Are You a Racist If You Own a Gun?

John Lott, Fox News, November 1, 2013

If you believe a new study, whites who own guns do so because they harbor racist feelings towards blacks. Indeed, in the study, four Australian and British psychologists also claim that racism is associated with opposition to gun control.

The lead paragraph on this study in Friday’s New York Daily News summed up the claim this way: “Racism and guns go together.”

So how is racism measured? Well, you are apparently “racist” if you don’t agree that the legacy of slavery still has a great impact on how blacks are faring today. After all, slavery was abolished 158 years ago.

Besides, blacks were doing relatively better on many dimensions, such as family stability, during the early 1960s than today.

Of course, people might disagree with these points, but that doesn’t mean that they are racist.

OK, so conservatives are more likely to own guns than liberals (big surprise there), and they are more likely to believe that people are more responsible for how well they do in life than something that happened to their ancestors over a century and a half ago.

Even more telling, when I examined this data set I found that non-whites and blacks who hold these supposedly “racist” views on slavery are also more likely to own guns.

So let’s get this straight. Blacks who don’t believe that slavery in the U.S. is important in explaining how well a black does in today’s society hates other blacks and is thus more likely to own a gun?

The authors focus on people who are racist being the ones who are more likely to buy guns, but they also speculate: “simply owning a firearm may lead whites to develop more negative attitudes towards blacks. There is some experimental research showing that participants who have recently held a firearm produce enhanced salivary testosterone levels and display increased aggression toward others.”


The study’s lead author, Kerry O’Brien, explained to the New York Daily News that their conclusions are so sensible because: “There had already been research showing that . . . blacks are more likely to be shot, so we thought there must be something happening between the concept of being black and some whites wanting guns.”

There is an obvious problem with this claim. Blacks, not whites, are killing blacks. Indeed, in 2012, over 91 percent of blacks were murdered by other blacks.


Disappointingly, none of the media coverage on this paper even bothered asking other academics to critique these claims.

The notion that gun owners must be racist appears to fit journalists’ worldview so well it probably never dawned on them that this research was fatally flawed.

  • “simply owning a firearm may lead whites to develop more negative attitudes towards blacks

    If that’s true, then gun ownership should be mandatory for non-thug white people.

    • Oil Can Harry

      The way leftards will interpret this data is that if Big Brother would only disarm whites they’d lose their racist views.

      • Homo_Occidentalis

          BTW the p.c. brigades will cite this bogus study as “proof” that George Zimmerman is a racist. After all, he owns a gun…

      • Jefferson

        If only White people were disarmed by the government, the murder rate would drop in cities like Detroit, Oakland, Baltimore, St. Louis, etc. {sarcasm]

        • Marlin B. Newburn

          It’s amazing how many people believe this.

          Excuse me, I meant, “sheeple.”

          Good post.

    • Defiant White

      If pro football, college football, college track & field and the Olympics are any indication, blacks run fast and are thus hard to hit when breaking into your home. No wonder gun owners develop negative attitudes towards them.

      I bet gun owners would have much more positive attitudes towards fat, old, white people because they’re easy to hit . . . BUT WHITES DON’T BREAK INTO FREAKING HOUSES, DO THEY?

      • Puggg

        White people don’t break into houses? You should come to my county. They do it plenty, looking for stuff to steal to pawn in order to buy meth or heroin. And when they’re caught, a county mounty or a municipal black-and-white brings them to my workplace where they can spend sometime with their Uncle Puggg.

        • IstvanIN

          I don’t think anyone said whites didn’t commit crimes, even violent crimes, but when it comes to criminality blacks take the cake, and just about everything else.

        • Jesse James

          Yep I must say we have plenty of white meth thieves down here also.

          • M.

            When Whites commit crimes, they tend to be either intoxicated or clinically psychopathic. Contrary to others.
            They don’t have that “for the heck of it” type of criminal activity.
            Obviously, I’m not speaking in absolute terms, but this is just something I noticed.

      • Keep Honkin I’m Reloading

        Not according to ADT 🙂

    • 48224

      Correction….living around blacks WILL lead to more negative attitudes towards blacks. And if the whites cannot afford to MOVE to get away from the blacks….they must buy a gun to live in their now diverse neighborhood because whites become a target. Living around blacks can give whites PTSD and that can be mis-labeled as “racism”….I speak from experience.

