I agree with this. Most of these gun enthusiasts I've met just ####ing love shooting guns. Like I said, it's a high for them. Also as I said before, I guess it's a feeling of power, or even like having a 2nd di#k or something. But that is by far the majority of gun owners and why they like guns. Is there a small percentage that might be scared of minorities "swarming in and taking over?", yeah, there's always going to be crazy people, so sure, but it's a tiny percentage of the gun owners out there.

A wise strategy when trying to figure out a phenomenon is to look at the simplest answer. Most of the time, we try and hypothesize all these different scenarios, and possibilities but in the end, it's the obvious, simple answer. And that's that people love shooting guns, they love the feeling of owning guns, something of power. And that's it, it's not because they're scared some black guy is going to come bust in their house and rob them, it's because the person likes shooting guns. It's a hobby, it's like me playing basketball every week. To Joe Gun Enthusiast, that's his weekly way of having fun. To must of us who aren't around guns or people who love guns like that, it's alien, so we try and make some other kind of sense out of it, but I'm telling you, that's all it is.

99% of the people co-signing Moore in this thread, have absolutely nothing to do with gun culture. You don't own guns, you don't shoot guns and you don't know #### about guns. Yet you think you speak for white people, and more specifically, all gun owners. Y'all live in a bubble.

That's interesting, how about Michael Moore does a study of why inner city minorities are buying guns? What are they afraid of?



But that's not part of the agenda. We can't shine a light on that.

That post wasn't directed at you in particular.

I completely disagree however, that there is an underlying subculture of minority fear in gun extremism. That is completely fabricated bull####. There is however, an underlying subculture of minority fear in racist white people. It just so happens that there are racist white people who buy guns in this country. But to twist that into a blanket statement on all gun owners, or even the majority of gun owners for that matter, is completely disingenuous and a bunch of conspiracy horse#### that no one should bother spending five minutes entertaining. You either know better, or you don't. And like I said, a lot of cats in this thread don't, because they don't know the first ####ing thing about gun culture. They have zero reference. They just have a bunch of lame a$s fantasies fueled by inferiority complexes, paranoia and ignorance. It's ironic actually, considering the argument here is based on the idea that white people are scared of minorities.

Why are guns so prevalent in our society? The answer is simple... They're alluring, fun, empowering, and a hallmark of our heritage, patriotic identity and tradition.

Get the #### out of here dude, we all know White people are racist, scared little devils, afraid of the powerful minorities who are here to takeover because white men are completely infertile and of weaker genetic makeup. That's the only reason white people have guns, because they're scared of minorities!

Maybe some white people, but me, I give a #### about other white people. If you're white, that doesn't make us cool, that doesn't make us friends, that doesn't give us a bond from my perspective. If I were to be the only white person left on earth, I would have absolutely no problem with that, likely because I'd be considered rare and more unique/special.

Light skinned races who have gone to Africa have experienced this. Some African populations have never seen light skinned people before. David Choe, a famous Korean-American artist went to Africa and he talked about how they thought he was an alien. The kids were all amazed, touching his skin and he got the 5 star treatment from the elders.

I see your point though, people still caught up in the tribal mindstate would want their "tribe" aka whites to survive. But that's just not me. Maybe it's because I grew up around Latinos more than whites, I dunno.

Man look... this is the real about this Michael Moore interview... Michael Moore is only saying that shyt to hype up the thought that already runs through most American minds(and it seems to be true by reading this thread) that Whites still fear Blacks or other minorities. Some whites may still fear Blacks or whatever, but its not like it was back in the day. This aint the 20's, 40's, 50's or whatever. Whites aint fearing Black ppl like that. They may not like us, but thats not why they're buying guns and shyt. To understand White ppl and guns, you gotta get outta the "fear of the Black man" mind frame. Most White ppl I've come across are mostly into guns for sport and protection. And they might have other reasons, but I can guarantee you that it's not mainly for a potential race war. And the reason White ppl as well as others like me are buying up guns right now is b/c of the steady push and talks to ban guns. And sad thing is, yall fallin for this shyt Michael Moore talkin bout when he's probably getting paid to spread an anti-gun message so ppl can actually consider a gun ban... gotta wake up man... you being played...

The more things chance, the more they stay the same my dude......these peopel buying guns are well aware of this country social structure that is dramatically changing........you said it yourself its for protection....who do you think they think they need protection from? With all the "Take our country back rhetoric" you dont think there was some under lying themes in that......I understand your concern.....but this is not anti-gun.....its anti bat #### white people who are scared ####less they are loosing thier freedoms and their country to every one else who is not like them.
