A group of black gun owners with the Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt Pistol & Rifle Gun Club marched in a “Second Amendment Unity Walk” in Austin, Texas Saturday, calling attention to illegal immigration and demanding reparations.
They also attacked the Biden administration for, as they said, pandering to Asians after hate crime killings in Atlanta, but ignoring the killing of blacks in Buffalo by an avowed white supremacist.
Police led the march featuring scores of participants, many of whom open carried handguns and long guns. They chanted against illegals and demanded Biden “close the border.” They also demanded a hate crime bill to protect blacks from white supremacists.
According to the group’s leader, “General E.” this is their third year doing this “Unity Walk” and they claimed successes from both the first year’s campaign against no-knock warrants and the second year’s march drawing attention to a man supposedly held eight years without a trial.
“We need to start holding these politicians accountable,” General E. said. “Our vote isn’t something they can take advantage of anymore. Historically, black people have always voted Democrat for the last sixty years. We’re not going to give our vote away for free any more.”
The UK Daily Mail carried the story . . .
Armed activists with a coalition of black self-defense groups marched in Austin, Texas over the weekend calling for an end to illegal immigration and demanding that President Biden close the borders.
Some of the activists chanted ‘close the borders’ and ‘take your a** home’ as they marched toward the Texas Capitol in the ‘Second Amendment Unity Walk’ on Saturday.
The march was led by The Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt Pistol & Rifle Gun Club. Their demands also included reparations for descendants of enslaved people and a hate crime bill protecting Black Americans.
The group faced opposition from a handful of Trump supporters and other protesters gathered at the Texas State Capitol to support January 6 defendants.
Saturday’s march comes after Texas Gov. Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey sent thousands of migrants by bus to Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago, Illinois – all three sanctuary cities that have pledged not to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.
The gun-toting march gained the attention of some in the mainstream media who had previously sensationalized law-abiding Americans marching and protesting while armed.
When the Black Second Amendment march arrived at the Texas State Capitol, others were there.

General E. and his followers didn’t make friends with supporters of January 6th protesters who have been jailed by the Biden Administration. In fact, the Unity March people described the January 6th people as “White privilege at its finest.”
And in case anyone thought the group’s criticism of Biden’s open borders and the open display of firearms meant support for Republicans, a speaker for the group said . . .
‘Republicans, do not dare to make the mistake of thinking you will get our vote just because we believe in exercising our Second Amendment.’
‘Yes, I’m talking to you Ted Cruz and Governor Abbott.’
‘Don’t think we are standing with you because we are against illegal immigration.’
As the Daily Mail reports, the group plans to return to the Texas state house next year to lobby for legislation.
