The title is simple. “Racial justice advocates arm themselves to keep the peace at Robert E. Lee statue,” the headline reads from the Richmond Times-Dispatch. It’s about those in the racial justice crowd milling about parts of Richmond while armed, ostensibly to protect themselves from being attacked.
While I’m sure I disagree with these folks on a great many things–probably revolving around the definition of “racial justice”–I support their right to keep and bear arms.
However, I can’t help but be caught a little off guard by how the story reads.
