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.

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

    • (gleefully rubs hands together and grins nefariously…)

      • 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

      • 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.

  4. 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.

    • Shakespeare. Hamlet. Soliloquy.

      “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.

      • 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.
