We also had a special appearance by...

MajToureMaj Toure, Founder of Black Guns Matter (BGM), a group to help urban communities learn their gun rights and responsibilities.

“The Second Amendment is color blind, and the human right to self-defense is meant for all people, including oft-forgotten individuals of urban communities,” says Maj Toure, BGM Founder and leader of the group’s 50 state tour.

Each BGM event includes demonstrations and discussions with experts including certified firearms instructors, lawyers, and Second Amendment activists. Throughout the nationwide BGM class, Toure, a Philly Hip Hop artist turned activist, sounds the alarm on politicians who espouse that urbanites should trust government to keep them safe, while, simultaneously, politicians have failed to do just that.

Our Featured Speakers included...

Armed America Radio host Mark Walters, noted author Alan Korwin and criminal defense attorney Marc Victor
