The Ahmaud Arbery case has lit up the news. It’s about the only story besides COVID-19 that seems to be getting any traction anywhere. That means we’re likely to see all kinds of insane stories trying to link the case to people’s pet issues. Of course, those who are primarily focused on race issues are making the case all about race. Those who look at crime are making it about crime–though, in fairness, these folks are absolutely right.
For anti-gunners, though, they have to make it about guns. They have to make it all about the evils of the Second Amendment.
That’s what one opinion writer tried to do, arguing that guns and racism are a deadly combination.
