1,000 knock out attacks
- (minus) 1 Trayvon Martin
= (equals) Enhanced stand your ground laws
The tragic death of Trayvon gave the left the opportunity to manufacture a crisis whereby they could use their weapons of mass destruction (ie, MSNBC and CNN) to attack a wide range of self defense laws including stand your ground and the Second Amendment.
The common sense media responded by highlighting the ongoing trend of black-on-white violence. That move was effectively the shock and awe that proved armed self-defense is good policy.
Liberal Democrats, of course, don't care what's good for we the people. They only care what's good for them: Getting re-elected so they can line their pockets through cronyism.
Math, common sense, and goodness aside, the extreme left wing is pressing forward with an initiative to make up stuff to support their opposition to self defense laws. To that end they are requesting the Department of Justice come up with facts and figures that will support their position.
I wonder: If the liberal Democrats don't currently have data to support their opposition for self defense, why are they stubbornly adhering to that stance? It's as if they believe the world is flat in spite of the absence of data to support such a weird world view. Rather than suspect the world may not be flat after all, they are demanding the DOJ waste time and money concocting data that can be manipulated to support their flat-earth perspectives.
Not all Democrats are dumb and not all dumb people are Democrats, but there seems to be a growing body of evidence to support a genetic predisposition for people who lack abstract thinking skills to align themselves with the party that prides itself in making their mascot an ass.
