was pretty poor taste. I don't think it's racist but posting memes that suggests sex is pretty unprofessional if you're in that sort of position. If I were in any sort of respectable organization I'd refrain from those types of jokes.

Isn't it possible that that person supports BLM but disagrees with the 'common sense' gun laws approach? I don't think it's that big of a platform that BLM stands behind I'm pretty sure they just say that to win over liberals. Actual hardcore leftists like anarchists and communists which make up a bunch of the BLM rioters are pro-gun when it pertains to arming the working class. It's just once they take power they'll start restricting who can have guns.

I mean I'm pretty sure you'll find Republicans that are pro-abortion. For example, I typically vote Republican but I'm fine with universal healthcare for poor people. People got nuanced views you know?

Anarchists are not leftists, anarchy by definition means lack of government, which no leftist wants. Anarchists are much closer to libertarians than the right.

You're thinking about the crust punks from the 80s that wore Anarchy "A's" on their denim jackets to be edgy.

Universal healthcare for the poor already exists, Medicare and Social Security. All socialist programs championed by the Republicans for years. By the way, if there was no government intervention in the healthcare system and taxing us to death, healthcare would be affordable for all.
