Which discernment is more credible or foolish? Is a White Northwestern study or a Black gun buyer? What is the core reason driving the need for gun ownership in the USA in the first place?

The Chicago Tribune article titled:  More first-time gun owners are Black, reported two statements:

“Given the timing of the second surge, James Druckman, a Northwestern political science professor who worked on the study, said many purchases were likely driven by concern over police violence. But Mark Oliva of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade group whose own survey found an increase in Black gun buying, said he believed the increase was motivated by more people worrying about personal safety after riots and increased crime.’

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb, an idiom, and my opinion of the core reason why more people feel the need to buy and carry a gun in the USA.

King Solomon

How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? (Proverb 1:22 KJV)


Knowledge without wisdom is a load of books on the back of an ass.”

What’s My Point?

I wonder if the college study writers lived in a predominately Black poverty high crime area would ever consider which entity to fear more to drive them the purchase a gun, the police or the gangs?

My point is not to accuse the professor of being a fool but to consider the root cause of why people are buying guns in the USA.

In My Opinion

The root reason is ever since the government took over teaching children to not be taught to believe in the Ten Commandments is the root cause.

And the reason less children attended private religious schools in both middle class and high crime poverty areas is because private schools are closing in higher rates than ever before because of one reason.

Anything that government becomes involved in drives up the costs of the product or service.

The result of government mandating school administration is less parents today can afford to pay two tuitions as was possible in the past. One tuition to fund a private religious school to teach in depth learning of a parent’s religious values to their children,

The other tuition to pay to fund public schools where the Supreme Court has ruled is illegal to teach the Ten Commandments to children.

The travesty is if anyone compares what the founders based the USA: Rights and Commandments, every article can be correlated to the Ten Commandments.
