Gun Purchases By African Americans Are Up After Trump Election
Gun shops and gun clubs across the nation are accounting for a rise in the purchase of firearms by African American customers since the ascendance of Donald Trump into the office of Presidency. Firing ranges, such as Stoddard’s Range and Guns in Atlanta, vouch for having witnessed a boost in activity since the November elections and such organizations as the National African American Gun Association claim to have doubled in membership over that time.
“I’d be lying to you if I said Donald Trump hasn’t affected our numbers,” said NAAGA national president Philip Smith, about the growing trend. “They have jumped off the roof.” NAAGA touts more than 18,000 members in 24 chapters across the country. Up to 9,000 of those members have signed on with the association since November 8, according to Smith. A CNN report into the numbers found that several gun retailers confirm the upswing, with owners of shops from Orlando to Ohio having personally attested to the phenomenon.
Such a surge in gun ownership hasn’t been seen since 2008, when Barack Obama became president and gun sales began to accumulate in record numbers. While many of the buyers then feared that the President would come into office and implement strict gun regulations, there were also customers from fringe groups who bought into race-based conspiracies about a Black President. It is with the multitude of members of those fringe groups now emboldened by the divisive rhetoric which has carried Trump to office, by which the Black community has responded by arming itself.
“I think the main thing that has really changed is that two years ago, fringe groups were just that: fringe groups,” he says. “But now those fringe groups are kind of like, ‘It’s cool to be racist,’ and they’ve taken that and we — our community sees that, and it scares us. You know what, let me get a gun just in case something happens, just to make sure.”
