Any discussions of gun violence and the regulations needed to curb it are incomplete unless they include an analysis of how racism plays a role.

Absolutely. And along with other oppressed communities, the same can be said of every successful movement that’s taken shape in this nation. United we stand, divided we fall.

Excellent article! The Parkland kids are doing this the right way. They can help BLM/BLM can help them! This movement gives me the first glimmer of hope in years.

That would look great on signs and t-shirts! Very good!

You all have my support. But let’s not forget the other victims of gun violence: wildlife, pets, “livestock” animals. Sport hunting, trophy hunting, big game hunting so far is legalized serial killing. Keep in mind the murder of Cecil. Consider the link between hunting and the firearms industry. Go online: www.wildwatch.org and www.abolishsporthunting.org

The places where most people of color are shot are the places with the highest number of laws activists want, actually in place. This shows a fundamental problem with the idea the laws work.
