Help me not get banned
« on: October 16, 2018, 11:04:36 AM »
So I joined this forum with the goal of promoting 2nd amendment activism. I am not planning on spamming the forum with 50 posts a day all trying to recruit activists, ask for money, and ask for shares.

However, I would like to create 2-3 threads in which I can attempt to recruit activists and volunteers, Ask for donations, and promote media regarding my activism.

Help me figure out if this is possible and if so the best way to go about it.

www.Help50.org is my website

My mission is to make women safer in their homes through the purchase of firearms, safety training, home alarm systems etc.

Tell ya what, it's a good cause, so I'll sticky your link on the Poli page at the top for a week.
And that's because you, as a Conservative, asked for permission, unlike many fools that come in and spam, then wonder why they were banned.

Solar, thank you. I'm not trying to ruin anyone's community. While I believe what I'm doing I do try to think of others.

You're welcome, glad to help.
BTW, Seldom do we ever do this, which means it will get more attention from our large readership.

I want to say thank you to Solar as well as the rest of this community. I recognize and appreciate the opportunity you've given me here.

If you have any questions I'll do my best to answer them all here. I'll give you some brief info about myself, my goals, and my plan of action to get a little bit out of the way.

My name is Robert Bertrand. I previously blogged and tweeted as TYCapitalism (until I got bored of blogging and banned from Twitter). I joined the Navy in 2004 and was honorably discharged in 2014. I was supposed to be a submariner, but my kidney stones had other plans. I was a Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class and worked as a BMET. I'm very googleable for some reason. I was part of Kyle Coplen's Armed Citizen Project around 2012 in a completely online capacity (title of communications director).

In 2016 I moved to a small town in Southern Illinois and worked as a traveling BMET until the beginning of this year.  I go to school full-time online and raise a small family. So obviously I needed to throw another major life changing decision into the mix. At the end of June I made the decision to continue the Armed Citizen Project in the form of an individual activist rather than a large group of volunteers. I took a self-made crash-course in Blue state bureaucracy and gun laws and figured out how I could legally purchase shotguns for women living in low-income neighborhoods. It's been a learning experience. Initially I provided the shotguns first with the promise of training second. I raised about $1500 through GoFundMe before they found me in violation of their anti-gun policies. I raised another $500 through the website with help from Bearing Arms blog writer Tom Knighton. I have a list of over a hundred women who all want a shotgun. Many of them profess that they live in fear. Most of them live alone. It's a great burden to bear.

My goal is increase gun ownership among women and to try and help prevent women from becoming victims. To do this I am attempting to create a network of similarly minded people to become gun activists. I am always looking for online volunteers to send out emails and call into radio stations, but I am also looking for people who want to do it themselves. I run the Armed Citizen Project FaceBook page and have a bit of reach there to promote activists. Other than that I can provide advice on how to get started and tell you what kind of mistakes I've made that can be avoided.

I have also encouraged women to start their own GoFundMe accounts to ask for funds to attend self-defense training. So far no one has taken me up on that idea. I intend to promote paid activism on the right (as it pertains to the second amendment) through both Facebook and the website.

I'm not out to get rich or famous. I don't want to be a politician. I just want to make a difference.

Sincerely,
Robert Bertrand
