Another article full of lies, or at the very least, misleading innuendo.
It's a cheap, and even a racist shot to attempt to use Martin Luther King to smear the pro-RKBA effort. Of course the author conveniently writes without any knowledge of what Dr. King had to say about self-defense. In his speech titled Nonviolence: The Only Road to Freedom, given on May 4, 1966, Dr. King said:
Obviously Dr. King was fighting the evils of that day on a different plain than mere physical protection, and that was the point of this particular speech. But as a part of this fight, he assumed it was normal, beyond question, that one would protect their own homes and by implication, families and loved ones, from that violence.There are many people who very honestly raise the question of self-defense. This must be placed in perspective. It goes without saying that people will protect their homes. This is a right guaranteed by the Constitution and respected even in the worst areas of the South. But the mere protection of one's home and person against assault by lawless night riders does not provide any positive approach to the fears and conditions which produce violence.
Later, the author assigns the nefarious motive of impeding background checks to the bill that prohibits fingerprinting. This is nonsense. Technology has merely surpassed the need for fingerprinting, so why spend the money, and more importantly, why subject citizens to disparate requirements throughout the state to obtain the same CHP?
As usual, the RT is full of trash. When the truth doesn't play your tune, I guess you have to resort to whatever will.
