Open Carrying While White vs. Open Carrying While Black – Klepper

– CJ Grisham is riding
a GT Timberline road bike
with Michelin off-road tires
with Trail Shield Technology
and packing a Blackjack
Firearms AR-15
with a 30-round magazine.He’s on a crusade.– I’m trying to say that not
everybody that’s got a gun is a threat to anybody. That this is what a good guy
with a gun looks like. I’ve had more people yell at me
and say bad things to me wearing a MAGA hat
than I have wearing a rifle. – With a MAGA hat,
you’re wearing a logo that’s connected
with an ideology. That, that’s a fucking threat. – [chuckles]
Yeah. I–it’s weird how
some people feel that way.– This is a show
about activists,
and as uncomfortable
I am around guns,
some of America’s
most effective activists
are the ones fighting
to expand gun rights.
And they aren’t doing it
with poster board.
– I’m always trying to get rid of the shock factor
of seeing a gun. Think people
have been conditioned, “Oh, gosh,
there’s a guy with a gun. I’m gonna call 911. – That’s a good condition.
– Well, is it? When I see somebody
going to church I don’t call the police
and say, “Hey, they’re exercising
their first amendment rights.” – Yeah, well, people aren’t
getting killed with churches around the country. – Well, some people are getting
killed in churches. – Yeah, with guns.
– [giggles]– CJ is the founder
of Open Carry Texas,
a group that wants
to normalize the sight
of people carrying guns
into Chipotle
and loosen Texas gun laws.They’ve been effective.
In 2016,
OCT successfully lobbied
the state to legalize
licensed open carry
of handguns.
– Are we done?
all: No.[tense music]– And their gun introduction
tour isn’t done yet.
– Do y’all mind if I come in
and get a drink? I’ve got a–I’ve got a rifle,
but I’m not a threat. I just wanna get a drink.
I’m on a bike ride. – Oh, no, by law you can.
I’ve got a license. – Yeah. – Okay, you sure?
– Yep. – The cameras can’t come in,
but the AR can. You never know.
Cameras can come in and shoot this place up.
– [laughs] – Is that… Feel at all weird? – Feels a little stra–? – [laughs] – Do you guys have
any protection back there? – Oh, you do?
– Good. That makes me feel better.
– [laughs] – No, it’s good.
I mean, for you. It makes me feel better
for y’all. – Am I the only one here
without a gun on me? – Probably. – Okay, that’s good to know.anchor woman:
Open Carry Texas supporters
wish for constitutional carry,
where all legal gun owners
can carry without a license.– “Consitutional carry”
means that if you can legally
buy a gun, you can carry it
into a Smashburger
or an office supply store.– Everything’s good here
in Staples, so carry on.– Without
an additional license.
And today, CJ and 30
of his OCT buddies
are headed to a parade
in Gonzales, Texas,
to spread the word.
– Hey, what’s going on, Jord?
– This is the big day, huh?
– This is it. – What is the goal of this
event here today? – What we’re gonna do is
we’re gonna be walking along the parade route
and handing out flyers, telling people why they should
support constitutional carry, and I think we’re gonna
have a lot of support.– Because this is Texas, where
the state bird is a revolver,
OCT isn’t even the only
activist group
open carrying today.Two hundred
and fifty miles north,
a second,
totally unrelated group
is using guns to draw
attention to their cause.
My friend Kobe Labee
is embedding with them.
We’re curious how
the experience of this group
that open carries
may differ from this group
that open carries.
[foreboding guitar music]
So wait, wha–what do you know
right now going into this? – I mean, I–hardly anything,
right? So I know I’m meeting this
group called Guerrilla Mainframe.
I know that they’re a groupof black activists
and that they open carry
to protest police brutality, and I know that
we’re in the South, which has never had a problem
with black guys with guns. – I think you’re gonna be
totally fine. I wouldn’t worry at all.
– Okay.
You have the–
you have the confidence that only a white man
with security can have.[ominous music]– It’s true, I doubted police
and people in Texas
would bat an eye at dozens
of mostly white guys
packing heat.Now, it was time to pitchunrestricted assault rifle
access to a young girl
and her beloved llama.– Whoo! This is, uh, just some
information about, uh, gun rights that we’re fighting
for next year. Would you like one?
Take care, y’all, God bless. We think if you can legally own
and posses a firearm, you should be able to carry it
without a license.– I was surprised by how many
people supported CJ.
But some of his soldiers felt
a little green.
– What are you carrying? – I don’t know
the specific number. I know it’s an AR.
I believe it’s an AR-15. – It’s an AR-15.
Do you like open and carry? – Uh, yes.
– Why is that? – It’s just like, if we don’t
have any open carry… If we don’t get
to have our guns, then what happens is that
there’s gonna be– jus–just gonna be chaos. Like, we’re not gonna be able
to protect ourselves. – How much practice
do you have on that thing? – I don’t have practice
right now. I’m just open and carrying it. I feel responsible
for protecting others ’cause I’m the one that could
provide protection with a gun. – That’s a lot of
responsibility for you. You’re thirteen.
– Yeah.– Is that good for you guys?A 13-year-old
carrying an AR-15? – He’s probably a better shot
than I am. Well, that’s not true. Not many people are better
shots than I am. – Yeah, in your time. I think you’re stuck
in the past. [laughs]
– My–my–my–my…– CJ had the support
of Civil War veterans,
but the under-150 demographic
had some doubts.
What did you think when you
saw him coming up with a…? – Oh, well, he was telling us
that it wasn’t loaded, so that was a good thing.
– I think he says he– is–is the gun loaded?
– No, he said it–what? – No, my–my gun’s
got ammo in it. We carry it
like the police carry it. – But you’re not the police.
– But you’re not–yeah. – Well, that’s just it.
There’s really no distinction between the police
and the citizenship other than their general
training and permits to do so. – Training, though,
is one thing. Why keep it loaded right now? – Because if somebody…
Uh, Islamic terrorists, whatnot, crazy guy–
– Islamic terrorists? What’s your expectation? Do you fear
that’s gonna happen right now? – No. – And to be fair,
you’re passing this out because you want more rights,
’cause you feel you’re not– – I want a greater restoration
of rights. – You don’t have enough?
You’re walking around a parade around like John Wick,
and you’re like, I want more.But maybe SEAL Team Kenny
had a point.
Gonzales was a soft target,
and as we all know,
Isis has long had it in
for Lou’s Canoes.
[electric guitar music]– Meanwhile in Dallas…I was about to meet
Rakem Balogun
in Guerrilla Mainframe,a group of African-American
While they run a number
of wellness programs
in their working class
they are most famous
for staging
militant armed protests
against police brutality.
Because black men are three
times more likely to be killed
by police, they rightly feel
a disproportionate threat
from police violence,which is why I was trying
to download a will.
There’s like three will apps.
This is incredible. So, we think Guerrilla
Mainframe is gonna come from down here, and there’s
a police car there that just was lurking
and then did a U-turn and is sitting right where
I think they’re gonna pop out. all: [chanting] Our streets.
– Whose streets? all: Our streets.
– Whose streets? all: Our streets.
– I think this might be them.

