Black Americans across the country are seriously considering risking their lives by staging an open carry rally outside of the White House. While still in the early planning stages, the group says they would hold the gathering in order to get president Trump to pass gun control legislation.
“It worked when the Black Panthers open carried in California,” gun control advocate Terrell Jenkins stated. “In fact, Ronald Reagan passed the Mulford Act banning the public carrying of loaded guns while he was governor in that state.”
Most political scholars believe that president Trump would enforce strict gun laws if the black community holds an open carry rally anywhere near the White House. Meanwhile, the NRA has begun calling for background checks and waiting periods for all Americans who are trying to purchase a firearm.
“It just kind of clicked for us all of a sudden,” NRA President Carolyn Meadows stated. “We get it now.”
