Quick poll. Since there is a common perception out there that "gun people" are "middle aged, white guys," I thought I would do a poll to see if we match that perception here.

I'm right there in the stereotype demographic. I was thinking of making a "Soft White Guy" badge.

What happens if you're not white? Or if you're a woman?
Since there is no classification for gender or race/color, it kinda makes the poll meaningless. No?

How do you find out what percentage of the total are middle aged white men from a poll like this? Even if only white males fill out the poll?

You can only do one poll per thread. This isnt scientific, just a curiosity.
