In a Kentucky Kroger store following a failed attempt to barge into a black church. A murderer then headed to a Kroger store, where he allegedly shot two people, both African-American.

Texas Tower shooting of 1966, also called University of Texas clock tower shooting, mass shooting in Austin, Texas, on August 1, 1966, in which Charles Whitman, a student and former- Marine, fired down from the clock tower on the campus of the University of Texas, killing 14 people and wounding 31 others (one of whom died years later from complications related to his wounds).

Charles Whitman began a murder spree by firing his scoped rifle from atop a 330-foot clock tower in Austin, Texas, killing people hundreds of yards away. When police .38s and buckshot proved impotent at that distance, private citizens on the ground returned fire on Whitman with hunting rifles and target rifles. Whitman was forced to take cover and stop shooting. Armed citizen Allen Crum then led Austin policemen Houston McCoy and Ramiro Martinez to the top of the tower. Crum fired the first shot of the encounter (which may have broken Whitman’s planned ambush of the officers), and McCoy and Martinez shot Whitman dead. Martinez later publicly credited the armed citizens with stopping the killing. They became heroes, not defendants.

Farewell message

Podcast cover
Read more
This is my farewell message to friends, family and coworkers in the 2 A movement.  In my twenty plus year of being in this space, I have never seen anyone actually retire.  They usually die, get a mention in the NRA Rifleman, and Ammoland and that's it.  Or they screw up in a media interview and get crucified by trolls and the community members that like that sort of thing.  I'm trying to go out on my own terms. The world has changed since I started.  A lot.  Some good stuff has happened.  And some bad.  I used to call myself the Bill Cosby of the Gun Rights Movement.  That isn't a good analogy now.  And there were a couple of other guys that I grew up looking up to that have since gone down in flames. Like my wife repeatedly say, don't compare yourself to anyone, just be you. I started with nothing.  I still have most of that left.   I started in 1986 wanted to be a firearms instructor for my community.  I wanted to become a high paid speaker or radio personality. I wanted to  leverage my creativity and entrepreneurism to become a successful business person.  I became the Black Man with a Gun (BMWAG) The local DC Maryland and Virginia community wasn't ready for an under 30  year old African American firearms trainer.  The government allowed me to moonlight and do this side activity but with a strict warning not to disclose my bona fides.  I was watched.  I was monitored.  I had to ask permission before I traveled.  When I appeared before the public they thought, how could I know anything?  How dare I talk about guns when there was the so called black on black crime, police shootings, and drug wars going on.  I got beat up a lot at ranges, gun shops and churches where I  tried to advertise.  But I became involved in the gun community/ gun rights when I failed to make money as a trainer/instructor in 1987.  Gun rights activism doesn't make money if you are honest.  Since then I have been involved in the gun debate, as it intersects firearms instruction and civil rights.  I created the Tenth Cavalry Gun Club in 1991 that grew from Washington, DC, Baltimore, NJ and Illinois.  The Law Enforcement Alliance of America, introduced me the show business of politics and I worked with to the NRA, GOA and SAF. The website Black Man with a Gun debuted in 1999.  I've been involved in US Supreme Court cases we have won for the 2nd Amendment even if my name isn't on it. I learned more about myself than anything doing this stuff I had a training business, where I provided instruction and certifications in first aid, armed security and tactics.  I failed in business but I pressed onward. I started before social media and looking back I could have been a boss with that thing but I didn't. I reached out to all the so called black leaders and announced my intentions in the gun world.  It was risky because historically, this same leaders are anti-gun.  But I went there.  I tried to buy a shooting range.  I got blasted by Rev Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and local pastors.  I created a podcast in 2007 and I was embraced by the people black people said I should beware of.  The demographic that loved the BMWAG were the same folks that are accused of racism, cronyism, and supremacy.  White males were calling me brother.  They were listening to my shows.  They were inviting me and my family to events across the country.  I shot historical firearms in Tennessee.  I ate at the homes of millionaires, in country clubs, and places in Washington DC I didn't know black people were allowed in.  I learned that our country likes being divisive.  I learned that racism exist mostly because people need it as an excuse.  I learned that organizations really don't want change.  I learned that people like mess, and drama.  I learned that I was a conservative.   What I enjoyed I loved meeting people like you. I loved shooting exotic and new firearms. I loved championing the cause of freedom.  I loved being the Black Man with a Gun.  I loved mixing faith and firearms.  I loved being the pastor of patriots, pistoleros and paladins.  I loved writing but podcasting was my jam.  I loved and hoped that one day I would make enough money to quit my day job.  That didn't happen by the way.  I learned that my faith has sustained me.  I learned that my unique position has saved lives. But it has had its bad side too.  I've spent too much money learning, and chasing influencers.  I filed bankruptcy along this journey. I'm ok now but I learned a lot by my mistakes.  My wisdom came at a price.  I almost lost my wife on this journey.  I almost got kicked out of two churches from being pro-gun.  I lost positions, promotions and opportunities at my old government job because of my pro-gun activities.  It came at a cost.    Memories 1.    Civil rights award from the NRA for bringing the Eddie Eagle program to Washington DC in a big way. 2.    St Gabriel Possenti award from the Gun Dean, John Synder at the Second Amendment Foundation 3.    