Self Defense or Murder? A Breakdown of the Kenosha Shootings

Will Porter returns for the final episode of Foreign Policy Focus to discuss the shootings and civil unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. First, a Kenosha police officer shot Jacob Blake in the back seven times while attempting an arrest, leaving him paralyzed. The shooting ignited protests at the Kenosha courthouse that led to riots in other areas of the city. On the third night of unrest, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse shot three people during a confrontation, killing two. He has since been arrested, while both shootings continue to fuel intense debate and division. Links YouTube – Conflicts of...

Support Black Guns Matter

I sense a change in the gun debate.  People are realizing they have a right to protect themselves.  Maj Toure and Black Guns Matter are actively promoting and teaching people how to use guns and protect their right to self defense and he is doing it in communities that have traditionally been the target of gun control laws that deny people that right.  The message is being heard. Chicago State Rep. La Shawn Ford has supported federal gun laws in the past but now he is urging people to to arm themselves. “I think about it all the time,” Ford said of the shootings that plague his community....

An Armed Pregnant Woman Defended Herself, Now She Faces 24 Years in Jail

Last December, Krissy Noble (then going by her maiden name Tran) shot and killed a man who broke into her apartment and attacked her. She was 11 weeks pregnant at the time. As ABC News described the incident: [When her attacker was] inside, the man tackled her and began trying to cover her mouth with his hand, which she thought smelled of chemicals, the report states.

Civil Rights and the Right to Self-Defense Go Hand-in-Hand

Few civil rights leaders confronted Jim Crow more effectively before the rise of Martin Luther King Jr. than T.R.M. Howard (1908-1976). His commanding presence and impressive achievements made him hard to ignore. A respected surgeon, Howard was one of the wealthiest African Americans in Mississippi and headed a successful mass movement for equality under the law. From the beginning, armed self-defense was as an essential component of the struggle. Guns were always a key feature of Howard’s life ever since his impoverished childhood in rural Kentucky. Every Sunday his mother gave him a...

Does the Second Amendment Even Exist?

Gun control was going to be a campaign issue even before the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting back on June 12. Donald Trump was endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA) after he spoke at the group’s convention in May and remarked that “the Second Amendment is under threat like never before” and that “crooked Hillary Clinton is the most anti-gun, anti–Second Amendment candidate ever to run for office.” (This is a change from Trump’s previous position, as articulated in his book The America We Deserve [2000] — support for the “assault weapons” ban then in force and in favor of a...
