Michael Moore says 90% of guns are owned by “scared” white people? Really. So, Michael you know that how? Did you do a survey, did you call 90% of scared white people and ask them? Let me guess you depended on a left wing, tin foil hat wearing, pollster with delusions of relevancy? Or mayhaps you again did as you are wont to do and pulled it out of your………….ear?
Even better is the remainder of the quote:
“Did you realize that over 90% of the guns in this country are owned by white people in the suburbs and in rural areas? Ninety-percent of our guns are not owned by African-Americans, hispanics, minority groups, they’re owned by white people. Now are these white people so afraid of out in the suburbs? Are they thinking little red head, freckle-faced Jimmy down the street is going to, you know, kill them? Mug them? I don’t think so. Are they afraid the guy next door is gonna break in and steal their t.v.? No, because they know the guy next door makes $50-60,000 a year. So poverty and racism the answer is pretty much the same answer for a lot of our other problems. (MSNBC-Ed show)
Of course they’re not worried about that kid in their area. They aren’t worried about their neighbors, they’re not even worried about a minority that might live down the street from them or go to school with their kids or work with them or their spouse. They are however worried about people who think it’s perfectly OK to break into your house, steal your stuff, rape your wife, mother, daughter or female house pet. They’re worried about people who think that because you work hard and you buy stuff and they sit around watching Jerry Springer and Jesse Jackson who tell them that you should “give ” them what you make because “they deserve it.” The color of their skin is NEVER the issue here. It’s not about race, it’s about criminals and what they’re willing to do to to get whatever it is they want. It’s about animals who prey on the old, the young and the infirm. It’s about the dregs of society.
Oh and where do criminals get their guns. The vast majority of them don’t buy them at gun shows or through a vendor or in pawn shops or on-line, because they can not pass a background check. They buy them from other criminals, who in come cases got them from our government (see Fast and Furious). They steal them (they are criminals after all).
So what percent is that gun ownership? The leftover 10%, I don’t thinks so. You should be glad so many “scared white people” have the guns that would find their way into the hands of even more criminals. The black community would be extinct if any more guns made it into the hands of young black men who are responsible for 93% of the murders of members of the black community. With those kinds of numbers I wouldn’t be agitating for gun laws, I’d be agitating for sterilization. At least until some reality can be injected into the horrific state of the black family. Don’t get me wrong families all over, of all ethnic and racial stripe are endangered, just not in as horrific a state as the African American community which finds in 2011 that
72 percent of all births to black women, 66 percent to American Indian or Alaskan native women, and 53 percent to Hispanic women occurred outside of marriage, compared with 29 percent for white women, and 17 percent for Asian or Pacific Islander women.
These “scared white people” are also afraid of a government so far gone that it is trying to pass laws to take away the peoples right to defend themselves against those who would prey upon them. That this same government, whose responsibility it is to protect its citizens from enemies foreign or “domestic,” seeks to take away a citizens right to free speech, free association, freedom to practice their religion without interference as well. They are also afraid of a government that seeks to take away life, one of our elementary rights, from the unborn through abortion, the aged through rationed health care and anyone else, of any age, if they dare disagree with or protest the aims and actions of the government through drone strikes of American citizens on American soil (without a trial by jury as we have been promised in the Constitution).
Why are we afraid sir? Because of these incidences:
It took me about 5 minutes to goole these. The first one I knew about because one of my family members lived in the apartment complex where the brothers went to hide out. The data is out there and more than available.
Those of us who own firearms are tired of being afraid. Tired of watching families mourn. Tired of feeling unsafe no matter where we live or how we act. Tired of watching a justice department and system and government that reward failure and laziness and punishes success and effort. But more than that we are tired of people like you who have little grasp of reality, telling us how to live and what to do.
So I invite you to crawl back under the rock you slithered out from and let the rest of us protect the things that are so precious to us, our families. We’ll protect them from the criminals that want to harm them and we’ll protect them from those who’d encroach on our liberties and freedoms. It doesn’t take money to have integrity, nor does it take money to have character or a conscience. It does however take effort. There are plenty of folks with lots of money who have no redeeming qualities at all.
Just look in the mirror. I dare you.
