A Note from Angel Shamaya
Esteemed KeepAndBearArms.com members and
welcome site visitors,
A negative and inaccurate report has surfaced
on the internet that speaks rather poorly of me in a number of harsh ways.
Because it comes from a respected member of the gun rights community and one of
our Featured Writers, I am taking great care
in responding to assure that I respond effectively and thoroughly, touching on
each allegation contained in this rebuttal to an article I wrote.
Due to the great many productive things that

Rest assured. What will come of this is, in my
opinion, very good for the gun rights community. The fundamental issues arising
from this... disagreement... are among the most important issues we must resolve
on a large scale before we truly declare our nation healed and celebrate.

Though I'd prefer to read, edit and publish
these many great articles waiting to go on our site, because this report was

many valuable, liberty-productive lessons contained in this particular document,
I simply must respond.
And then we can get back to business as usual.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
