GoFundMe.com is a website that facilitates online donations for a variety of causes. In fact, they claim to be the #1 personal fundraising website in the world. They also publicly state, “There’s no easier way to share your story and attract support.”This promise is true for everyone…. unless you are a small family-owned gun store in Acworth, Georgia who dares to uphold the United States Constitution.
On April 3rd at 3:58 am, a faceless thug broke into Liberty Guns. He carved through 3 firewalls, overcame a robust security system, and stole 36 handguns worth more than $25,000. To add insult to injury, the insurance company is refusing to cover the theft.Liberty Guns opened it’s doors in January 2014 and firmly believes in upholding the constitution by helping law-abiding citizens to exercise their 2nd amendment rights. Because of this theft and the subsequent lost business, Liberty Guns has lost more than $50,000 in two weeks.
After learning that the insurance company would not cover this heist, the Liberty Guns team decided to start a fundraising campaign onGoFundMe.com. Little did they know that GoFundMe.com would cancel the campaign within a few days of launching. Why? Because they have the following policy in the fine print…NOT ALLOWED ON GOFUNDME: The purchase, transfer, or exchange of weapons of any kind including guns, knives, explosives and ammunition.
