Kenn Blanchard of Black Man with a Gun has a short article and video on The Rights of Gun Owners. There is also a longer podcast recording through the link.
What do you do after you buy your firearm, learn, train, share your knowledge and have fun with it? You have to defend your right to it. Politically– gun control is a staple in America. And after the past four years, this country is more divided than it was since 1975.
If you are a new gun owner, I am asking you to consider becoming a gun rights activist. If you belong to a new gun club or group, I am suggesting that someone be designated to be the legislative rep; the one that learns about gun laws, state bills, issues for the rest. The one that will make time to go and sit, talk to, represent us.
With the increase of black, brown and other gun owners from what is called Traditional, there is a need for us to also step up and represent our clubs, associations and rights. As America mends, as the Republic repairs itself, it is going to be slow. Our enemies will take this opportunity to hurt the future of ALL gun owners.
This is my appeal. Uncle Kenn Wants You!
I am asking you to do more than wear black battle fatigues and parade around. I’m asking you to do more that show off your range time “kings and queens” on social media.
Social media has created an environment of fearlessness, carelessness, thoughtlessness, hopelessness, false bravado, misinformation, and racism. Those things have always been but it has upped its game.
When the dust settles, and the battle for gun rights begins again, the sage gun clubs, organizations and cool old white guys will be dismissed like the middle of the road folks have been. They will be compared to and accused of being insurrectionist, racist and nuts 10 x more than before. WHY – because they helped. They made it easy. They fell into the trap.
Friends I am talking to you. We have been pitted against each other; SUCCESSFULLY. Your hot buttons have been pushed. You’ve exercised your rights to speak out and do what you wanted and it hurt us all.
From my optic, law enforcement has less support than since 1968. (Successful campaigns)
Attention whores rule social media and magazines covers.
There will be less interaction between the new gun owner and the old because of the discourse, media and stances folks have taken. (propaganda)
We are caught up in the fantasy. We still want to be crusaders, black panthers, confederates, punishers, tactical spectacular militia and minute-men.