      • JohnEngelman

        When I was nearly murdered by four blacks a white person suggested I read Tim Wise’s essay “The Color of Deception.” In this essay Tim Wise argues that the notion that blacks are more dangerous than whites is a myth. However, he failed to convince me that the emotional and physical wounds I suffered from those black criminals were imaginary.

        • 48224

          Tim Wise is one of those people that believe that lying and ignoring facts somehow makes him smarter than people who embrace reality.
          Blacks are more dangerous than any other race on earth. EVERY crime study ever done shows that.

      • 1Forced_Registration

        PTSD indeed. I would not be a gun owner if it were not for: having a molotov thrown at me during the King riots by blacks, having a gun pointed at me while managing a pizzeria by blacks, and having had my home broken into by blacks.

        I grew up in Saint Louis, Missouri. When I was younger there was a clearer racial dividing line that separated the blacks in the north side of the city from the whites in the south side of the city. I had no problems with blacks until that line changed, and until experience taught me that they were going to make problems for me, mine, and my neighborhood.

        I would think nothing of walking down Arsenal Street between Grand & Jefferson avenue in my youth; I wouldn’t recommend it now.

        • Arsenal between Grand and Jefferson? You’re getting very very close to the old boyhood home.

    • skara_brae

      If gun ownership indicates racism then Switzerland must be bursting at the seams with racists.

    • JohnEngelman

      Simply being a victim of black crime may lead whites to develop more negative attitudes towards blacks.

  • Jesse James

    I am an equal opportunity gun owner, I don’t care what race you are if you are breaking into my home or threatening me or my family I will protect what is mine.

  • Luca

    Wait a minute, owning a gun makes a person racist? Good Lord, I am a racist 9 times over!

    • Defiant White

      I have dogs that only bark at black people. I wonder if they sell a gun that only shoots at black people?

      • Strider73

        My good friend Frodo has a sword that glows blue when blacks orcs are nearby. In the next installment of The Hobbit you will learn how that sword got the name “Sting.”

  • Manaphy

    Life according to anti-whites:

    Do you own a gun?

    Are you white?

    Are you from Europe?

    Did you wake up today?

    If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you are a despicable racist and evil Nazis like you have no place in our wonderful melting pot of diversity and beacon for immigration.

  • Alexandra1973

    Blacks are the most hatefully racist and I guarantee you a lot of them are packing heat.

    • blight14

      No offense but we need a new term for blacks, per the textbook definition ‘racist’ implies a feeling of superiority over other races…..SURELY they aren’t that delusional….superior to whom?

  • Daniel Schmuhl

    Most of the social sciences and humanities need defunding.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Socialist sciences. No kidding. There was a time when there was some rigor in these areas but they now serve as a dumping ground for substandard intellects and think tanks for crypto-marxists. Funny, when sociology is applied to ethnically homogeneous groups it tends to work pretty well.

      But attempts to analyze diverse societies invariable devolve into something absurd and lazy like this. The problem is that Sociology has become not a science, but a pseudo-scientific ideology based on the flawed assumption that there are no inherited differences between different groups of people.

      It’s as bad a Soviet era presentation of Marxism as a science. Worse perhaps because of the more poignant hypocrisy involved.

          • Mergatroyd

            I agree. Spartacus is one of the staunchest supporters of White issues on this entire board.
            The down votes mean he is doing something right.

          • Spartacus

            Exactly .

    • bilderbuster

      You noticed that idiotic comment too I see.
      They saw research that blacks are more likely to be shot so their first thought was that whites MUST be responsible.
      I don’t believe they are that stupid but rather it was their excuse for an expensive study to enrich themselves & spout their anti-White/anti-gun propaganda at the same time.

  • ncpride

    participants who have recently held a firearm produce enhanced salivary testosterone levels and display increased aggression toward others.”

    Does this mean I produce more enhanced Estrogen levels when I handle my firearm? HA! You have to laugh at this nonsense and make fun of it. At least the author of this article finds the absurdity of it as well, and tells some unvarnished truths. That’s something at least.

