In a discussion about the increase of Black women purchasing firearms in recent years, ABC's "The View," guest co-host Sherri Shepherd told the audience why she’s a proud gun owner.
"I bought a 9 MM gun," Shepherd announced to an amused audience. "I don’t know why you’re laughing."
"During the quarantine, I felt really helpless, Joy, and we’re talking about depression," Shepherd explained, before explaining her firearms have helped her protect her children. "I felt Jeffrey would look at me like he was so scared. I get these little alerts in my neighborhood app about a march in the neighborhood, and I thought how am I supposed to protect my son if something happens?"
