C3 Networks is Proud to Introduce 2AC3 – the Social Network for the Firearms Community

Monday, July 1st, 2019

2AC3 is an online haven free from the censorship that the firearms community faces on other social media platforms.


Our Mission: To provide the firearms community with a place to connect, preserve pro Second Amendment culture and prevent the suppression of firearms content online.

Mainstream social media services have steadily worked to limit the posting and sharing firearms related content, with a clear end state of eliminating firearms content from their platforms altogether. exists to prevent the firearms community from becoming isolated and disconnected, and serves as a hub for the exchange of news, information, and firearms content that can’t be shared on other sites.

2AC3 is a modern, fully featured social media platform that can be enjoyed across both desktop and mobile devices. New members can expect a familiar and easy to navigate interface where you can find and interact with firearms related content and like minded members of the community.

Manufacturers and retailers of firearms, ammunition, and accessories can freely list their products on 2AC3. In addition members can also post listings of their own firearms and accessories for sale or trade.* With the launch of the 2AC3 Marketplace in late summer 2019, it will be even easier to find firearms and accessories listed for sale on 2AC3.

2AC3 is experiencing rapid membership growth as the firearms community recognizes the need for their own dedicated social network. We encourage interested parties to visit us at to learn more and become a member. Questions or comments can be sent to

After having Tatiana appear as a guest on our show twice, I was overwhelmed by her knowledge, her teaching skills, her delivery and her way of disseminating complex information in a way that is easily digestible to the masses. With Allen and I being civilians (who did not serve in the military, not prior law enforcement) and with Tatiana having a similar background as us, but also putting in the same kind of time, effort, diligence and discipline to go out and learn on her own volition, I had to have her on our team!

Patriot’s Day – An American Act Of Defiance

Friday, April 19th, 2019

Each year, we remind our readers of the events of April 19th, 1775. Rebellion had been brewing on the North American continent for years. Finally, in the early hours of the day, an American Army fired on British troops, starting a war that would last for over eight years and see the ascendency of the American Eagle over this land we now call the United States.

This battle is also where we draw our concept of the iconic Minute Man from.

Each Patriot’s Day, we honor those men at Concord and consider what it must have been for them to stand there together, in the face of the world’s greatest army and take up arms in the defense of their colony from oppression.

This militia came together on that morning to protect their arms from seizure by an oppressive government. That is a fact.


“Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”
-John Parker
Captain of Militia

As the initial volleys of fire were exchanged near daybreak on Lexington Green, colonial volunteers fell back in the face of over 500 occupying British troops. But as the battle moved on to Concord, the tide turned, and the redcoats were routed as more and more colonists joined the fray.

The British troops retreated through Concord where they were reinforced. Despite boasting a strength of 1700 men, they remained no match for the determined colonists who forced them to retreat to the safety of Charlestown in Boston. The militiamen continued their pursuit which transformed into the Siege of Boston.

Today, join me in remembering those American warriors who pledged their lives to give us our hard fought freedoms and this great land.

SureFire Founder John Matthews Responds to Anti-2A Allegations

Sunday, February 24th, 2019

Over the weekend, social media was ablaze with allegations that SureFire is anti-Second Amendment due to donations made in the past to Democrat political campaigns. Dr John Matthews, Founder and President provided us with this statement.

In all of our work with SureFire over the years, nothing could be further from the truth than claiming they are anti-2A. They not only support the Constitution, but they provide those Americans who defend it day-to-day with some of the finest tools available.

Dear Customers and Concerned Citizens:

It has been brought to our attention that past political donations from the SureFire Political Action Committee (PAC) have been called in to question along with SureFire’s stance on the Second Amendment. Before we get to the facts we’d like to thank you for your support and we sincerely appreciate your loyalty.

It’s a long read but the details should provide a fuller perspective:

Established in 2010 and disbanded in 2014, the purpose of the SureFire PAC was to gain the support and assistance of our state representatives (both Democrat and Republican) so that we had a chance at (1) obtaining congressional funding to develop sighting technology that would improve the warfighter’s ability to aim crew-served weapons, and (2) to be able to reach out to our representatives when we need assistance doing business in California.

During its existence from 2010 to 2014 the SureFire PAC made donations totaling approximately $10,356 to Democrat representatives and $16,610 to Republican representatives.

It should be noted that we were unsuccessful in obtaining congressional funding for the weapon-sight development project mentioned above, and that all of our product development has been self-funded. But if you are a defense business that hopes to get congressional budget earmarked funding and/or program support for defense-related projects, you typically need to get the attention and support of at least one of your state representatives—or all of them if possible—so they can “represent” your interests during the budget appropriations process.

This is how business is done in the defense industry, by most medium-sized defense manufacturers, and by all of the large ones. And, it’s what we needed to do to achieve our mission of ensuring the safety, success and survival of our customers—whether military, law enforcement, or patriot-citizen.

In 2018 one of our employees donated $500 to the DNC Services Corp, a pro-Democrat organization. This was a personal donation, had nothing to do with SureFire, and despite the fact that we, as a company, are not aligned with his political preferences, we recognize his right to think differently and to vote as he pleases.

SureFire (as an organization) is 2A to the core. I myself am an NRA Lifetime Endowment member; our VP of Suppressors and Weapons is a veteran and world-class competitive shooter; our VP of Sales and Marketing is a veteran and competitive shooter; our VP of Military Sales gave 21 years to his country, 18 of them as an Army Special Operations commando; our graphic designers practice dry-firing and handgun drills in the office; our team-building events usually involve shooting; many of our executives and employees are concealed carry permit holders and carry daily. Most of us worry about how to live our 2A lives without running afoul of so-called “assault rifle” laws, reduced-capacity magazine regulations, and all the other restrictions we deal with as firearms owners, and as a manufacturer of firearms and firearms accessories in California.  

We also support organizations such as the National Rifle Association, American Suppressor Association, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, among others, and are proud of our long history of sponsoring USPSA, IDPA, 3-Gun and other shooting sports. Come by our office and you’ll see we share the same values as you do when it comes to the freedom to bear arms.

Our focus is on providing the warfighter, first responder, and armed citizen with the tools they need to win the fight, and we promise to keep making products that support the Second Amendment, the American worker, our economy, our military, and freedom in general.

John Matthews
Founder & President
