Who Is Mom-At-Arms?


Late December of 2018, after pacing the floors and jotting down her concerns in an old notebook, Mom-At-Arms creator, Jill McDaniel, went to her social media platforms and threw out ideas to her pals. Before she knew it, she was setting up a website to put those concerns, her experiences, and so forth on screen- in full detail.

Mom-At-Arms was born. With Jill's dedicated mission to bring truth to the twisted narratives that Gun Control groups throughout America push on society, Mom-At-Arms caught the eye of many others across the nation, that shared similar passions.

Collaborations were made and before she knew it, Jill was doing interviews with other major sites and outlets to get her voice heard- as well as she, herself, interviewing influential Gun Rights Activists from all over. Not too long, Jill was recognized as a National Activist in the Gun Rights arena, making her a go-to resource and analyst. 

In the middle of 2019, she encouraged others to start writing and making "paper trails of facts" for the public, and Mom-At-Arms grew even more- with contributing writers, men & women of different backgrounds, all over the country. Since then, MAA investigations have been used by other 2A Organizations all over the country, in Senate/ House legislative hearings. Jill is also one of the few women in the 2A debate that has gone up against the founder of Moms Demand Action, Shannon Watts, and outwitted her. 

In January of 2020, Mom-At-Arms joined forces with the grassroots org, 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control to re-establish the VA Chapter in the midst of tyrannical VA legislators using Constitutional Rights against Virginians for profit, and later as an active board member. That same year, Jill also stepped into the shoes as VA State Director for Women for Gun Rights, where she and her team throughout the state back the efforts by established 2A Heavy Hitters, The VCDL & GOA

Jill took her efforts one step further and became a USCCA Certified Firearms Instructor in 2021, one of the few women in the industry serving the southern Virginia area. Today, she uses her free time outside of her home- life as a wife and mother, to educate individuals in her area on firearms safety & training, personal safety, financial planning, mentoring, and more. She also expanded her advocacy in late 2022 to help in rehabilitation of those affected by Domestic Violence, as well as other tragedies may face.

In February of 2024, Jill took the position as Academy Director for the Virginia Citizen's Defense League (VCDL) where she has been charged with the responsibility of helping guide and educate Virginia's families and youth on the importance of the 2nd Amendment, as well as firearm safety and first aid practices.
