After Trump Victory, Minorities Flock to Gun Stores
Don't bother reading this leftist, race-baiting drivel. I'll pull out the interesting parts of the article so you don't give the fake news media any traffic.
According to NBC News, minorities are heading to the gun stores to arm up following the victory of Donald Trump in the presidential election.
After Donald Trump's win, Yolanda Scott is upgrading the crowbar she keeps in her purse to a small-caliber pistol.
Scott, an African-American, is one of many minorities who have been flocking to gun stores to protect themselves, afraid Trump's victory will incite more hate crimes.
"You feel that racists now feel like they can attack us just because the president is doing it," Earl Curtis, the owner of Blue Ridge Arsenal in Chantilly, Virginia, told NBC News.
Gun store owners told NBC News that since November 8 they're seeing up to four times as many black and minority customers — and black gun groups are reporting double the normal number of attendees at their meetings since the election.
The Second Amendment is for everyone and I read this as good news although NBC puts a sinister spin on it. After all, the more people who buy guns, the more people have a vested interest in protecting their right to keep and bear arms -- and the media doesn't like that. Instead of focusing on how important it is for every American to be able to protect themselves, NBC turns this into a discussion of a new racist administration that has unleashed a racist mob onto the streets to target minorities.
And Donald J. Trump's surprise victory in November has done nothing to abate the racial violence — it even seems to have encouraged more open displays of hatred. More than 700 instances have already been reported to the Southern Poverty Law Center [SPLC] just since November 8, and LGBT hotlines are seeing an "all-time peak" in calls from people reporting harassment.
The SPLC is actually a lefty hate group. Why does NBC reference the group as if it were a neutral authority?
