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....

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...
