The article/study titled Racism In White Americans Linked To Gun Ownership And Gun Control Opposition is starting to make the rounds of the Gun Control advocates. As usual, it does not provide much for method or how the study was done, par for the course.
A new study of symbolic racism among white American voters yielded strong links between latent biases toward blacks and increased favor of gun ownership and oppositions toward gun control.
Published in the journal PLoS One, the study used voter data of white Americans that, after accounting for political ideology, income, and education, still revealed startling connections between racism and gun ownership
I have never heard of PLoS One so I did a quick search. According to Wiki “PLOS ONE (originally PLoS ONE) is an open access peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Public Library of Science since 2006.” My memory was triggered to an article I have read recently about these “open access peer-reviewed scientific journal” and although I could not find the original, I did managed to get an article from Berkley Blog denouncing them as mercenaries that collect monies from the author to review the study and then publish it. Since they only collect money if the article is published….you get the idea. It explains how reporter John Bohannon conducted a sting presenting a paper on a cancer-curing lichen so filled with mistake as to make it impossible for any half-witted peer review publication to publish and yes, a boatload of the did publish it & collected the cash. You may want to read the whole article by Mr. Bohannon in Science Magazine.
So… consider the source of this study on Gun Control and Racism. And I want them to explain the boatload of Hispanics with guns in South Florida…..lots of somebodies did not get the memo.
