“Well I should reckon! it started thirty years ago, or som’ers along there. There was trouble bout something and then a lawsuit to settle it; and the suit went agin one of the men, and so he up and shot the man that won the suit—which he would naturally do, of course. Anybody would.”
~Buck Grangerford from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Use the text to support a inference about how Buck Grangerford feels about the rule of law in society. Arguments should be written in complete sentences.
Buck believes that the Grangerfords are above the law. He thinks it's right to murder someone. Buck says, "so he up and shot the man that won the suit--which he would naturally do, of course. Anybody would." The way Buck has been brought up has made him believe that it's acceptable to shoot people. In reality, he only thinks this because of how he grew up; he might have a different opinion if he was raised differently. He is so casual about murder claiming that he would have killed the man too that it seems like he whole-heartedly believes that it's okay to ignore the law. ~Zoey
