The link between anti-gun and anti-male attitudes was further documented by H. Taylor Bruckner, in a 1994 paper entitled, "Sex and Guns: Is Gun Control Male Control?" From surveys of Canadian college students, Bruckner concluded:

Men and women have different patterns of motivation for being pro gun control. The men who favor gun control are those who reject traditional male roles and behavior. They are opposed to hunting, are pro homosexual, do not have any experience with or knowledge of guns and tend to have "politically correct" attitudes. The women who support gun control do so in the context of controlling male violence and sexuality. Gun control is thus symbolic of a realignment of the relation between the sexes.

Bruckner’s findings imply that there is more to the anti-gun movement than meets the eye. Publicly, it presents itself as a reasoned response to problems of crime and safety. But the movement’s true vitality may spring from its ability to tap into the deep, unconscious ambivalence that some women feel toward men and sex.

I think some people fail to understand the difference between links, co-occurences, and correlations. White box vans were linked to the DC shooters as the white box vans co-occurred with the shootings, only there was NO shooting-related correlation. The link and co-occurence was that the shooters were shooting in an area that had a whole lot of what box vans, some 20K of them.

I also like the surveys of collecge students, as if college students reflect anything of the regular population. Many medical studies were thought to be nice cross-sectional averages of the population until it was found that their cross-section was primarily 18-23 year old males, out of work, and who participated in studies for money. They didn't have regular sleep programs, drank too much, and the like.

What does that have to do with colledge campus women? Simple. They are not going to be a normal cross section of females in society. They are a cross section, just not normal.
