Re: “Protester Killed at BLM March, Shooter Released From Custody
” By Mike Clark-Madison, 7:00 AM, Mon. Jul. 27, 2020. Once again we get to stand by and witness the violence brought about by our thoughtless gun laws. Hello Congress, presidents, lawmakers, local governments, anyone in a position to take action against our blindsided gun laws. Take a pandemic, total economic upheaval, rising social tensions around police violence and continued racism in our nation, and give the public permission to carry any weapon of choice into demonstrations, and keep a weapon of choice in their cars, and what do you get – the perfect storm for trouble. Do we really think that we can carry an AK-47 into a public demonstration amid rising tensions and open carry laws and not set ourselves up for some kind of incident? Hmmmmmm, let's see. I'll take gun violence for $100, dick. Answer: When these two things are mixed together the possibility of violence is increased exponentially. Question: What is social chaos and open carry laws? What two thing might not go well together – demonstrations and guns, duhh. Time to put aside our Second Amendment determinations and look at this very obvious fact: Guns don't belong in public gatherings where tensions already exist. Bad idea.
