The lion afraid of the mouse? I don’t think so. The Federalist published this headline on Monday, August 29th., “”Gun Owners Are Racist, According To Academics Using Bad Science“.
White people own guns — and oppose gun-control legislation — because they are racist and fear black people. Two new studies advance this dangerous narrative building among our academic elites. While such rhetoric is perhaps unsurprising among political pundits or celebrities, otherwise serious academics are now ascribing racist motives to gun ownership and opposition to gun control. These studies are not only based on a slew of bigoted assumptions, but also bad science.
Interestingly enough, just last month, National Public Radio ran a story on how black people are the fastest growing group of gun owners. If gun ownership is a product of white people being racist, then this is quite curious.”
The National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, centrally based in Harrison, Arkansas, Thomas Robb was quoting saying, “Being racist has nothing to do with firearm ownership. The right to bear arms is our God-Given right, protected by the Second Amendment of our Constitution. Leftist Mainstream Media puts out this propaganda to help the government disarm law-abiding citizens. Our government knows exactly why our forefathers included the Second Amendment, and it causes fear to course through their veins. Now the idea that White people fear the black race does have some truth to it. Many White people do fear black people, I’m not one of them, but many do. It’s not because they’re black, it’s the attitude they carry, and the crimes they commit. Blacks are only 13% of American’s population, yet they commit over 50% of our crimes, so of course this causes fear among many White law-abiding citizens. If ‘purple’ people were 13% of our population, and they commited over 50% of our crime, then some would fear ‘purple’ people. Personally, when dealing with a race with the average IQ of 70, and they’re only 13% of our population, I have no fear of them, but I do arm myself when out and about.”
