Founder of the Silver Star Families of America answers questions on the WWP gun Flap

Founder of the SSFOA answers questions about the alleged gun bias of the Wounded Warrior Project
Dec. 2, 2012 - PRLog -- I have been asked several times what my opinion is of the recent revelations that the Wounded Warrior Project may be biased against guns, knives and weapons of any sort.

While I have followed the story, I believe it would be inappropriate for me to speak about another nonprofit organization based on news media reports.  And while we have similar missions we are different organizations and have different philosophies and approaches.

I can say this:  At our small headquarters in Missouri we have a gun range.  It is our belief that wounded warriors are adults and trying to keep them from weapons, at least in our thinking, would be not only impossible but insulting.  The small range is available to them to use or not use at their discretion not ours.

These are the people who have fought for our 2nd amendment freedoms and we have no desire to deprive them of the freedom to enjoy a day at the range.  For most it seems to be a good experience for them, something they are familiar with and enjoy.  Many stories have been shared at our range and that is always helpful.

It is our belief that guns and knives are tools that made our country great and we celebrate that with our wounded, ill and injured.

May God bless our country and those who defend her.

Silver Star Families of America  

The Silver Star Families of America has one mission:  To remember, honor and assist the wounded, ill, injured and dying of our Armed Forces from all wars.

We pay no salaries and our overhead is running at about 3%.  That means 97 cents of every dollar donated goes to where our donors want it to go—to our veterans.
