Bob Owens, 46, founder and editor of the Second Amendment website Bearing Arms, has been found dead from a gunshot wound to the head.
Police discovered his body on Monday at an intersection in Fuquay-Varina, near Raleigh, N.C. A firearm was found nearby.
“In the end, it turns out that I’m not strong,” Owens wrote in an online message before his death. “I’m a coward, and a selfish son of a bitch. I’m sorry.”
