This is an excellent idea aimed at coordinating the
various shooting sports websites and gun rights organizations to more
effectively fight the coming ban. Since all shooting enthusiasts have a stake in this, whether high power, air gun, hunting, or even paintball, it would seem that every gun-related site should at least have a link, or a notice to tie us all together for political action.

First below is page 14 of a 15 page thread on AR.com where the idea
got started. then the link for the new site, which is up and accepting
registrants, but will need a few more days to be fully operational:

Folks, Activism threads are not subject to drift and veer like other parts of THR. Remember to stay focused on the OP and not drift into other topics.

hso: Do you think this link: http://www.righttokeepandbeararms.com/phpBB3/index.php could be tacked onto the sticky List of 2A activist groups?

Probably a good idea, but the layout format is pretty heavy-handed. Bold block text (I think it's Helvetica) on a "parchment" field is pretty hard to read. Font size "screams" at you.

I'm gonna get contentious here and note that my principal concern with "Second Amendment Sites" as a class would be typically that their moderators don't seem to understand the theoretical rationale behind the First Amdendment.

There are a lot of Second Amendment sites online which look at the legal foundations of Article II, the case law, starre decisis, etc. I just as soon read legal scholarship rather than spend time in a forum listening to the choir preaching to the choir.

But then I could be entirely full of steer manure. :D

This site is in it's infancy and grew out of a desire of folks over at the AR Forum to do something for the furtherance & protection of our gun rights. There has been a lot of post-election depression & this was viewed as a way to redirect energy in a positive way. Their original intention (though at the moment they are embroiled in the issue of whether or not to allow guns to be carried at a proposed march in Washington, D.C.), is to unite the "choir" and sing with one voice across the land so that peanut gallery will realize there are a lot of voting members in this choir who care deeply about this issue. They also wish to act as a coordinator, or liaison for all the other groups, helping to tie everyone together and provide immediate communication on legislative issues, etc. I think it's a good idea and hopefully some good will come of it. I just leave it up to the moderators and people here who know more than me what, if anything, to do with it.
