Feel-Good Friday: Black Gun Store Owners Commit to Training Their Community in Firearms Safety and 2A Rights

Other than Colion Noir, who used to do videos for the NRA and now continues his gun safety and Second Amendment advocacy through his website and YouTube channel, and Maj Toure’s organization Black Guns Matter, the Left would like to paint the narrative that “Melanated” people (as Maj refers to us), have no interest in gun rights and learning how to defend ourselves. I appreciate what these young men have done to defy that narrative and change the script.


Black gun enthusiasts also have a beautiful example in the first Black female Lt. Governor of Virginia, Winsome Sears. Throughout her campaign, she defended Second Amendment rights, and in one campaign posting, she posed proudly with her AR-15.

And in 2015, the National African Americans Gun Rights Association was founded to educate Black people on firearm use for home protection, competitive shooting, and just pure fun!

The Feel-Bad this week: Dementia Joe is determined to try and take away our guns. Listening to him blather on about cannons, you know whoever is pulling the strings is wanting a win in that column.

The Feel-Good Friday Good News: More Americans, and especially Black Americans are not only arming themselves, but encouraging and training their communities in gun use and safety, so they can fully invest themselves into the 2A community.

So, in honor of Black History Month, today’s Feel-Good Friday post is about a Black couple who cared more about the community than their discomfort with being associated with “gun culture.” Not only did they begin training their community on gun safety and firearms use, but they opened up their own gun store called Prime Protection STL. According to KSDK News in St. Louis, co-owners Armon Reed-Wynne and Bridgette Reed-Wynne have trained over 8,000 people in gun safety and how to best protect themselves.

Bravo them!

“That’s what we are here for because there’s too many good people lost to the hands of criminals,” Prime Protection STL co-owner Armon Reed-Wynne said.

I know that’s right.



Armon and Bridgette Reed-Wynne started in 2016 doing tactical training workshops in the basement of Bridgette’s mother home. They opened their storefront in 2021, and business has exploded so much that in March they will be moving into a larger space.

Part of the Reed-Wynnes goal is to bridge the gap between the Black community and the gun community, so that the phony narrative pushed by the gun-grabbing Left and control advocates has no traction. Armon Reed-Wynne is right: too many people in the community are lost because instead of being able to arm themselves, they became victims of the criminals who will always be strapped, no matter what laws are on the books.

“It’s so important to make sure people have the ability to be comfortable when doing this. And to know they aren’t a criminal for exercising their 2nd amendment rights,” Armon Reed Wynne said.

“For us to be able to provide that to them makes us sleep well at night,” Bridgette said.
