It appears the majority of gun owners are uneducated white guys who think black people are going to launch a ‘sneak attack’ on white people.
Or at least that’s what The Root would have us believe:

*so much facepalm*
From The Root:
In a clear case of reverse racism, an obscure, little-known discipline called “science” has revealed that the vast majority of gun owners are uneducated white males who think black people are preparing to launch a sneak attack against the Caucasians any day now.
A new article in Scientific American by Jeremy Adam Smith (Yes, “American” is right there in the name, and the article’s by a white guy! That can’t be right.) examined a variety of studies on gun ownership, including a 2017 study by sociologists at Baylor University. Titled “Gun Culture in Action,” the researchers created a “gun-empowerment scale to study the habits and create a profile of the average gun owner.
Can’t. Even. Make. This. Up.
Look out Infowars, you've got some competition here. https://t.co/8KvBFxBWNT

Interesting, I know lots of white gun owners and I've never heard that from any of them. What do the majority of black gun owners think?

Interesting, this editor is a gun owner and is FEMALE … never heard this either.
Literally no gun owner I know thinks this. Not one. Zero. @TheRoot is trolling.

Maybe they’re trying to impress Shannon Watts?
This is the clubhouse leader for dumbest thing I've read today. We'll see if anyone tops it.

It’s early yet, but this is definitely a contender.
