Turns Out Gun Owners Aren't Bitter After All

Trigger Happy - WSJ.com Barack "Don't say my middle name" Obama pissed people off about guns, religion and being bitter. But it tuns out he should have checked the facts first.

Not that Liberals ever let a little thing like facts stand in their way.
Who are all these gun owners? Are they the uneducated poor, left behind? It turns out they have the same level of formal education as nongun owners, on average. Furthermore, they earn 32% more per year than nonowners.
There are the 34% of households that own guns. (San Fran Lefties probably won't believe this.)

And then there are the 36% of gun owners who say they are "very happy" as opposed to the 30% of non-gun-owners who are "very happy." It goes on from there, but I think you can see that "gun owners" as a group aren't bitter.

We give more to charity in terms of money (beyond what you would expect given the higher average income). We donate more blood.

So Senator Obama, do you want to talk about bitter gun owners? I didn't think so.
