Some people can find negaitive things to say about anything. Thanks for starting this group. Can you please direct me to a similar training in the San Francisco/Oakland Ca. area? Thanks

I would submit that he also (and, for me, more importantly) has a DUTY before our Creator to protect kith and kin.


My friend tells me its Black capital B . I tell him it’s ok it’s Cracka big C. But all we see is green , how much money can we get from people.

This is great to have an organization that takes a Black perspective. .

Congratulations and keep up the good work! The more we can educate, the less fear and misunderstanding there will be about firearms. Another national organization showing support for our 2nd Amendment Right is great, and moving forward will make us all stronger as we struggle to protect this very important right!

This country will stay divided as long as Americans put a hyphen in front of their name. The use of the term African American did not start in this part of the country until approximately thirty years ago. I watched on TV one time where brown (most are brown not black) Americans did not consider a white guy that was born in Africa to be an African American. Go figure.
Most people know my opinion about what makes an American so I will not repeat myself. Merry Christmas!


You make a very important observation. I have always believed that American Aboriginals put themselves at peril when they refer to themselves as African-American. The term was rejected in large by our society and was implemented through a special council facilitated by the early Black Caucus and self proclaimed, Negro leaders like Jesse Jackson. Personally, I self describe as ‘Negro’ because it was what the early white colonists called us when they arrived on our shores. Certainly, there is more to our identities than that – whole languages, customs and traditions lost in the wake of the white man’s civilization.… Read more »

I looked at joining their organization however I feel their application is a bit too intrusive into my privacy. It is none of their business what type of firearm i own or my area of interest regarding firearms. Those questions are forced answer and required. They don’t even seem to have an appropriate category for me to put. Unfortunate as I will not divulge that information and therefore cannot join them. Looks like they are free (until 1/2017) because they are gathering data on members (directed advertizing purposes such as selling their member list to self defense courses, completions, etc?)… Read more »

Do you have a chapter in North Texas?


How I define myself is really nobody else’s concern, maybe people should worry about themselves instead worrying about what the f**k black people or african american call themselves. what the f**k do you care for any way? tend to your own f**king business.

Very well stated. Thank you.

Anthony Minichini

In the Marines we were taught that “all Marines are green”. That said I applaud this emphasis on firearm skills, safety and ownership by members of the Black community. My hope is that it will better illuminate for many African-Americans the conservative political view toward protection of their 2nd Amendment rights.. This sniping at someone’s preferred cultural identity serves no good purpose.

Ken Rowe

Another Jarhead here, with mega dittos for the above statement from Anthony Minichini. Ideally, I prefer to see more black people and women participating in the traditional associations, like the NRA, and local gun clubs (and that is something that has been growing for years) but I can appreciate that some might feel the need for a 2A organization with an explicitly black perspective. I never really got the need for the Black Shopping Network, either, but I guess it fills a similar need. In any event, the more pro-2A groups the better. Whether you are a black, white (or… Read more »


I wish this label would go away. It is pointless. As an American citizen you are “an American” – doesn’t matter what color or race you are! So who would be an “African American”? A dark skinned Caucasian from Egypt? A pinkish Caucasian from South Africa? A Negro from Nigeria, or perhaps even a Mongoloid born in Uganda. All now US citizens. How in the world did the term “African” get to only apply to Black Negroes? Lets add to that all the Black Caucasians in Northern India – they have Caucasian features, but are as Black as Black can… Read more »


Did you not see at the end of the article where it says ANYONE may join?


Just curious, have you expressed this same displeasure to those that refer to themselves as Italian-American, Polish-American, ect.?


I will call them African American if they will call me English, Sottish, Irish, American.

I’d join up but I’m not from Africa America.
Still, I wish them the best of luck and 8 may even throw em a donation or two.
If someone starts a club for Americans, let me know.


You can start whatever you want.


Who is the contact in New Mexico?

It’s a great thing to see the African American community in joining the rest of us good law abiding Citizens in our rights to self defense and the fight against the socialist gun grabbing liberals. Keep up the good work and train your members well in gun safety and home and personal defense, it will pay off for them should they need to use their training!


Nothing wrong with that…and Welcome.


Just curious, what country in Africa was Mr. Smith born in? I have a friend, Takumba, he was born in Kenya. Then I have some Black friends who were born in Oakland. Takumba calls himself an African-American, my other friends just call themselves Americans.

Every man has the Right to Protect Himself, His Family, and Those whom he considers important and worthy of his attentions……..the gun is only one of the tools with which he can attain comfort in those things, but it is the one which allows him the most strength, and which his enemies fear.

Glad That Anyone and everyone can be educated and trained in self defense and defending their home and families… My only wonder is why these same people do not turn to the NRA and other gun groups who offer the same training…. In the way this ORG. is advertizing they are almost promoting that the Other groups are Racist …. And statements like “from the Black perspective…” ARE Racist and ridiculous, because defense of self, family and home is universal, not race related or location related…. If they think these other gun groups are prejudice, I think they are listening… Read more »


As a American most likely of African decent, I find many organizations difficult to join because at some point their ethos makes me uncomfortable. The NAAGA moniker makes me uncomfortable because I do not want to limited and marginalized, but I support it at the same time. It would be naive to think that many groups exclude the American Negro. I will join and send my money in hopes that this group grows and has a presence in the legal landscape. I am American, I armed, I am responsible; “Come and take it”. I will not be limited due to… Read more »
