Jesse Abbate on Getting Minorities Into Shooting by Robert Farago | Apr 29, 2011 | 5 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments michael says: April 29, 2011 at 19:33 Frankly, I (white male) got “into shooting” because minorities already were.

Since leaving the military I have had significant training most at moyock. Most minorities especially black people do not get exposed to proper shooting instruction and safety.That’s why you have these gangbanger assholes running around killing themselves and law abiding citizens. I’m all for concealed carry, these assholes will continue to commit crimes unless more and more law abiding citizens who just happen to be minorities get reliable firearms instruction to defend themselves.
