I do not support the Black Lives Matter movement. However, I fully support Black Guns Matter! Firearm ownership among black Americans has surged in recent months. According to Politico, it's jumped quite bit "since the beginning of the pandemic."
That's seriously amazing! I'd like to see more Americans practicing their Second Amendment rights! Especially as the left pushes to defund the police, we must protect ourselves.
National African American Gun Owners’ Association (NAAGA) president Philip Smith has seen as many as 2,000 new members a day since coronavirus warnings and shutdowns began impacting the country earlier this year. That rush in membership only continued following the May 25, 2020, death of George Floyd.
Smith intimated that the very onset of the coronavirus made some black Americans give gun ownership serious thought for the first time: “If you have a half a brain in your head even saying, ‘Oh, this might get serious, let me plan accordingly.'”
His group “has grown to more than 30,000 members” this year and has nearly 90,000 online followers.
On June 11, 2020, PRNewswire reported that “90% of NAAGA’s members are African American, more than half of them women, and over 1,000 are law enforcement and military.”
Black Gun Owners Association’s Derrick Morgan also explained the increase in black American gun ownership by presenting through a prism of coronavirus fears, but he also pointed to police response times.
“A lot of people are reaching out to us, mainly new gun owners and people who wouldn’t have considered owning a gun or firearm for their protection, have been lining up to purchase firearms and access information from our website," said Morgan.
NAAGA’s Philip Smith added that this is too big of a movement to be a fad. “The days are over of African Americans sitting around singing Kumbaya and hoping and praying that somebody will come and save them. We’re gonna save ourselves, and any politician that wants our vote moving forward, they better be on the side of our thinking otherwise, you’re not gonna get our vote. We’re not gonna be sheep anymore.”

Over the weekend in Aurora, Colorado, the Black Lives Matter protesters proved once again how terribly violent creatures they are.

HIDDEN CAMERA: Hollywood Actor Gets Visit from Secret Service After Making Threatening Tweet
If you were wondering how deep Trump Derangement Syndrome can run, well look no further than this.
The sad truth is that most liberals hate President Trump so much that they end up making threats against either the President, his family, or his supporters. None of which are acceptable in a civilized society.
