TN: The impact of permitless carry on the black community

Some members of Nashville's black community are worried about the impact permitless carry law will have when it goes into effect on Thursday.

According to the Washington Post, black Americans are shot and killed by police at a much higher rate than white Americans. The Middle Tennessee Black Gun Club told News 4 they have been working to ease some of those concerns.

The permitless carry law allows anyone 21 years old and older who can legally own a firearm to carry a concealed firearm without a permit.

"Makes me wonder if it's going to increase their heightened fear when they are pulling over black drivers assuming because it is okay to have a gun that automatically we have a firearm on us," McClean said.

The fact is that the police assume every vehicle they stop may well have a gun in it until they determine otherwise. They have to assume that for their own safety.

Learning the proper behavior protocols during a traffic stop is the only way to guard against misunderstandings resulting in injury/death.

The cops know that the people who would shoot them are already carrying firearms. This law changes nothing in that regard. Follow instructions, keep your hands in sight and don't make any sudden moves, and you'll be alright.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No one can read our Constitution without concluding that the people who wrote it wanted their government severely limited; the words "no" and "not" employed in restraint of government power occur 24 times in the first seven articles of the Constitution and 22 more times in the Bill of Rights.
