Black NRA Instructor Trains Detroit’s Women to ‘Ensure They’re Never Victims’

'The left thinks the Second Amendment wasn’t made for people who look like us...'

Rick Ector, a National Rifle Assocation instructor in Detroit, has trained “the Left’s worst nightmare” — a group of 4,000 non-white women — in self-defense, Fox News reported.

“The left thinks the Second Amendment wasn’t made for people who look like us. They said the same thing during the Jim Crow era too,” said Ector, a black American, in a video that the NRA posted on Thursday

Ector said that training citizens in firearm self-defense — not depriving them of their Second Amendment rights — can “ensure they’re never victims.”

“If simply taking guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens was the answer, Detroit would be the safest place on earth,” he said. “Instead, it’s seen a 53% increase in shootings in 2020 alone.”

Ector hosted the two-day annual firearm safety and training event in August.

Detroit also saw a 19 percent increase in homicides from 2019 to 2020.

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre described the policies that have caused America’s large cities to become much more dangerous in recent years.

“There’s a wave of criminal violence sweeping across all big cities in America, fueled by politicians hellbent on dismantling the police, releasing criminals onto the streets, and failing to enforce the gun laws on the books,” he said. “Instead of protecting their constituents, these politicians continue to push their extreme gun control agenda.”

First-time gun ownership and total gun sales remain near all-time highs in the United States.

“Law-abiding Americans are going out in droves arming themselves and getting trained because they know a gun is the best way to protect themselves and their loved ones,” LaPierre said.

The women who Ector trained said that they do not feel safe while walking alone in Detroit but that their firearm training will boost their confidence.

“I just moved out so I’m kind of living on my own, and I sometimes work nights, and I be out at night. No one wants to walk alone at night and feel unprotected. Especially in this society and what happens today,” a black woman said after Ector’s training.
