I recently had a conversation with a member of the National Rifle Association regarding Eric Frein, the man currently in the woods who shot two policemen.
M: So, what is your reaction to Eric Frein?
N: Eric Frein is a man who is simply exercising his rights to live in the forest and fend for himself.
M: But, he did kill a cop?
N: Any member of the NRA has the Constitutional right to defend himself against authority seeking to take his rights away.
M: But, he killed a policeman, is that a Constitutional right?
N: If you check the Second Amendment it clearly says any God fearing red blooded American has a right to defend himself.
M: Are you saying that criminals have a right to defend themselves against police?
N: It is one thing when some crazy black dude threatens a policeman, and another when a decent Christian white man simply wants to live in the forest.
M: So, Eric Frein is now a hero?
N: All we are saying is that the facts of this situation are still unclear. Did Police threaten an innocent man, and he defended himself is the question?
M: Oh well, another hero for the NRA against oppressive government!
