If they can do this to them…

They can do it to you.

This looks like a made up reason to “Disarms the uppity niggers”.

They don’t get their firearms back until Monday? WTF?

And that raises question for those who say they believe in the right of the people to keep and bear arms. The Panthers’ being race-obsessed collectivists notwithstanding, the question becomes one of whether such laws comport with “shall not be infringed.”

Does being on “public property” create a “compelling state interest” necessitating citizen disarmament? How about being organized? Does that justify the state denying a fundamental right without due process?

Sorry, I’m no fan of the Panthers. (Had a run in with several Local  “New Black Panthers”  about 15 years ago. I’m not their favorite person even today, I’d bet. Didn’t end well for them….I didn’t like it either…

Having said that, One has to remember that they have the same rights as every other citizen, despite being counter culture folks who are, really, Black Supremacists….Until they break the law, they get the same shake as anyone else.

Disarming them is/was wrong. You can ban firearms in the courthouse (Not that I agree with that, but the courts have upheld that)….but to ban them in any demonstration? I don’t think so.

Hate to say it, but I gotta side with the Panthers on this one.
