    "The Age of Trump Is Producing More Black Gun Owners"

    Their motivations are most media created, but the side effect may also be more black Americans voting GOP once they realize how the Dems work so hard to disarm them. There may be an awaking of realization for black Americans who own gun legally the Dems really don't have their best interest in mind. How any person of color, Jew, or LGBT coild be for gun control boggles the mind. Surprising source of this info too, but does its best to make sure it's all Trump's fault:

    The Age of Trump Is Producing More Black Gun Owners

    CLEVELAND — When Lesley Green was a little girl in Houston in the 1960s — just a few decades after the routine lynchings of blacks in the South — her father would go off to work a late-night shift and leave a gun and a pile of bullets behind.

    If any strangers came looking for trouble, he told Green and her sister, you blast them into the stars.

    Nobody ever came looking. But even as an 11-year-old, learning to shoot a gun she could barely lift, Green said she recognized the important lesson her father was teaching her about being black in America: it’s a dangerous world out there, and neither the government nor the police are likely be there to save you if trouble decides to make a visit.

    Green kept a gun of her own into early adulthood but got rid of it once she settled down and had a family. In the 25 years since, Green, now 60 and living in Cleveland, hasn’t touched a gun. At least, not until the election of President Donald J. Trump.

    “There's some fiery rhetoric that some would say is incendiary racist rhetoric from the White House,” Green said on a recent evening, sitting in her living room sipping British tea from her finest tea set and nibbling on marble pound cake, cheese and crackers. “White supremacy groups are kind of feeling emboldened.”

    And so Green, a grandmother, is now in the market for a handgun.

    I agree with your assessment Will. The news is good, but the article is trash. The number of people who believe and are swayed by the MSM is always surprising and shocking to me. How do these people not recognize such blatant lies?

    I suspect when the Dems come to take their ability to defend themselves away "for their own good", that may be a light bulb moment for them.

    We can hope that is the case. Perhaps they won't be as tolerant to supportive of Republican attacks on the 2nd Amendment as a preponderance of Caucasians are.

    Decent article (albeit 2 years old) outlining the racist roots of gun control and how blacks see themselves as worth protecting.

    They hadn’t heard of BlackGunsMatter.com and Maj Toure yet. Gun rights and real empowerment are spreading in the black community. Libertarian urban education is happening. If you are on twitter or IG and not following @majtoure, get on that and support the work.

    Some of the most pro-gun people I know are otherwise-liberal black Democrats. It's an odd dynamic to be sure, but it's a step in the right direction.
    Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for those who do not.

    Too bad Green didn't learn a lesson about being vulnerable to criminals and the need to be able to defend yourself as being something that isn't really unique to race.

    Lots of Group A feel the need to arm themselves because of the actions of Group B and the representatives of both groups change constantly depending upon zip code and circumstances.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    When I read the title as "black gun" owners I was going to call BS.

    I know that there are obviously more black shooters at the public range than 10 years ago and it is a good trend - the more shooters/gun owners the better. Definitely seeing some GOOD shooters who are obviously ex-mil or current NGSF (Alabama) or police/fed.
