KeepAndBearArms.com (KABA) has undergone a transfer of power and leadership. Launched in April of 2000, KABA has become a daily source for news and information about gun rights, gun control and gun-related activism.
Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) have purchased the website, domain name and related assets associated with the website. SAF and CCRKBA combined have over a million members and contributors nationwide, and its leaders are confident in taking KABA to the next level of growth and development.
KeepAndBearArms.com Founder Angel Shamaya says “this move is in the best interest of KABA and in the best interest of my family. While we haven’t had the resources to help KABA realize its full potential, SAF and CCRKBA have much greater resources and a commitment to immediately implementing needed changes to assure the website’s success and longevity. They’ve been in the gun rights fight for over three decades, and they’re prepared to lead KABA to new heights at a time where we’re rubbing nickels together. Their ability to reach many people who don’t currently know about the website can only strengthen public awareness about the war being waged against gun owners’ rights. We thought about this situation for a long time before concluding to hand over the reins, and I believe we’ve made the right choice, for the above and other reasons. I am doing everything I can to assure a smooth transition and to assure that KABA thrives. I am grateful for all of the support KeepAndBearArms.com has received over the years, and it is my sincerest hope that the site will continue to receive support so it can continue to expand public awareness in defense of Liberty.”
Second Amendment Foundation Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb has high hopes for KABA’s future. He says, “KeepAndBearArms.com has been the premier daily website for gun rights news and information for quite a while now. They’ve done a great job in providing needed services to the gun rights community, and we salute them for their valiant efforts. We are working closely with key KABA staff to assure a smooth, seamless transition. We are also investing in a new server and in new development in key areas to begin expanding KABA’s reach and influence. We are confident in our abilities to build upon what KeepAndBearArms.com has become while continuing to provide valuable services to the gun rights community for which KABA has become famous.”
KeepAndBearArms.com will continue to function as an independent gun rights website owned by KeepAndBearArms.com, Inc. whose shareholders consist of SAF and CCRKBA. The website will continue to be hosted by the NetSalon Corporation.
The transition to new KeepAndBearArms.com leadership is effective September 1, 2004. SAF and CCRKBA are committed to taking care of all existing members, including Life Members, and are eager to hear from KABA members about desired changes and upgrades to the site and services provided. And of course, new memberships and donors are always welcome.