    • Anglokraut

      Just holding a gun should make you ovulate!

    • Lewis33

      We are going to see more of this kind of story…its to staunch the massive flow of females becoming first time gun owners. Looking at you mom!

      • Mergatroyd

        Gun sale to women have been exploding, also women are signing up in droves to learn how to handle guns and about gun safety. They know that those self-defense methods like peeing on yourself to deter a rapist do not work.

    • JDInSanD

      I’ll bet participants who have recently held a beer (or a chainsaw or a video game controller or a football or a Porsche steering wheel or a guitar, etc) produce enhanced salivary testosterone levels and display increased aggression toward others

  • I heard this on Faux news the other day, of course the moron host said Whites would own guns because we make up 83% of the pop. 83%?? I thought we were 63% at best last time I checked, I think most (if not all) these TV clowns don’t know basic math.

    • Homo_Occidentalis

      Whites are 63%* of the American populace.

      *deceptive Census Bureau figure includes: Turks, Armenians, Moroccans, Syrians, Algerians, Libyans, Egyptians, Jordanians, Arabs, the Tsarnaev bros., Cenk Uygur, etc.

      • Jefferson

        Don’t forget the census bureau also includes Mestizos into the “White” category.

        According to the U.S census bureau, the Southwest region of The United States (Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, California, Texas) is still predominantly “White’.

        Does anybody here at American Renaissance for one second believe the B.S that the Southwest is still a Whitopia ?

        • WR_the_realist

          Precisely. The Census Bureau classifies as “white” any Mestizo who self identifies as white. Even if he’s 1/8th black and 5/8 central American Indian. I have a practical test: Any man who qualifies for affirmative action is not white.

          • Mergatroyd

            Remember those wanted posters out of Texas? Page after page of photos of clearly Mestizo criminals with 90% of them labeled as “White.”

      • M.

        Bullshit, I know!
        I’m Algerian, and the full-blooded Caucasians here make up around 1% of the population, of which I’m part. The only Whites remaining here are from the small portion of the native Berbers of the northern mountainous regions who remained isolated and didn’t mix with Arabs, other “tainted” Berbers, and the Saharans. The Saharans are outright black-skinned, although not completely negroid. It’s a joke that they count them as “White”!
        Same applies to the Tunisians.

    • Jefferson

      If the U.S was still 83 percent White, Obongo would have never been elected POTUS.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Well, what’s the difference?

    Just by virtue of our White skin we are labeled by pseudo-scientists and MSNBC as racists, sexists, homophobes and privileged oppressors of all mankind past, present and future.

    We evil Whites need those gun for all the oppressing that is expected of us.

    There will be no atoning for White sins and nothing will change that so go ahead and call me a racist — you will anyway!!


    • Mergatroyd

      My guns are black. Does that make me a racist? I also have a black dog that hates blacks.

      Never mind, like you said, they’ll call me a racist no matter what.

  • David Ashton

    In Britain it is mainly the black gangs who own guns. Are they more racist?

    • ncpride

      Now, David….. you know better than that. Whites and only Whites can be racists!

    • bilderbuster

      They are if they don’t use them against Whites.

  • joesolargenius

    Well that does it ,I am now unable to deny that I am a racist as I own guns (plural ).

  • WR_the_realist

    Conservatives want guns to defend themselves from marauding blacks. That makes them racist. Liberals want to ban guns in the (vain) hope that that will keep them out of the hands of marauding blacks. That makes the liberals racist too.

    See, psychology is easy!

  • Defiant White

    I own lots of guns and admit to being a proud and long-time racist who believes whites, as a group, are being maligned and have a God-given right to fight back and re-establish an all-white nation. So, #1, I guess they’re right. LOL #2 I think I’ll assert my racism by running out and buying a few more guns.

    By the way, what are you if you just own a bow and arrow?

    • Wethepeople

      Amen brother. Ill have to go put some rounds down range tomorrow, to punish my weapons for making me racist.

    • bilderbuster

      Then you’re “Old School Racist”.

    • “What are you if you just own a bow and arrow?”

      A very quiet racist.

