NYT Readers Get Upset When a Black Woman Gets a Gun

Antonia Okafor is a black graduate student who carries a gun for self-defense and some of the New York Times readership is extremely bothered by it.

On July 24 Okafor wrote a NYT opinion piece, in which she explained why she owns a gun, why she carries it, and why she thinks campus carry is the most logical way to empower women to protect themselves from predators in the university setting.

    you don’t see too many M1891 Mosin-Nagant’s any more. good gun.

    • Maggat

      Good eye.

    • UCSPanther

      I more lean towards the Mauser Kar98k and M1917 Enfield myself.

  • Killer Marmot

    Gun control in the U.S. had its origins in trying to keep guns out of the hands of blacks, so it’s good to see Times readers respecting tradition.

    Prior to the National Firearms Act of 1934, most people believed that the Federal Government had no powers to regulate firearms.

      According to your constitution it does not have such powers, but it did it anyway like in so many other areas and got away with it. It is the same here with the division of power between the federal and provincial governments with more encroachments by the feds on provincial jurisdiction than I can think of. That division is yet very clear in our own constitution.

    I’d hazard a guess that most of those predators on University Campus’ aren’t members of the Young Republicans and don’t vote Trump which means? They’re a bunch of leftist perverts who despite their continual bleating like sheep don’t really want women empowered at all because that’d cut into their rapefest.

  • There is something about independent black people who regard themselves merely as citizens that the left just does not like.

  • bargogx1

    Well, of course they’re upset. She’s messing with the narrative. Everyone knows that all gun owners are white male racists.

  • DMB

    Liberals don’t mind when black men get guns (illegally). When they use it (usually to commit crimes) they blame guns not the criminals using it but when it is white men who use guns legally or legally they blame white men than call for more gun control.

      Meanwhile this past weekend we had more black on black murder. BLM could not be reached for comment.
