Just realized this contradiction today. Most liberals are supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement and are kind of anti-police while at the same time they want to take away everyone's right to own guns. Is that really what you want to do, have the police being the only ones with guns?

Ultimately, gun banners want to take those away as well, and "de-militarize" the police. Unless, of course those cops are federal cops. The federal government, in many of their opinions, is the only legitimate government and should have all the power.

Only if the police belong to me.

No. We just want the Second Amendment rewritten. That's the only thing you can do at this point with this many guns in our country. There is nothing else that both parties will agree on currently that will make a difference in gun violence unless we rewrite the Second Amendment. And we would have to do that together as a country and agree on something that makes more sense than the one we currently have.

The problem is not that the police are armed.

It's that their training produces an antagonistic relationship to the public; that an officer can make bad choices, if they believe they must control the situation, and believe they have lost that control; and that police are seldom held accountable when things go wrong.

And in case you missed it: Philando Castile legally owned and carried a gun. Not only did it fail to protect him, he was shot because of it.

There is a lot to be said about the British approach to policing. I just don't think we need to ban guns to implement it.

Just who are the so called liberals who want only the police to have guns?

Without any evidence to support your claim this seems like just more of the worst sort of intentionally perverting the position of those who disagree with you just to demonize and straw man them.

No, liberals do not "want to take away everyone's right to own guns"

When you start with a false premise, you simply end up looking foolish.

Im a social liberal, but a staunch 2nd amendment defender. Not all liberals want to infringe on Constitutional Rights.

But many of them do, they're called Obama Supporters.

If thats what you believe so be it, I am not here to change your mind. Merely stating not all liberals want to ban guns, which is a fact.

Please, read other sources besides the NRA' s press releases to obtain a 360 degree view on that statement in your last post. Knowledge is power, conjecture breeds ignorance.

What's wrong with being an Obama supporter? Is your chief and commander and twice elected. Do you agree that there's no way to make an educated assessment of A current president until years after they've served when you can actually see the effects of what they put in place?

I would reference this book that Bob Schaeffer wrote on Ronald Reagan after his presidency and got it all wrong on Gorbachev and the Soviet Union.

The Libbos want an oppressive federal police force with unrestricted authority and abolish state and local law enforcement. It's stupid and will become a self inflicted wound, but that's what they want.

Is this the definition of hyperbole?

You can't live in California and believe the liberals want to allow civilians to own firearms.

you will be a great deal less paranoid when you realize how false your post is. The question is why are you so into lies.
