An all-Black group is arming itself and demanding change. They are the NFAC

An all-Black group is arming itself and demanding change. They are the NFAC

When two loud bangs rang out on the streets of Lafayette, Louisiana, no one knew where the gunshots came from as protesters gathered to demand justice for another Black man killed by police.

Among the crowd was a group of armed Black men and women who call themselves the "Not F**king Around Coalition" or NFAC. The group did not run toward the gunshots or break formation. Instead, they kneeled on the ground amid the confusion, and then walked away after their leader shouted, "fall back! fall back!"

The all-Black, Atlanta-based group has grown in size out of frustration during a summer of protests against questionable policing and the deaths of countless Black people at the hands of police, said their founder John Fitzgerald Johnson.

Their presence has caused a stir in the cities they've visited and the group has drawn some criticism after people accidentally fired a weapon during two of their rallies, including the one in Lafayette.

3. Just signed up.

Not black (Native American), but I canít tolerate the overwhelming racism among the NRA, and most of the local range yokels (LAX Firing range).

While waiting for membership confirmation, I popped for a long sleeve T-shirt. I am legally authorized to possess a firearm so Iím sure Iíll be accepted.

Thank you for the tip.
