At Steve Sailer’s, a commenter going by the name “testing99” that seems like he’s trying to replace a previous visitor called “Evil Neocon” made the claim “Blacks don’t want gun control either, the last thing they’d want is for their militias er … Gangs to be disarmed. That’s what keeps them from being ethnically cleansed by Latino Gangs or gentrification yuppies”. That seemed like data-free assertion, so I decided to check it. I ran the question GUNLAW in the 2006 GSS against race. The question asks “Would you favor or oppose a law which would require a person to obtain a police permit before he or she could buy a gun?”.
As you can see, blacks are more in favor of this gun-control law than whites. My guess is that blacks tend to live in urban neighborhoods with high-crime rates and associate guns with gang violence. Whites tend to live in areas with lower crime rates and more hunting. They probably associate anti-gun types with anti-hunting and PETA folks. Guns are also rather traditional for many whites, whereas blacks were prohibited from owning them. In many European countries only the nobility was able to hunt and generally restricted the ability of the lower classes to own weapons. These same countries tend to be more densely populated and urban today and they also have more gun control.
UPDATED March 26 2011: For search purposes I should mention that testing99 later changed his handle to “Whiskey” and started a blog under that name. And if someone could tell me how to make my wordpress.com search with a logical “OR” or other tricks, I would appreciate it.
