  1. I am neither black or gay, but I would happily support both this organization and pink pistols. For gun rights to survive and thrive we must be both diverse and inclusive. The second amendment is for everyone.

    1. avatar Cameron B says:

      agreed, I’m more than happy to welcome others into the 2A world whatever org they belong to.

    2. avatar gsnyder says:

      If a gay person invites you to join a membership where they will be firing pink pistols need I warn you the event may be other than what you expected?

      Diversity is a “nice to have”, not a “must have.” Quantity is paramount. Focus on a common commitment to firearms freedom, and diversity will follow as a natural consequence. After all, a great many people from all walks of life value their freedom.

      However, focus first on diversity for diversity’s sake, and you’ll achieve two things:

      1. You’ll bang your head against the brick wall of collectivists, people for whom firearms freedom and the individuality it implies are alien and hostile concepts. You’ll gain few, if any, converts.

      2. You’ll entice freedom hating collectivists into the shooting sports, and they’ll like it, for themselves. These will swell the ranks of the Fudds. These will be people who like to shoot their guns, but they don’t know what it means. So they won’t vote prudently.

      Now they’ll be armed with firearms credibility and their diversity bona fides, both of which they’ll wield against us politically to restrict our rights.

      So focus first on people whose minds are already fertile ground for freedom to take root. Introduce firearms, those appliances of liberty, to these people first.

      I agree 100%, Chris; in fact, I have been a member of NAAGA for about six months now, and I completely support their mission (as I do the Pink Pistols). Diversity is paramount, and the old-school/old-fool white male gun owner/teacher/mall ninja who insults, degrades, or patronizes women or minorities from a shooting range or gun shop is an absolute idiot, and is the TRUE enemy of the 2nd Amendment.

      Such diverse people are our future, and I welcome that future whole hardheartedly.

    Cue the inevitable “Why can’t there be a whites-only gun organization!” from someone who is more comfortable with reacting than reading.

    1. avatar Jacob McMerth says:

      Cue the inevitable guy who says cue the inevitable …

      1. avatar Dustin says:

        Cue my inability to give a sh!t.

        1. avatar Defens says:

          mmmm – Bar Be Cue

  3. avatar Brian says:

    I’d consider it, but the mention of the Black Panthers on their site gives me pause.

    1. avatar Jesus Christ says:

      And yet you’d have no problem associating with Republicans and Donald Trump. Right?

      1. avatar Brian says:

        You might be surprised!

      2. avatar Dustin says:

        Eh, they’re not my favorite people, but I like Trump and the Repubs more than agitating lairs.

      3. avatar Ben says:

        Are you insinuating that Republicans and Trump are violent racists and womanizers? Haven’t seen Trump or Republican Party-sponsored groups intimidating people at voting booths.

        1. avatar Paelorian says:

          The original, real Black Panthers definitely had flaws, but they didn’t do that.

    2. avatar Dustin says:

      Should they ignore the truth instead? The idea of the Panthers was not originally a bad thing… They covered the topic. Should we just ignore Jim Crow laws instead of… Oh nevermind…

      1. avatar Stan Darsh says:

        True. Although the liberals in NC ignore a Jim Crow law in the form of the ‘Pistol Purchase Permit’ scheme.

    3. avatar Warren says:

      Yes actual history often disturbs those of weak mind.

    4. avatar int19h says:

      The original Black Panthers were an organization advocating armed resistance to the blatant violations of their natural rights and freedoms by the state, in the best spirit of “Sic Semper Tyrannis”.

    5. I signed up but haven’t been able to access the forum.

  4. avatar Wv cycling says:

    That email address is a typo waiting to happen.

    1. avatar JR Pollock says:

      I was thinking the same thing, but figured I’d let someone else point it out…

      Seriously though, I hope they do well. More guns in the hands of law abiding people of any color is a good thing. It can only help to break the near monopoly on black voters that the Democrats currently enjoy.

