Marchelle ‘Tig’ Washington – Gun Hero of the Day

Guns are for everyone. Well, everyone who wants one and can legally own one. The more people who learn to shoot and own firearms, the easier it will be to protect Americans’ right to keep and bear arms. One person who’s doing just that is Marchelle “Tig” Washington.

Through her business, Trigger Happy Firearm Instruction, the Army National Guard vet says her goal is to train one million women to shoot before she shuffles off this mortal coil. And to the extent that many of those women are from minority groups, so much the better.

Check out this profile video from HuffPost (yes, HuffPost):

For her dedication to spreading the gospel of firearm ownership, as well as defending and extending the right to keep and bear arms, Ms. Washington is TTAG’s gun hero of the day.

    The hero she sure is 🙂
    God bless her for doing noble work of promoting peace of mind, safety and security.

    Compromise means each side gives something up. The grabbers have no such intent.

    Good for her!!!

    I didn’t mean to be “that guy” above. 99% of what she said is on the money.

        Libbies really are trying to keep women and minorities down so that they can milk them for donations and votes for nonsensical feminista and SJW causes, just like how the NRA and Republican Party bends over, “compromises,” and even sells out unless we call them on their BS.

  5. avatar Mark C says:

    Even though (I hope) he said it facetiously, it doesn’t help the cause when a high-profile NRA Board Member says “Don’t ask why, just know that evil, dishonesty and scam artists have always been around and that right now they’re liberal, they’re Democrat, they’re RINOs, they’re Hollywood, they’re fake news, they’re media, they’re academia, and they’re half of our government, at least. So come to that realization. There are rabid coyotes running around, you don’t wait till you see one to go get your gun, keep your gun handy, and every time you see one, shoot one.”

    This just makes those who support 2A, appear like murderous lunatics. During the 2012 election he said “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” He also recommends decapitating Democrats: “We need to ride onto that battlefield and chop their heads off in November.” This isn’t how you win over the hearts and minds of those who are skeptical. It is also deeply un-American.

    1. avatar ThomasR says:

      Well Mark C, why not just give a link to the NRA member you talking about, or state his name, cuz I would be curious if he actually said these things.

      Otherwise, it is just baseless and nefarious rumors.

      1. avatar Mark N. says:

        Don’t tell us that you don’t recognize Ted Nugent by his actions and words.

        1. avatar ThomasR says:

          Mark N? Is that you Mark C? Hmmm. So there is still no links.

        2. avatar ironicatbest says:

          I do not like Ted Nugent. Ted Nugent I do not like you.

      2. avatar Mark C says:

        Very widely reported; use Google. I never link to people that support the murder of half the population.

        1. avatar ThomasR says:

          Well, there is yet to be a NRA member that has committed any mass murder. Unlike those mass murderers that have been mostly left leaning or Muslim. In fact, it has been the left that has been mostly supportive of the mass murder of the unborn, over 50 million in this country alone.

          So right now, the only group that has a history of accepting mass murder as a right is mostly on the left. And since they have been the ones to dehumanize us as being inhuman monsters that glory in the murder of school children because we defend the second amendment as a G-d given right, it would be the left that would be happy to march us into the ovens and push the on button themselves.

          After all, if they can justify the murder of the most helpless and defenseless as a “right”, it would be a small leap to justify the mass murder of those of us that have survived the womb.

          “Well, there is yet to be a NRA member that has committed any mass murder.”
          I don’t know what you call mass murder, but Timothy McVeigh had been an NRA member for 4 years prior to his bombing of the Edward R Murrow building, killing dozens of people and wounding over a hundred.

        3. avatar ThomasR says:

          Ummm, JWtaylor, if you are correct, I think your one exception has proved my point. So along with that one Christian that bombed that abortion clinic way back when; conservatives or NRA members or those Bible thumping clingers aren’t out there routinely, or even recently, mass murdering people on a regular basis, unlike leftists and muslims.

      “This just makes those who support 2A, appear like murderous lunatics.”

      So call me a murderous lunatic, because I agree with every word he said.

      1. avatar Kroglikepie says:

        Ditto. We have a sizable portion of the population that is openly advocating for the murder of those they either diasagree with or just don’t like. Removing them from the population at large is not murder, it’s self-defense.

        1. avatar Pat H says:

          You and Ted appear to be among those who openly advocate for the murder of others that you disagree with or just don’t like.

