Re: The Unholy Alliance between Gun Safety Groups and Police Protesters

Gun safety control proponents are more or less progressives who are in the same camp as leftists who accuse the police of misconduct and abuse due to racism, rather than flaws within the institution itself, particularly following the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and the choking death of Eric Garner in New York City.

It’s hard to not notice the irony of their position.

So on one hand, we have leftist police protesters claiming that law enforcement officers abuse their authority and violate the rights of black citizens – unlike libertarians, however, they do not believe such institutions should be privatized, nor do they ever discuss police being able to carry and use firearms. On the other hand, we have gun control advocates who believe these officers should have the exclusive privilege of owning firearms while citizens, including the ones they abuse, are not responsible enough to own them.

The only conclusion a rational person can derive from such a seemingly contradictory stance is that they don’t have a problem with police using violence against citizens; they believe the violence is targeted at the wrong people. For them, police are a necessary adjunct for enforcing their political agenda, an agenda they know would be opposed by people who have guns. This is why while condemning police brutality against certain groups of people in one breath they make the ownership of guns by certain groups of people look scary and anti-social.

    Good observation. These people never follow their ideas to their logical conclusions. But i guess if they did then they wouldnt be statists. I havent heard an actual solution posed by the protestors yet. Although if i had to guess im assuming it would be more regulation.
