    Site growth

    By my estimation the registered membership of this site has grown by about 12% since Newtown. That's a pretty healthy increase relative the overall timeline of this site.

    I know it's just me and my own paranoia, but at least some of those new posters are not really on the side of gun ownership, or pro 2A at all. I don't like being suspicious of newbies just because I'm suspicious, but I would caution posters to use common sense, courtesy, and at least a fair dose of discernment as they respond to new posters that begin in-depth topics, particularly ones that center around potential legal questions. Nothing wrong with asking an opinion about this gun or that, or this holster or that one, or even ammo and where to shoot and how to shoot stuff. But when a relatively new poster begins a topic that speaks to the legality or rationale of carrying in particular situations or for particular reasons, I for one drop to a quietly defensive position on this board.

    But that's just me .....

    Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you.

    I have seen a few new posters with first posts that were suspicious since Newtown. For the most part, the responses were all legal and right in line with the overall philosophy of the board. I was impressed. This board has a great group of members.

    With the Obama-promoted interest in guns, it's only natural that folks would want more info to go with it. So here they come!
