Sorry, all, but he did not
say the words all the blogs are headlining with. He did not
call all or any gun owners racist. The headline
of this thread and the headlines from which it came are misleading and irresponsible and do not tell the whole story.
And as usual, too many people are reading the headlines and opinions that spring forth from the creators of said headlines and not listening to the
actual words in context to gain or get the real perspective before they fly off the handle and become indignant and irate..
He was having a discussion on a divisive subject and asking a valid question and, no matter how ineptly, was trying to find an answer in his mind.
Like we all do.
And what he actually said was that we typically see criminals a certain way....along racial and class lines.
You don't have to agree with that, and if you don't tell him that. But answer to and discuss what he really said, not what you infer from it and got
your hackles up about.
Is he really wrong about what he actually said? Don't we typcially see criminals this way and rarely think of the criminal as the girl or boy next
door? Isn't this evidenced time and time again by our both our typcially "shocked" reactions when it is or when a crime occurs? Be honest with
yourself, not me.
Next blogosphere drama!
I'd like to add that these are places he mentioned with very few murders might just have very few murders because there are guns there.
And yes I
own a gun. Or two. Or three.
