Of all the liberties America was founded on, the Left hates the right to arms and self-defense the most. Never ever forget that folks. And never forget they will use every avenue to disarm us. Via Bob Owens
The Department of Justice announced earlier this week that they lacked any evidence to charge George Zimmerman with federal civil rights crimes for the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin, a fact completely unsurprising to those who have researched the tri-racial Zimmerman’s background and his diverse group of family and friends.
The inability to charge Zimmerman with crimes he didn’t commit seems to be infuriating to President Obama, and to out-going Attorney General Eric Holder:
Attorney General Eric Holder, during his final weeks in office, plans to ask Congress to lower the standard of proof in federal civil rights cases, a change that would make the federal government “a better backstop” against discrimination in cases like the deaths of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin, according to NBC News and POLITICO.
“We do need to change the law. I do think the standard is too high,” Holder told NBC News Thursday. “There needs to be a change with regard to the standard of proof.”
Holder said that between now and his departure, likely in early March when the Senate is expected to confirm Loretta Lynch as his successor, he will call for a lower standard of proof for civil rights crimes, he told POLITICO. Such a change would make it easier for the federal government to bring civil rights charges in the future, the news organization reports.
There you are gun owners. Eric Holder, and no doubt his successor wishes to lower the standards of proof to go after those who use lethal force in self-defense. And do not think they do not include police in this either. What this means is Holder wishes to make it easier to punish those that legally defended themselves. No matter if local or state charges were not filed. No matter if the shooting was ruled justified. No matter facts or evidence. None of that matters in the world of Social Justice. All that matters is dividing people, and discouraging gun ownership and self-defense. Reducing the burden of proof will lead to witch hunts that will punish Americans for no more than exercising the basic right of self-defense.
Remember this, to the Left the ends always justify the means. And the end they seek is eradicating individualism and individual liberties.
