    Hello all!

    For those of you who don't know me, I'm an illustrator and graphic designer living in Washington state. A couple of years ago I began creating pro-2A designs, mostly for my own amusement or to share with my fellow members on gun forums like this one. At one point, someone suggested that I put some of these designs on shirts/hats/mugs and see if they sell. I've had some limited success via word-of-mouth, enough to make me think that a more serious effort at marketing could be worthwhile.

    So I've decided to take the risk and see if this will sink or swim. I scraped some money together and bought a Supporting Vendor package here on NWFA and now I'm officially hawking my wares. Below is most of the RKBA inventory (with a couple of miscellaneous extras at the bottom) and these designs are available on a pretty decent variety of merchandise.

    If you have time, I would be interested in feedback on the designs or the online store. Buying, telling a friend, or just wishing me luck are all helpful. Thanks!

    -Brian


    PS: I'll be adding new designs/merchandise whenever possible, so please check the store once in a while to see what's new.

    Well, actually I wasn't mocking you, agreeing or making a worthless statement. I think the truth is, most people would agree that soldiers defend our ability to have rights. I can provide you with substance, see:winkkiss:

    No Zombie, minor difference... its a shirt! how about, if you don't like it, don't buy it... Asking this guy to take the picture off his website is rude and not necessary. Its not false, its the way it is...

    No effort to paint you that way... I am debating... you say its false, I say not... 1- soldiers do fight for Americas rights (remember I am saying soldiers, not the government) 2- the change of a few words IN THIS CONTEXT sounds like a lawyer's or politician's attempt to make things to their "political correctness" -"Soldiers DO NOT provide rights. If humans provide them, then it's a PRIVILEGE and thus can be granted, denied, or regulated. A right is something you have simply by EXISTING, and is granted by no human (God if you believe in one, or your existence if you don't).". 3- asking a guy who put hard work into designing this picture is a little rude if you consider he DID spend time designing it and you really have no say as to if he takes it off or not. 4- lastly, you just sound like you are talking down to this guy- you an unknown person, trying to teach morality.

    BUZ: Thanks for the compliment (even if did get edited)!

    AZ: I understand the point you're making; it's the same point I make when I tell people that the BoR doesn't "grant" rights, it "recognizes" them and prohibits the government from restricting them.

    I don't want to debate possible interpretations of a six-word compare-and-contrast bumper sticker slogan. Being a former soldier, I interpret it differently as do all of the fellow service members with whom I am currently acquainted (and their families, too). One of them was particularly fond of the design because he is a JAG lawyer and said "I've got both covered!"

    The term "provide" has some pretty broad applications. I pay the rent on our home but I didn't build the house; I pay for the heating fuel but a company does the delivery; I pay for the groceries but I don't grow or package the food; and, technically, the money I use for all these expenses comes from my employer. Yet no one would argue that I "provide" for my family.

    So, in this same sense, the rights that have been bestowed on us by our Creator are "provided" by those willing to pay the cost of bringing those rights home and making them real. It doesn't have enough accuracy to be chiseled in marble, but I firmly believe it has enough truth to get put on a shirt.

    Or a coffee mug.

    Or a tote bag. You saw the tote bags, right? Those things are awesome!

    Don't worry about it Jump. I agree with all of them. I guess being a veteren that had my boots on the ground in some "humanitarian" missions make me agree 100% with your logo. Soldiers are the ones that pay in blood for your right to be. Keep that in mind....