      • Strider73

        Ditto for crossbow owners.

  • Puggg

    This study is so dumb. All you have to be to be “racist” if you’re white is to be white in the first place. Dare I insert the last line of Bob Whittaker’s Mantra here?

  • Rhialto

    There are various ways of stating the same fact, with different connotations, note:
    “…whites who own guns do so because they harbor racist feelings towards blacks.”
    “Whites who hate guns do so because they harbor irrational affection towards blacks”

    Ying versus Yang.

  • dave

    if owning a gun means your racist count me in. im sick of this political correctness,its destroyed this nation.

    • anon

      Even if I wasn’t a racist I have to ask, do my 12 or so family heirloom guns make me racist? We have a few we purchased new but most of them are handed down. Another factoid leftards never factor in. They assume every gun is a brand new bushmaster.

  • bigone4u

    The left will leave no lie untold in its ongoing effort to genocide us by disarming us. Since I did university research for decades, I can tell you that whatever conclusion you want to reach, you can reach by torturing the data.

  • Ella

    Sadly, our Bill of Rights would NEVER have been written today with these a…clowns among academia and the US government. I have the ultimate respect for Thomas Jefferson as time proceeds about gun ownership. The elite will have a real difficult time to disarm older, American people, but for the younger generations, I’m concerned.

    • Sick of it

      Technically, the Founders would be rebelling against this government, not working with them. Some of us quite like the Bill of Rights (but we’re the potential terrorists).

    Another way to interpret their data might be that a man with working testicles is more likely to be aggressive about protecting his family than a nutless liberal.

    • ms_anthro

      I seriously wonder if the mass acceptance of pantywaist liberalism and leftism among weak seed males in the West today has anything to do with all the female hormones floating around in our municipal water supplies thanks to so many women being on the Pill.

      What has happened to our men?

      • Jesse James

        Get a Berkey water filter or a similar unit and start filtering out some of these harmful chemicals in our water. We have a shallow well and we run all the water we drink through the Berkey.

        • ms_anthro

          We only drink bottled water in my family but we still have to shower in tap water. I’m sure plenty of harmful things are aerosolized and absorbed even if you don’t drink it.

      • Sick of it

        Estrogen-like compounds, especially exposure to them in the womb, probably have something to do with it. Our men have also been feminized psychologically, starting from childhood. The things I’m reading about in public schools today horrify me…like arresting a boy for bringing a LEGO gun to school or making a big deal about drawing ninjas or soldiers. Even non-liberal women are encouraging these policies in order to keep their boys “safe”.

    And while the so-called “researchers” make up idiotic theories that can be debunked by a five-year old, more important things are happening, things that are killing those few who actually deserve life:

    • A horrible tragedy. But in all fairness, it’s not smart to let your kids play in a pile of leaves that’s in the street. The kids were covered in leaves and invisible to passing drivers, at least according to what I’ve read. There are plenty of other, better, examples of drunken Mexicans mowing down our people.

      • Spartacus

        They were in their own front yard, not on the street.

        • Well then I stand corrected. Such a loss.

  • John R

    And if you are a stupid, deluded “non-racist” liberal, who believes in the idiocy that “race is a social construct” but that blacks must have preferential treatment; and you believe that “Whites” are “not a race” but that “White people” are guilty of racism, then you are less likely to own a gun. Yeah. I can do a study, too.

  • Garrett Brown

    People didnt actually think gun sales are spiking because of the government did they? It’s because of that good ol diversity! Implemented by our government yes, but they aren’t the ones breaking into our homes are they? I am a proud owner of 5 diversity stoppers, and sure, you can call me racist. Whatever makes you happy but don’t try to come into my house uninvited or you will pay the ultimate price.

    • Mergatroyd

      Gun sales ARE spiking because of the government.

      The government is the very thing allowing blacks to rampage against Whites with near-impunity and moving Section 8 blacks into our neighborhoods to terrorize us. The Second Amendment was written for precisely this purpose, against tyranny, and the way things look now, I’d say there is tyranny against Whites — instigated and perpetuated by the government. Blacks are only doing what comes naturally to them, raping, murdering, wilding. The are tools of an out of control anti-White government.

