It all started when…

Guns Matter Inc.’s founder, Isaiah Washington, felt a disconnection between people who need to protect themselves, especially those living in lesser economically advantaged communities, and the defensive firearms training industry. 

His passion for wanting to help others runs deep, and coupled with his innate abilities to motivate and take action, GMI was born.

GMI is committed to bringing real-world defensive firearms training to any responsible American, regardless of their political point of view, economic background, or geographic location. 

“I want to try to help build something over time, where you can go there and take your class, and do your training. I want to provide what I consider another option [to the NRA]..for people that want the information, the insurance, but don’t necessarily wanna deal with the politics of it all. ”
