Gutfeld: Does gun ownership make someone racist?

On Friday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” co-host Greg Gutfeld challenged a study released earlier this week that says there is a correlation between racism and gun violence.

The study, conducted by researchers Australia’s Monash University and Britain’s Manchester University, stated that whites are more prone to own guns and while blacks are more prone to be victims of gun violence. …

“Some foreign researchers published a study saying that owning a gun makes you racist,” Gutfeld said. “Now, before I debunk this crap, let’s see why they did this study. Researcher Kerry O’Brien tells The Daily News, quote, there have already been research showing blacks are more likely to be shot so we thought there must be something happening between the concept of being black and some whites wanting guns. Idiotic. Somehow Kerry manages not to finish his thought. Blacks are more likely to be shot — by other blacks. Over 91 percent of blacks are murdered by other blacks and 84 percent of whites are murdered by other whites. So even the premise is false.”
