HEY, EVOLVE, WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN?
We believe we can all talk about guns without fighting.
We do it by saying stuff like “Don’t forget the safety!”
and “Are your husband’s guns locked up?” And we can all
agree those aren’t fightin’ words. Even if we don’t agree
on much else.
SO IS “AGREEING” YOUR MISSION?
We aim to unite Americans around personal responsibility
and gun safety to eliminate preventable gun incidents.
DO EVOLVE’S LEADERS AND EMPLOYEES SHOOT?
We work with gun owners and people who have never
touched a gun. We have firearms instructors, NRA
members, cops and soldiers, moms with guns and moms
who really don’t like guns. Everyone drops their political
agenda when they enter the Evolve space. Because everyone
here stands for personal responsibility and gun safety.
ARE YOU OPPOSED TO ME OWNING A GUN?
Nope. There are over 300 millions guns out there in America
with another 6 million sold every year. We’re not trying to
be involved in who’s allowed to own what. We’re just opposed
to accidental holes in stuff. Whether they’re in furniture or
people or a pizza, we hate accidental holes. We’re staunchly
opposed to them.
ARE YOU FOR OR AGAINST BANS ON ASSAULT RIFLES AND STANDARD CAPACITY MAGAZINES?
We let Congress deal with lawmaking. We just want everyone
to be not dead from preventable gun incidents. We dislike injuries, too.
THE MURDER RATE IS AT ITS LOWEST IN DECADES; WHY DO YOU CARE ABOUT THIS?
Each year, roughly 500 people die in accidental gun incidents.
Meaning, people are dying because of brain farts and “der” and
“doh” and “oops.” And some of the dead people are kids. This is
the dumbest thing we’ve heard since… ever. And that really bugs us.
IF YOU’RE “NEUTRAL,” WHY DO YOU INTERACT WITH KNOWN ANTI-GUN AND PRO-GUN GROUPS?
Safety is not a side; it’s everyone’s personal responsibility.
Also, we’d go on a date with a bloodsucking swamp troll if we
thought it would save a life.
MORE VIOLENCE HAPPENS WITHOUT GUNS. DON’T YOU CARE ABOUT THAT?
Totally. And we applaud the many organizations who address the full
scope of violence in America. They don’t need us to do their job; they
do it better. Our thing is gun safety. Wanna talk about gun safety with us?
HOW CAN I HELP?
Share our content, donate, print and display our materials, talk about
our mission, talk to your neighbor about guns, talk to your kids about
guns, talk to anyone about guns, and get yourself a “Clear It. Check It. Lock It.” tattoo.
IF I SEND YOU MONEY, WHERE DOES IT GO?
99% goes into getting the safety message out there;
1% feeds the interns. Any amount of dollars helps, and one day, your penny might just save a life.
I FIND “SAFETY” SO TIRESOME. I DRIVE MY CAR BLINDFOLDED CAUSE IT’S MORE EXCITING THAT WAY. I’D RATHER FALL OFF A CLIFF THAN HAVE A GUARDRAIL RUIN MY VIEW. WHEN I’M BORED, I PUT A CAR BATTERY IN THE MICROWAVE. LAST WEEK MY 3-YEAR-OLD ACCIDENTALLY SHOT MY DOG BUT THAT’S OK. DOES EVOLVE SUPPORT ME?
Nope. We think you’re a dumbass.
