The gun-rights rally in Virginia on Monday was peaceful, despite leftists’ and mainstream media’s expectations that “white supremacists” with all those scary-looking firearms were going to shoot somebody.
Black Americans support gun rights, too, and they should be on the front lines pushing back against the government’s attempts to infringe on their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
In 2018, a black, gun-owning, tax-paying American named Mark Robinson spoke at a city council meeting in Greensboro, North Carolina, to do just that.
Robinson passionately defended his right to own guns, even in the wake of mass shootings.
Robinson said he’s a law-abiding citizen, but every time there’s a mass shooting, “nobody wants to put the blame where it goes, which is at the shooter’s feet,” he said. “You want to put it at my feet. You want to turn around and restrict my right, constitutional right spelled out in black and white. You want to restrict my right to buy a firearm and protect myself from one of the very same people you’re talking about in here tonight.”
Robertson called it ridiculous. He said that the law-abiding citizens in the community and around the country are the first ones taxed, the last ones considered, and the first ones punished when mass shootings happen. Robinson said he’s not giving up his guns without a fight.
Robinson’s common sense defense of his individual right to keep and bear arms for protection was so good, the NRA invited him to give a speech at their leadership forum. Watch the rest of the clip.
