Gun club makes comeback in Buffalo

Gun club makes comeback in Buffalo

WIVB by George Richard

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – We know gun violence is a major problem, especially in Buffalo’s inner city. So, you may be surprised to hear that a gun club has made a comeback on the city’s east side.

It is meant to be community minded, and focus on safe gun handling, but at the same time empower the law abiding citizens of Buffalo’s inner city.

Aquil Quadir is a retired Buffalo police officer who has seen his share of gun violence. So, when some former members of an East Side Gun club recommended reviving the club, Aquiel agreed to be its president.

“We say that you are the first line of defense when it comes to your home and your family. The police are all well and good but they’re not in a position to protect you 24 hours a day, so that means it puts you in the position to have to protect yourself and your family,” said Qadir, Interim President of the Dorie Miller Rifle and Pistol Club.

The Dorie Miller Rifle and Pistol Club is made up of 75 men from Buffalo’s east side. They’ve been meeting for about six months, and practice shooting at the Niagara Gun Range in Wheatfield. The club is named for a black World War II hero, and its mission is community based to offer hunting and fishing as a sport, but also empower the law abiding citizens on streets where criminals sometime seem to be winning the battle.

Qadir said, “Anyone who is interested and concerned about protecting themselves and their family.”

“This is a wonderful idea,” said Budd Schroeder.

Budd Schroeder is chairman of the gun rights group SCOPE. He’s not phased by some who may think bringing more guns into east side homes is asking for trouble.

Schroeder said, “If the next 10 assaults, rapes, attempted murders ended up with the thug being the one who ended up in the morgue, I believe that would do more to have a peaceful society than if you double the size of the police force.”

    HAHAHA!! OMG!!! WOW!! This is so awesome! My hometown in Buffalo, NY is actually opening up a gun club. I can’t believe it. I absolutely cannot believe it. I never thought I’d see the day since Buffalo politicians run things like Philadelphia and Cleveland and so on and the people are so liberal and oblivious to the world around them. There may be hope in the people of Buffalo after all. I mean if Buffalo does something like this, you know things are bad since they usually believe everything the government tells them. I would be thinking they would be the first to have gun bans everywhere. The excrement is really hitting the fan if the people of Buffalo, NY are opening a gun club. Good for the people of Buffalo. Some of them are finally growing up. There may still be hope for my hometown, yet.

    They should help develop a National Gun Club charter for every city, town and hamlet in America.
