Carson's fantasy scenario is the one that reflects the way many Americans approach the issue of guns. The fantasists have come to believe that if they had a gun, they'd be able to ensure their own safety and the safety of those around them.
Our political system is built on the promise of democracy for all, not democracy for those who can afford to drive cross-state to get an ID. How can GOP leaders and presidential candidates continue to insist with a straight face that there's no need to restore protections for voters?

It's interesting as you get older that the things your parents told you start to ring more and more true...perhaps it is maturing or maybe it's encountering situations and from somewhere a saying from the past pops up.
Timothy Lampkin is a 29-year-old Community Development Consultant in Clarksdale, Mississippi. I spoke with the sharp-minded activist about what fueled his drive to reshape the region, the challenges ahead, his ultimate end goal, and the calculated plan for achieving it.
