    Gun Rights encourage police to shoot people?

    Get ready for some Progressive logic....

    Among "progressives," it's an article of faith that gun rights advocacy and racism are inextricably linked. One writer goes so far as to argue that broad recognition of gun rights in the U.S. causes cops to shoot black men.

    When I hear someone referred to as a “progressive” I think of them as so “open-minded” that their brains have fallen out.

    Perhaps "Cops" are encouraged to shoot "people" because "people" do stupid things, are aggressive toward "Cops" and do not do what the nice "Cop" tells/asks the "people" to do, therefore leaving and open invitation on behalf of the stupid "people" to get shot at by the "Cops" doing a job that us, the "people" have asked them to do.

    But what the H. E. Double Hockey Sticks does logic and reason have to do with the majority of these "people" nowadays?

    Unsurprising, that those for whom the ability to defend oneself is anathema would take the illogical conclusions so far as to claim the ability to justifiably defend constitutes encouragement to unjustifiably murder. That truly is twisted, politically-motivated pap. Sadly, for many millions it's just this sort of garbage that makes them feel better about being alive, that they can seemingly stick it to others over whom they have little to now power or authority. Doesn't surprise me they'd broadly paint all upstanding people as would-be murders because it suits their agenda to do so. They'll stoop far lower, if given half a chance.
