Black Guns Matter In Chicago

Maj Toure, Founder of Black Guns Matter, tells reporters and supporters, “I don’t think there’s a black gun culture or white gun culture, I think there’s an informed gun culture and an ignorant gun culture.” On this edition of Upstream Ideas’ ‘Fresh Cuts,’ Maj joins Host Jeff Coleman along with WLS-AM talk show host Stephanie Trussell and Noil Petroleum Corporation CEO & President Steve Neely to discuss his views.


Gun Control Is People Control

What is gun control really about? Free men and free women own guns, and gun ownership is a civic exercise in citizenship that empowers people and changes people. On a practical level, shouldn’t all people be able to protect the things and people they value and love? On this installment of Against the Current, Dan Proft talks with the founder of Black Guns Matter, Maj Toure, a solutionary, translator, and movie reviewer. How does Maj respond to politicians who say the NRA is a terrorist organization? In the 2016 Presidential race, Maj was not "with her," did his decision have something to do with “Super Predators.” Dan and Maj discuss gun control, crime, and personal empowerment.


Do Something

How many more shootings before we do something?

That is, how many more good guys with guns have to stop bad guys with guns before we stop stigmatizing inanimate objects?

The high school resource officer in Dixon, Illinois, and the Good Samaritan outside the restaurant in Oklahoma City aren’t inanimate objects or a three-letter acronym so they are of minor, passing interest to the DC press corps.

While well-intentioned Americans want to hear ideas about improving public safety, champagne socialists are interested only in using people’s fears against them to leverage more power over them.

This fact was laid bare in a recently released email exchange between Obama consiglieres Rahm Emanuel and Arnie Duncan two days after the Sandy Hook massacre.

In the exchange, Rahm tells Duncan, “Go for a vote this week asap before it fades. Tap peoples [sic] emotion. Make it simple assault weapons."

The dizzying intellect that is Arne Duncan replied, “Yup-thanks.”

Do you understand now?

Do you understand how little the Political Royals think of you and that they care for you even less than that?

They are as cavalier with your life as they are craven in using the lives of 20 dead children to manipulate you.

You might consider this when you’re deciding how much of your life to turn over to them.
