Stacey Abrams: Standing Your Ground Makes You a Bigot

Kerri Battles for LBJ School aka Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs via Wikimedia Commons

Georgia readers, check out Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams’ gun views as voting day approaches:

“…people get shot in the streets because some bigot decided he got to stand his ground.” SecondAmendmentDaily.com, Stacey Abrams Video

“We need waiting periods because we know that we need time to find out what’s happened. We should make certain that no violent offender, especially a domestic abuser, has the ability to terrorize domestic abusers with a gun.”

“We have to make certain that automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons that fire high-caliber rounds, that assault weapons are not allowed in Georgia.”

“I want common sense gun regulation because I believe in the Second Amendment. And if we want to protect the right to bear arms, we’ve got to protect the people in the state of Georgia and that is my mission.” Politics.myAJC.com, Abrams was Asked if She’ll Take Away Guns

“I think we have to begin with universal background checks. We have to ban assault weapons and the accouterments that make those weapons so dangerous. We have to, I think, investigate extreme protective risk orders, which allow interventions when someone poses a danger to either themselves or to others. …I would repeal campus carry…” MDJOnline.com, Stacey Abrams Talks Incentives, Guns, and Education

“It’s OK to talk about taking away weapons that have never belonged on our streets. It’s OK to demand a three-day waiting period. It is OK to say that background checks are necessary because not everyone who has the right to bear arms deserves the arms they want to bear.”

“There are those of us who are told our paths are going to be blocked by barriers that are created by folks not ourselves. That because we are women, because we are people of color, because we are poor, because we believe that right to bear arms does not mean the right to bear arms everywhere, any time, anywhere, we are told our beliefs are permanently off the table.” Politics.myADJC.com, How a Mis-Fired Gun-Related Tweet Put Abrams on the Defensive

          Nor is it a requirement for her constituents. In fact, according to them, the only necessary qualification is black skin.

    If the self hating white people of Georgia elect this woman you deserve what she does to the state.

    Voting against her does not make you a racist. Just as voting against an anti civil rights homosexual candidate, does not make you a person who hates gay people.

    1. avatar New Continental Army says:

      There’s no way in hell this piece of work wins in Georgia. Especially not on that platform. The way she’s talking is like she’s doing every thing possible to lose by the greatest possible margin.

      1. avatar Adam says:

        Polling has her dead even with the Republican. We can laugh all we want but we are slowly starting to lose the south. North Carolina is already turning blue as are Florida and Texas. Georgia could easily be the next purple to blue transformation state if Republican’s don’t start making a better case on why people should vote for them.

        1. avatar Michael Buley says:

          The real challenge isn’t that conservatives don’t have a very strong platform. It’s that the left owns/controls almost all, if not all, mainstream media. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Youtube … New York Times, almost all major TV stations. Fox has gone quite to the left, with a couple of exceptions.

          So what do the masses hear? Anti-gun. Trump’s the problem. Racism. Sexism. White guilt. Etc. And that’s all they hear.

        2. avatar New Continental Army says:

          That’s pretty bad if that’s the case. If a state like Georgia can’t remain reliably conservative, no where can.

    2. avatar Curmudgeon says:

      Same problem in Georgia as many of the rest of the states have. High density of northeast and Chicago transplant liberals and entitlement program recipients in Atlanta and Macon are skewing the longtime conservative base. Stacey Abrams is running on a platform of “Free Stuff” and the liberals are drinking the cool aid by the gallon.

    3. avatar Chris T in KY says:

      The scariest thing in america in an articulate black man with a gun.
      The most terrifying thing in America are thousands of black people wearing “Make America Great Again” hats at the White House. It happened today. You will not see this story on CNN. I doubt you will see or hear it on PBS. I gave up on the MSM a very long time ago.

        You’re right on, Chris. On it being the scariest (to the left) thing in America. Blacks waking up. Blacks walking away from the plantation. And MSM will cover zero of it. Over the last two years in particular, MSM has revealed itself as the absolute propaganda arm of communism.

        I live north of Seattle. I get the Seattle Times paper. I don’t read the articles because I can’t stand to read the skewed view of everything Trump and conservatives. I do read the headlines, and that’s always enough to tell me where the article is going. The agenda is communism, though most of the masses, basically good though very ignorant people, are the ‘useful idiots’ of communism. And the extreme difficulty of preserving this nation, is that we have a media that is communist, and it ‘informs’ / manipulates / controls the minds of many millions in this country. Add in the millions of illegals / dead who vote … One has to wonder if there is any way to avoid things getting quite violent. Maybe not so long as Trump is President.

    1. avatar Scoutino says:

      Sounds like she is implying that minorities often attacks others, so if we stand our ground and defend ourselves, it makes us bigoted. We should meekly let the ‘less fortunate’ redistribute our undeserved wealth by robbery. Or have some ‘old in and out’ when they feel the need. Otherwise we’re raceeees’.

    “I think we have to begin with universal background checks. We have to ban assault weapons and the accouterments that make those weapons so dangerous.”

    Those people are going to get anti-rights legislation passed. We had better get used to the idea that things are going to get drastically worse for gun rights until SCOTUS can put the brakes on them.

