More on the Gun Control Debate and Black Women

We're having a very interesting debate about a post I wrote Friday about a woman being gang raped while her neighbors listened to her scream and do nothing. In that post, I mentioned a comment from Black Women Vote that pointed out the recent Supreme Court Decision finding that the District of Columbia's absolute ban on guns in private homes was unconstitutional. She mentioned the option of Black women arming themselves.

Now in the original post, I mentioned two alternative options including self defense classes and meeting your neighbors, but apparently including the option to arm yourself was controversial to some people. It wasn't an endorsement one way or the other. Well Angry Independent offered this very disturbing video of a home invasion of a single Black women and her son. Hmm where have we heard that before?

4 teens or young men were caught on tape trying to get in her house through windows, the garage door, and kicking in the front door as well. They went so far as to cut her phone line.

Just thought I would add this clip to the discussion.
