NRA: You Can No Longer Stay Silent

December 10, 2018

NAACP, the nation’s foremost civil rights organization released the following statement to the National Rifle Association (NRA):

“The senseless killing of Emantic J. Bradford and the silence from the NRA has confirmed that the 2nd amendment does not apply to legally licensed Black gun owners. Instead of standing by their principles, the NRA continues to demonize and alienate people of color who are gunned downed and blamed for exercising their right to own and brandish firearms. This narrative is just as old and tired as this organization and its time for them to stop this hypocrisy and finally come to terms with its racist rhetoric. The target on backs of Black and brown lives is getting larger and unlike the NRA, we will do all we can to stop this.”
