Michigan Hunter Indicts National Rifle Association (NRA) plus GOP and Other U.S. Lawmakers on Felony Charges of Mass Murder, Bribery, and Racketeering/Conspiracy (RICO Act)

*A message and indictment of the NRA from Greg J. Peterson of Marquette, Michigan, deer hunter, news reporter and a close friend of the creator of this blog- the Rev. Terence A. Dicks of Augusta, Georgia

I am an avid hunter – and on behalf of the United States of America and its children:

I indict and make a citizen’s arrest of the NRA (as a group and its board of directors and executives) plus U.S. lawmakers represented by Republican Party (GOP) and other U.S. elected officials who are involved in an ongoing crime spree involving the mass murder of children and adults, a mob-like conspiracy, bribery and corruption in public office:

Count 1:

I accuse and indict the National Rifle Association (NRA) of insidious complicity in mass murder due to its conspiracy of lies.

Count 2:

I indict lawmakers on bribery charges from being influence by the huge pocketbooks of the gun lobby instead of being influence by the blood of children. These lawmakers should go to prison or be sentenced to spend a night in the poor neighborhoods where tragically violence occurs every minute.

Count 3:

I indict the NRA and GOP and other lawmakers on felony racketeering and conspiracy charges – specifically the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO Act).

Counts 4 thru 1,004:

I indict the NRA and U.S. GOP lawmakers (and other unnamed elected-officials) who support NRA lies and/or received money from gun-related groups) on 1,000 Counts of conspiracy to commit murder.

NRA Indictment

ATF inspector at a federally licensed gun dealer in ATF photo via WikipediaI demand that federal and state prosecutors immediately arrest the leaders of these groups and lawmakers due to their ongoing crime spree – as they did in the case of the Illinois Governor.

The annual deaths of dozens of inner city children by assault weapons is not enough to touch the hearts of the lawmakers who oppose weapon reform.

Due to greed – the NRA continues to deny the impact of these weapons and large clips in all violence including the recent slaughter of young children at a school in Connecticut and other mass shootings.

Whether it be assault weapons, large clips or the ease of access to handguns and ammo, the NRA denial of their culpability in this bloodshed is motivated by large contributions by those who represent gun companies – some secretly – and those who claim to be true sportsman.

Like lambs to a slaughter, America’s children are being gunned-down with ease because the NRA has touted its biggest lie – that a ban on assault weapons and large clips will lead to an end to hunting via the collection of normal game-hunting guns used by decent, fair and reasonable hunters.

A real hunter doesn’t need a semi-auto with large clips – as 3 to 5 bullets are enough bullets or shells in a fair hunt.

If you can’t hit the prey like deer with your first 3 rounds – you’d better really practice your aim.

If reloading is too much – you are just lazy.

Automatic and semi-automatic weapons are for “spray and pray” – not true elegant target practice. Reloading after 3 bullets for these purposes is easy enough to “practice” your aim.

What’s more gun enthusiasts know this – tho many tout the disingenuous and vile arguments of the NRA that are aimed at protecting those who sell these guns rather than America’s children – and for that matter all people.

One of the dumbest arguments I have recently heard is that we need these weapons in order to overthrow the government. This is not the 1700s.

Smith and Wesson Model 60 .38 Special revolver with a 3-inch barre photo by Wikipedia username DoriI strongly oppose assault weapons and big clips plus easy access to handguns.

Anyone who uses the old greedy and slimy NRA argument that gun laws will eventually result in the taking away of “REAL” hunting weapons is regurgitating rhetoric without thinking for themselves.

Now don’t be fooled – these guns laws are needed but do not expect overnight miracles – because as like all major issues the road to solutions have many chambers.

A ban on assault weapons and big clips will not instantly stop school and other mass shootings – this make take decades – but its one helluva good start.

We must pass new gun restrictions.

Like a path in a dense forest, we’ve taken a long walk to arrive at a society with little compassion – and/or being people of goodwill who have become so busy trying to survive that they have little time for others including children.

Even parents who adore their children come home exhausted due to expectations of a bankrupt society where employers expect unreasonable outcomes even by the hardest working and dedicate employees.

It is sick and sad that it took a mass shooting at a mostly white school – for people to cry and care.

I hope they realize inner city kids of that age get shot every day.

We need to approach the problem from many trajectories – like parents restricting violent video games that simulate mass shootings – and taking the stigma away from asking for mental health treatment or any kind of emotional help.