      I despise black crime but I despise and fear the government more.

    The Sunday-evening robbery marked the end of busy weekend for police in downtown Towson.

    According to a police report, a man was sitting on a bench at the
    Towson Town Center mall at 6:58 p.m. Sunday when his phone was taken
    from his hand. Police described the suspect as a black male in his 20s, 5
    feet 9, with a medium build, brown eyes, and medium complexion.

    Just after 12:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 1, a female college student was
    walking down Aigburth Road toward Cedar Lane near Towson High when her
    iPhone 4S was stolen from her hands, according to police.

    Police said two men walked up on either side of her and stole the
    phone from the woman, who struggled with the thieves but was

    Later that morning, police said two men, one with a handgun and
    another armed with a shotgun, pulled their weapons on a man walking in
    the 1100 block of Charlesview Way at 3 a.m. Friday and stole his wallet.

    Armacost said police see “no obvious linkage” between the incidents,
    though they are still looking into whether there are any connections.

    The incidents come on the heels of community concern about when
    officers pledged to the Towson precinct in May will begin patrolling the

    Three additional officers were pledged to the precinct at a press
    conference with County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Police Chief Jim

    The first officer was scheduled to begin Friday, police said, but the
    remaining two officers have not been assigned to the precinct.

  • Marlin B. Newburn

    Hoo boy; just when I thought my profession couldn’t get more goofy.

    In psychological research there is on construct to be avoided at all costs, and this is taught in graduate school. At least it’s supposed to be. It’s called manipulating data to produce a desired outcome while assuming motives and values of the subjects. Ignoring established data is another major problem with this “research.” This is a major ethical flaw, if not a violation, of ethics rules. Then there is the study design that needs to be evaluated.

    Then again, universities world-wide now teach from the PC pulpit.

    The damage has been done, however, and I doubt very much it was peer reviewed to begin with. The race-hustlers are going to have a field day with it.

    There are many of us in the field that wouldn’t give this “research” a second look. Still, form a professional standpoint, it’s cringe-worthy while being embarrassing.

    I recommend “lock and load”, folks, and always be prepared to protect yourselves, your families, and your property. I surely do.

    • robinbishop34

      Sounds a lot like Lysenkoism. Lysenkoism: used metaphorically to describe the manipulation or distortion of the scientific process as a way to reach a predetermined conclusion as dictated by an ideological bias, often related to social or political objectives.

  • Jack Whistler

    I’ll quit being a heavily armed racist…
    When blacks cease turning entire cities into wastelands where civilians have higher mortality rates than soldiers deployed to combat zones…
    When blacks cease raping hundreds of thousands of white women a year…
    When blacks cease killing white men any time it suits them…
    When blacks cease being near-unanimous supporters of political movements that would ultimately reduce the population to abject slavery…
    When blacks cease being the core of every violent riot…
    When blacks cease being the harbinger of the destruction of a neighborhood…
    When blacks cease committing the majority of all violent crime despite being a fraction of the population…
    When blacks by their very presence are no longer more destructive to a thriving city than an atomic bomb…
    When all of those conditions are met, then I will be willing to at least consider no longer being a heavily-armed racist. Even then, we will still have to discuss the hordes of foreign invaders, the crime they bring with them, and the dark portents they create for our nation’s future.

  • M.

    Okay, so Whites tend to be more wary of Blacks than of other fellow Whites.
    Yeah, that’s not racism. Any sane person aware of crime statistics would be. That’s called “going with the odds!”, which is a healthy human instinct.

  • M.

    Even within non-Hispanic Whites, they count in Turks, Middle-Easterners, North-Africans, and Sicilians, who are only partially europoid.
    So the full-blooded Caucasians are actually even lower than that.

  • Nice Guy

    Black on black murder is the negrolocaust. Whites just need to stay out of it, lest good people be pulled into a negrocalypse of unseen proportions!

  • Earl Turner

    Owning a gun or guns no more makes one a racist than owning camping gear makes one a survivalist. I’m not a racist because I’m white and armed. I’m a racist because my eyes and mind are open.

  • Mergatroyd

    More White bashing and to keep Whites believing that crime is committed by Whites so that we’ll let our guard down against blacks.

