Operation Self Defense

Because self-defense is a basic human right...

...and people need to know the truth about how many people use firearms to legally defend life, liberty and property.

Any "man" who attempts to forcefully and violently have sex with a woman against her will deserves a hot, fast-moving, well-placed piece of lead as his reward. Anyone who would deny a woman the right to stop a rapist is a sick, sick, deranged, perverse, disturbed individual in need of serious psychological and spiritual counselling.

Overview of OpSD --
Operation Self Defense:

Who We Are

We are a collective of volunteer activists who devote a few minutes of time each day to search a small number of personally chosen news websites in order to find true accounts of armed self-defense in the news.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is...

• to blanket the entire U.S. online news system, both online and offline, and capture every armed self-defense story covered;

• to establish a single, centralized location in which to archive the many accounts of armed self-defense that are reported each day in America;

• to provide a comprehensive, searchable resource of armed self-defense information for researchers, writers, reporters, editors, politicians, gun rights organizations, gun rights activists and others;

• to expose the lies and misinformation put forth by anti-rights activists who claim that armed self-defense stories are rare and all but non-existent;

• to insure that Americans know how many of their neighbors, co-workers and fellow citizens are using and relying on guns to exercise a basic human right - the right of self-defense; and

• to provide a cohesive and efficient system where a large number of gun rights activists can invest a small amount of time, in a teamwork environment, to help achieve all of the above.

What We Do

We seek and find current news stories recounting true events of lawful, decent citizens using firearms to defend themselves, their loved ones, others and property -- and channel it back to this central location to assure maximum exposure of these events in a timely and efficient manner.

How We Do It

We each commit to monitoring pre-selected online news resources, every day, and we keep our commitments to assure that our strands in the Net Detective web are strong.

When we find a story where a citizen successfully thwarted a crime, we simply (quickly) forward the link to the person who acts as the OpSD funnel -- and celebrate the fact that we made sure that that fish didn't get away.

Why We Do It

Crimes are thwarted every single day, all across America, by lawful, decent gun owners who simply choose to be un-victimizable.

Unfortunately, the mainstream media isn't very helpful in getting these stories widely reported, and there is no online organization getting "all" of these stories.

Working as a team, as we blanket the entire nation's online news resources, we make a difference by assuring that there is a place where people can find out about these effective, successful uses of firearms to save life, liberty and property.

We are OpSD -- to help spread the word that Guns Save Lives.

About OpSD Team

We are a loosely knit group of individuals who care about preserving and restoring the right of the people to keep and bear arms for self-defense and liberty defense. We come from all walks of life and live in many places throughout America and abroad.

We know that working as a team allows us to accomplish significantly more than any of us can achieve as individuals, and we enjoy the fact that we are all connected in a common bond of camaraderie toward a single purpose.

If you have additional questions, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