    The next ten years are gonna be rough…

      Accoutrements that make them more dangerous?? Only one i can think of is a grenade launcher

      1. avatar CZJay says:

        She probably is referring to detachable magazines.

        1. avatar Michael Buley says:

          She tried to use a ‘big word’ that she heard somewhere, which couldn’t begin to offset her pathetic ebonics grammar and speech. She means whatever she wants to ban that makes a gun more effective, if not simply usable. She is a very dangerous idiot.

    A right is not a right if it applies only within the narrow boundaries of whatever the Powers That Be feel are appropriate at any given time. That’s what you call a “privilege”, really nothing more or less than the beneficence of your masters. A right is that which a ruler is bound to respect, or else cease to be a ruler.

    2. avatar Michael Buley says:

      Any politician who outright encourages, or condones, illegals voting, is a traitor to this country at the most fundamental level. I continue to be astounded that these people — and those who establish ‘sanctuary cities’ — aren’t arrested, prosecuted, and punishment given accordingly. How the blatant endorsement, or encouragement, of illegals voting, does NOT result in arrest and prosecution, staggers me to this moment.

  10. avatar Leighton Cavendish says:

    she does know that it is usually another black man that is shooting at a black man…in the overwhelming majority of cases…right?
    same for white on white…

    1. avatar Don says:

      Most murder cases involve perpetrator and victim of the same race, but when you look at interracial crime between Blacks and Whites, Blacks are there perpetrators and Whites are the victims in 85% of the cases.

      1. avatar Jean-Claude says:

        You are correct. And most murders in America are committed by blacks.

        Black males under 50, usually.

        So about 6% of the population commits 51% of the murders.

  11. avatar Ogre says:

    “We should make certain that no violent offender, especially a domestic abuser, has the ability to terrorize domestic abusers with a gun.”

    If this is not a typo, then her editors/handlers should be fired. Or maybe she really did say that and is a world-class ditz. That she’s engaging in anti-gun doublespeak is obvious.

          I wish I could afford a Hind… Those things are awesome… Though to be fair, the pilots for those things must have been midgets. I’ve had a chance to sit in the cockpit of one, and I’m pretty sure the canopy wouldn’t have crushed my head if I tried to close it.

          A supposed quote from an Afghan Mujaheddin – “We are not afraid of the Russians. But we are afraid of their helicopters…”

        5. avatar pwrserge says:

          If I can barely put on a Hind cockpit, there’s no way you’re going to squeeze an ork in there. A grott, maybe, but not a propa boy. Though the thin’ is ded shooty.

  13. avatar Michael Buley says:

    “I want common sense gun regulation because I believe in the Second Amendment.”

    Can she read? That part — ‘shall not be infringed’ — did she actually read the 2nd Amendment?

    I suspect the founders who penned the 2nd Amendment, thought that the absolute wording — shall not … be infringed — would cover it. F-ing politicians / lawyers / criminals got past that minor point a long time ago.

    1. avatar JasonM says:

      Some of those same founders passed the Alien and Sedition Acts, even though “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…”.
      Politicians have been untrustworthy as long as they’ve existed.

    Early voting here in Georgia has Republican voters well ahead of Democrats, but we need to put a major beat down on this woman. If she looses by more than 10 points we are less likely to see her again.

    “…people get shot in the streets because some bigot decided he got to stand his ground.”

    People get shot in the streets because they are the victim of a crime who was told they could not defend themselves from aggression, not because someone stood their ground. True, there are cases where someone tried to claim stand your ground and it wasn’t a case of self defense, but for the most part if you’re shot in the act of being an aggressor you probably deserved it. Sorry. There’s enough bullies the world. I would do my best to avoid any kind of physical aggression and if I am in a state that allows stand your ground I will still try to remove myself from the situation – I never want to have it on my head that I have ever taken a life, even to preserve my own. If pressed though I will defend myself using any possible means at my disposal.

    1. avatar Binder says:

      Don’t kid yourself, most people get shot in the streets because they are a gang member or hanging out with a gang member.

  21. avatar Sheer Hawai'i says:

    Stacey Abrams doesn’t even have the brains to make stupid sense, as some Democrats are unfortunately blessed with having for their low information minions.

    If she’s the best candidate that the DNC could find in Georgia, they must already be scraping the bottom of their barrel.

    The liberals’ worst enemy is their own lack of intelligence.

    1. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      For politicians pandering to low information (liberal) voters, lack of intelligence is not a handicap. It’s a compulsory attribute.

  22. avatar Garrison Hall says:

    Y’all are just being so mean! How’re the homies gonna get money for school and stuff if they can’t get it from rich white people . . . who stole it from black people anyway!! If they start carrying guns and pass Stand Your Ground Laws they’re just making it all to hard. //sarc//

    What a load of babbling bullshit.

  24. avatar Timothy K. Toroian says:

    If the people are stupid enough to vote her in as governor they deserve what they get. She wouldn’t be good for blacks either. She’s way too far from the off.

  25. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    I just want to know what is a high-caliber round?

    1. avatar TrueBornSonofLiberty says:

      Marijuana infused gun powder.

