Right now, a lot of African-Americans feel like their lives are in danger. While we can argue until we’re blue in the face about whether the threat is justified or not, they feel it and feelings are powerful. Plus, honestly, I don’t know that they’re wrong.
Oh, I don’t think the police are looking to gun down black men out of some racist agenda or anything, yet African-Americans are far more likely to be the victim of homicide than any other ethnic group. That fact alone might make me more than a little concerned.
However, it seems one thing many black Americans are doing is precisely what many of us would do in their boat. They’re joining gun rights groups that cater to their needs.
