Rick's Firearm Academy of Detroit salutes Black History Month by honoring patriots who fought for freedom. Today's honoree is the "Deacons For Defense."
They were the largely important but mostly unheralded and little publicized armed men of God who protected and guarded civil rights leaders, such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the marchers through the night, so that the protesters could march during the day and be subjected to water hose deluges and physical attacks from the police and other folks who advocated "Jim Crow" laws.
If you don't like guns, you probably don't know your history. Yep, I said it.
