Philando Castile Should Be the NRA's Perfect Cause Celebre.

Philando Castile received his permit to carry a firearm from the Hennepin
County Sheriffs Office on June 4, 2015. A year later, Castile had a gun in
his pocket when a Minnesota police officer named Jeronimo Yanez pulled him
over and shot him dead. According to dashcam footage, Yanez decided to
open fire after Castile told him, truthfully and calmly, that he had a gun
on him. During a three-week-long trial that ended Friday in an acquittal,
Yanez testified that he shot Castile because he believed Castile was
reaching for his weapon and therefore presented an imminent threat to the
officers life.

.



The jurys decision to acquit Yanez, who had been charged with
second-degree manslaughter and dangerous discharge of a firearm, left
Castiles loved ones angry and heartbroken, sparked a 1,500-person protest
in St. Paul, and provoked a profound outpouring of grief on social media.

.

Staying conspicuously silent on the Yanez verdict so far is an
organization that can typically be counted on to offer extreme and
uncompromising advocacy on behalf of licensed American gun owners: the
National Rifle Association. As of Saturday afternoon, the NRA had issued
no statement addressing the verdict, its pugnacious chief spokesman Wayne
LaPierre had not been quoted in any media stories about it, and an email
from Slate requesting comment had not received a response. For those who
remember the aftermath of Castiles death, this should come as no surprise:
The NRA was almost completely silent then, too, putting out a tepid
statement only after coming under intense pressure from some of its
members. As was widely noted at the time, whoever wrote the statementmost
likely LaPierre himselfcouldnt even bring himself to mention Philando
Castiles name.

.

The groups most fiercely held belief is supposed to be that law-abiding
citizens shouldnt be burdenedlet alone killed in cold bloodby repressive
agents of the government just because they want to protect themselves and
exercise their Second Amendment rights. Castile should be a martyr for the
NRA, while Yanezwho reached for the holster of his service weapon as soon
as Castile mentioned he was armedshould be its bogeyman.

.

It feels banal to even say it out loud: If Castile had been white instead
of black, the NRA would have been rallying behind him and his family since
the moment of his death, and fundraising off his memory for the rest of
time.