      1. avatar Paelorian says:

        Just like the National Association for Gun Rights, I can see the acronym being a minor problem. Tim from Military Arms Channel posted that he took off his NAGR bumper sticker after being flipped off by many idiots who thought it was some kind of racist statement. They should just change their acronym to NAFGR, and I encourage NAAGAs to do likewise. If you’re black and have N-word privileges it won’t be too problematic to wear NAAGA hat, but the acronym is probably going to cause some awkwardness when supporters who are not black mention the organization. NA-AGA would be a quick fix. USAAGA (United States African-American Gun Association) would be better, or another term could be substituted for “African-American” if the membership considers another term equally acceptable. But hey, I’m not a NAAGA, so you guys do what you want and I’ll support you. (Look, I’m already joking about the acronym… I can’t help myself…)

    Any organization that fosters more gun ownership and pro-gun views to the African American community is a good thing. Too many blacks see guns as something to fear or an object that is only used by gang bangers and thugs. If that group begins to see guns also as tools for protection and sports we may be on the way to way more acceptance of firearms and more support of the 2nd Amendment among those in that community.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      ” Too many blacks see guns as something to fear or an object that is only used by gang bangers and thugs.”

      Black community opinion on guns has taken a *massive* positive sea change in the past 20 years and shows no indication of slowing.

      I’m convinced a substantial part of the drive of that change is our current President.

      Blacks are waking up and starting to responsibly tool up, and that is positive for all our rights…

  6. avatar Dustin says:

    I find it kinda weird. Wasn’t the NRA, which already exists, founded for pretty much the exact same reasons? The NRA, the very first civil rights organization ever created, for the purpose of giving guns to blacks so they could defend themselves from democrat lynch mobs… I’m not mocking them. I just find it enlightening to know that even though an organization intended for that purpose can be so fraudulently misrepresented by the media (and effectively) that it seems like there is a need to create the exact same thing twice… And kinda funny that the deceptive efforts of that media can be so simply and obviously undermined by, you know, just doing the same thing again… Just keep telling the lie until everyone believes it. Just keep telling the truth until the contrast gets obvious… It so, uh, black and white…

    1. avatar Kelly in GA says:

      My pastor in his sermon mentioned that as a mark of evil. Repeating lies until the lie becomes truth. Seems fitting. (He is a gun guy, too.)

    2. avatar Craig says:

      The NRA was originally founded because Union troops didn’t have enough shooting skills during the Civil War. In the 1870s, target shooting was a popular sport (i.e. Creedmore Matches and US vs. Ireland shooting match).

      To argue the NRA was founded as a civil rights organization to arm freedmen is a bit of a stretch.

      1. avatar William says:

        Were some of those Union troops black?

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:

          “Were some of those Union troops black?”

          In combat only towards the end of the war. The 1989 movie ‘Glory’ was about the 54th Massachusetts and well worth the watch…

  7. avatar Adam says:

    NAAGA, please…….

    (Couldn’t resist)

    1. avatar JR Pollock says:

      Maybe Mr. Smith has a sense of humor and chose that acronym deliberately….

  8. avatar Chip Bennett says:

    I would consider donating, as a sign of solidarity with their efforts, but their “History of Guns in the African American Community ( Past & Present )” conspicuously omits the critical role that NRA played in helping to arm and to defend otherwise disarmed and defenseless free blacks after the Civil War:

    http://www.naaga.co/#history-of-guns

    The nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization is one of the primary reasons that black Americans were able to provide for their own armed defense against the KKK, and remains the staunchest supporter and defender of those rights against the KKK’s descendants in the Democrat party who are still trying to disarm law-abiding black Americans. Yet the only mention NRA gets on their website is under “Competitive Shooting”? Really?

  9. avatar Bob says:

    I think this is a good thing. some people of color may have a poor perception of the NRA or GOA.

    Removing that potential bar and normalizing firearms in citizens, is good. Surprised it took this long, certainly does say something about the stigma of guns in certain minority cultures

    1. avatar Slimjim9 says:

      I agree with this. Both the NRA and GOA and highly involved in the political process and rightly so. Given the extremely anti-gun rhetoric and policies of most in the Democratic Party, the NRA and GOA end up fighting against the Democrats at almost every turn. But the vast majority of African American voters are – guess what – Democrats. So if you’re trying to promote to African Americans the benefits and duties of responsible gun ownership, it is going to be very hard to do that under the umbrella of NRA/GOA. It can’t be by accident that the NAAGA web site is almost completely devoid of politics.

    Kenn Blanchard, Mr. Colion Noir, The African American Gun Club, Rick Ector and now this.

    Hillary just dropped a load in her depends.

  11. avatar Chris T from KY says:

    Very few white people truly understand just how bad the public education system is in black inner city schools. The US Constitution is not taught. The civil right to keep and bear arms is not taught.

