Could you lose your gun rights as US refugee population grows?
Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2015
Yes, gloats Adam Winkler at the Washington Post a few days ago. He says that the decline in the white American population that is happening before our very eyes will inevitably erode the numbers of those (mostly older, white, rural people he says) who strongly defend their second amendment rights. The growth in minority populations, he predicts, will be dooming the NRA’s chances of surviving for too much longer.
Obama is changing America by changing the people! That is a fact! Refugee resettlement is one of the myriad immigration programs designed to accomplish that. If Hillary follows him in office, the process will continue unimpeded.
I had to laugh, although it isn’t really funny, but the good professor Winkler mentions “whites” five times in this article—white voters, white rural, less educated, in sneering tones (he is really saying white hicks). Everyone else is “minorities”—no mention of blacks or browns—just Asians, Hispanics, etc. Why can’t we be called something other than our skin color?
We have a proud European heritage, but we are relegated to being labelled simply as “whites” by the erudite Professor Winkler.
LOL! If we referred to ourselves as ‘whites’ that often we would be accused of being white supremacists!
The Washington Post:
The National Rifle Association’s days of being a political powerhouse may be numbered.
Why? The answer is in the numbers.
Support for, and opposition to, gun control is closely associated with several demographic characteristics, including race, level of education and whether one lives in a city. Nearly all are trending forcefully against the NRA.
The core of the NRA’s support comes from white, rural and relatively less educated voters. This demographic is currently influential in politics but clearly on the wane. While the decline of white, rural, less educated Americans is generally well known, less often recognized is what this means for gun legislation.
Polls show that whites tend to favor gun rights over gun control by a significant margin (57 percent to 40 percent). Yet whites, who comprise 63 percent of the population today, won’t be in the majority for long. Racial minorities are soon to be a majority, and they are the nation’s strongest supporters of strict gun laws.
I’m repeating my appeal from earlier in the month—young patriots please have more babies! And, if you needed another reason to demand a halt to mass migration into America, this is it!
One more thing, Professor Winkler begins his piece with a mention of the Oregon shooting—but no mention of the fact that the shooter was a brown guy!