Despite and because of electronic era, we do not communicate with each other in meaningful and one-on-one ways.
This lack of interpersonal communication festers when you add in factors like parents with longer hours, lower pay and being required to do the jobs of 3 people.

Nearly everyone needs some kind of loving and emotional help in today’s whether it be from friends, family or professionals.

The reasons that any kind of new gun laws will not end hunting and target practice are many – and possibly the biggest is not unlike the NRA’s top motivation for aiding and abetting mass murder – and that is money – green – $$$$$$.

We all know, that all 50 states and the feds make lots of money from hunting licenses and other fees to stop hunting by passing legislation or collect real hunting weapons.

Government depends on this economical boost to their respective and collective treasuries and everything related to tourism.

Gun makers have to get over it – be part of the solution and quitting hiring the NRA to be your vicious hunting dog.

The NRA rhetoric often falls on the ears of people who don’t think for themselves or are too afraid to stand up to other hunters who regurgitate the false blather.

I have not missed opening day of firearms deer season – and as long as my health stands I never will.

If the deaths of inner city kids happen in America’s white suburbs – I would not have to write this – because lawmakers would have already banned assault weapons and restricted the number of projectiles allowed at any one time in any gun.

About TerenceDicks

A three-decade community activist for the Augusta, Georgia area, Rev. Terence A. Dicks is very concerned about civil rights, the needs of inner city and moderate and low-income children, fair civil legal representation for low-income and minorities, and many other issues. Terence has fought for civil representation for the low and moderate income involving cases like domestic violence and landlord disputes. In March 2015, Terence was sworn in for a second term to represent the Richmond County Democratic Party on the Richmond County Board of Elections. Rev. Terence Dicks is "widely-acknowledged for standing up for the rights of the powerless in his community and throughout Georgia," stated a press release on the GeorgiaAdvocates.org website when he was elected chair of the Augusta Human Relations Commission in July 2005. In 1986, Mr. Dicks was co-coordinator of the Mr. James Brown Appreciation Day in Augusta – the first time the town and its people earnestly expressed love and respect to the late great Godfather of Soul. About 5,000 people attended the event on the banks of the Savannah River including Mr. Robert Johnson (founder of Jet Magazine and much more), Mr. Greg Gumbel (who did story on BET), and Mr. Eldrin Bell (then asst. police chief of Atlanta). Along with Terence, the other co-coordinator was his lifelong friend and classmate Mr. Greg Peterson, an investigative journalist and outdoor environment reporter who started his career in Augusta and now lives in Ishpeming, MI in the Upper Peninsula near Lake Superior. The event broke the ice and led months later to the first concert Mr. Brown had ever performed in Augusta – ironically in the civic center that now bears his name (the renaming took another 20 years). Music Industry legends Casey Kasem and Dick Clark recorded radio PSAs to promote the free event. Mayor Charles DeVaney – a fan of Mr. Brown – prevented the celebration from being cancelled at the last minute by waiving the “mandatory” insurance requirements. Mr. Brown and Mr. DeVaney both died unexpectedly a month apart. We continue to love and honor the late great Mr. James Brown, who nearly single-handedly quelled Augusta's race riots and prevent further rioting in the 60, 70s. The "Hardest-Working Man in Show Business" Mr. James Brown made Terence Dicks the manager of his first-ever concert in Augusta, GA - about 6 months after the 1986 James Brown Appreciation Day. The concert was held on Saturday, December 27, 1986 at the civic center named in the godfather of Soul’s honor some 20 years later. Terence was the concert manager, producer and promoter. Tickets were only $15 ensuring all Augustans could afford to attend and the first 500 children under the age of 12 were admitted free in accordance with Mr. Brown’s wishes. Among those performing were Mr. Wilson Pickett, John Marshall, Buzz Clifford and Sequence 8. “Claiming A Street Named King” is an initiative Mr. Dicks started during tenure as chair of Georgia Clients Council. The project is about “taking back the street in by building businesses and homes on the crime-ridden abandoned boulevards that bear the name of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” However the project also has a wider scope. Dicks said the project would welcome claiming back streets named after other civil rights leaders and activists from all backgrounds. For example, the project would welcome groups or persons who want to revitalize streets named for late singer James Brown, the late Coretta Scott King, Muhammad Ali, Jesse Jackson, Grace Lee Boggs, Cesar Chavez and others. “All of these community leaders have messages of hope and accomplishment,” said Dicks, who hopes to hear from the centers, foundations and projects of these community leaders. “People can identify with their day to day struggles,” he said. “Above all they cared about the community they came