Black Guns Matter: RISE OF THE RADICALS

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj A PRO-GUN campaigner says he can cut inner-city violence in cities like Chicago - by giving them greater access to legal firearms and knowledge. Maj Toure is the founder of Black Guns Matter, a pro-gun organisation that aims to educate urban populations about their Second Amendment rights. He believes that years of prejudice have convinced urban populations to associate guns with crime rather than defending themselves, their communities and their rights. Maj has been taking his message across the United States for the past year, visiting areas such as Atlanta, Baltimore and Detroit.

Inside The Ku Klux Klan: KKK Explain Their Plan For Expansion

Inside The Ku Klux Klan: KKK Explain Their Plan For Expansion SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj A GROUP of Ku Klux Klan members says it is planning military style combat training for the FIRST time in KKK history - exactly 60 years after the birth of the African-American Civil Rights Movement. Klan bosses say an influx of military troops - existing members and new KKK recruits - will return to the US from overseas campaigns in a matter of weeks and plan to train the Loyal White Knights (LWK) faction, which has Klan members made up of men, women and children across at least three states. LWK leaders say they are preparing for a race war they believe will break out soon with the collapse of modern society, and will learn armed combat, hand-to-hand combat and survival skills. The controversial organisation is also targeting kids as part of a modern recruitment drive. Unlike members of the 20th century, today's KKK use social media and the internet alongside traditional methods like nighttime leaflet drops in local neighbourhoods to attract new members, including 13-17 year olds. These exclusive images show a recent KKK rally held at a secret location in a forest near Parkersburg, West Virginia. KKK expert Brian Levin says the main danger from the modern KKK doesn't come from the group forming an army, but from individual splinter groups with desperate new leaders trying to make a name for themselves. He said they can draw inspiration from extremist acts like a recent massacre in a Jewish Community Center in Kansas. Frazer Glenn Miller Jr., a former Klan faction leader, was arrested and charged in April with killing three people in the shootings, a 14-year-old boy with his grandfather and a woman.
