America's gun problem isn't about guns. It's about racists. "Research reveals that racial resentment is highly linked to gun ownership." http://fusion.net/story/324449/racial-resentment-guns-research/
"Of course, not all gun owners are racist, and many racists don’t own guns. But these data sets clearly show that guns and race are deeply intertwined today, as they have been throughout history. Opposition to gun control—like opposition to immigration, Sharia law, and “political correctness”—has become linked to things that racially resentful whites fear." ‎- Eivind
