Profiling wrong, unless you're profiling gun owners

There are 4 comments on the May 25, 2013, Examiner.com story titled Profiling wrong, unless you're profiling gun owners. In it, Examiner.com reports that:

Seattle Times readers are in something of a huff about a story running Saturday about a federal judge's ruling that Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Maricopa County deputies have been profiling Latinos "at the expense of fighting crime." Too bad that doesn't apply to gun owners.

Too bad that doesn’t apply to gun owners. An interesting observation is floating around cyberspace these days about the liberal hypocrisy of profiling. It reads,“We are told not to judge all Muslims by the actions of a few crazies, but we are told to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few crazies.”

Brilliant!

Excellent point Rusty....I'm going to use that in future debates if that's okay. When I saw this article I thought, "That's the best title to a pro-2A piece I've ever seen!"

A "Muslim" isn't inherently dangerous by design.

Neither are American citizens who happen to own a gun. 100,000,000 of us own guns that have never harmed anyone.
