With so much attention devoted to Biden/Clinton/Trump/Ryan this week, this little nugget in the Washington Post was easy to overlook.
But, thanks to the enterprising folks over at Red Alert Politics, it is finally getting the attention it deserves.
If you click in the links above, you’ll find that UCLA Professor Adam Winkler thinks he’s found the way to finally erode gun rights in America … all it takes is patience.
In his article, entitled “The NRA will fall. It’s inevitable.” Winkler asserts that Second Amendment supporters are overwhelmingly white, while huge majorities of African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians all favor gun restrictions. And with the numbers of immigrants arriving in the United States continuing to surge, it’s only a matter of time before they form a majority.
And with that majority comes the power to finally crack down on private gun ownership in America.
Winkler has certainly got math on his side; America is projected to become a minority-majority nation at midcentury. But it remains to be seen whether new immigrants, once they arrive and become accustomed to America’s proud tradition of defending individual freedom, will simply do the bidding of rich liberals.
What do you think of Professor Winkler’s theory? Does it have you concerned, or is it just harmless bluster?
