STOP Gun Appreciation Day!

Sign the petition to Stop Gun Appreciation Day at Signon.org

Larry Ward, Chairman of Gun Appreciation Day insults me, and probably most black people in America (except Allen West, most likely). Not only is this so-called wack Gun Appreciation Day tasteless and insensitive to victims of gun violence, it is specifically designed to coincide with the Inauguration of President Barack Hussein Obama and the Martin Luther King holiday. The blatant racist and insensitive nature of this abominable day make me want to spit. Join me in signing the petition against it!

With the increase in gun violence in America, I am more and more concerned for the safety of all Americans, but in particular African Americans, the President, other minorities and other targeted groups from these right-wing hatemongers. As you can tell, at this writing I am also quite pissed by Ward’s crack regarding black slaves and gun ownership. For the record, during slavery black people were property (and still are in some cases). It was against the law to teach black people to read nevermind own a gun.
