Sunday, May 26th, 2024

Raising Awareness and Funds for Nonprofits Supporting Military, First Responders, and the Second Amendment

ATLANTA, GA — Task Force Expedition (TFE), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for handpicked nonprofits focused on military, first responder, and Second Amendment rights, is thrilled to announce its upcoming expedition to Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, from June 27 to July 8, 2024. This “once in a lifetime” adventure, which will be documented by Prelude Films, aims to generate significant support and exposure for the five participating nonprofits.

The expedition, funded entirely by industry sponsors, pairs each sponsor with a nonprofit organization to form a team. While the adventure itself is non-competitive, the teams will compete to see who can raise the most funds through public donations at TaskForceExpedition.com. At the end of the fundraising period, the funds raised will be pooled together and equally distributed among the nonprofits, fostering a spirit of collaboration and mutual support.

Participating Teams and Sponsors:

• Team ASA Foundation sponsored by SilencerCo

• Team Frontline Healing Foundation sponsored by Crye Precision & Staccato

• Team Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F) sponsored by Elevated Silence

• Team Special Operations Wounded Warriors (SOWW) sponsored by Brownells

• Team UK sponsored by Edgar Brothers and Reptilia

“I recently read a quote that’s commonly attributed to an African proverb that says, ‘if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together,’” said Jeremy Morton, Executive Director of SOC-F and Secretary of Task Force Expedition. “I can think of no better way to capture the essence of TFE, which exists to bring people and organizations together in order to literally and figuratively climb whatever mountains lie ahead.”

“Task Force Expedition is more than just an adventure; it’s a powerful opportunity to bring much-needed attention and resources to handpicked organizations that tirelessly support our warriors, first responders, and Second Amendment rights,” said Knox Williams, President of ASA Foundation and Task Force Expedition. “By leveraging the excitement and challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, we aim to tell our stories, inspire generosity, and build lasting awareness for these essential causes.”

Blackhawk Manufacturing Group, Inc. (dba 80 Percent Arms) Settles Legal Dispute With California, Upholding Customer Privacy and Second Amendment Rights

Sunday, April 28th, 2024

Customer Privacy Upheld
Fort Worth, Texas — Blackhawk Manufacturing Group, Inc. (BMG) has successfully resolved our prolonged legal dispute with the State of California, initiated in August 2021 in San Francisco by Chesa Boudin, the former SF District Attorney who was later ousted by San Francisco voters in a 2022 recall election. The state wrongfully alleged that 80% frames and receivers sold by our company were firearms. This case has now come to a close after intense litigation. Our refusal to disclose customer data, even in the face of substantial legal costs to keep customer data private, underscores our dedication to privacy.

Throughout this challenging period, BMG has consistently upheld its principles, dedicating over 2.5 million dollars toward legal expenses aimed at safeguarding customer information from the State of California. To further ensure our customers’ confidentiality and to end ever-climbing litigation expenses, a settlement of $500,000 was reached to end this abusive litigation.

Resuming California Sales and Advocacy
We are pleased to announce that, following this settlement, we will resume offering products to our customers in California that comply with current state and federal laws. We continue to vigorously defend Second Amendment rights, with our case, VanDerStok et. al. v. Garland, set to be heard by the Supreme Court of the United States this October.

About Blackhawk Manufacturing Group
Blackhawk Manufacturing Group, dba 80 Percent Arms, is a leader in pro-Second Amendment legal actions against overregulation and the preeminent manufacturer of 80% lowers and jigs. We’re committed to upholding the highest standards of quality and service in the industry.

Thank you for standing with us and we look forward to serving the community of builders for years to come.