    Blacks want to move into your neighborhood from the inner city for a better life? Well, that’s just great! According to shows like CSI and commercials like ADT it’s Whites we need to be nervous about, not blacks.

    The media lie about race 24/7 and woe be to anyone who believes what they see on TV i.e., Whites murdering, raping, assaulting blacks, etc. when the races have been reversed.

    Remember the case of that black woman who plowed into a White homeless guy who then got stuck in her windshield and she continued home and left him to die over several days — while still in her windshield– in her garage? The women driver was BLACK but in the TV version the woman driver was WHITE.

    • [Guest]

      >>>Remember the case of that black woman…

      I recall that. The killer was Chante Jawan Mallard. In the movie she was called Brandi Boski and was played by Mena Suvari.

      Here, side by side, are the murderer and the woman who portrayed her:

        The similarity is obvious…

        Why, it’s uncanny!

  • Mergatroyd

    The media and politicians are very well aware of crime stats and know exactly who the criminals are. Wealthy blacks, pro-blacks politicians and Michael Moore types choose to live in White neighborhoods. Why is that?
    Their job is to malign Whites, that’s what they’re being paid to do and why they were elected. Their hypocrisy is never pointed out by the media, same way they cover up black crime.

  • Mergatroyd

    That is a government figure most likely doctors. Look around. Does it look like Whites make up a majority in this country? I travel all over the U.S. and from what I’ve seen it looks like we Whites are less than 50% now. The government puts out the majority White figure to keep us placated.

    Yeah and spoons make people fat


    Give it some time, Switzerland is busy importing massive amounts of future criminals just like the rest of our insane white countries.

  • I’m not racist.

    I have one very old gun: a 1936 German Lugar & I only got it because my Dad, who fought in WW-II as a B-25 pilot, returned his officer’s sidearm, as per Army policy, when he left the service in 1962. I never heard of any other officer doing that. Everyone else had all sorts of WW-II souveniers and I was unjustly deprived of mine.

    Thus when I finished grad school and got a real job I went out & bought one. This hardly counts does it? Besides it jams after a few shots unless one uses the more expensive brass ammo. I don’t shoot it anymore as it’s an antique.

    As a nonsequiter I should also ask if anyone here has seen the new “Nelson Mandela” film? I’d guess it’s on track to win an Academy Award and possibly best pix of the year.

    Calm down everyone. I’m already well aware of the fact that even the worst meth lab trailer park farm in my county is nowhere near as dangerous as ghetto St. Louis. Just don’t get into the mindset that meth is somehow a good thing.

  • This “gun control is racist” or “gun control is anti-black” rhetorical nonsense from the part of the NRA and other similar like minded people needs to stop by yesterday.

    It accomplishes nothing politically, and in fact, is counterproductive, because it gains them virtually no blacks, but drives white urban and suburban soccer moms right into the arms of Sarah Brady.

    2nd towson robbery same description baltimore towson university students getting stabbed and robbed by black groups.
    A female passerby found the man in the middle of the street and called police about 10:50 p.m. Sunday night. When police and EMS responded to the scene, they found the man’s injuries so serious that he could not say what happened, other than that the alleged attackers were three thin, black men.

    The Goucher student who was robbed Monday night gave that same description of his alleged assailants, though neither could provide additional details.

    “There had already been research showing that . . . blacks are more likely to be shot, so we thought there must be something happening between the concept of being black and some whites wanting guns.”
    Probably the most unscientific thing I’ve ever heard from something supposedly “scientific”. Nothing even approaching academic integrity. This is pseudo science at best. My girlfriend is a Ph.D student – she showed me some syllabus for a class “Difference, Diversity, and Privilege” or some such crap. You could vomit for days after reading that horse$#!t.

    It tells me that I’m glad I live in a county that hardly has any blacks.

    Since I own over 30 different guns and pistols, I guess I am “super-racist”. So be it. I was going to be considered racist by the liberals, anyway.

    I’m not sure about Israel….only military age men and women keep their firearms in their homes or on their persons….most everyone else walks around unarmed most of the time because Israel’s metro areas aren’t anywhere near as dangerous as the ones in the US…
