So you find another bullshit excuse for your racist attitude. I read your drivel and disregarded it for the idiotic propaganda that it is. There is NOTHING affectionate about a RACIST comment. Let a white man say something similar and you'll be screaming for his head. All of you socialist racists are the same. The only one who said anything stupid was YOU. Too bad you don't realize how transparent you are.

The share of American households with guns has declined over the past four decades, a national survey shows, with some of the most surprising drops in the South and the Western mountain states, where guns are deeply embedded in the culture.
The gun ownership rate has fallen across a broad cross section of households since the early 1970s, according to data from the General Social Survey, a public opinion survey conducted every two years that asks a sample of American adults if they have guns at home, among other questions.
The rate has dropped in cities large and small, in suburbs and rural areas and in all regions of the country. It has fallen among households with children, and among those without. It has declined for households that say they are very happy, and for those that say they are not. It is down among churchgoers and those who never sit in pews.
The household gun ownership rate has fallen from an average of 50 percent in the 1970s to 49 percent in the 1980s, 43 percent in the 1990s and 35 percent in the 2000s, according to the survey data, analyzed by The New York Times.
In 2012, the share of American households with guns was 34 percent, according to survey results released on Thursday. Researchers said the difference compared with 2010, when the rate was 32 percent, was not statistically significant.
The findings contrast with the impression left by a flurry of news reports about people rushing to buy guns and clearing shop shelves of assault rifles after the massacre last year at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

It's a funny thing that your feel good article defies the sales numbers, and the FBI's figures on how many new gun owners there actually are.
Your article's survey has a few problems.
Do you suppose it is possible that many of those participating in the survey gave false information? Do you suppose it is possible that many people in today's political atmosphere prefer to play their cards close to their chests so others do not see what they hold? You don't think that is possible do you?

There are too many people who are working hard and playing by the rules and are still stuck in poverty to justify the claim that individual choice is the sole determining factor. Society is structured in a way that keeps people poor regardless of their personal choices. Not saying personal choice isn't a factor, just not the only factor or even the primary factor.
Poverty is different than being criminal. There are those who can't seem to get out of poverty, but criminal action is a choice.

I agree that the social system makes it hard to get out of poverty. Not for the same reasons as you do I expect. The welfare system rewards stagnation, and punishes work and achievement.

I don't believe Nagin every accused Bush of being racist. Like many people, Nagin believed that race played a part in the inadequate response to Katrina victims, but he didn't specifically name Bush.
What assistance did Bush offer in advance of landfall? He was on vacation at the time.
Nagin said that NO was historically a chocolate city and would be again. He never said only blacks "should" populate NO. He was responding to concerns that blacks weren't going to be able to return while white people were. It wasn't a racist comment.
He offered federal troops and other assistance. The Louisiana Governor had concerns about posse commitatas. Forgive my spelling. Parts of this ate in Nagins book. More info is out there.

Had a white Mayor of any major city said they would rebuild as a vanilla city, that wouldn't be racist either?

"The term is used affectionately by African Americans and there's nothing racist about it."

Here's another term used affectionately by the African American community..."n***a". ..that's with an "a" not "er". That isn't racist either, is it...?

Even tryvon Martin's gf testified in court that "n***a" is used for a male of any race...isn't that special.

Let's see if this post will stay since I didn't spell out that non-racist term this time.

If we really cared, we would allow the law abiding people to be armed. We supply arms to some rebels in a foreign country but don't allow our own people to protect themselves...sick.

We do.

Unfortunately, we can't seem to keep guns out of welfare-collecting lawbreakers like yourself.

About the best we can hope for is moving you to where you can do least harm... like Alaska.

Funny: there are upwards of 300 million guns in this country, maybe if your mustache wasn't buried in your boyfriend's short and curlies, you would see the country has tens of millions of gun owners.

Funny, on the previous page you were saying just how few guns there were and that the number of households owning guns was declining and has been for decades now. Now you say what appears to be the opposite. What's your point? Pick one from either page, but try to pick a side to argue.

The incident you are referring to happened on September 2, five days after landfall.

And yes, given the history of white suppression and domination of the minority African American population in this country, any instance of giving preference to the majority white race is racist.

When oppressed people re-appropriate the language of oppression, it isn't racist. Instead it is a way assert power over the oppression.

So to paraphrase your comment, it is racist, according to you, if preference is given a white person, but it is not racist, according to you, to give preference to a black person?
