"People who are the most vulnerable in society benefit the most from having the option to be able to protect themselves," says John Lott, the author of More Guns, Less Crime. He adds that women, the elderly, and "poor blacks who live in high crime areas" are disproportionately deterred from getting firepower when waiting periods are extended and fees rise. I'm not convinced.
So as a black woman surrounded by friendly white gun-owners, why am I nervous?

Because you're a sheeple and have been conditioned that a) ****** is out to get your and b) guns are bad?

Because, Titania, some segments of society have been conditioned to think of everything in terms of race instead of seeing people as what they are, rather than a color.

Although there may one come a day when we will judge others by the content of their character, rather than by the color of their skin, Titania will not be among those in the forefront of that little civil rights movement.

She must be afraid of white men. Heck, it sounds like 4 nice men just asked her out. I don't know that anything can help her see a different point of view regarding men who believe in gun rights.

Steve Goode is the fourth man in the hotel who offers to take me to a gun range.

Okay, this is the periodical Mother Jones, the paper for Useful Idiots of the Progressive Left. Of course it is going to be anti-Constitutional and against guns.

I've described myself as former military, I've described myself as Libertarian.

I don't think I've ever felt in necessary to describe myself as first by chromosomal composition and then by the color of my eyes, or hair, or skin as Who I Am. External factors such as that don't even enter into my self-view. The fact that someone Does first look at themselves in those terms gives me pause.

Sounds like she may have a personal problem that she needs to deal with.

To ad to the racism discussion, could you imagine if a white guy wrong on the internet that he gets uncomfortable everytime he is around black men that look a certain way or have cell phones on their hip, or whatever they have on them? You'd be called a racist.

She is the one that brought up that they were all white gun owners.

Fact Checking? She sure thinks alot of her regurgitation of Brady talking points.

Then she jumps the shark by thinking gun owners are racist because are white. What a crock of poop.

She could have at least explained the cultural hesitancy of Black American's to be visibly tied to guns (think Bull Connor, KKK, Atlanta Race Riot, and many other examples of the government landing hard on Black gun owners).

But alas, she's running the Liberal playbook .... "everyone who I don't agree with is a racist. Woe is me having to fight off all these racists who want to teach me how to defend myself."

Guns don't hate people! People hate people!

She might be but I couldn't get past the racist statement to find out.
Actually, the article was fairly well written and wasn't peppered with the usual anti-gun nonsense I find in many. She actually made an effort to accurately reflect what the pro-gun crowd was saying, instead of just calling loons or the such.

I am sorry but she cannot be THAT afraid of guns if she is willing to walk into a GUN convention. At the very least she should, at that point, realize how irrational her "fear" is.

Of course, I could be asking too much of a liberal.

It's a training issue. Too much exposure to movies and TV, not enough exposure to actual responsible gun owners.

Plus there's a disconnect in her logic. Assuming her statistic was true, which is in doubt, but even giving her that, what does a suburban non-black family having a lower chance of being a victim of violent crime than an urban black family have anything to do with that family's right to protect themselves?

Using her logic, each person who goes and applies for a GWL will get asked a set of questions about demographics. Then, the lady behind the counter will calculate your odds of being a victim of crime based on those demographics, and if the statistical chance is too low, sorry, no guns for you. :screwy:

Not all liberals are like her, and I'm working on my fellow liberals as much as I can.

:roll:
Because shes a closet racist?????
I used to work with a guy who was the most openly racist person I've ever met, and I've met quite a few! Finally, in a meeting, someone (actually, it was my brother) called him on it. He appeared shocked. I think he truly was. He then said he couldn't be a racist because he was black!

As for this woman, much like ol' Roosevelt, I don't think the word "closet" was really needed...

It's the ones who want guns for self-defense I'm concerned with.