Creating the tenth cavalry gun Club and getting the club to shoot at the NRA range when it was brand new 4.    Meeting Charlton Heston and getting Christmas cards from him for a few years 5.    Being the chaplain of the LEAA 6.    Being a part of the concealed carry reforms across the US 7.    Testifying in VA, TX, MI, WI and SC legislative houses 8.    Interviewing the Gunny, Lee Ermey, Wayne LaPierre, befriending a rabbi  like Dovid and connecting with my Jewish brethren 9.    Speaking in front of 20K in Albany NY 10.    Meeting Donald Trump and getting a selfie in NY 11.    Publishing two three books related to the my journey and the 2nd amendment 12.    Creating a website in 1999 and trademarking the name bmwag 13.    Being mentioned in a movie, pros and Cons. 14.    Getting a chance to audition for a pilot show on Spike TV 15.    Podcasting for 12 years, 630+ episodes, sharing American history, and introducing new generations to things they may have missed. 16.    Working with over 12 industry companies and getting sponsored by Crossbreed holsters and USCCA 17.    Interviewing over 100 historical people for the podcast   I created a IG post that alerted my friends that I was retiring.  It made me sad even though I am smiling in the picture.  How do you retire?  I'm making it up as I go.  I have never been here before but I know it is a nice thing to let folks know of your intentions.  Like anyone, I thought about all the things I did that didn't succeed.  I started dwelling on it and had to break out the ice cream.  If you feel bad, eat a little ice cream. I learned that from my dad.  Not too much or you will look like you are always sad.   Why am I leaving? When I got started in 2000 as the BMWAG, it was tongue in cheek.  It was my version of a shock jock.  I did it with all the intentions of being replaced by many untraditional firearms instructors, activist and clubs.  We have that.  I personally know of Spanish speakers, LGBT, African Americans, disabled vets and boat loads of women involved now.  I've been the go to guy media for law enforcement issues in the black community, religion and guns and veterans issues as it relates to guns.  Most of the time, after a tragedy. Not good times.  There have been almost a steady flow of tragedy to respond to.  If you know the media game, if you sound reasonable, truthful and not bombastic your contribution will not be used.  I think I might get the reward for the most media nobody but the editor as seen. I'm tired of that. It took me awhile to learn the game of hyperbole.  On a good day, I can crank it out like the best of them.  But it's not my style.  Over the years I have learned that I am not the loudest, nor the most controversial voice out there.  I started focusing on taking care of the second amendment first responders instead.  And I still will.  I care about you, your family and where you are going.   I learned you need a team to succeed.  You can be one dude on a mission as I have been.  You have to learn how to delegate.  You have to inspire folks to work for you for nothing until you can pay them.  I didn't manage that.  Since 2007, I have been producing digital content.  The Lord has allowed me to create, practice narration, speak and presenting online. I was intimately involved in the gun debate, US Constitutional issues and social causes.  And with that I am well known among the gray beards.  This fight is evergreen. I believe that this season of my life is ending and that I am to move on to the next.  I want to entertain. Teach and continue doing the needful on the sidelines.  My best work and most of my accomplishments are not online.  I have changed minds.  I have saved families. I have helped veterans.  I have been a brother to those in need.  I have helped mothers, grandmothers and children.   So how do you retire on your own terms? I figured my first step was in letting my friends know of my intentions so it doesn't catch them off guard. Decrease my expenses.  Live modestly.  Love unconditionally.  Continue to help my fellowman.  I am still pro-gun, pro-rights and pro-life - my life. If you want to find me, I will still be online, shooting recreationally, still be singing, playing the blues, riding my motorcycle, preaching the gospel, smiling and praising my God. I thank all of you that have been rolling with this brother since the beginning.  I thank you for listening, downloading and subscribing to the podcast.  I thank those that reached out when they saw my IG or Facebook and checked on a brother.  It wasn't a lot of you but I noticed who you were. Means I picked the right ones to call friend.   Special thanks and much appreciation to the Crossbreed Holsters Company and family.  We connected early and even after the passing of Mark, we stayed connected.  Carol has been a blessing. Tim Schmidt of USCCA has been instrumental in my success too.  He was a sponsor of my podcast and 2A work long before anyone knew what social media was.  He has moved on and grown his brand exponentially Barbara Baird of Women's Outdoor News has been like a confidant and big sister.  It is only because of her that I even got invited to blogger events and SHOT show parties.  If you saw or met me somewhere exclusive in the gun community it was because of a connection with her.   Shout outs to American Built Arms who sponsored my internet TV show for three months.  Blanchard Outdoors.   Shout out to my Sho Nuff supporters of my Patreon account that kept me solvent.  I made a pact with the wife not to spend any family money fighting for the RKBA and I've doing that successfully for a decade because of you. Thank you. Like Sheriff Bart said before me, "Work here is done. I'm needed elsewhere now. I'm needed wherever outlaws rule the West, wherever innocent women and children are afraid to walk the streets, wherever a man cannot live in simple dignity, wherever a people cry out for justice." Shalom baby. Rev. Kenn Blanchard

2 A Rally

Podcast cover

on November 2, 2019, about a hundred gun rights activist from different organizations, channels and locations came together in unity for the US Constitution. The one point they all agreed on was the importance of the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights.

