Renowned defender of gun rights and founder of BearingArms.com, Bob Owens, found dead at age 46.

The people of the gun were rocked today by news that the editor and founder of BearingArms.com has died. His blog has for many years served as a cornerstone for all things gun related. An unabashed defender of the Second Amendment, he was known and respected by many within the industry.

Not much is known at this time regarding the circumstances surrounding his passing. The Truth About Guns reported the matter in remembrance.

News has come to us of the death of fellow blogger Bob Owens. Bob was the founder and editor of BearingArms.com. He was a dedicated hoplophile, an avid shooter and a fierce supporter of the right to keep and bear arms. Our condolences go out to his family, friends and co-workers. He will be missed.

As a fellow gun blogger, and Second Amendment Advocate, my deepest sympathies and condolences go to his family, and friends. My hope is the blog which he lovingly created will continue into the future.

BNO News is reporting the following:

Blogger Bob Owens, the founder and editor of the pro-gun news website “Bearing Arms,” has been found dead in North Carolina in an apparent suicide, local officials say. He was 46 years old.

Police in Fuquay-Varina, a town about 16 miles southwest of Raleigh, said the death could be a suicide but added that an investigation is still underway. The Medical Examiner’s Office and the Raleigh/Wake City-County Bureau of Identification will both assist in the investigation.
