Hijabs and Holsters: Muslim Women Are Exercising The Second Amendment

Published

on

Myisha McGahee-Wooten is a Muslim woman that is packing heat.

Along with her traditional Islamic garb, she carries a Glock 19.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that she decided to start carrying after being robbed at gunpoint back in 2015. For her, carrying a firearm makes her feel safer.

Aliya Khabir, a communications consultant who is another Muslim that is licensed to carry, praised McGahee-Wooten’s ability to handle firearms:

She’s responsible in the way that she does it.

Khabir also complimented the Muslim gun activist for her knowledge about gun laws, “She gives out information about the law in each state and what you should know about a firearm prior to purchasing one.”

The Muslim Second Amendment activist has never needed to use her weapon for self-defense purposes. But if faced with a situation where her life is in danger, she is ready to defend herself.

McGahee-Wooten has never had to fire her weapon in self-defense. But she’s ready should the situation arise.

I’m standing up against somebody hurting me or somebody else. I’m standing up against somebody taking my life. I’m being brave and protecting myself.

From a national perspective, Pennsylvania gun laws are not the best. It is currently ranked in 32nd place for most gun-friendly states according to Guns & Ammo magazine. Pennsylvania is notorious for its weak preemption laws which allow cities like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia to enact anti-gun ordinances that fly in the face of the state’s constitution.

However, Pennsylvania-based groups like Muslimah Concealed Carry and Black Guns Matter have emerged in response to the state’s increasingly anti-gun behavior. Minorities are starting to realize that gun control does not make their communities safer.

GOA Endorses Based Pro-Second Amendment Black Man for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor

Published

on

On August 4, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced that it endorsed Mark Robinson for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.

Tim Macy, chairman of Gun Owners of America, declared, “We all remember the impassioned speech given by Mr. Robinson at the Greensboro City Council meeting. His ‘I’m the majority’ speech reverberated across the country, and launched Mr. Robinson down a path of advocating for and defending the Second Amendment on a national scale.”

Macy added, “Mark Robinson, who is a GOA life member, has promised to give ‘not one inch on the Second Amendment,’ and to defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. GOA is glad to be able to support him in taking this position to the North Carolina State Government.”

Robinson made a name for himself by giving a powerful speech against the Greensboro City Council’s attempt to cancel a gun show in 2018 following the Parkland shooting, which sparked a massive wave of gun control across the nation.