It was a major feat because it was the herding of strong personalities. I was privileged to be in the number chosen to speak that day to a crowd about ten times that number on the grounds of the US Capitol's west lawn.

There were 26 or so speakers that spoke but even more that didn't but were equally important in our constant struggle to keep America free. Craig Deluz is an awesome speaker. I got a chance to catch him before he got started here. Also was the meeting of Dave Smith, a competitive shooter with the Parkinsons' Disease that learned he can manage this struggle by continuing to shoot.

I've been involved in gun rights activism since 1991 and continue to be inspired by great people like these.

Race Wars Stories

Podcast cover

It's like a pink elephant in the room.  Folks don’t want to talk about it but did you know that we have had race riots since 1898 in this country?  The fear and mention of race wars still comes up in conversations.  And it comes up with firearms ownership.  Here's some history and background for you so you can be better armed to talk about it and our rights. Racism sucks.

Continuing a conversation with pro shooter and friend, Todd Jarrett, as he talks about STI Guns and more on his life from a previous conversation.  This is part 2of 4.

Which One Will Win?

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 618

“Inside of me there are two dogs. One is mean and evil and the other is good and they fight each other all the time. When asked which one wins I answer, the one I feed the most.”

People in the gun community are taking sides.  One of the largest groups is the one of the undecided.  Those that don't like to fight ALL the damn time like some of us do.

Some think this is normal.  that is happens cyclically.

Others think this is the beginning of the Apocalypse.

And there are some that are using it to show they were right, and that we need to change.

Which one will win?

Rob Morse wrote some great pieces I snagged from Ammoland.com that I want to share.

I have an interview with the President of the National African American Gun Association, Phillip Smith.

And going to share with you a project I have of my own.  Gun Rights Alliance App.

What I Learned From John Wick 3

Podcast cover
Read more

Here’s three points I got from the John Wick 3 movie :

1.            One of things I pulled out of this action packed movie is that relationships matter. 

2.            Blind loyalty hurts. 

3.            learn how to operate the firearm you run backwards and forwards, be proficient in clearing malfunctions, how to fix it, everything 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSXc5z9F7Do

I have a Conversation with the best writer on the Black Man With A Gun blog, Dave B. Cole on hunting, being a writer for the Black Man With A Gun and more

Gun Rights Alliance - join our list 

https://forms.aweber.com/form/54/1271685154.htm

Today, I am looking forward at what I can do for the gun rights movement as a legacy. I want to be remembered for more than just being the OGaka the Black Man with A Gun™.  Here’s what I plan.  I am working with a app developer to create a mobile app that can be a platform directory for organizations like the GOA, USCCA, SAF, NAAGA, 2AO, and others to connect with us.  IT will also have a directory and links to pages from content creators that are really the media for our side.  The bloggers, podcasters, and YouTubers will have their own apps within this app. I am trying to get cutting age tech to protect us from the Bergs that don’t like us. (Bloom and Zucker.) 

It’s been a great life so far.  Being involved in the gun rights movement has improved me.  It has taught me to be a better citizen.  It has made me appreciate freedom, history and the sacrifices of others. 

Communication is the magic sauce.  Going to try it despite our mistrust of each other.  Going to make it happen despite the need for goo gobs of money.  The power has always been in the people. We are what makes this thing called freedom work.

I think I can do this. I’ve worked with just about everyone.  I’ve watched folks come and go.  Like a sentinel, I have held my post.  I have encouraged and discouraged posers as best I could.   I have been an activist in the gun rights community since 1991. Before that I started as a firearms trainer for my government agency.  From that I launched a side business to teach tactics and defense to civilians and security officers.  I was part of the start of the concealed carry movement.  I traveled with the NRA and the Law Enforcement Alliance of America to testify in a handful of states to change their racist policies and laws. 

Thus began my journey as the Black Man with A Gun™. I started a national gun club in 1991 to foster the growth of African Americans in the shooting sports.  I published a book in 1999.  I created a website in 2000. I’ve worked behind the scenes to select, qualify and protect people of color that became involved in Supreme Court cases.

I’ve worked with the NRA.  I even tried to get a job there.  I’m a life member. I only turned it down because the salary was too low and not close to what they were paying the incumbent. I begged to be a functioning member on the GOA staff and after –way too much back and forth – got a position as the volunteer Urban Affairs guy.  I didn’t do a thing with that.  I resigned.  Too early I guess. I’ve been a voting member on the CCRKBA and done the perfunctory “minority speaker slot” the GRPC but never made the masthead.  I’ve worked with just about all the groups out there.  My hats off to all the brothers and sisters now working with “x” organization.

This is my attempt to sew all the pieces together.  If you will support it, join the email list today so I can build a team to make this happen. 

We are the Gun Rights Alliance.
