There is no constitutional concept regarding armed citizenry going against a state or municipality. The concept is regarding the federal government. There was no fear nor were there discussions regarding the states because the states are close to the people, can be remedied quickly, and the laws of the states are created by the legislation that represents the people of the state or the municipality. The concept applies to a random Senator or House member in Washington D.C. making a law that affects a state or citizens of a state outside the limited powers of Article I, Section 8. This violates the representative form of government concept.

Exactly.

Using their current set of parameters, these RWNJs would have found fault with the Boston Tea Party, and probably the DOI itself.

A perfectly racist interpretation of the data.

Try this.
Poor people commit crimes at a much higher rate than middle class and wealthy people.
And in the US we have a lot of poor black people, mostly due to this being a country with a long history of brutal racism aimed at keeping black people poor.

Poor people do not commit crimes at a much higher rate than middle class and wealthy people. The data from the Great Depression and ensuring recession debunk this economics and crime relationship.

There was a slight increase in crime during the Great Depression and it is attributable to prohibition related gangsters,which were not poor,; alcohol related crimes associated with prohibition, which is not dependent on being poor; and the creation of organized crime due to prohibition, which is not dependent on being poor.

and white people are murdered by police more frequently but is this discussion focused around race and primarily blacks? if so tossing the race card in when the data is factual seems a bit disingenuous IMO.

Darth Vader anyone?

"She was the calm at the center of the storm, a storm spreading across the country.

The young woman stood silently on the cracked asphalt, her summer dress billowing in the breeze.

Around her swirled a kinetic mix of police officers and protesters. Dozens of demonstrators had blocked Baton Rouge’s Airline Highway on Saturday to denounce the death four days earlier of Alton Sterling, shot by police outside a convenience store. Many protesters carried signs. Some shouted into bullhorns. A few carried guns.
The woman in the summer dress didn’t seem to look at the two officers as they ran toward her. Instead, she seemed to look beyond them — even as they arrested her.

“She just stood there and made her stand,” the Reuters photographer told BuzzFeed. “I was just happy to be able to capture something like that.”
