As we bring in the year 2019, we've reflected on how many cities we've done (over 50) and how much more work there is to do. Over the last few years we have hit our marks, met and helped TONS of awesome people, but the need for more of a political understanding is in order. So, we have decided to do 20 more cities for 2019. We will raise our goal to 200,000 and do five different events per quarter for 2019. Thank you ALL for continuing on this journey, lets reach even new heights.

"Black Guns Matter is one of the most important gun rights movements of the 21st century. Through it, Maj Toure is highlighting the urban community's need to embrace the Second Amendment and is sounding the alarm about politicians who have spent decades teaching blacks to trust the government to keep them safe. Toure's point is clear--The government has failed to keep you safe, as it has failed to keep Americans of all races safe. Your safety is in your own hands via the right to keep and bear arms," said AWR Hawkins, PhD, Breitbart News

The #BlackGunsMatterTour is headed to Atlanta, GA, Compton, & Oakland in the next few weeks--we have completed trainings in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Chicago thanks to the support of #ThePeople.

Also this month Cam Edwards wrote a story about our work which is featured in America's First Freedom-- https://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2016/10/28/why-america-needs-more-maj/

Check it out and continue to spread the word!!

Thanks to you, we have already launched the tour in Baltimore. Please continue to share, tweet, and most importantly, be a Solutionary.

This is an OUTSTANDING concept, something I have advocated as necessary for a long time now. I grew up in rural Arizona, and firearms instruction was part of the school curriculum back then in the 1960s and 1970s. God Bless You.

This is a creative way forward when it is obvious that past "theories" on how to end urban gun violence just don't work. Thank you for taking this courageous path to ending urban gun violence - the only question is why has it taken so long for someone to put forward education and training in a convincing and attractive manner? Thank you, again for your courage.

Maj Toure is an excelent public speaker, and has a more rounded approuch focused not just on 2nd amendment rights, but on basic civil liberties for ALL people. I find this refreshing and very inspirational, when compared to the normal national gun control debates. I think his argument to advocate a inalianable human/personal right to defend yourself (regardless of race or where you happen to live), is more compelling in this century, than the typical arguement on the founding fathers "right to bare arms" as a guard against an oppressive government... And to have a population ready and capable to be a militia/army. You are doing amazing work, please keep it up!

As a minority male who for years thought that firearms were only for "country bumpkins" or seedy underworld individuals, it is wonderful to see a group of individuals change this perception. For way too long, people have been telling me/us what to think and feel and that they will take care of us. After going out with some coworkers and actually learning about firearms and firearm safety, I believe that organizations like this are extremely valuable.
