That was really weak and less that truthful but I would expect no less from the left. Try and do better next time.
BTW, If you're going to call me a liar, do it. Grow a pair, and don't hide behind all this "right, left" bullsh!t.

You don't know a damned thing about me. I thing abortion should be legal, and the 2nd amendment should remain intact. I think that when a protest turns into a riot, martial law should be declared, and looters, arsonists, and thugs, should be shot.

That still didn't make it Kyle Rittenhouse' job, no matter what went down..

Link please to any capital cop being murdered by a Jan. 6 protester. Meanwhile capital cops murdered two female protesters that day.
That was so cool when that biddy got blown away going through the door . Best part of the show, IMO.

BTW, how are things in Alaska? (or maybe Moscow), Are you still recounting votes from the presidential election?

Are you saying US citizens don't have a right to defend themselves because that last sentence makes it look that way.

You apparently can't read, among your other faults. I said that stand your ground is legit. But you can't purposefully put yourself in the middle of a riot with an AR-15, and claim "self defense" either.

It's two entirely different concepts. if someone is trying to come into your house for any nefarious purpose, by all means, blow them away. You have my blessing.

So you're saying that there's only certain places that a US citizen who's legally armed has the right to defend himself.

Well, try to think of it this way; if you traveled 20 miles to a place where an unarmed person told you he was waiting to rob you, and you summarily shot him, that's murder.

If you were walking down the street minding your own business, and someone tried to rob you and you shot him (or her), that's self defense.

The finer points of this discussion seem to be bypassing you. Whether that's on purpose or accidentally, remains to be determined.

In the strictest sense, "self defense" attaches when all other remedies are exhausted or unavailable.

Self defense is just that ... self defense.
