    Yes Therious ... not that i am in it ... but i remember this Brother that joined us years ago ... BMWAG

    He only talked with us once, but he was so moving, it's remained with me always.

    He encouraged us to become members of the national rifle association, responsible gun owners, all of that.

    Here's a post i shared about him before ... Kenneth V. F. Blanchard, Black Man With a Gun.

    never thought about joining actually. I do know two members but they're white. I'd need to research the org first. Outsider lookin in perspective: it gives of a 'right' wingnut sorta vibe. I like to join factions and interest groups but I can't be associated with anything 'radical'....

    I like to shoot but ... perhaps most importantly. ...I believe in 'castle rights' and the right to protect loved ones, strangers in need and self. I'm proud to call myself a native Texan and southerner on that note. Ppl oughta see how much average folks down here are FORCED to defend against home intruders....

    Every weekend during the holiday season? Its a killin'...literally. Of course, its not about protecting 'things'....but you really don't know someone's intentions....and in situations like that? You're not going to stand there and play '20 Questions'...with some stranger in your home.

    i'm having a problem with some people not caring to control their pitt bulls on the block.
    i need to know where i can go to learn basic fire arm handling and how to shoot.
    i also need to go about getting a permit to carry in PA.

    can i do this stuff without going to the NRA?

    not sure about the NRA,but you can rent a gun and practice at any privately owned firing range that offers rentals, many times there will be instructors willing to assist, some ranges offer classes too.

    Every black man and woman who can own a gun, should own a gun. Exercise your second amendment rights.

    And if you're a gun control advocate, you should know that nothing scares people into doing gun control than hundreds of thousands of blacks exercising their second amendment rights.

    When the Black Panthers walked around with weapons they were QUICK to pass gun laws.

    Joining the NRA is not necessary. Just get a permit and know the laws in your state regarding guns. Practice at the range and know how to handle a firearm. Also, learn how to keep your firearm locked up...
