Operation Blazing Sword's Three Goals


1. To educate anyone in the basics of firearms safety and operation, enabling them to make an informed decision regarding whether or not owning a gun is right for them. 

2. To demonstrate that gun owners do not hate LGBTQ people, and in fact want them able to protect themselves from violence. 

3. To champion the fact that responsible gun ownership is a civil right. All living beings have an inherent right to self-defense, and firearms are the most effective means of self-defense. 



Operation Blazing Sword was founded by Erin Palette the Monday after the terrorist attacks at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. By August 2016 it was a registered nonprofit with the state of Florida, and in November 2016 it was granted 501c3 tax-deductible charity status by the IRS. 

We hope to accomplish great things in 2017!
