    I wouldn't say calling us racists is a NEW low. More like a reoccurring low.

    Trick questions to make gun owners look racist. We have a urban problem along with a cultural problem and all of a sudden because I said what I just said and own guns I am now a racist. A new definition for a new generation......

    Let's see they make up the questions they determine what the answers "really" mean and they get the results they wanted. How about that?

    Maybe we should counter with a video of "What Liberals and the Mentally Defective have in Common"

    Boy, they sure use a lot of disclaimers... "also happen to be" "may more likely identify"...

    That said, they did try to appear to be fair... and haven't "unpacked" the study yet... promising more on the resource page wherever that is.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    Quick, pick one. Are you a disarmed sheeple or an armed racist?

    I guess it's our faults that the majority of people in the corrections and acts of violence are infact and do happen to be black. I also love that because I happen to own a gun it's a symbol that I am a slave owner. Never mind that my family came from France in the 1800's to Canada and then moved to the US. Guess cuz I happen to have a light tone to my skin I or my family is the cause of the slavery...what total garbage. Stupid people.

    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    I like the ending commentary: "I am a little suspicious of the conclusions drawn from the survey but we will no more when we unpack the survey"

    To paraphrase: This study might be complete bull poop but we will report about the most extreme conclusions drawn from it anyway

    You really like to aggravate those of us with an IQ above that of a muskrat with these Huffington Post articles.

    You beat me to it. "We've" supposedly been racists for a long time now. Especially if we happen to dislike the current president's politics.

    It's Huffington Puffington Pustule. It's all they've got. They are pandering to the their intellectually dishonest base.

    I knew that HP wouldnt be popular here, with lots of people, and started to address that in the OP. But HP happens to be a BIG DEAL in America. I mean bigger than lots might think.

    Sort of like how liberals might not want to admit that Fox News is also a big deal. Regardless, HP has been all over "gun control", and in general, their readers are all for it, so I thought Id give everyone a glimpse of something that they otherwise might remain unaware of.
