Second look at Millennials?
There are few issues that leftists are more intellectually dishonest about than guns (maybe abortion, it all depends which issue they can get the most attention lying about that week). They’ve gone all-in as gun control as their big issue for 2016 (see King Obama Wants Your Guns. Everything You Need To Know About Today’s Presser… and Of Course! Hillary Plants Young Boy to ask Anti-Gun Question…).
A recent Pew poll shows that young Americans are the least likely of all age groups to support a ban on “assault weapons.” They’re also less likely to support banning certain types of ammunition that the Left has deemed too scary and bans on semiautomatic weapons. Older Americans are significantly more likely to support these proposals. This befuddles the Left; the generation that they have so consistently counted on to back their various “social justice” proposals is now turning on them to go their own course and explore other avenues of self-defense besides depending on the government for every need.
Gun rights is an issue that may turn that support and force young people to explore an option other than the Democratic Party for their political support because of the group’s blatant disregard for young people’s opinions on certain policy proposals. Young people have long been in favor of gun rights, yet Democrats continue to push policies that will make gun ownership more costly and time-consuming.
It would seem then that Millennials can’t be forced into a monolithic group as is customary by the left. It would also seem Millennials aren’t too keen on being helpless victims who, when confronted with danger (more on that later), would rather place their well-being with a smooth trigger pull rather than pepper spray. Can’t say I blame them. I’d rather put my immediate safety in a .357 instead of a rape whistle or a call into 911. Especially considering the media has done its best to brand all cops as unfair racists who kill black people for sport.
Millennial women, remember, have been told repeatedly that white men, especially in a fraternity, are on the hunt to rape them. SJW feminists have constantly harped on about “rape culture” and see it everywhere, from inkblot paintings all the way to Princess Leia in a gold bikini. No, these same SJW feminists do not see rape culture in Islam. Lower your expectations. So can you blame these women from arming up? Hardly.
As to Millennial men being totes okay with guns, they’re probably just rapists. Especially if their white. Or in a fraternity. Check your privilege, dudes.
As for the lefts gun control obsession in general…
