TV host Dana Loesch brought what she was told was “a politically incorrect” T-shirt to the set of her show on Tuesday, which also happened to be “Gun Violence Awareness Day.” Loesch is a firm advocate of Second Amendment rights.
In her book, Hands Off My Gun: Defeating The Plot to Disarm America, Loesch argues that “gun control regulations throughout history have been used to keep minority populations under control.”
For Loesch, the subject hits close to home. In her book and her show, Dana on TheBlaze TV, she states that the topic of gun control in America needs to have active discussion met with expediency and action, not just casual, non-productive conversation. Many might argue that gun control is a matter of Second Amendment rights and one’s ability to protect their family.

The T-shirt’s reference to gun control and minorities comes at a time when the nation is in heated debate over both issues. The subject of minority population and their possession of firearms is already a hot-button one. To combine it with a statement like “It’s Because I’m Black Isn’t It” continues to add fuel to the already heated debate over the topic of weapon ownership.
The discussion of Second Amendment rights and gun control has, in the past few months, sparked much debate about a citizen’s ability to protect oneself. One concern is that there might be continued racial tensions tied to gun ownership, due to recent media reports of minorities being killed by guns.