from,” Dicks said. “They all have made a historic difference.” Reclaiming the streets and heritage of these civic leaders can reinvigorate “economic development and economic empowerment” in each community that honors their work. Rev. Dicks hopes to help others “improve the condition of boulevards named after Martin Luther King, Jr. across Georgia” and the nation. Author Jonathon Tilove “wrote the book that inspired me” entitled "Along Martin Luther King: Travels on Black America's Main Street.” Mr. Dicks hopes those interested will message him thru WordPress/Twitter/Facebook. The project is supported by East Carolina University Professor Derek H. Alderman. “Dr. Alderman is a geographer who has helped us to work on a plan for the redevelopment of the Martin Luther King Jr. boulevards,” Dicks said. “There was a lot of hope around those streets and what he did for me is he reminded me of why we name those streets for Martin Luther King, Jr.," he said. "We are heading into the second or third generation who doesn’t know about Dr. King and his achievements." “The generation that starts it doesn’t have to be the generation who built it,” he said. “We have to keep Dr. King’s work alive – keep it relevant and cogent.” Terence is a longtime member (2004-present) of the Augusta Progressive Religious Coalition. The coalition includes Christians, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Buddhists, Hindus, Unitarian Universalists, pagans, and local Yoruba, who practice folk religion from West Africa. Among the many positive aspects of the coalition, Dicks developed a relationship with Omar Neal, who has been the Mayor of Tuskegee, Alabama since Nov. 3, 2008. Mr. Omar Neal was the keynote speaker of the 2011 Martin Luther King Day celebration organized by the Augusta Progressive Religious Coalition on Mon., Jan, 24, 2011 at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Augusta. After being an independent voter for two decades, Terence joined the Richmond County Democratic Party (RCDP) in 2002. He joined the Democratic Committee of Richmond County that “has jurisdiction over Democratic Party affairs in Richmond County” and a “purpose is to help select and elect Democratic Party Candidates to office” and whose platform includes “those of the Democratic Party of Georgia.” Terence has served as chair of the RCDP Political Action Committee (PAC) and performed duties that included community outreach. Mr. Dicks is member of the Richmond County State Committee (2011-2014) representing the 12th Congressional District. He served for six years (2002-2008) as state chair of the Georgia Clients Council plus served on the council board for eight years (2000-2008). For nearly a decade, Terence has been a board member (2002-present) of Georgia Legal Services Program and served (2005-2010) on the organization’s Georgia Committee on Civil Justice and is on the state bar president advisory committee. The mission of Georgia Legal Services Program is “to provide access to justice and opportunities out of poverty for low-income Georgians.” In 2007, Mr. Dicks founded the non-profit Georgia Center for Children and Education Inc. and serves as the volunteer executive director. The goal of the organization is encouraging parent involvement in education and to support community involvement in public schools. Originally the Center for Children and Education, the project was founded 1997 by Philadelphia, PA attorney Baruch Kintisch, a former staff attorney for Georgia Legal Services After exhaustive planning, Terence helped co-write and secure a $255,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in the spring of 2008 that is being administered by Paine College for the "New Tools, New Visions 2 Augusta" Project and he serves on the project steering committee. Rev. Dicks is a longtime member of the International Leadership Association (2001-present). Mr. Dicks serves as state of Georgia Coordinator (2008-present) for the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA). He joined the national PDA in 2007. For over a decade (1998-2009), Terence served on the board of the Augusta Human Relations Commission including two-terms as chair, three terms as vice-chair. Terence served as a board member (1994-1996) and the second vice president of the Augusta Branch of the NAACP including chair of the fair housing committee. Terence graduated from Westside High School in 1980 during which time he was a member of the WJBF TV-6 Junior Achievement Company that involved filming, editing, producing and hosting 30-minute issue-oriented public service programs that aired on weekends with student-sold commercials. Terence did a summer internship in 1980 – just after graduating from high school – at the Medical College of Georgia Television Production and was taught by people who include the late TV Director Mr. Armond “Brother” Jackson , Jr. - a longtime TV production expert in Augusta including at WRDW TV-12 and WJBF TV-6. During high school and for about 7 years afterward, Terence was a radio announcer at several Augusta radio stations including disc jockey (when records were vinyl 45s), sports, features, talk show and more. The stations included WBIA and WCKJ. Terence worked in production at WAGT-TV with Mr. Frank Crotts including being a live switcher (punching proper buttons to keep shows going and inserting commercials). He also worked at several Augusta restaurants as a chef and bartender.
