[su_right_ad]You see, if only the government didn’t regulate how cigarettes are sold, Eric Garner would be alive today.
Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt has an explanation for the death of Eric Garner, who was choked by a New York police officer apprehending him for selling loose cigarettes on the sidewalk: “socialism breeds death.”
Discussing the assassination of two police officers in Brooklyn last month with talk show host Steve Deace yesterday, Pratt noted that the gunman had mentioned Garner’s death in social media posts before the shooting, implying that the officers’ murder was also part of the death wreaked by New York’s “socialism.”…
Had New York politicians had not been so bodaciously greedy to have passed such astronomically draconian tax laws so that a guy can actually sell a single cigarette in the black market as a way to make money and I guess at least some kind of a living, and it so bothered the merchants that were selling at required lawful higher prices that they dropped the dime on the guy. And the cop wasn’t just trying to enforce stupid laws because he was a jerk, there had been an actual complaint filed about the guy selling loosies, namely single cigarettes loose from the pack.
That’s how bizarre it is in a socialist city like New York City in a socialist state like New York. Socialism breeds death.
