Brady Campaign Racist?

From the Austin American-Statesman on the D'Cruz cases:
"This is an unprecedented attempt to arm teenagers ... even though most states currently restrict them from carrying a concealed weapon," said Daniel Vice , senior attorney for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence . "Teen gang members could buy guns if this law is changed."
James D'Cruz is Latino.

James D'Cruz is 18 years old.

By the logic of the Brady Center, the combination of the two makes James D'Cruz a potential "teen gang member". Nice racial stereotype, isn't it.

I guess this is no surprise given their recent attack on Mr. D'Cruz where they took Facebook postings out of context to conclude he is fascinated with "with gangsters and outlaws, often quoting them, and include violent, threatening messages."

By this logic, one would say the Yale Law Class of 1973 was filled with a bunch of hack politicians that slept with staff, attacks 18 year olds, and only got a job due to family connections. It makes as much sense.
