The social justice group #NoMoreBlackTargets wants to ban black silhouette targets on the gun range. In their marketing video they claim “For some reason, black men are 3x more likely than their white peers to be killed by trained shooters.
A disturbing potential correlation: the most popular target to learn the usage of a firearm is a human black silhouette.”
The group then asked artists to decorate these range targets to help spread their message. They have started a petition asking Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors to stop using these targets.
