Book Description

When many in America hear the phrase “black man with a gun”, they immediately think negatively. Is that an irrational fear or do the facts bear it out? If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a conservative black man in America, then this is the book for you. Kenn Blanchard takes you behind the scenes to places and perspectives you could never go unchaperoned. He has been involved in the gun rights fight since 1991. He breaks through the racial divide by destroying negative stereotypes about the black community and how they view guns and how they view traditionally white institutions like the NRA. The good reverend answers all these questions and more. You can’t put Kenn Blanchard in a box; there’s just too much of him. He’s a preacher, a motorcycle rider, a Marine veteran, a loving husband and father, and a retired CIA officer. Hear his plea as he reaches out to his brothers and sisters in the African-American community in his best attempt at bringing them into the armed American fold. Black Man with a Gun Reloaded is not color blind. Rather, it takes the bull by the horns and rips its head clean off!

5.0 out of 5 stars From the Author March 25, 2014
There is a comment on here where the guy dislikes the Law Enforcement Alliance of America, that I was a part of back in the day and tries to discredit me on some level, but he is so wrong on so many fronts, feel free to disregard what he could never know. I guess when you can't be as big, belittle...

This book, is a snippet of my life, lessons learned and things accomplished. I wrote it to show my shortcomings, and growth. I hope you laugh from my observations and get the chance to see me, and the gun community a little more clearer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black-Man speaks to minorities June 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Few outside the gun-using community understand the racist roots of gun-control. I suspect that this insight is lost on the minority community just as it is on the majority. Still more importantly, Blanchard has insight into how the white-majority has "sold" a racist agenda to blacks in the sheep's clothing of a PC-class distinction.
It's all very well for a black wo[man] in a government uniform to carry a gun while carrying-water on the elite's agenda. Remove the government uniform and the gun becomes an object of horror! How did the elites manage to sell this nonsense to a community sensitive (with more than enough justification) to racism-in-any-disguise? The explanation - entirely opaque to anyone not immersed in an unfamiliar culture - is brought to light here.
I am convinced that the era of racism is well-on-it's-way to fading into oblivion in America. The era of the KKK is behind us. Nevertheless, I am not so foolish as to imagine that the seeds will forever remain dormant in the human soul. Some sort of -ism will forever be a part of human nature to be exploited by the unscrupulous. Whom will become the next target I presume not to predict. Immigrants or muslims represent candidate targets as plausible as blacks. Nor would I confine the plausible next targets to this or any other race/religion/class.
Black-Man is an object lesson in the distinction between citizen and slave. That distinction did not end with the Emancipation Proclamation nor with the Reconstruction Amendments nor any of the Civil Rights Acts to follow. Equality before the law rests on sand unless-and-until the means to an effective claim to equality is held by men and women alike in the street and in their homes.

3.0 out of 5 stars good information April 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author brings a new perspective to the gun control discussion from the viewpoint of the gun owner "of color". As he so able notes, gun folks come from every sort of person in the country; they're not just "old white guys with long guns". I would have liked to have gotten more details into the racist roots of gun control. He makes good points about how all people, and African Americans in particular, need to educate themselves about the true state of affairs in the ongoing gun control debate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reloaded May 29, 2014
By Kwah
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mr. Blanchard’s story is worth the read! The book is educational, entertaining, and inspiring. History (his and the U.S.) is given a no nonsense examination free from “group think” and political correctness. After reading, you feel you know what he believes, where he is heading, and you want to join him in his endeavors. Thank you Mr. Blanchard

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff! April 2, 2014
By Fynesse
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent book for the new or seasoned shooter. Rev Kenn spells it all out for you and pulls no punches. All while giving you a little history lesson just in case you didn't know. Well now you do. Black Man with a Gun Reloaded, helps dispell the propoganda, the media hype blitz and just plain bull cocky with his vast experience working with the military (Ooorah!!) to the federal gubment, he shares his knowledge in firearms, laws, and just plain down home common sense. And ladies there's some stuff in there for us too, so everyone is included. Pick up your copy today, just in time for Easter.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Much I Did Not Know September 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book along with Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms by Nicholas Johnson were really eye opening. I am a BMWAG and a lawyer and there was much that I did not know that I learned reading these books. I did not know the history of gun control laws and Jim Crow. I never heard of the Deacons For Defense. I learned that one freedom march from Memphis to Jackson Mississippi that I was on the Deacons were present. Yet no one talked about them.

In all the discussions and debates about non-violence I was unaware of the agreement that many civil rights leaders shared concerning self-defense. So much knowledge that I was surprised that I did not know.

Kenn Blanchard’s book is more personal but I highly recommend both books.

I found Kenn's podcast several years back and enjoy hearing his perspective not only on the firearms industry but life in general. His book is a good read!
