Says 'it's Americans buying guns due to their racial animosity stoked by widespread protests'

It's you folks who live no-where near the murders buying guns reacting to peaceful protests that are the cause of the murders.

Also says it's 'anxiety over the effects of the covid-19 pandemic'

Their lies would be downright laughable if they didn’t wield power in shaping public opinion.

So all the people doing the violent crimes, including shooting law enforcement officers were wearing MAGA hats? Don’t think so.

freedom of speech does not include falsely screaming incendiary “fire” in a crowded public theatre

maybe
freedom of the press does not include falsely screaming incendiary lies in our public square

its made much more dangerous yet by the trend towards monopolistic market control over our national political news with most of the available outlets (TV/radio/internet even) controlled by far, far leftist/commie type special interests

Anybody got a link to the WaPo article. I’ve looked at the WaPo and can’t find it.

I am not holding up my end of the premise. I just purchased a Glock 22 but have not perpetrated any violence. I will be at my local range tomorrow to get some practice with my pistol. Will that count? I will commit violence upon the target...

“Americans purchased millions more guns than usual this spring ... That gun-buying binge is ASSOCIATED with a significant increase in gun violence across the United States.”

Ice cream consumption increases in the summer. Violent crimes increase in the summer. Ergo, consumption of ice cream is associated with an increase in violent crime.

See how easy it is to be stupid? WaPo could teach a master-class on stupid.
