Tickle a prog and you’ll find a bigot.
Sometimes you don’t even have to tickle them to discover their prejudice.
Bigotry against guns is like bigotry against races: It’s a learned behavior.
The Daily Kos is doing their best to promote bigotry against guns in Mr. Jim Anton’s hate-filled screed titled, “GUNS, GOONS, AND GEORGIA”.
In it, he calls Georgia’s new Safe Carry Protections Act “obscene” because he might have to see someone armed with a gun in his daily travels.
What’s more, he claims that you or I could carry a pulse rifle (see above screen capture) into church.
Where can I buy a pulse rifle, because I’ve been wanting one since hearing about it in the Terminator.
He goes on to profile the people of Georgia who elected the politicians who passed that bill he deems “obscene”.
I went home and did some research. According to the latest U.S. census, Georgia has one of the highest poverty rates in America. It is in the bottom quartile when it comes to graduating students from high school, and is very low in achievement in higher education. It is also in the worst quartile when it comes to cigarette use, obesity and teen pregnancy.
Notably it was already one of the most dangerous states in the nation even before Guns Everywhere was passed – 9th highest in firearm homicide deaths in the nation
So, Mr. Anton is suggesting if you like guns you’re likely a obese high school dropout with a low IQ, who smokes and gets pregnant as a teenager.
Mr. Anton’s comparison better fits the problematic segment of inner-city Chicago than the average gun owner.
