In the perfect meeting of the First and Second Amendments, leading gun news site Bearing Arms has merged with Human Events‘ “Guns & Patriots” newsletter to form one of the largest Second Amendment communities online anywhere in the world.

The merger boasts the nearly 1.7 million “fan” Second Amendment Supporters Facebook page, the 300,000+ subscriber “Guns & Patriots” newsletter, and millions of monthly page-views at Bearing Arms.coms.

The continuing mission of the combined communities under the Bearing Arms brand is to bring readers the most recent and best in Second Amendment news, with a focus on current events, news analysis, updates on pending legislation, countering gun control propaganda, and of course, stories of armed citizens saving lives.

Bearing Arms is helmed by editor Bob Owens, a long time shooting enthusiast, Gunsite Academy graduate, deer hunter, and Project Appleseed volunteer rifle marksmanship instructor.

Bearing Arms and Human Events are part of the Townhall Media family of web sites.
