• Founder of “Black Guns Matter” Sounds Off on Gun Control Schemes

    With all the racial divide seemingly growing and the Black Lives Matter group right in the middle of it, it’s encouraging to see someone reaching into the black community to actually do some good.

    From Allen B. West:

    Twenty-nine-year-old Philadelphia native Maj Toure is the founder of Black Guns Matter, an organization he started to provide firearm training and education specifically for his fellow citizens of the “hood.”

    In an interview with Guns.com, Toure said, “Charlton Heston said it – you basically got to pry this out of my cold, dead hand. I’m not going down that way because we are citizens, Americans,” Toure told Guns.com. “We are citizens. We have the right to exercise the Second Amendment and anyone that’s tryin’ to infringe on that is not only in violation of the Constitution but they’re also just a dick.”

    “You know, our information base started to look as if – to us, it looked like this was deliberate – like there is a deliberate attempt to make sure that people in the hood don’t have firearms,” Toure said. “And then doing a little bit of research we start to see that all gun control laws come from right after the emancipation of newly freed African people. So that being the case, instead of complaining about we just came up with something that could address that ignorance and it’s Black Guns Matter.”

    Maj Toure is uniquely positioned to reach his friends and neighbors in some of the most dangerous areas in the country. His message of education and protection should ring true with Americans of all race or creed.

    “Gun control is a sham. It’s not about gun control. It’s about people control,” he said. “It’s about trying to convince people that somehow the government is going to be responsible for your safety. That’s the equivalent of saying, ‘Hey, we have fires. Take all of the fire extinguishers out of your home because if there’s a fire, the firemen will just come.’ No, we’re not doing it.”

    When asked if he feels gun ownership makes communities safer, Toure replied, “I don’t ‘feel,’ I know” and then explained why he knows:

    “Most violent crime is not committed by card-carrying good guys and card-carrying good girls, firearm owners. We’re very technical people, because if you do this wrong you get your hand blown off or your head blown off. So we’re very technical, pay-attention-to-detail, by-the-book people. And we respect the law. Again, that’s part of American culture … You take Texas, for example. There’s a culture there that you know that those people respect their firearms. And you as the bad guy or the bad girl, you’re not running into any house unless you wanna run into some buckshot. And you know that. So firearms are a deterrent.”

    The name may be provocative..Black Guns Matter...but what they are doing is much more important and serious work than simply an edgy name.
