Earlier by John Derbyshire: Why Bitter Whites "Cling" To Guns—Even MORE Bitter Black People

CoD beats Hogg. Boomers want gun control. Millennials and especially Zoomers, not so much. This is a topic that has been visited and revisited here because it is one the corporate media and sloppy conventional wisdom so consistently get wrong.

These results come despite the fact that whites are more pro-gun than non-whites and Republicans are more pro-gun than Democrats. Older cohorts are whiter and more Republican than younger cohorts, yet younger cohorts are more pro-gun than older cohorts.
