Black people are not fans of gun safety, as the high rate of shooting deaths in their community will a test. Black youth routinely accidentally misfire their weapons, discharging them in the direction of people and sometimes themselves.
The need for tighter gun control is routinely discussed in conjunction with the high fatality rate among Black people with weapons, who seem incapable of using them for defense, but primarily offensive means.
Gun safety starts at home and should start in the schools, but as one former DEA agent can relate, it doesn’t always work out that way.
Lee Paige was giving a lesson on gun safety to Florida students, all Black people, and decided to allow students a glimpse of Stuff Black People Don’t Like: Gun Safety.
In the video, listen for Lee to tell the audience, while waving a gun:
“I’m the only one professional enough to handle this gun.”
After which, he promptly places it back in its holster and shoots himself in the foot.
