More guns were sold in the US last year than in any year in recorded history – and leading the self-defense arms race were African Americans, who purchased guns at a rate 60% higher than in 2019. The number of Black people with guns has increased, but with it, the emergence of a deadly double standard when it comes to exercising Second Amendment rights.

VICE News’ Alzo Slade meets the major players arming up the Black community, protecting the Black Community and those who have seen first hand why arming up as a Black person can carry unique and deadly risks.
