More Evidence Gun Control is a Projection Problem

8/8/16 CBS Pittsburgh:
Cleveland.com reports 45-year-old Darnell Hall has been charged with felonious assault. He appeared Saturday in Cleveland Municipal Court, where his bond was set at $15,000.
 The July 25 shooting at Winston’s Bar in Cleveland came after the two men started arguing about the presidential election. Police say Hall left the bar, returned and opened fire, striking the 60-year-old man once in the leg.
 But at Saturday’s hearing, defense attorney Harvey Bruner said the bar owner tried to grab Hall’s gun, which caused the gun to fire one shot.
 Bruner said the 60-year-old man had said Republican Donald Trump would be a good president. Hall disagreed.
Projection:
Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves whileattributing them to others. 
Hence the Democratic belief that most people can't be trusted with guns, especially right-wing gun nuts.
