Charlotte NAACP Leader Supports
Open Carry, Second Amendment

By Dean Weingarten. September 23rd, 2016

Corine Mack is the President of the Charlotte, North Carolina NAACP. Ms. Mack recently made statements that should be music to Second Amendment supporters’ ears. On CNN, the NAACP prez said that the mere fact that someone has a gun should not be enough to allow police to shoot them.

From CNN:

MACK: At the end of the day, you know, a video may show a different perspective depending on the angle. And so if we don't have many different angles, you may not get the full picture. I think the most important part is the contrast in him having a book versus a gun. But in my mind and in most of the community's mind, it really doesn't matter if he had a gun.

At the end of the day, we have the right, under the Second Amendment, to carry here in North Carolina. And their responsibility was to engage him in a more de-escalated way, to find out if he had a permit for his gun and allow him to go on his merry way and he would still be living today.

That's not what happened. And so I don't want anyone to walk away from this conversation today thinking that a video showing he had a gun in any way says that he's guilty of anything.

Mack went on to say that police give white people who have guns different treatment than black people. That's a common misperception. While it's statistically true that black people commit violent crimes at higher percentages than white people, police are more likely to shoot white people who resist arrest than black people who resist arrest........

Part of this opinion is woven around the recent and contentious shooting event in Charlotte, North Carolina. The point of interest is mainly the comments made by Corine Mack, who seems to have a very logical approach to firearms and the Second Amendment, despite her race and the circumstances suggesting she might actually have opined otherwise. There is also significant, perhaps surprising to some, analysis of figures between races regarding criminality and police shootings.