  1. Apples to oranges here, both groups are carrying for completely seperate reasons and in different ways the later is obviously more intimidating in both cause and method. ( protesting, hands on, etc.)

  2. I can tell the type of person you are in the first 15 seconds of this video. You’re an attention seeking douchebag that thinks he knows better than everyone.

  3. Wow, living in Britain we literally can’t walk to the shops or school without constant knife and gun attack. If only we had people carrying guns, that would make it so much safer. Literally, giving everyone access to firearms is a fantastic idea and has no drawbacks.

  4. I Guess Cj Made Everyone All Comfy At Walmart In El paso Getting Use To Seeing Guns Maybe Thats Why That POS Killed So Many..Customer: Oh That Cj Open Carry Texas" Cj You Fucking Clown

  5. That white man said if an Islamic terrorist is around he can use his rifle then. Is he kidding and living in a bubble? The only people causing mass shootings and terror are white males.

  6. Incredible Courage …please review this video. I would like your opinion. Share if you'd like… Thanks, Garry

  7. This was the dumbest thing Texas has ever done and it needs to be repealed immediately. It should be addressed on the federal level where nobody carries weapons in plain sight and nobody carries automatic weapons at all. I do not live there anymore, but this is not the Texas I grew up in. I never once saw a gun at all except a hunting rifle.

  8. As you can see – the law is fked up – 13 yr olds with AR no training ? You have to be more responsible- the AR could easily be taken from that kid – use your brains people – the law needs to be more refined and training and an interview will need to be in this qualifying to carry – times have changed and so has the enemy 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼🇺🇸

  9. The only way we will know what's best is to experience it for a period of time. Guns for a year. Democrats run shit for a month. Republicans run shit for a month. It's common sense and we are sophisticated enough to know this.

  10. White ppl have stocked guns and if they were all around they would probably have a cleanse of other races. Last time guns were all around we were raided for resources and they never left.

  11. Guns only dangerous in the wrong hands… In MS you can open carry But a Damn AR 15…? Haa na Glock 19 or the 38 Snubbie

  12. leftist commie scum, amazing how much this "host" hates guns and the people who support them what a liberal cuck pussy

  13. Tf they wanna be cowboys next they wanna pass anybody with a horse can ride it on the street without a license that Ludacris.

  14. "I've got a rifle but I'm not a threat………" that's what all the nutters will be saying when they enter their target areas in the future. MAGA – Make America Grieve Again.

  15. These are the people who shouldn’t be allowed to have firearms.
    For us responsible and smart minded gun owners we don’t find the need to flex firearms in public for unnecessary purposes.
    Edit: Meaning that idiot on the bicycle with a rifle

  16. This guy is the definition of a brainwashed prejudice liberal anticonstitutional antigun sheep. 🐑

    But having said that, some of this people really go way overboard and make more damage to the gun rights cause than to help it. There’s absolutely no need to go around carrying an AR-15 or any rifle on the street or in public for self defense or any other reason than to being ignorant trying to get attention. Having the right to have guns does not means you should walk around like a retard with an AK-47 on your back. Morons.

