Was the NRA right to keep silent on Philando Castile?

On this week’s episode of “40 Acres & a Fool,” Cam Edwards commended the National Rifle Association for staying out of the debate over a Minnesota police officer acquitted for shooting a man licensed to carry during a traffic stop.

The NRA hasn’t commented on Philando Castile’s death since an initial statement about the “troubling” report from Minnesota last summer.

It’s understandable that the NRA wants to stay out of the discussion when political discourse has become so toxic, Cam asserted. People should stop being constantly outraged unless they can actually do something constructive.

“We’re so angry at each other right now; we’re just at each other’s throats,” he said.

As an example, Cam talked about the gunman who targeted the GOP congressional baseball team last week. Based on his social media presence, James T. Hodgkinson appeared to be a progressive activist with a hatred of Republicans; he injured five people in the shooting, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. He reportedly carried a kill list with the names of Republican lawmakers.
