The Not F***ing Around Coalition, which garnered headlines a few weekends ago when hundreds of black gun owners marched through Stone Mountain Park in Georgia, is heading to Louisville, Kentucky this weekend for a “muster” that the group’s founder says will bring thousands of armed demonstrators to the city. The Louisville Police Department acknowledged on Tuesday that they’ve seen social media posts indicating that the group is planning a visit and declaring that they’ll reach out to the NFAC to try to make contact beforehand, adding:
As with all protests we learn about, we attempt to reach out to organizers to understand what their plans are. We have had several protests posted over the past several weeks, some of which have occurred and some which have not. We will take the appropriate steps to prepare for whatever may occur.”
The Louisville Courier-Journal has a few more details, including confirmation from John “Jay” Johnson, who’s the founder and “Grand Master” of the NFAC, that the group will be meeting at a local high school at noon on Saturday. Johnson says those wanting to march must adhere to their uniform requirements, and must come armed.
