NRATV: Maj Toure & Black Guns Matter

This morning on Stinchfield, live from the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Atlanta, Maj Toure of Black Guns Matter speaks with Grant and Bill Whittle at the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings in Atlanta about being a black conservative in today's world.

Toure just wrapped up a 13-city tour and is now expanding the Black Guns Matter movement to all 50 states. His organization's mission is to educate urban communities on their 2nd amendment rights and responsibilities through firearm training and education. The transformation happens, Toure said, when people recognize the science involved in guns.

"Because I'm a 'trusted source' in the sense that I come from the same community that they're in, they know that 'ok this person probably doesn't have an interest in tricking me,'" he said. "Then when you show them the math, they see that the person they voted for, their policy might actually be in opposition to a lot of their freedoms."

As a kid growing up in the inner city of Philadelphia, Toure said that he could "get a gun before I could get a soda." The problem with that, he said, is that people have to learn to respect the tool and educate themselves in the proper process involved in acquiring a firearm. 

Stinchfield airs live on NRATV weekdays at the top of the hour from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET.
