2nd Amendment: A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
There are a handful of terms that, when used, immediately elicit images and dialogue inside the average person’s head of fringe, or extreme behavior.

Joshua KrauseActivist Post With the violence in Ferguson finally winding down this week, many folks are struggling to make sense of it all. I myself have read so many differing accounts of the events that transpired between Michael Brown and Darren Wilson, that I refuse to take a side on that incident, at least for now. What we can positively conclude, though, is that the police are out of control in many parts of the country.Michael Brown’s death aside, we’ve all seen the outrageous a [...]
Dees IllustrationCarey WedlerActivist PostA recently published FBI report accidentally proves that while the police claim cops face growing threats from rowdy populations–like in Ferguson–the opposite is true.

Events in Ferguson unfolded as most aware Americans thought they would. A white prosecutor guided a grand jury to the decision that the white policeman who shot and killed a young black male had just cause and committed no crime.
The black majority but politically powerless community in Ferguson consists of Americans who are constantly harassed and abused by police. The black community responded predictably to the exoneration of the white policem [...]
