It's a good article but all the examples of people opposed to gun control that he cited were Jews or Blacks and he made it a point to make note of that. Liberal ideology on this issue is wrong no matter where it comes from.

She was simply acknowledging that Black and Jewish organizations reflexively support gun control. And as Prof. John Lott has pointed out, groups such as these are the ones that see the greatest benefit from firearms ownership. Their anti-gun positions are thus illogical and based upon irrational emotions and psychological defense mechanisms. This was the whole point of the article; that many anti-gun people are not basing their views upon objective reasoning, but rather on emotions and fears. And by no means is she implying that all Blacks or all Jews are anti-gun. Groups such as CORE or Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership contradict such a view. (And since she cites an article from JPFO, she's obviously aware that such groups exist!)
