Thanks For Visiting.

The Black Man With A Gun Show, formerly known as the Urban Shooter Podcast was created to fulfill a need to stay in contact with the gun community Kenn Blanchard has met as a rights activist along his journey since 1991.  You’ll hear defensive gun use, firearms training tips for the new shooter and reminders for the advanced.  We are protecting the rights of gun owners,  and providing little known or forgotten facts about American history.  We share news you can use, interviews with interesting people who you don’t always hear about, with entertaining pieces from all over the place. And we are trying to leave you with some positive encouragement.

When I started this site in 1999, the term “Black Man With A Gun” was a little more provocative than it is now.  It told me instantly where you where on the gun rights debate.  No matter what you identified as, you reaction was quantifiable.  Over the years, I have learned a lot about the history of gun control, the people in the gun community, the politics behind it all and much about myself.

If you are pro-gun, regardless of your dominate race, in today’s society you are a Black Man With A Gun.  I have learned that the gun culture is a good indicator of your values as a person.

“Anyone that will give you a firearm is a friend, anyone trying to take it away from you is an enemy.”

This site will have contributors from all walks of life.  It started with me but it’s no longer just about me anymore.  I am proud to share the growing number of people I have met along my journey and they have a point of view that needs to be heard, read, seen.  Welcome to Black Man With A Gun.

I get by with a little help from my friends.


Rev. Kenn Blanchard has been on television, radio, and news print as the pro-gun black guy since 1991. He uses the “BLACK” thing only to attract attention and as a way to see where people are in their thinking. It is a brand.  He promotes the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service mixed in with being entertaining and educational. He is trying to fill a great void in our nation, and answer our collective longing to become a country that truly lives by its noblest principles.

The podcast has been online since late November 2007. It is from unintended consequences that he has became a trusted sage in an industry, community and nation that is political and polarizing. He uses this blog and podcast to lift up good people, share common goals and help when possible on a personal level.

What began as a personal blog is now a brand that seeks to grow with new voices. Welcome to Black Man With A Gun.com

    I want to thank you again Rev. Blanchard for being one of the very best speakers at an Arizona Citizens Defense League meeting that I have seen. I’ll probably start reading your book within 24 hours from now.
    Thank you for your service to our country. My niece received her Honorable Discharge from the Corps just after Memorial Day and her younger brother (on the Presidential Detail) is scheduled to receive his this coming July. Semper Phi!
    While it is a shame for us to have to fight for our God given rights, it was an honor to meet such another foot soldier as yourself.
    Keep up the good work and God bless you,

      Glenn – Amen to your comments! I’m a fellow AzCDL member. I was also there at the Annual Meeting. I really appreciated and enjoyed Reverend Kenn Blanchard’s keynote address; so much so that I bought several copies of his book. I especially appreciate Reverend Blanchard’s explanation of why there is nothing wrong with a Christian taking up arms to defend himself, his family and his country.

      Thank you, Reverend Kenn Blanchard! Keep up the great work. God Bless you!!

    Glad to see a black person that legally owns and shoots firearms, and doesn’t apologize for it. As a long-time shooter I have wondered why more blacks don’t shoot, but your argument makes sense. When I recently told someone that many of the gun-control laws were to disarm former slaves she said she had never heard of this. I explained that white Northerners who came to the South to take advantage of of the newly-liberated blacks feared retaliation, and later ‘historians’ [mostly white Northerners] didn’t want this known.

    Glad to hear you express your opinion [and in your picture you have your finger safely outside the trigger guard!]
