Philando Castile And 2nd Amendment Controversy

Many call Philando Castile the Second Amendment Martyr, though NRA is still withholding its comments.

Today Black Lives Matter protesters disrupted the Twin Cities Pride parade on Sunday. They came to express their outrage over the absurd acquittal of Officer Jeronimo Yanez.

You all know the tragic story but we are here to touch upon one extremely urgent issue. Philando Castile had a gun on him, he had it legally and he informed Yanez about it.  “Sir, I have to tell you that I do have a firearm on me,” Castile said after handing Yanez his insurance card Yanez interrupted him, saying, “OK, don’t reach for it, then.”

Jeffrey Noble, an expert on police procedure later testified that Yanez’s actions were “objectively unreasonable” and he had “absolutely no reason” to be afraid of Philando Castile. So, what do we have here… A man owning a gun was shot just because he was carrying it.

A day after the shooting, the NRA stated, “the reports from Minnesota are troubling and must be thoroughly investigated.” It also claimed that “the NRA will have more to say once all the facts are known.” At the moment all the facts surrounding this matter are more than clear but NRA still remains silent though once they expressed their support to George Zimmerman quite promptly.  So we strongly believe that in their point of view, the Second Amendment works differently for Blacks and whites, which means it doesn’t work at all.
