Controversial Topic: Race, Gender and RKBA
Awright, folks, I have conducted my own pretty unscientific survey based on profiles and postings.
And what I have discovered is that most of us here (but by no means all) are white males. Thankfully we're not all just real close to the same age.
WHY is that, when members of other ethnic groups and members of the fairer sex are far more often crime victims?
My assumptions, which are apparently flawed, are: (1) that people with the most incentive to arm themselves are more likely to do so; and, (2) people with such an incentive are similarly likely to be members of internet gun boards.
Are there any other threads on this? Has there been academic research on this, studies or whatnot? Does the NRA or JPFO have light to shed here?
It could have something to do with access to resources (including information) or traditional gender roles or even (gulp) repression. But, again, I don't know and I'd like to find out more.
I'd appreciate the thougtful thoughts of anyone on this one, and I don't want to have to explain that one further, 'cause if I do the mods will quite justifiably shut this one down and exile me to less civil boards.
