Socialism Art Nature
A friend says:

After the school shooting right-wingers were actually saying that teachers should have been armed and that would have prevented the massacre. After the movie theater shooting right-wingers were saying that if the audience had guns with them it could have been prevented. Ever notice that when a black youth gets shot they don’t say that he should have been armed cause he could have prevented it?
I’m anti-state, so I don’t agree with the disarming of the people and allowing the state to have a monopoly of violence, however the point here is that right-wingers control the framing of the debate by making it either pro-gun or anti-gun, when they aren’t actually pro-gun, historically they opposed allowing the Black Panther Party to be armed, and they never speak up for victims of racist murder saying that they should have been armed, so let’s not fall into the pro-gun/anti-gun trap, let’s have a more complex dialog about WHO the right-wing wants armed (police and racist white militia types like the Minute Men) and why we should oppose them and why oppressed people have the RIGHT to self-defense “by any means necessary”.
