Oregon Legislator: Pro Gun Bills Are Racist

Oregon State Representative Lew Frederick says efforts to hang on to Bill of Rights gun rights and rebuff efforts to curb those rights are all about Barack Obama being re-elected.  In other words, if you support your Constitutional right to "keep and bear arms" and are against efforts to curb those rights, you're a racist.

I expected more from Lew Frederick, the African American former Portland Public Schools spokesman and reporter who is actually quoted in this (http://www.oregonlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2013/02/bill_in_oregon_legislature_see.html#) about a bill in the state legislature,

Rep. Lew Frederick, D-Portland, said the bill's chances of going anywhere are "none.""My response to it is pretty straightforward: That's nonsense," he said. "It's a symbolic gesture trying to deal with the fact that Barack Obama was re-elected. That's the undercurrent of all of this."
  Frederick's anti white, Asian  and Hispanic response is beneath him. He should apologize to Oregonians for his reflexively racist assumptions about people who simply are battling back against his party's efforts to curb their most fundamental American rights. Shame on you.
