People of color use guns everyday and kill people all the time.

Regulations and the NRA wont stop that.

Cant find actual numbers for that, although I am pretty sure its not high.


I found this interesting though.

This came from a message board so the source is not great but I shared anyways:

 why do you say you are pretty sure it isnt high?  Im curious no snark :-)  Do black Americans not like guns or believe that the NRA is run by white supremists, who are out to hurt them?

I have no statistics to prove this, just based off the demographics I have noticed.

Many black voters select a democratic candidate for President...NRA is associated and has ties to the GOP...Related? Maybe..

Like I said no stats here just personal feeling on this.
