Why is it baffling?lol It's baffling to me that you got so much likes for that.
Noah Feldman: Think the Kenosha shooting case is simple? It isn't, because of the gun Kyle Rittenhouse brought with himWhen gun rights get involved, the law tends to depart radically from common sense, the column says.tulsaworld.com
The upshot is that Rittenhouse’s self-defense arguments may well go to a jury; and it’s not at all impossible that a jury might acquit him, except on the illegal underage possession of firearms charge. If that happens, the law on the books will have more or less been followed. But the gravitational pull of the right to bear arms will have made a mockery of our aspiration for the laws to make common sense. When there are guns involved, common sense goes out the window.
Also, the tulsaworld article's point is very true, when guns are involved...common sense goes out the window. If you post the rest of the article, he points out that possessing the weapon itself creates the situation where the shooter can just claim he thought someone was going to take his gun and shoot him with it, which basically means he can go around shooting anyone he *thinks* will take his gun and shoot him. Our protection of certain gun owner's goes way out of common sense territory.
it's clear they felt empowered to do whatever, egg'd on by guns and police encouragement.
Both Rittenhouse and Dominick black should see jail time for their illegal gun activities, on top of other charges as well.
Look how much effort we put into white gun rights.
edit: In my intarweb travels this morning, I found this:
