Official Statement on Recent Gun Violence
March 26, 2021
RALEIGH, NC – Over the last week and a half, our nation, still reeling from the devastating loss of life from the coronavirus, suffered another traumatic blow. Twice within a week, individuals took it upon themselves to take away the lives of eighteen innocent people. Someone’s child, mother, father, sister, brother, husband, wife, and grandparents. These are lives that meant so much to the family and friends that lost them. We at InHer Piece want to express our heartfelt condolences to those affected by the recent domestic terror attacks and would like to express that we stand with the victims of gun violence and other acts of domestic terrorism.
We at InHer Piece understand this is a sensitive time in our nation, one that intersects across all lines of marginalization. We also understand the narrative that is going on between different groups in America. However, we want to use this time to focus on those that have lost loved ones, and for us, that is a full stop. Right now, these individuals need all the love and support they can get. Yes, we understand that as a member of the 2A community, there are certain stereotypes applied to us. However, we would like to first and foremost state that before 2A, we are women, wives, mothers, faith leaders, professionals, and educators. We are nurturers and we lead with love and light.
"Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah For You, O God, have heard my vows; You have given me the heritage of those who fear Your name.” -- Psalms 61

ATLANTA, GA – Once in a while you meet somebody that really stands out in the firearms industry. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting personally and observing such a person. The NAAGA member I am referring to is none other than Joy Allen who hails from the Triangle NC Gun Club. She is an outstanding member, expert shooter, and an elite Instructor who qualified and passed the rigorous NAAGA Instructor Course recently. There is a quiet confidence that she has combined with Intelligence. If that weren’t enough, as an elite shooter and trainer within the NAAGA family, she also has a Bachelor's, Master's, and PhD and is currently employed as the Director of Clinical Data Management for a company in North Carolina. On top of all of that, she is a pastor. This is a bad sista that exemplifies excellence at every level.
