There are people claiming the riots are justified:
- Poll: 58% of Young, College-Educated Americans Say Riots Are Justified
- This Is CNN: Minneapolis Riots Just Like Boston Tea Party!
Apparently if you can’t get the change you want via peaceful means then riots and massive destruction of property, injuries, and death are part of the acceptable solution space.
If you happen to have someone make such a claim to you please ask them the nature and extent of the violence they would recommend for gun owners such that we can eliminate the oppressive laws we struggle with every day.
