Jenn Jacques has been a freelancer contributing to Bearing Arms for almost a year. We’ve been so impressed with her that we’ve decided to bring her on full-time!
Gun rights advocate and journalist Jenn Jacques joined the Townhall Media family of web properties this week as a new editor for BearingArms.com, a Second Amendment news site with over two million readers.
“Jenn Jacques is a refreshing voice for the gun rights movement,” said Bearing Arms editor Bob Owens. “As a longtime hunter, a mother, and a recent concealed carrier, she shares the experiences of so many new gun owners in the United States. She is a great asset for Bearing Arms and will help us take our site to the next level.”
A native of rural Northern Wisconsin, Jenn was raised in an NRA-supporting household. As her father taught her firearm safety early on, she now teaches her children in the same respectful manner. Married with three children, Jenn currently owns AIM Hunting and has experience as a former private detective. In addition to her work on BearingArms.com as a Second Amendment writer, she works as an advocate of concealed carry and is active in Wisconsin politics. Jenn enjoys hunting, fishing, shooting trap, camping, gardening, reading, and attending Brewers and Packers games.
Jacques released the following statement upon the announcement:
“I’m so thrilled to be an official part of the Townhall Media family with Bearing Arms! I feel this opportunity is an amazing platform for me to educate new and recent gun owners as I complete further training myself. With this new role, I hope to erase gun owner’s hesitation to seek additional classes and embrace being knowledgeable, not only in gun safety, but concealed carry best practices and local and national CCP laws. This is crucial for effectively advocating for the right to carry.
I believe an armed society is a polite society, but I also believe those who choose to carry should be trained to do so responsibly.”
BearingArms.com is the newest and fastest growing site for 2nd Amendment related issues. Long-time gun blogger, firearm education advocate and rifle instructor Bob Owens brings tremendous knowledge and credibility to the site and offers the type of content you want to hear – unfiltered by mainstream media prejudice. Editors at Bearing Arms believe in a pre-existing, unalienable right of self-defense that comes with a duty to master and use arms in a judicious and responsible manner.
Jenn’s first assignment as editor is covering the Great American Outdoor Show, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Look for more great work coming from Jenn soon!
