The police officer who designed Warrior 12's "Gun Control" shirt has been getting backlash over the design.

Martinsburg, WV - A police officer who owns Warrior 12 Apparel has been the target of anti-gun voices after his latest design launched this week.

Warrior 12 makes law enforcement and patriotic apparel, including our Blue Lives Matter shirts.

The owner's newest design shows a rifle next to the words, "I'll control my guns, you control your kids." After the shirt launched, it was shared over 30,000 times in the first couple of days on social media.

"This is saying what everyone is thinking," one commenter said.

However, after the shirt launched, the officer says that he's been flooded with hate messages.

"I've been having people accuse me of being responsible for the school shootings, of having blood on my hands" he told Blue Lives Matter. "They are conflating a shirt about Constitutional rights and personal responsibility with horrific acts of mass murder."

"I've been accused of just being a pawn of the gun industry, of supporting the purchase of firearms," he added. "Well I do support the purchase of firearms. As a police officer, I've seen firsthand what happens when people's only option is to wait several minutes, or longer, for officers to arrive. In fact, if we sell enough shirts, I'm going to buy more guns."

The shirt company owner said that he understands that people are upset about school shootings, but that's why he says that people should be looking at the root causes of violence.

"Guns don't cause violence," he said. "If we can examine and work on the actual root causes of violence, then that's when we'll see a reduction in violent acts."

Worst rural calls I ever received. "101 caller hears someone breaking in and husband is at work. Negative firearms in the home. Now hear 101 caller screaming and possible sounds of SAIP." 10-04, I am 25 minutes out Code 3, is there a neighbor that can be contacted?! I fuging hated walking into a home and finding scared shitless kids and a raped woman. I would have rather found a shot burglar any day.

Great message! The individuals complaining will always complain if you are not putting their agenda message on the shirt. They only believe in the First when it covers what they want, and they aren’t buying the shirts anyway.
