HOUSTON — A week after the election of Barack Obama, gun buyers across the country are voting with their feet, flocking to gun stores to stock up on assault rifles, handguns and ammunition.
Some say they are worried that the incoming Obama administration will attempt to reimpose the ban on assault weapons that expired in 2004. Others fear the loss of their right to own handguns. A few say they are preparing to protect themselves in the event of a race war. [WTF? I haven’t heard this anywhere]
One expert sees a darker motive driving some post-election gun purchasers.
“Why are white people buying assault weapons?” said Ben Agger, a sociology professor at the University of Texas at Arlington who wrote a book about the Virginia Tech slayings. “I almost hate to say it, but there is a deep-seated fear of the armed black man, because Obama now commands the military and other instruments of the justice system. They are afraid Obama will exact retribution for the very deep-seated legacy of slavery.”
I’ve never heard so much Bullsh*t, Ben Agger. Did you think for one second that we’re afraid of what the man means to do to law abiding gun owners, not the color of the man himself?
Good God, is it just me or is it always the Left that focuses on, and is obsessed with, race? As Sebastian said:
They will never give us the courtesy of admitting that our actions might be rational. Nope. We’re just f**king nuts, and that’s about all there is to it. Just those crazy, cousin humping, racist rednecks acting up against. Tsk tsk.
Chew on this, those in favor of “common sense” gun control (whatever that vacuous definition means): gun control itself has RAAAACIST origins:
In much the same way, gun control has historically been a tool of racism, and associated with racist attitudes about black violence. Similarly, many gun control laws impinge on that most fundamental of rights: self-defense. Racism is so intimately tied to the history of gun control in America that we should regard gun control aimed at law-abiding people as a “suspect idea,” and require that the courts use the same demanding standards when reviewing the constitutionality of a gun control law, that they would use with respect to a law that discriminated based on race.
Self defense is a basic human right.