  17. how are you going to call yourself a "journalist" but choose a side while reporting. its supposed to be non-opinion. but I shouldn't have to tell you this

  18. your typical "I'm just an average level-headed beta schmuck from Hollywood embedding with these crazy Southerners" shpeel…yawn.

    Yeah, like you REALLY felt the need to write a will because you were going to be within arms-length distance of somebody with a gun.

  19. To actually make America great again!
    Yup this is why America needs to be great again.
    People are threatened that America should be great again.

  20. Really? "CJ had the support of Civil War veterans." What an asshole. As if being old has anything to do with supporting gun rights.

  21. Honestly I had to delete my original post. If we are going to allow loaded open carry, we should just go through some sort of training and have permits.

  22. They need to take the United of and just call The States America. The world is watch America and laughing. Others are wondering how is it that in one country there are so many laws for different places and people.

  23. Are your numbers right?

  24. WTF Dude! REPORT BOTH SIDES! (I'm a member of OCTexas and OCTennessee and good friend of CJ Grisham, btw.)

  25. Do your own research… Quit believing the first thing you see on social media or the news, no matter the side you lean towards… Wake up America!

  26. Call the Open Carry Texas nutjobs what they are: domestic terrorists. Sane people don't wave loaded guns around at a parade for kids. These fucking clowns couldn't stop the theft of a gumball from a gumball machine. They jerk off to Guns & Ammo magazine and have delusions of grandeur that they are going to stop al Qaeda? If they're so diluted that they could stop al Qaeda or ISIS, why aren't they in Syria, Yemen, or Afghanistan right now? Why aren't they taking their Walmart camouflage cargo shorts to the enemy, rather than waiting for the attack to happen on American soil? Answer: because they are fucking pussies who would get eaten alive if they ever ran into an actual enemy soldier in a war zone.

  27. I just want an little 22 lr repeating rifle and one of those little pinfire necklace guns that shoot 2 milimeter bullets lol

  28. What a piece of BS. NO real mention on the REAL Black Carry issues that we face. WTF click Bate Really Pu*A* white man?? Posting his BS FOR YOUR own notoriety when you could have enlightened us all on the subject?

  29. i guess the black open carry group didn't look any better than the white one or else you would of seen more of them in the video.

  30. So dangerous,so reckless,are people seriously this feel like they have to carry everywhere they go🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️

  31. It is a shame, what the Democrats have done to the US. Black slavery, their KKK, FDR murdering tens of thousands of Jews, by his actions and inaction. FDR having Nazi-style master-race medical experiments performed on black men.

  32. Klepper shut up with Your one sided comments I bet that if a shoot out broke out you would like that person with a gun next you to save your life from the shooter.

  33. well NOW we know what those brave open carry Texans did for those unfortunate 20 ppl MURDERED BY I supposed "bad" gun owner.
    Guns for sport/ control hunting and home protection :YES
    Open carry- guns on the streets and high capacity-auto or semis : NO
    is that so hard to understand ? word !

  34. Ok, walking in a parade is a lot different than a political anti-ploice rally. It not just the gun, its the demesnor of the person with the gun.

  35. You know why black people are 3 times more likely to get shot then whites people? Because black people commit 50% of the crime when they only make up 13% of the population in America

  36. Y'all don't even try to understand the pro gun side of the argument. You just make fun of the people marching for their rights.

  37. Guns are for weak scared men.I f you feel you have to carry a gun it is ba for sure sign that you are living in a shit hole country and you are definitely not free.

  38. Shame. One of the most interesting, enlightening shows offering insights on often overlooked aspects of the US, and it's effectively unavailable for everyone abroad. Nice work, Comedy Central!

  39. Black on White violence compared to White on Black violence.
    Black on White violence is not even reported on the news, or race is never mentioned.
    White on Black violence is not only reported on the news, but race is most definitely pointed out:
    "White Man shoots unarmed black man! White Police Office shoots an unarmed black man:
    And white on black violence will not only be reported in America, but all the Westerns Countries. When Trayvon Martin was shot by Zimmerman, the media showed Trayvon Martin as a cute 12 year old, not the 6ft 2 inch 18 year old that he now was. Also, Zimmerman was Latino, not white. And Zimmerman is a Jewish name.
    But the media reported him as a racist white male he shot an unarmed 12 year old black boy.

  40. Typical leftist spin. Now, look into WHY young black men are three times more likely to be shot by the police. DOJ, 2016 study or 2015 FBI study. Next, you correctly identified one group as being, "militant" (your word, not mine) and the other group that was part of an advertised parade where they announced they were going to be present ahead of time. Lastly, what part of the 2nd Amendment do you not understand? The language is pretty simple and you seem like an educated fellow so I just don't understand.

  41. Rarely do I see a YouTube comment thread with 2 opposing sides and I agree with both. I'm pro gun rights for all American citizens. But I would have loved to see how the police, the local citizenry and the only group featured in this video would have reacted to my brothers toting arms. I mean really tight facial close ups and all. We live in two different Americas. Y'all want to make America great again, we're just trying to make America great.

  42. The statistic about blackmen being 3 times more likely to be shot is bull shit white men are shot more than black men consistantly year after year.
