Tony, a USMC veteran, was inspired to create the Diversity Shoot after attending a National Rifle Association (NRA) event where he noticed that there were few attendees who were people of color. He realized that the lack of diversity in the firearms community was not due to a lack of interest, but rather due to a lack of outreach and inclusion efforts.
The first 2A4E Diversity Shoot was held in March 2015 at the Gun For Hire Range in Woodland Park, New Jersey. The event was open to people of all races, genders, and sexual orientations, and included firearms training, education, and range time.
