It recently became public knowledge that Brew City Shooters Supply (formerly Badger Guns) in West Allis has been collecting personally identifiable information from any and all people that used their range since 2009. BCSS then handed this information over to the West Milwaukee Police Department. WMPD used this information to run criminal background checks on more than 25,000 BG/BCSS customers.
BCSS has been unapologetic about this invasion of privacy and refuses to change their policy. They continue to collect information to hand over to WMPD.
August 18-19th, BCSS was planning to hold an event to help support the Wounded Warriors Project, but as a result of their actions, lost their primary sponsor and have since canceled the event. They are still encouraging people to come for that weekend and have pledged to donate HALF of their collected range fees for the day to the WWP.
Instead of letting people sacrifice their privacy under the pretense of helping veterans, let's join together for a peaceful protest and let people know exactly what BCSS is doing.
Let's encourage those people that would have donated to the WWP to protect their privacy and donate to the WWP through us instead. We will do our own collection and see that 100% of the funds collected go to the Wounded Warriors Project instead of the 50% BCSS planned on offering.
More will follow as we work out the details of this protest.
Saturday, August 18, 10am - 5pm
Sunday, August 19, 10am - 4pm
Please invite any of your friends that would like to participate.
Also, if you're comfortable doing so, we'd encourage you to exercise your 2nd Amendment Rights during this protest by openly carrying a firearm, so long as you are not a prohibited person.
