Response to DanTex (Reply #15)

35. Not in so many words...

 

but you did approvingly quote a hack who desperately attempted to tie police shooting wildly at an unarmed, fleeing man to America's alleged gun craziness.

Then when I called this blatant illogic to your attention, you neglected to distance yourself from it, at least initially. That called your position into question. I'm glad to hear that you don't agree.

Police don't need to shoot wildly at unarmed, fleeing people. Police who shoot wildly at unarmed fleeing people cannot logically hide behind American gun rights. Only an extremely biased and illogical person—a rabid ideologue like the hack you quoted—would insult our intelligence by trying to make that claim.

I'm frankly somewhat embarrased to be refuting this nonsense; I'm surprised you would quote it.

You claimed to have stopped reading when you came across "draconian gun control" or similar language. Perhaps I should have ignored everything after "gun crazy."
