SecondAmendment Ink was founded February 2013 in response to the increase in State and Federal gun control legislation. As law abiding gun owners, we believe that our right to bear arms is becoming infringed upon. Scott Welch felt the need to step up and do something to help preserve our Second Amendment Right.
Within 2 weeks, Scott had our first shirt sold and Second Amendment Ink was born. Since then, our shirts are sold in several outside retail locations as well as online, introduced a second design, added sweatshirts to our inventory, and increased our Facebook presence. We’ve also participated in many local gun organizations’ events and banquets.
We sell American Made apparel with eye catching graphics that appeal to every demographic. All of our apparel is 100% American made, designed and printed here in Redding, CA by Inked Up Graphics.
Ink is used as a permanent mark like tattoos. Our constitution was written in ink. Ink was used to record important historical documents. Those that witnessed the event signed their names in Ink. Ink has played an important role throughout history.
Our core values are built around family and community. We use the Second Amendment daily whether we’re patronizing local gun shops, educating our children about gun safety, or spending time with our family target shooting on the weekends.
We believe there is a need to inform and educate the American people about our Constitutional Rights, including but not limited to the Second Amendment – the Right to Bear Arms. Our Constitutional Rights were a gift fro our Forefathers and are not to be taken lightly. It is important to ensure that future generations have the same opportunity to exercise our freedoms that have been fought for.
The designs printed on our shirts have been specially designed to reflect our core values. Although we are a company centered around the preservation of our Second Amendment, our designs do not include firearms on them. We do this for a couple of reasons. First, we want children to be able to wear our apparel to school. Our children are our future and it is important that they carry on our passion for the Constitution. Second, are designs are to invoke conversation with others who are not familiar with our cause or not knowledgeable about firearms and our Right to Bear Arms.
