You are mistaken if you interpreted my essay as in any way advocating or promoting rioting as a form of protest. I was merely pointing out that the citizens of this country have a right to protest. How one chooses to exercise this right is above and beyond my or your control. With your logic, then, the Second Amendment giving citizens the right to bear arms is, thereby, promoting mass shootings of schools, malls, movie theaters, etc. Shall we take that right away because some people choose to use it for evil?
