I hope this chapter and it’s members now realize that Democrat politicians and their lobbying allies (like Moms Demand Action, Everytown, Giffords, etc) really don‘t care about their safety or their rights. Vote them out (politicians) and don’t take shit from Bloomber’s moms.
Sacramento, CA (KOVR) -- Black Lives Matter Sacramento is taking new aim in their efforts to keep their community safe. The group is looking for sponsorships to get black community members trained in gun safety.
They are calling it a harsh realization in a world that fails to protect black people.
“We need to be armed. There is nothing wrong with it,” said Black Lives Matter Sacramento founder Tanya Faison.
For months, protests, calls for police accountability and concerns over white supremacy have been a top priority for Faison. Now she is making a new call to the public.
“Get protection in these times when we know we cannot call the police for help and where we know that we need to stay safe because it is a really volatile time right now,” she explained.
The Founder of BLM Sacramento put a message out on the group’s Facebook page asking for sponsors to pay for 10 people to get firearm training. The money would go towards anyone in the black community that is looking to sign up to learn about gun safety. The course would cover teaching everything from how to hold, clean, safely store and shoot a gun.
“I want us to be independent from the system and I want us to be educated and informed on what we are doing,” she explained.
Faison says gun education has nothing to do with their protest efforts, but she feels a necessary step for protection in situations including someone breaking into your home or attacks from white supremacists, for those who choose to apply for a concealed carry license.
“We need to be armed, we need to be safe, we are citizens here, we have equal rights here, the second amendment is our right too,” she said.
Do I agree with all of their reasons? No. The whole “white supremacy“ thing is way overblown as most people know (thanks MSM and Democrats). That’s a fringe element that doesn’t have any real power (not every non-Democrat is a ”white supremacist“). But I do agree that Tanya and her chapter have a right to be armed and get training to protect themselves (and they should). Being in the capital of California though, they’re going to be facing some hurdles when it comes to getting guns and ammo (gotta love insane waiting periods for background checks there).
I hope she and her people do look into Everytown/Moms Demand though. They love Gavin Newsome, Nancy Pelosi, and a whole bunch of other gun grabbers in CA. The organization(s) also have some severe problems with internal racism according to current and former employees....
The California based Firearms Policy Coalition even used screen grabs from those articles for one of their videos on the subject:
We wish the Sacramento BLM chapter well and hope they get armed and trained. There will be hurdles thanks to the politicians in power there and the laws they helped create/enact.
