When we put it like that, it doesn't even seem like the oppressed never really had a chance, huh?
Philando Castile and Jason Washington were both black gun owners shot and killed by police, and in each case, the NRA declined to condemn the circumstances of their deaths. Which seems pretty odd, considering that Castile and Washington were killed directly as a result of their legal firearm ownership.
Castile was shot at point-blank range by St. Anthony PD Officer Jeronimo Yanez, who later claimed self-defense, despite Castile telling Yanez that he possessed a firearm and telling him repeatedly that he wasn't reaching for it. (He was reaching for his papers when he was shot.) Meanwhile, Washington was gunned down by PSU Police Officer Shawn McKenzie despite having his firearm holstered and visible on his hip, being in possession of an open-carry permit, and walking away from McKenzie. In these both cases, carrying a firearm was an automatic death sentence, but the NRA never bothered to care or let fly with some that anti-tyranny rhetoric that we see plastered on bumper stickers everywhere.
Actually, that's not entirely fair. NRA media personality Dana Loesch has commented on the deaths of Castile and Washington ... to say that the police were justified on both occasions. Though, to be fair to Loesch, she was probably saving her anger for the story that she broke the next day, one that would impact gun owners even more so than the threat of extrajudicial murder: The fact that a children's show about trains was promoting diversity.
