In the video below, Chris Garris of the African-American group Bikes Out Guns Down tells it like it is to Georgia’s WJBF . . .
The killings that’s going on in these communities are basically done by people within the community. We need to stop blaming outside sources on our community problems and realize that the problems are born within the community itself. Nobody came from outside this community to commit these murders.
Well how about that? Someone who doesn’t blame “easy access to guns” for firearms-related crime. Or, if he does, he sees “gun violence” as a problem that must be tackled by the people who live where it occurs. (Notice the sign at the rally says “Bikers Against Crime” not “Guns”.)
For taking responsibility and his straight talk on firearms-related crime, Chris Garris is TTAG’s Gun Hero of the Day.
