What could possibly go wrong? ‘Black Guns Matter’ campaigner claims he will cut violence in inner cities like Chicago by arming residents with more LEGAL firearms

A pro-gun campaigner is claiming he can cut inner-city violence in cities like Chicago – by giving people greater access to legal firearms and knowledge.

Maj Toure is the founder of Black Guns Matter, a pro-gun organisation that aims to educate urban populations about their Second Amendment rights.

He believes that years of prejudice have convinced people living in cities to associate guns with crime rather than defending themselves, their communities and their rights.

Maj, who was raised in north Philadelphia, said: ‘Growing up, people always told me that firearms were bad, and that if you have a firearm you either have to be the bad guy or you are law enforcement.
