Fact, not open to debate!
Now a NY Daily New report states that gun owners are most likely to be racist, as is labeled the Tea Party.
The headline reads: "U.S. whites exhibiting higher levels of racism more likely to be gun owners: study"
The report by researchers at Australia’s Monash University and Britain’s Manchester University looked at how racism among whites and gun ownership is linked. The report used data from the American National Election Study and scored people based on their ‘symbolic racism,’ which is used to measure anti-black sentiments. Besides keeping a gun at home, they were also more likely to oppose gun control reforms.I think this racist bit is way overblown, but the left won't let go if it, especially among white liberals. Keep crying wolf, well you know the story...
In my life in the service, 20 years plus, I didn't have time for such things. Minority, woman, gay, lesbian, or whatever worked for me at one time or another. Yes, there was gays in the service way back then! Could care less. The bottom line was; did they come to work each shift (and on time), did the job to the best of there abilities, and have integrity when they didn't think anyone was watching? Happy to have them on board if that was there work ethic! Even had a declared witch working for me at one point. One of the better workers among her peer group and someone I could count on to get the job done.
So, as a white gun owner who is against further gun regulations, for less government, and a conservative I failed the real world racism test, as I think most gun owners would!

Racism and guns go together.
That’s the finding of an international study released Thursday that says the two are linked. More specifically, odds are greater that a racist white American also keeps a gun at home and opposes gun control regulations.
The conclusion wasn’t too surprising for researchers at Australia’s Monash University and Britain’s Manchester University, which sought to better understand American gun culture.
“There had already been research showing that ... blacks are more likely to be shot, so we thought there must be something happening between the concept of being black and some whites wanting guns,” Monash researcher Kerry O’Brien said in an email to the Daily News.
He also found that political leanings and geography play a part into firearm ownership.
“It is particularly noteworthy that the relationship between symbolic racism and the gun-related outcomes was maintained in the presence of conservative ideologies, political affiliation, opposition to government control and being from a southern state, which are otherwise strong predictors of gun ownership and opposition to gun reform
