Proudly declare that you stand FOR individual rights and AGAINST discrimination! Here at Gadsden Guns, we believe that fear and prejudice are bad decision makers, and that’s why we’re out there every day educating people, sharing the TRUTH about firearms and shooting sports, and opposing anyone who uses fear, ignorance, and misinformation to keep the American people defenseless.
Even in 2015, discrimination still runs rampant, but it goes farther than you think. It’s not just about race – it’s about unscrupulous people in power using the public’s insecurities and lack of knowledge to assert control over the populace. Take, for example, the idea of an “assault rifle.” Did you know that there’s really no such thing? The myth of the so-called assault rifle is so widespread that most people think the AR in AR-15 stands for Assault Rifle, but in actuality, it’s an abbreviation for ArmaLite, the manufacturer. So what makes a rifle worthy of that scary title?
The answer might surprise you.
In true ATF style, the rules for what makes a gun an “assault rifle” are not clearly defined and have nothing to do with the actual function of the weapon. Irrelevant features like forward grips, a black finish, “high-capacity” magazines, a folding or telescoping stock, bayonet mounts, flash suppressors or firearms with threaded barrels to accommodate one, barrel shrouds, and even the overall weight of the unloaded gun are enough to prompt states like California to ban a gun outright as an “assault weapon.” Never mind that most of these things are SAFETY FEATURES…the only reason restrictions and bans like the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 succeed is because of this: they look scary.
Oh, and, by the way, do you know who originally coined the phrase “assault rifle?” That would be none other than Adolph Hitler.
That brings us to our first point: no person and no item should be discriminated against just because of the way it looks. That’s why we’ve ordered a set of brand new, exclusively designed tee-shirts with some pretty compelling artwork to illustrate this point.
And for the next five days only we’re offering a pre-order discount on our new tee-shirt designs. To save $3.00 off the price of your new shirt, stop by the store and mention this blog post or use promo code Pre-Order-Ts at online checkout. This deal won’t last very long at all, so hurry before the price goes up! Pre-order time is up!
We also strive to educate people that mistakenly believe only certain people who “need” to have a gun should be allowed to have one. Self defense is a basic human right, just as much as the right of free speech and the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. Our Declaration of Independence said it perfectly, that these truths [are] self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. Defending yourself and your family is a right that no person or government should be able to take away. Who has the authority to tell you in what ways you’re allowed to protect the lives and safety of your loved ones? Who gets to decide what people are worthy of protecting their children with guns and who must depend on government bodies like the police instead?
In that spirit, our second brand new tee-shirt design calls out anyone who thinks it’s a matter of privilege to protect our families…another exclusive design only available from Gadsden Guns, and now available in six different colors!
Remember, the pre-order tee-shirt deal only lasts for the next five days, until Monday, July 13th, so order yours today. Use promo code Pre-Order-Ts at checkout to save $3.00 off the price of your exclusive shirt! Time’s up, but you can still access these exclusive designs at their regular prices.
