In a WaPo op-ed, the author says the NRA will fall, it’s inevitable. In fact, that’s the title of the article. Written by UCLA law professor Adam Winkler, gun control is seen as a positive end product of massive immigration.
Most of the NRA’s support comes from white, rural and relatively less educated voters, according to this professor. He said their influence in politics is on the “wane”.
While whites, who are the majority by 63%, favor gun rights 57 percent to 40 percent, they won’t be the majority for long.
African Americans say that gun control is more important than gun rights (72 percent to 24 percent). However, they aren’t a fast growing demographic but Hispanics are, Winkler says.
The professor wrote that between 2000 and 2010, the nation’s Latino population grew by 43 percent. Hispanics, which make up 17 percent of the population today, are expected to grow to 30 percent of the population in the coming decades.
Hispanics prefer gun control by 75%.
Asians, who are at 5% of the population will triple over the next thirty years and they too are anti-gun.
Rural whites who prefer gun rights to gun control are also on the decline with people being pushed into the cities. Urban residents strongly prefer gun control to gun rights (60 percent to 38 percent),
The writer also claims college educated prefer gun control by 58%. The aging slightly prefer gun rights as do the young but they won’t be significant, the author insists.
Winkler believes that because crime rates have dropped significantly since the 70s and 80s, the self-defense argument doesn’t hold water. He doesn’t mention that as the crime rate went down, gun ownership went up.
If they get our guns, we will be totally subjugated to the elite who trot around with armed bodyguards but this professor is making his predictions based on a very real trend. The left has flooded the country with foreigners who don’t understand our freedoms or our rights. It’s not only our Second Amendment that will fall.
