    I did not say that guns rights groups are racist, I said that most contemporary ones are. I'm pro-gun rights, and I'm certainly not calling myself racist.

    There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

    •  Now I see the distinction you're making (0+ / 0-)
      I said that most contemporary ones are
      And contemporary means: "belonging to the same age; living or occurring in the same period of time"
      So you were referring to the "guns rights" groups from back in history before we lived;they were not racist, the ones in existence today are racist.
      Okay, thanks for the clarification, now I get it.

      •  The distinction is between "Gun Rights groups" (0+ / 0-)

        and "Most gun rights groups." Are you really going to argue that there isn't a heavy conservative bias in most gun rights groups?

          That was never in question.
          I took issue with gun rights and racist asserted as being necessarily connected.
          I thought you explained the distinction as being "contemporary"; now you've explained the distinction wasn't "contemporary", it was "most".
          Never mind, I get it.

          •  I'll admit it might have been a bit broad (1+ / 0-)

            even with just most. I certainly don't think most gun owners are racist, at least not more so than the rest of the US.
