    Which of the founders views are you at odds with?

    This one:

    "I'm usually looked at like I'm a Martian," Davis said. "I mean, literally, if I come in and I get ready to go into the gun range, people are looking at me like, 'Why is she here? Black women don't shoot.' But we shoot."

    Because bullshit. Nobody gives a rat's ass whether you're black and/or female at the range. I wanna say it's really about 50/50 at the one I go to. Now the RSO's...those are 99% white and male. But I for one am glad the lanes don't look like it's the Aryan Nation on their day off.

    That's not the founder, but I disagree with that as well.

    "Well the NRA is good for some people that are having THAT perspective. Our perspective is for black folks."

    What perspective? Way to set yourself apart by race, for apparently no reason at all.

    "Them not speaking up says more to US than anything. Are you in agreement with that?.. If you're an organization that wants to get black folks to back you up..."

    Gimme a break. I wonder what kind of shit he says when he's NOT on camera.

    I'm Puerto Rican, I may as well be white, as far as this guy is concerned. You're more than welcome to disagree...

    The ranges I have gone into have had people of various ethnic and racial backgrounds. I would have never stared at anybody coming into the gun range. The more 2nd Amendment supporters the better.

    No I don’t necessarily disagree. I will say that when black shooters come to the indoor range I frequent, no question that people give them a second look because they are rare not necessarily because they are black. That said I can’t read people‘s minds so who knows. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a black female shooter at the range so that’s very rare. I also think it’s fine for individuals to have their own clubs or organizations that suit their particular focus or social group.

    I think the context the OP is using is NAAGA founder.

    Not the founding fathers context.

    Always good to have 2A supporters, but some of the folks in that article sound racist.

    How do you call bullshit on a person’s personal experience?! If you aren’t there, you don’t know.
