‘Where Is the NRA?’ Gun Rights Group Slammed for Silence on Amir Locke

Attorney Ben Crump slammed the National Rifle Association (NRA): “Where [are] the Second Amendment supporters for Black people who have a right to bear arms?” Crump said at a news conference in New York City alongside Locke’s mother. “Where is the NRA? They should be outraged.”

“As seen in the body-worn camera video released by Minneapolis Police, Mr. Locke appears to be sleeping on the couch during the execution of a no-knock warrant,” said the group’s chairman, Bryan Strawser. “He is awoken with a confusing array of commands coming from multiple officers who are pointing lights and firearms at him.”

Rob Doar, the group’s senior vice president of government affairs, added, “Mr. Locke did what many of us might do in the same confusing circumstances, he reached for a legal means of self-defense while he sought to understand what was happening.”
