In an emotional speech where he rolled out his executive actions on gun ownership in the United States, President Barack Obama made a clear statement that neither he nor any of his cabinet offices are in the business of confiscating legal firearms owned by American citizens. His tone was clear and emphatic when he discussed the 2nd amendment as a fundamental right. However, conservative writers here in the digital realm are already stoking more fear upon a subject based upon fear.

Writing at Breitbart.com, Awr Hawkins gives readers the idea that those collecting Social Security will have their guns confiscated. This is simply not true and even hawkins has to explain deeper into the column that the Social Security Administration will be brought on board to report to NICS any information regarding mental health and competence of persons declared disabled and unable to manage their payments based upon a mental health diagnosis. Even Congress is on board to assure that the mentally ill do not gain access to firearms and thereby reducing both the potential for mass shootings and the number of gun suicides in America.

There has been quite a bit of consternation regarding the constitutionality of these executive orders from the Right. Rick Ungar at Forbes magazine has an excellent take on and a breakdown of the twenty-three line items in these orders. Do take the time to read this.

A MODEST PROPOSAL: INSPIRED BY WENDELL PIERCE AND RICK ECTOR I CALL FOR A DOUBLING OF NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION MEMBER ROLLS WITH 5 MILLION NEW BLACK AND LATINO MEMBERS

It’s gut check time on guns. Those of you have have read my posts in the past know that I am a gun control advocate. I believe fully that the 2nd Amendment meant that those who kept and bore arms should be those in a “well regulated militia.” However, in the post Civil War Reconstruction era continuing into the pre World War I era this changed significantly. Gun proliferation has continued growing with every fear driven crisis until today when there were a whopping 270 million guns in America as of 2007 according to The Economist. The Washington Post estimates that that number could be as high as 320 million now after the post November 2008 gun buying craze due to the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama.

I have been met with a solution to all of this gun craziness. Middle class blacks and Latinos make up a broad and diverse demographic in the United States. Many of these people are legal gun owners. Some are even members of law enforcement organizations be they local state or federal. But what is missing is that few are members of America’s largest gun rights organization–The National Rifle Association. Wendell Pierce, an actor noted for his role on the hit television series The Wire, has offered a solution to calls for gun control falling on deaf ears– more black men need to apply for concealed carry permits and join the NRA. Pierce tweeted, “If every Black male 18-35 applied for a conceal& carry permit, and then joined NRA in one day; there would be gun control laws in a second.” And I agree. Also if one followed the lead of Rick Ector, a black gun owner and NRA member who has attended two conventions and found the number of black attendees nearly statistical zero, with calls for more inclusive NRA activities and a program that would reach out to black and Latino youth with gun safety programs NRA membership would swell.

So here is my pitch. I’ve gotten permission from Cavalor to have one of our Living assistants to set up a Gofundme page that will help to get black and Latino gun owners signed up with one, two or five year NRA memberships in 2016. I don’t know how difficult this will be because the costs are high; 5 million 2 year memberships would cost $300 million. But any inroads made into this organization to make it more inclusive will likely change their rhetoric and make it less of a good old boys club and allow the silent voices of gun owners of color to be heard.

Pax Terra!