      1. avatar Jon in CO says:

        If it was pot infused black powder, I’d be down to go shoot it. Sounds like a great time. Seems to be foggier than normal…

    2. avatar Michael Buley says:

      Whatever they say it is. The whole idea, of course: the communists have complete and arbitrary authority to dictate whatever they want. What’s high caliber? Who is an enemy of the state? Whose money can they steal? They ask any question they want, and answer it in whatever way suits their purposes.

      No doubt a b-b gun would eventually be high caliber.

    3. avatar GluteusMaximus says:

      Like .223. You know high caliber

That because we are women, because we are people of color, because we are poor, because we believe that right to bear armsdoes not mean the right to bear arms everywhere, any time, anywhere, we are told our beliefs are permanently off the table.”
    Those “folks not ourselves” would be the founders of this great nation. And those “barriers” are known as “The Bill of Rights.” Which, by the way, is the law in this country, and its plain text clearly indicates that you are wrong. So take your totalitarian views, your race card and your “victim of sexism” mentality, and gtfo.

    1. avatar Michael Buley says:

      While law-abiding citizens would think that’s a great idea, Michael, the truth is that the laws are only for the law-abiding, and politicians can pretty much be included in the criminal element in our country.

  34. avatar Jay says:

    She can’t even use proper English. Only a retard would vote for her.

  35. avatar Rocketman says:

    Sounds a lot like to me that she’s the real bigot. She very clearly has it in for gun owners and anyone that thinks that they have the right to defend themselves.

  43. avatar Chris Morton says:

    “Common sense gun control” has ALWAYS coincided with “common sense Jim Crow”.

    If you want to enslave (or re-enslave) a people, first ensure that it remains ignorant, especially of its own history.

    1. You got that right.

      How else do you explain support for Kamala Harris?

      “Local law enforcement must be able to use their discretion to determine
      who can carry a concealed weapon,” said Kamala Harris, who was then the
      California Attorney General.

      I have always wondered how #BlackLivesMatter would view this. After all,
      according to their narrative, cops are just Klansmen with badges who
      habitually gun down unarmed black men. How could we trust such people with
      discretion to determine who may carry a concealed weapon.

      And yet, she tweeted this:

      https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/895339395599011848

      Today, we remember #MikeBrown and recommit to ensuring truth,
      transparency, and trust in our criminal justice system. #BlackLivesMatter

      So I wonder if any reporter from the network broadcast and print media would
      ask her any of the following questions:

      – If the reason that “[l]ocal law enforcement must be able to use their
      discretion to determine who can carry a concealed weapon” is because they
      are just Klansmen with badges, why shouldn’t the Stormfront White
      Nationalist Community also get to decide who can carry a concealed weapon?

      – If the reason that “[l]ocal law enforcement must be able to use their
      discretion to determine who can carry a concealed weapon” is because they
      habitually gun down unarmed black men, why shouldn’t the Crips also get to
      decide who can carry a concealed weapon?

      – Is more black men dead or in prison a worthy price to pay to make lawful
      gun ownership more difficult?

      – Is making lawful gun ownership more difficult a worthy price to pay to put
      more black men in prison?

      – Does some magical guardian fairy turn these Klansmen with badges into
      freedom riders whenever they exercise their “discretion to determine who can
      carry a concealed weapon”?

    Why can’t she just stick to making pancakes and syrup? Her pancakes and syrup are the best.

  47. avatar Jim Bullock says:

    “…people get shot in the streets because some bigot decided he got to stand his ground.”

    Um, people get shot in the streets more often than not, associated with gang, turf disputes. Literally “stand your ground”, thought the opposite of what the No Duty To Retreat laws say.

    Often, the shot and shooter are bigots. Until you’ve heard gangs going off on each other, you haven’t heard racial, racist and derogatory. “Bigoted” one might say.

    Maybe we should do something about gang, turf-based racial violence in our streets, and leave alone people minding their own business til they’re shot at … people of whatever color.

    Just a thought.

  48. avatar Bierce Ambrose says:

    “Stand your ground” … the notion that you are not required to cede your place, stuff or life on demand to some thug who happens to be armed. So, of course she’s against the notion.

  49. avatar Bierce Ambrose says:

    Weird that a black woman would oppose the notion that people own themselves.

    I don’t think they — her handlers and message crafters — have thought this position through.

Try calling your buddies at BLM…perhaps they will come to your aid!!!

    According to Brietbart…unless today is the First day of April…as of this morning, the Georgia branch of the New Black Panthers seem to think kindly of her. They marched a few blocks for her carrying ARs, sporting full military regalia and the necessary berets, and her campaign signs, yes, signs, plural. Those poor, unfortunate progressives in GA. If you pick up a fired 5.56 case and listen carefully, you can actually hear the sound of…unintended consequences = some unbelievably, bizarre blowback. Who, what or which side do they cheer for now? Lord have mercy on me. I have no dog directly in this fight, but I don’t know whether to laugh or wind my watch. Is there anything in Revelations about this? There should be. -30-

    Then her “standing her ground” in trying to steal the election proves her point.
