This Racist Gun Store Owner Is Refusing to Sell Firearms to This Black Customer for an Incredibly Frustrating Reason

By Namina Forna

A gun store owner was caught on camera refusing to sell guns to a black man because he suspected he might sell them to gang members. Chris King Mason went with a friend to Hopkins Gun and Tackle on Mechanicsville Turnpike in Richmond, Va to purchase firearms. This wasn't the first time he'd gone to the store – in fact, he'd already bought guns from Hopkins and also had a firearm on layaway. Nevertheless, the owner, Vance Hopkins, refused to sell him a gun.
