“Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Devale Teaches His Kids About Firearms

Sistas Devale Ellis

BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Devale Ellis is hands down one of the best parents in the industry and we just love the family content he share!!

Recently, he shared a very important post about firearms and teaching his children about the importance of them.

Devale shared:

“FIRST & FOREMOST, I don’t play about fire arms. My Uncle & Godfather spent over 20+ years in law enforcement, the 2nd amendment is a privilege that is far too often taken advantage of by terrible people. With that being said, my Wife and my Sons will learn to respect the power that comes with owning firearms.

Gentlemen, protection of your family starts with providing information to said family. Give them the tools and wisdom needed to protect themselves in the event you are not present. And do it TOGETHER. There is no better feeling than knowing that your “Bonnie” can really ride if “Clyde” needs to grab the kids. 💪🏾

Lastly, teaching children the power of firearms and the safety needed to prevent accidents from happening can also take away the allure that often draws curious children to fatal mistakes. 

“Guns ain’t fun no more because Dad does a 40 minute lecture on them every time someone brings them up.”🤷🏾‍♂️


An amazing father! We love that he’s teaching this!
