Exclusive: New Black Panther Party says to carry arms in Cleveland if legal

The chairman of the New Black Panther Party, a "black power" movement, said his group will carry arms for self-defense during protests at the Republican convention next week if allowed under Ohio law.

"If it is an open state to carry, we will exercise our second amendment rights because there are other groups threatening to be there that are threatening to do harm to us," Hashim Nzinga, chairman of the New Black Panther Party, told Reuters in an interview.

"If that state allows us to bear arms, the Panthers and the others who can legally bear arms will bear arms."

Nzinga condemned the killing of five police officers in Dallas last week as a “massacre” and said his group played no role in the attack.

Officials in Ohio have said it will be legal for protesters to carry weapons at demonstrations outside the convention under the state’s “open carry” laws. Several other groups, including some supporters of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, have said they will carry weapons in protests as well, leading to concerns about rival groups being armed in close proximity.

2. Who knows?

Maybe the black and whites carrying weapons can bond over their mutual affection for AR-15s and their variants.

Then the NRA can make a commercial: Guns: It's what keeps us together.

6. I could live

With the irony of guns being a catalyst that reduces racism and lessens people shooting each other.

3. Wow-Cleveland is gonna be fun! People get trampled to save $10 on a TV on Black Friday...

should be VERY interesting when entire groups of passionate people go head-to-head over serious matters of life and death, threaten each other, AND plan to have guns.


Although as alluded to in post below, maybe they will find their interest in guns to be something they have in common, and get along splendidly!

5. I read a dialog (facebook?) between an armed black armed group and a (primarily) white armed group

 

who announced they were descending onto Ferguson, MO. The discussion centered on dress style and comportment, with the black group favoring more formality so as to better convey responsibility and competency. The white group so noted this. The discussion was cordial.

8. Where are they now?

 

The ones that support the caller that got John Crawford killed, and the ones that support the breaking of arms of minorities that carry?

Where are they now?

They seem awful quiet.
