Just found another article (click here to read), have to disagree with this guy. I can't believe that he would make a statement like this, "Largely rural, conservative whites are protecting a gun-loving lifestyle because they care more about it than they care about the loss of black lives to gun violence in urban areas" to explain why I want to own firearms.

Perhaps I enjoy the security of knowing that I can protect myself and my family, perhaps I enjoy the simplicity and power of these mechanical objects, perhaps I enjoy the beauty and history of my M91/30.

But who knows, maybe underneath it all is just my feeling that I want my toys and could care less if a bunch of gang bangers kill each other - I guess I will leave it up to Mr. Milloy to decipher and broadcast my inner feelings on this matter - he sure seems to think he understands 'us white folk'.

What do you think?

Superb article. All should read it & if you haven't yet read John Lott you should get his book More Guns Less Crime--I need to as well. Great article, great read. Thanks

This is the arrogance of the statist. It's pretty consistent throughout history.

There is one quote I thought interesting in the article:
"In my honest opinion, I'm not so concerned about the prevalence of guns," said Kenny Barnes, founder of a D.C.-based anti-gun violence campaign called Guns Aside. "Violence isn't the issue; it's a symptom. It's the result of too many dysfunctional households, failing schools, drug and alcohol abuse and a saturation of music that promotes self-destruction."
Hmmmm... I'm suspicious of groups that are "anti-violence" but this quote makes one wonder if this guy actually has part of a brain.

The author, is, however, a complete dolt for thinking that we're the problem, and that for government to fix the inner-city ***** we hicks in Utah have to be disarmed first. [sarcasm] Yep. We're the one thing standing in everybody else's way. If only we were compassionate, government could use its guns to fix everybody's problems. [/sarcasm]

Reason and intelligence have never been the hallmarks of statists of any stripe, so there's nothing to be surprised about.