    All you have to do is watch the video of the oath keepers on their last mission to Ferguson Missouri, when these white AR15 open carrying gun owner’s tell the law abiding black people they do have a right to own the same AR15s.
    Many of them believe only a white person can have an AR15.

    I understand their is a plan for a racially integrated AR15 open carry march. I hope they have it. It would terrify the white liberals and their sellout ass kissing black allies.
    Real freedom is scary to tyranny.

  12. avatar Jim Bullock says:

    You know, when the anti-gunners go even more full-Uncle-Saul, as described here:

    http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2015/11/robert-farago/moveon-orgs-plan-to-destroy-the-national-rifle-associations-credibility-in-washington/

    Hey, there’s *other* orgs, and eve orgs aligned with the officially oppressed people the bad-guy org is supposed to be against. Maybe issue is the issue.

    I particularly like this from the new-ish group’s site: “True freedom for any person should be judged by the ability to protect him or herself within that Society.”

    Civil rights are for everyone. Rule of law is for everyone.

  13. avatar Mack Bolan says:

    Be wary of any organization which promotes its racial component ahead of its values. Waving the black flag should be the first indicator that there is an agenda, and gun rights is probably a distant second or third.

    Look for quotes from this organization appearing in support of the MDA,CSGV, Bloomberg machine complete with race card in full display. I would also be curious if Bloomberg doesnt have some money involved in this as well.

    1. avatar CarlosT says:

      It might be a false flag, but it could also be like Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, a completely sincere group trying to reach out to a group that has been largely opposed to gun rights.

      1. avatar Paelorian says:

        Yeah, as a JPFO member I think it’s about time there was an organization like NAAGA! It’s not about ethnic or racial division, it’s about reaching out to our own communities that are often ignorant about firearms and using our shared background to reach them and educate. This can be an accessible first step with less cross-cultural baggage or culture shock than going straight to the NRA or GOA. These organizations, just like regional organizations, feed into the NRA and GOA and other national organizations. We’re all in this together, after all, but we can also help by working within our local communities and engaging voters.

  14. avatar jwm says:

    5 K run? What part of OFWG are they having trouble understanding? Now a 5 hour bbq cookoff and sampling, I could get behind that.

    1. avatar Roymond says:

      Until my hips went bad, my response to a 5k run would have been “Come on, let’s do some REAL running!”

      1. avatar jwm says:

        Mayhap I’ve stumbled across the reason your hips went bad….

  15. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Scanned their website-nothing horrible to ME. They appear to be an ally. For you who fail to dig-the original Black Panthers were not the so-called new BP(who are low-life rabble rousers).And it was the “hero” Reagan who banned open-carry in California-brothers just tryin’ to protect their own… Got the brown loved ones so I’m inclined to give them some leeway. They are not pro-democrat or Obama on FB either. Not at all sure if any of this translates into any republican pro-gun voting…all of this is what I see in ALL the local gun shops/ranges-lots of brown skinned folks.

  16. avatar DAN V says:

    So… NAAGA?

  17. avatar Justin Tang says:

    That’s great news… but I’m still waiting for an Asian American gun rights group. I’m Chinese, pro-gun and libertarian.

    1. avatar JohnF says:

      So start one! I’m Irish, but I’d join.

      While you’re at it, maybe you could get the Libertarians to nominate a candidate for president who actually has a chance of winning and won’t just split the conservative vote and give the victory to Hillary!

      1. avatar JSJ says:

        I’d start the Sicilian gun owner’s club, but I have a feeling I know how it would end up 🙂

    2. avatar Paelorian says:

      Just like we at JPFO have a valuable unique perspective in speaking about the Holocaust, and NAAGA has a huge amount of African-American history I hope they’ll bring up, an Asian-American gun rights organization would have a very valuable perspective in speaking about historic injustices and Japanese-American internment in the United States. How about a gun rights organization for American Indians! They’d definitely have a lot to bring to the table. Once again, it’s not about dividing us all into little racial or ethnic organizations, it’s about reaching out to our communities to educate people about firearms. Everyone who joins an organization like JPFO or NAAGA should at least join the NRA as well. Definitely Gun Owners of America too, if they agree with them.

      1. avatar Justin Tang says:

        In addition to the Japanese American internment camps, the Asian American side can also address WW2 Japanese atrocities such as the Rape of Nanking, and various killings by the CCP, all of which are my reasons for dismissing gun control.