        2. avatar Kroglikepie says:

          And you would be 100% incorrect, but don’t let that stop you from assuming the worst of others.

  6. avatar Chris T in KY says:

    It is said that the 2nd Amendment was written in case the government turned tyrannical in the United States. Then the people could defend themselves against an evil government, using their second amendment rights.
    Well there was a tyrannical government in the United States it was called “Jim Crow”. And people like Robert F Williams, the Deacons for the Defense and Justice and even the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense and many others also used firearms to defend themselves against a tyrannical government in the United States.

    The scariest thing in America is indeed an articulate black person with a firearm.

    I heard Miss Washington last year on the Black man with Gun podcast, Rev. Kenn Blanchard, last year.

    And yes the NRA has helped black people in the past.

    1. avatar ThomasR says:

      You should clarify Chris T in Ky, the scariest thing to the Democrats / progressives is an articulate black person with a gun.

      It means that the articulate democrat black person with a gun is one step closer to no longer being a resident on the Democrat slave plantation. They might even go all the way to being free and become a Christian conservative.

      1. avatar Chris T from KY says:

        Thomas 4
        You are correct. I have found the Democrats to be totally frightened of any law abiding black person with a gun. Their history of writing Jim Crow laws is something they should never be allowed to forget.

    2. avatar Pat H says:

      When the Black Panthers began to open carry in California, the NRA helped write a bill making open carry more difficult. Governor Ronald Reagan signed it into law.

      Not exactly friendly to Black rights.

      1. avatar Chris T in KY says:

        When the White homosexual Tom Ammiano, and California law maker, who compares himself to black people and the race discrimination they have endured for over 400 years, I don’t think he and other white homosexuals in California have been the friends of black people.

        He as the state senate president, he supported a law also removing the last open carry law in California. This was back in 2014-15. Long after Reagan was dead. It was a black gay man who was open carrying a gun that was shown on TV. Ammiano’s response was ” He shouldn’t be doing that”.

        White homosexuals like Tom Ammiano are just as anti-civil rights as Gov George Wallace, Senator Strom Thurmond, Senator Eastland or mayor Rahm Emanuel. All of them are anti-gun civil rights, when it comes to law abiding black people.

        Anti-gun rights history in California does not stop at the 1960s Mulford Act. It lives on in the laws passed by white homosexuals who call themselves “a minority” while they work to take away the civil rights of black people.

        , .

        1. avatar Pat H says:

          Even if that whole spiel is true, it’s only tangentially related to what I said.

          The fact is, the NRA’s record on minority gun ownership has been mixed at best.

          Ronald Reagan could not be a board member for today’s NRA with his record.

      2. avatar Chris T in KY says:

        Pat H
        The old NRA leadership’s decision to back gun control under Governor Reagan doomed their time at the NRA. Even Adam Winkler the anti-gun writer acknowledges it caused the Revolt in Cincinnati Ohio at the NRA meetings that threw out those traitors that conspired with Governor Reagan on gun control. It motivated younger leaders and changed the NRA completely making it a true civil rights organization that it is today.

        If you can send a Link to the NAACP supporting gun civil rights, you let me know.

        There seems to be people who I would consider to have a Ronald Reagan fetish when it comes to .comments on gun control. They act as if he is the only person in the state of California to a past gun control on the past. The fact that you and the others are avoiding the white homosexuals who now control the political structure at a state level tells me a lot about you and your avoidance of those people who are NOW responsible for gun control in the state of California.

    Great work she is doing.

    Mortal coil? The earth? I was informed it’s a spinning disk, I’d have to go with the spinning disc vs. the coil. …… Yes it’s very heartening to see more of the tender gender getting involved with firearms. Pro 2a wemon throwing a bitch fit ( hell hath no fury like that of a woman’s) would get of a lot more done about gun rights then an OFWG.

      “To sleep–perchance to dream: Ay, there’s the rub,
      For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
      When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
      Must give us pause.”

      Enough said.

      1. avatar Matt in SC says:

        That made me think of a book I had almost 30 years ago, “My Little Green Book of Sea Sickness”. This was on the back cover.

        Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer silently 
        The derision of those who suffer not,
        Or to lose lunch bravely into a sea of troubles 
        And by purging end them? To die, to hurl,
        No more – and thereby end 
        The bellyache and the thousand natural revulsions 
        That seagoing flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation 
        Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep;
        To puke: perchance to hurl: aye, there goes the grub.
