Mission Statement

Our Mission is...

to provide an outlet for pro-gun-rights writers and thinkers to share their work with like-minded people;

to stimulate letter-writing within the liberty advocacy community;

to build an archive of categorized letters for use by activists who wish to save time and thus be more effective by reusing effective letters; and

to expand the cause of gun rights and liberty advocacy by producing a much larger number of letters being submitted for publication to mainstream media outlets.


What We Do

We receive letters written to legislators and other public officials, editors of newspapers and other publications and publish them in a cohesive archive for later use by the people who read this website.


Why We Do It

The reasons we launched this Team includes but is not limited to the following...

Good writers deserve to be heard.

Good letters can be reused, especially by those who don't enjoy writing letters but would gladly reuse letters written by others.

Many mainstream media outlets shun pro-gun-rights letters. Increasing the volume of such letters by reusing those published on our site may help change that pattern.

Many people send us great letters, and we finally realized that an intelligent system was in order to make the letters count for more than "today's human interest."

We've had many requests that we do something of this nature -- and here it is.


About Liberty Letters Team

This KeepAndBearArms.com Team is in its early stages of development. Richard Beamis is the Director, and he is currently seeking an Assistant Director. If you have interest in contributing as a volunteer teammate, please contact Richard.


Contact Liberty Letters

Before you make contact, please know that the volume of emails we receive is often intimidating. Please make certain that your question is not already answered in our Frequently Asked Questions section or elsewhere on this page.

Please also make sure that any submissions to our Liberty Letters archives fall within Submission Guidelines.

PLEASE DO NOT this email address to ANY distribution lists without express written permission to do so. Thank you!

Director, Richard Beamis
Letters@KeepAndBearArms.com


Frequently Asked Questions

What are the criteria for submitting letters to be published on this website?

Read the Submission Guidelines for your answer.

How often do you publish letters submitted to your site?

As we refine our systems, you will begin to see letters published 5 days a week, sometimes several letters each day. As we are a volunteer team, we reserve the right to take a break from time to time and thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.


Submission Guidelines

Submitting to Liberty Letters is very simple. When you email a letter to a public servant, an editor of a newspaper or elsewhere, you simply send a copy of your letter to us -- and adhere to Submission Guidelines below:

IF YOU WANT YOUR LETTER TO BE PUBLISHED...

Our "Letters to Editors" email address is ONLY for use when copying us on letters you've sent to the editors of other news sources, to legislators, to pro-gun or anti-gun individuals or organizations, etc. 

This is NOT the place to send feedback about KeepAndBearArms.com. REPEAT: This email address is SOLELY a place to receive pro-RKBA letters that have been sent to others.

We will ONLY print letters that involve the right of the people to keep and bear arms or a closely related subject.

We will ONLY print letters that are edited and ready for publication.

That includes spelling (use spell checker), reasonably sensible grammar, paragraphed thought progression, etc.

We reserve the right to edit letters sent to us if we deem it necessary to do so. 

Such editing could include the removal of inappropriate language or in cases where the letter is a thousand words too long. (Most editors won't publish a letters longer than 750 words, and some of them have submission guidelines limited to a third of that, or less.)

We do not guarantee that sending a letter to us means that it will be published.

If we print it we print it; if we don't, we don't.

If your letter does not include your full name and email address and the header that shows it was already sent to its original destination, chances are good that it will not be published. 

If the Founding Fathers of this great nation could sign their name to the Declaration of Independence knowing it would mark them for death, you can sign your name to a letter to the editor. If you disagree, go publish anonymously somewhere else, and drop back by when your backbone matures.

If your letter to an editor is in response to an online article or publication, PLEASE include the website address of that article so others can go read it and write their own letter if so inclined.

PLEASE include the full header of your emailed letter if you sent it through email. 

Having the date and time you submitted it plus proof that it was actually sent provides online documentation that can and eventually will be used confront editors of other news agencies that refuse to print the gun owner's side of the story. And having the email address to which your letter was sent allows readers to quickly follow your lead.

DO NOT submit your letters in all caps. 

If you write in all caps, dump the text into a text editor and change it to "sentence case" before sending it.

DO NOT add the "Letters" email address below to any distribution lists, not now or ever. 

If you do, it will be considered unsolicited email and treated as such. We have enough to do without having to get 10 copies of every email on the internet that has the word "gun" in it. :-)

FIRE AWAY

To submit a letter you've written to an editor, to a writer, to a legislator, or to anyone else in defense of the right of the people to keep and bear arms, follow ALL of the guidelines above, and send it here:
