“It was a terrifying, horrible experience, not just because I was buying the gun; it was because of how I was treated,” Solomon told NBC News.

“I want you to be able to have a safe space to do that, because it's something so serious," Solomon said.

Of those, fewer than 10 are Black-owned, according to the National African American Gun Association, which promotes gun ownership among Black people in the U.S.

One of those people is Rhiana Arredondo, who described herself as a “tree-hugging hippie.” After watching report after report of police killings of Black people and her experience living in a predominantly pro-Trump neighborhood, she decided to buy a gun.

Just being a Black woman where I live — just being Black, it's dangerous.

It just makes you feel a little more comfortable to have the instructors be from your community,” Wood said, emphasizing that she sought out Redstone Firearms specifically because it is Black-owned.

But Redstone's owners, Solomon and her husband, Jonathan, 37, say they had to overcome a series of barriers just to open their shop, which is in Burbank, California.

"California altogether makes it almost impossible to run a gun store here at all," Solomon said.

"And so we have done our best to create that safe space for not just people in the Black community but from people from any community."

I think that's why it's important for people of color to own more gun shops, to run more schools like this."
