Sebastian over at “Shall Not Be Infringed” posted a brilliant piece of analysis today.

It’s not the guns, he says.

It’s us.

People who eschew civil rights don’t hate the guns, they hate those of us who espouse freedom.

When it was just a bunch of old white guys, they figured we’d just die off and that would be the end of this evil gun culture.

The problem is all of the women and young people interested in guns in recent years — and magnified many fold more so in recent weeks. And the leftists who eschew personal liberty and freedom know we aren’t going down without a fight.

And they hate that fact, just as they hate us.

Here’s the pièce de résistance from Sebastian:

I think this is absolutely correct, and everything we’ve been seeing in the media and from the gun control organizations seems to back that up. It fits with the article I did earlier on the cultural changes the coastal elites are seeing being the root cause of this latest backlash. We’ve been too successful for our own good. As long as gun ownership were confined to old, fat white guys (OFWGs), they were content to tolerate it. The changing face of gun ownership worries them, not because of a fear of guns, but for fear and loathing of the people who enjoy them, who increasingly are looking like them. If something isn’t done soon, they may have to take the opinions of gun owners seriously. Gun control is a movement of old white people, but they aren’t going to go down without a fight.

He is correct. They are also losing their oligopoly on infomation flow. This makes them a bit dangerous and desperate.

I’m happy to be on the side that is hated cause the hated side is well armed.

The gun grabbers have overreached and if they don’t withdraw their hands they will probably lose some fingers.

That pretty much says that for me ping.

I don't doubt they hate guns, too, but the white hot, blind, truly rabid portion of their hatred is reserved for uppity commoners who dare assert we have rights we're born with that government has neither power nor authority to take from us.

Jesus told us that this would be the case.

I don't hate the people who hate me, I just spend more time at the range.

Take a look at some of the sites where the proppressives tend to hang out – whew! They are full of hate like you wouldn’t believe.

And where hate is found there you will find Satan behind the hate.

Just read Frank Schaeffer's mouth foaming screed. It's pretty obvious where the hate problem is.
