White Men and Guns
From the Washington Post
Nearly all of the mass shootings in this country in recent years - not just Newtown, Aurora, Fort Hood, Tucson and Columbine - have been committed by white men and boys.
What facets of white male culture create so many mass shootings?
Why are so many white men and boys producing and entertaining themselves with violent video games and other media?
Why do white men buy, sell and manufacture guns for profit; attend gun shows; and demonstrate for unrestricted gun access disproportionately more than people of other ethnicities or races?
..when the criminals and leaders are white men, race and gender become the elephant in the room.
When white men try to divert attention from gun control by talking about mental health issues, many people buy into the idea that the United States has a national mental health problem,,,,,,,,,,,,,
But women and girls with mental health issues are not picking up semiautomatic weapons and shooting schoolchildren. Immigrants with mental health issues are not committing mass shootings in malls and movie theaters. Latinos with mental health issues are not continually killing groups of strangers.
Why are white male congressmen leading the fight against gun control?
