National Range Day looks to promote black gun ownership through education and training nationwide on June 13. The range event invites black gun owners to come together at local ranges to train, learn, and meet other gun enthusiasts and instructors.
Organizer Marchelle “Tig” Davis of My Sister’s Keeper said this is an excellent opportunity for new gun owners and seasoned veterans to network, shop for guns, and even sign-up for future gun-related classes with local instructors. In addition to promoting gun ownership, Davis hopes the movement can also dispel stereotypes.
“In light of recent events, I thought it necessary to create a national movement to encourage all African Americans to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. We feel that our right to bear arms enforces and protects our right to free speech,” Davis said in a news release. “This day will defeat stereotypes regarding black gun ownership and signify a major shift in US gun culture.”
