to back up their whacked out ideas about stuff
  1. Cars kill more people than guns, so why don't we outlaw cars?
  2. Pooping is a natural thing and I don't do that in public, so why should I have to see you breastfeeding in public?
  3. The Bible says marriages are between one man & one woman, so that must be the only way God approves of it.
  4. Donald Trump is a great businessman, and the United States is basically a giant business, so he'd make a great president.
  5. Criminals don't abide by laws anyway, so we definitely don't need new laws.
