Maj Toure is the Founder of Black Guns Matter (BGM), which is a group to help urban communities learn their gun rights and responsibilities.
Each BGM event includes demonstrations and discussions with experts including certified firearms instructors, lawyers, and Second Amendment activists. Throughout the nationwide BGM class, Toure, a Philly Hip Hop artist turned activist/Solutionary, sounds the alarm on politicians who espouse that urbanites should trust government to keep them safe, while, simultaneously, politicians have failed to do just that.
Maj has developed a “Solutionary” AR Platform Rifle.
“There is no white gun culture or black gun culture, there is an informed gun culture and an ignorant one.” – Maj Toure
