I have not justified anything. Please stop saying that I am.It does not matter how the see THEMSELVES, its how society views their actions.
Next you will justify that its ok for them to murder someone because they had a watch they wanted, or an ipod.
It is not perfectly rational, nor is it normal. It is abnormal behavior, just because there are a bunch of people with abnormal tendencies living in a particular demographic does not make it normal behavior. What about all the peeps in the hood who do NOT murder because someone called them a disparaging name? Are they crazy because they did not act like everyone else?
I am trying to have a conversation about a difficult topic that may make us look at things from someone else's point of view.
I couldn't for one minute fathom carrying a gun on my hip at all times, but I've tried to look at this from your point of view and understand that you have had experiences that have caused you to want to carry a gun at all times. I'm asking that instead of writing a whole lot of people off as crazy, you try to see how their experiences have caused them to act the way they do.
How can we change their environment/way of thinking so that they don't shoot each other up on a daily basis over petty things? To do that, we have to start where they're at. We might not like it, but they're americans too.
