Here is the pull quote IMO:
“While Ohio may be an open carry state, and it may be legal, this doesn’t mean that we need to standby and say nothing. Lest we forget, slavery and apartheid were legal as was/is state sanctioned violence. We will not stay silent. These laws are unjust and threaten our psychological and physical safety.”
Nice of BRAVE group to bring up people who were not allowed to defend themselves with firearms.
Yes, the irony is strong with this group.
In addition, their comparisons are invalid and backwards. Slavery and apartheid were one group of people physically harmed or physically restricted by another group of people. If a gun carrier is not using
that gun illegally then he/she/it is not harming anyone physically or restricting anyone's actions. (unless by "action" you mean rape robbery or murder) Law abiding gun owners are merely carrying the means to stop threats to their physical safety.
As far as guns threatening the groups psychological safety, that is in the eye of the beholder, as long as the gun carrier isn't doing anything threatening or menacing with the gun. (again, those are laws already on the books) I believe Col. Cooper called it "Hoblophobia", an abnormal
fear of firearms.
