Oh yeah, another research paper by liberals implies that if you own a gun in your home, and you’re against gun control, you don’t like Black people:
After accounting for numerous other factors such as income, education and political ideology, the researchers found that for each one point increase (on a scale from one to five) in symbolic racism there was a 50 percent increase in the odds of having a gun in the home and a 28 percent increase in support for policies allowing people to carry concealed guns.
Each one point increase in symbolic racism (a modern measure of anti-black racism) was also associated with a 27 percent increase in the odds of opposing bans on hand guns in the home. After accounting for those who already had a gun in the home, the odds were reduced to a non-significant 17 percent increase. However, the authors note that this reduction is unsurprising as opposition to bans on guns equates to self interest on behalf of those who already own a gun and do not wish to give it up. And racism was already strongly associated with having a gun in the home.
That’s from the abstract. You can, if you really want to, read the ‘research paper’ here.
From a casual, quick read of it early this morning, I notice that they give weight to such factors as considering yourself conservative, living in the South, etc., as check-offs for being racist.
