Don't buy into that BS leftist number. That number counts suicides and suicidal people would find a way to die without guns. A great deal of nations with the most strict gun control have the highest suicide rates. There were 12,568 gun violence deaths last year in the U.S. http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/tolls/2014 There are even less if it is classified as murder. https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-8

I’ll be honest. I have never heard of Black Friday before. But judging by the video, I’m assuming it’s a day where massive amounts of idiots gather at the same time.
Black Friday is the first day of the year that stores and companies are finally in the black rather than the red ink. Red ink shows a negative income, but when the ink is black that means that bills are paid AND there is income over and above overhead expense. Hope that makes sense.
Its a day when all peoples regardless of their race,color,creed or sexual orientation, get to participate in behavior like that which was on display in Ferguson, Missouri. Thus the name Black Friday. It's one of those "fundamental transformation" programs that Obama said he would institute into America. Seasons Beatings Everyone!
Never heard of Black Friday...have you been living under a rock your whole life??

As someone who is not voting for trump in the primary, that looks like the impersonation of someone who got caught being dishonest, not of someone who is disabled.
Whether the celebrations happened or not, that guy reported that it did, didn’t make a retraction, then while fact checking trump, said he made it up.
I have seen many people do similar impersonations when trying to imitate someone who got caught being dishonest, bumbling around, stuttering, and knowing there is nothing they can say.
I would be willing to bet the only thing trump knows about this guy is that he once reported Muslims celebrating in New Jersey, only to call trump a liar when he made a similar claim.

For the record
Where did you get mod supporting cop killers from his post?
And sorry, police were never justified to shoot a suspect simply for running. That is untrue.

First, we would do well to look at what works and what doesn’t. What are the top ranked countries doing that we aren’t? If you want to be successful, find someone who is, and do what they are doing.
But other than those platitudes, we could start by firing bad teachers.
“Hundreds of…teachers accused of offenses ranging from insubordination to sexual misconduct are being paid their full salaries to sit around all day playing Scrabble, surfing the Internet or just staring at the wall…Because their union contract makes it extremely difficult to fire them”
Doeen anyone not think that is insane…yet we are doing it.
Another thing that should be looked at is our standardized testing system. There have been stories of teachers caught cheating or fudging grades on standersized tests because a large part of their evaluations are based on how their kids do on them.
So instead of actually teaching, they spend their time prepping students on how to pass a test, rather them making them actually learn, or straight up cheating if that doesn’t work.
Moderate: “I have to question your facts. If you were honest you’d come right and say what percentage of whites commit murder in this country and give your source. If you don’t think that “most” murders are committed by whites, then what percentage are committed by whites? Are you lying about your facts or making them up?
What percentage of murders in this country are committed by whites? You seem unable to answer that question or give a link to your source of information. What percentage of Americans do you “believe” are killed by white people? Can you answer that simple question?
Speck: If you actually are interested in crimes stats I can give you a push in the right direction. Blacks make up around 13% of the population. They commit more than half of the murders.Whites make up around 63% of the population but commit less than half of the murders?
Mod: Speck, I knew you wouldn’t answer my simple question. I guess you think you have the facts but refuse to commit to them or provide a source.
Speck: Expanded Homicide Data Table 3
Murder Offenders by Age, Sex, Race, and Ethnicity 2013
Murders by Whites – 4,396
Murders by Black or african American – 5,375
I didn’t want to, but I can link to the story if you would like. Here is some background.
Mod would make claims like whites kill the majority of people in this country. He would usually say that why trying to paint everyone here as racist who only care about murders when done by Blacks. At the same time claiming, people ignore murder by whites.
But the important part is how moderate acts when confronted with facts.
Simply citing stats from the FBI, adding no opinion or spin, almost always results in moderate saying “you think blacks are inferior to whites,” as he has done in this thread already.
You will also notice that moderate was very involved in the comments, until the link to the FBI was posted. Then, strangely, disappeared.
I will quote the relevant parts and link to the story. It’s long. Bear with me…

I am trying to get away from the name calling. It still appeals to the juvenile side of me, but doesn’t advance the conversation. I would rather my post stand or fall based on their merit.
I also hold nothing against you if you still want to call me OCD or the one trick pony line.
I simply noted that you were critical of Trump for advancing bogus crime stats, something you have done here many times.
 November 24, 2015 at 10:23am
“Speck, the topic of this thread is how bad Muslims are, not how bad blacks are.”
Moderate, be serious, you didn’t even read the story did you?
(Hint: Muslims were not mentioned)
The point of my post can be easily demonstrated, assuming moderate can answer two questions honestly.
1. Did you write a negative post towards Trump because the crime stats he posted were untrue?
2. Have you, numerous times before, posted untrue crime stats?
November 24, 2015 at 10:12am
Zappa, moderate attacked Trump for spreading “false and easily proven false” crime stats, but moderate himself has peddled “false and easily proven false,” crime stats.
Do find that at least somewhat humorous?

Cormac didn’t let the truth get in his way the other day when he said trump accused Carson of molesting children…
 November 23, 2015 at 10:02pm
Good post, but i would like to point out one small issue.
“It doesn’t matter than the statistics in Trumps tweet were false and easily proven false,..The people who support him simply don’t care.”
You also have peddled crime stats that were, “false and easily proven false,” yet that didn’t stop you from repeating them after you were corrected. You even went so far as to attack people who pointed out your stats were made up.
So, Did you routinely repeat crime stats that you made up out of thin air and knew were false because you, “simply didn’t care?”
 November 23, 2015 at 9:50pm
Speaking of lying, you told a pretty big whopper the other day…
You claimed Trump said Carson molested children. Which is a lie. So I’ll take your post with a grain of salt.
But if you think for one second that whoever is leading in the polls, for however long it may be, won’t be labeled a liar, you are sadly mistaken.
