The main reason is that I suck at raising money and I was reminded of that every time I visited my own website. When I started 2AFund.com on January 1st of 2019, my vision was that we could, together create a fund and the group that raised those funds would decide how it would be spent to further 2A causes. The problem is, again, I suck at asking people for money and honestly, no one stepped forward to volunteer to do so either. I did do some cool projects that year and spent $6k of my own money supporting the 2nd Amendment, as I have my whole adult life. You can see list of projects for 2019 here.
The other reason for the change is that I honestly think people have forgotten what the 2nd Amendment actually does for us in this great country. It allows for the security of our country both through defense of enemies abroad and also enemies at home. This security is what allows us to pursue happiness. Yes, the pursuit of happiness, remember that?
"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." ~Thomas Jefferson
Now I am going to catch crap for this and already have but I really have no one to answer to but myself. If I am going to support the 2nd Amendment, I will do it my way. And my way is to remind people about why we should be happy we have the freedoms that our founders designed into our Constitution. There are enough people in the "2A community" to carry the serious talk and who think 2A content can only be about guns and laws. This content is fine and needed but I have gone for months without hearing anyone speaking to why. What I hear mostly is doom and gloom and news about riots and looting and death. If that is your bag, fine, but don't bring me down Debbie :) I will remind you that the bulk of the people in this country live a peaceful and happy life and that security is what guarantees this existence.
Now take your children or your spouse or a friend to the range and have some fun! :)
