Yes or no?

NRA stickers? Favorite arms maker?

How about other things, like a Magpul sticker?

In some ways I want to stick some on there as a statement. In other ways, I don't know if I want to make that statement, as people will not only know I support gun rights...but probably have guns, to steal, when I'm not home.

No stickers on my car. I don't see an advantage in keeping my personal life anything but non-descript.

If I did, it would be the Molon Labe sticker mentioned above since it's more insider. Or maybe one of the white oval/black letter RKBA ones.

The thing is, if you're doing it as a statement, doing a manufacturer that most anti-gun folks wouldn't know probably won't help. Big names, especially those with a long history in the US, are probably better. Any internal acronyms or foreign phrases (where you need to know what it is to know what it is) won't raise awareness. RKBA could be a radio station for all the layman knows.

A picture of a weapon, or part of a weapon, included in the sticker would of course change this. "Protected by ________" is pretty common.

I have a satirical "Exist" sticker on my van (eBay) among others, but that's as close as I've gotten to pro-2A on my vehicle. I don't like to advertise that I carry a firearm. It's even getting to the point where I've been thinking about removing all of them for the purpose of urban camouflage. But hey, it's a hippie van. People expect to see stickers of some sort. With everything that's been going on I'm probably going to add a few to my small arsenal of stickers.

I've been thinking about adding a "Kill Your Television" sticker, especially lately.

Until I recently retired, I worked for a very left wing not-for-profit organization. I proudly displayed my NRA sticker on my desk in plain view and it will go on my car when I get another. The organization management (I was one of them.) avoided the issue even when the subject of office decor would occasionally arise. On one occasion a colleague asked if I thought such a display was appropriate in an agency dedicated to health. To which I responded, "My support of the NRA has saved lives, can you say the same about your abortion poster? I never heard another word except quiet support.

The NRA/TSRA stickers sound good. I just joined the TSRA. Isaac, I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of Austin hipsters at the idpa matches and gun show!

I think they're more akin to the outlaw country meets hippie roots of TX than the Cali liberal invaders.

I wear a Molon Labe pin on my jacket. As for hats, I'm usually wearing one of my OIF veteran hats, my NRA hat, or a plain USAF hat.

After seeing what people around here were doing to people with Romney/Ryan campaign stickers on their cars, I'm quite hesitant to put anything on my car to suggest I'm pro-2A. I already have an NRA sticker next to my license plate, surprised I haven't been keyed (I put it on long before last month).

Gun stickers on cars are just a huge neon 'Break into me' sign to thieves. You can't always be around to protect you car.

Ever had a gun stolen out of your car? I have, it sucks. I was lucky enough to get it back.

If you want to protect your 2A rights then write letters/emails and call your elected officials and talk about this issue with your friends, family and acquaintances.

What does having a sticker on your car really accomplish other than advertise that you might have one inside your vehicle? Is it helping to change a fence-sitters mind?

I keep put a couple sticker son my SUV just out of brand name support. No, I have never had a firearm stolen from a car, I refuse to leave one in my car for that reason. I agree about calling,writing, and emailing, but I see no harm in swag on a car. My small town attitude I guess, my local police and sheriffs know me and usually shoot with me. I have yet to meet one that wasn't very pro2A in my area.. Guess that is still the benefit of living in a very small town.

Certain areas of Houston are decidedly "liberal", and then there's East San Francisco, aka Austin.

I know fairly few people who carry guns, yet I am personally aware of three who have had them stolen from their cars/trucks. I will never leave a gun in a car, but a gun sticker might lead someone else to think there was one there, so my only stickers are state inspection and license plate.

Turn the music down when you get close to home, people who know where you park/live don't need to know what you have. We did find out that putting "Sony X-plod" stickers seemed to keep thieves away, maybe put some Hi-Point stickers on the car...

To me a sticker tells a potentially wrong person which car to break into or who to follow home and case the house.

I sometimes see a "protected by Smith & Wesson" on a car. To me it says "smash by window when I am at the mall".

The last sticker on my car was "Ron Paul for president". Took it off since because I don't like stickers cluttering up my car.

How is 'awareness' going to help? We need to educate and change minds. Just making a statement that you are pro-gun isnt going to do anything except:

a) get you some friendly waves from fellow gun folks
b) get you the finger from anti idiots
c) your car broken into in the hopes of finding a gun

I don't care if people see the stickers... I rarely have a gun in the car lately, and if I do, it's hidden, tethered with a steel cable, and partially disassembled... I'm honestly not worried in the least about some guy finding it in a smash-and-grab, trying to get through the cable, and then trying to figure out how to run away with it without being seen or stopped.

There must be something to people breaking in your home or truck because of stickers. There was an article in a NRA magazine advising gun owners not to put the browning sticker that comes with the gun on their truck. To a thief the browning sticker means you have guns worth the risk of breaking in.

What still works?



What safe did they get the gun in your car out of?

Call me crazy, but I believe that if people think you might be armed (regardless of location), they are less likely to attack you. I believe in deterrence. And I will trade an increased liklihood of a break in when the thing is believed to be empty if it means a decreased chance of assault while we are present.

Just one angle I use to look at it.

Not too much danger involved stealing your gun out of your vehicle when you're not there :what:

See bold. That was the only point I was making. A sticker declaring you're armed is not much of a deterrent to stealing your gun...or checking for one... out of your car if you're not present.

Not really a tattoo guy, but that is pretty dang cool.

I read Ernle Bradford's THERMOPYLAE: The Battle for the West a few years ago and it left a real impression on me. King Leonidas would be proud of that one!

The bold specifically and explicitly deals with being attacked (or not)...while you are present.

I don't know about you, but I prefer the option that doesn't include myself or my family being attacked. You don't? :what:

Pro-2nd Amendment/Pro-gun stickers on your vehicle?

No. Here in NJ there are some LEOs who seem to believe that such stickers are sufficient reason for a stop and an attempt to coerce a consent to search. I had two such encounters when I had such stickers on my truck, the second of which came very close to creating a situation which would of necessity have led to a tragic aftermath.

We cant be attacked if we arent present. :rolleyes:

The discussion was about vehicles being broken into for their guns (as you started out with asking about car gun safes being stolen).

Pickup truck plates read "NRA LF #" and the car reads "# NRA LF". (State requires at least one number to avoid higher cost "vanity" plates.)

When this pickup replaced the old one, I didn't replace the camper shell. That caused me to lose my "rolling billboard" of bumper stickers. :D

So you are NEVER present at your vehicle? :rolleyes:

Or do you peel the stickers off every time you get into the car, and put them back when you park it and leave?

Which is shortsighted and only tells half the story.

An intelligent person will realize that you are present at or in your vehicle, at times, and the stickers are likely to have an entirely different effect at that time.

Surely you realize this and are just trolling for the sake of an argument.

Apparently you cannot keep up to the standards of The High Road (in spirit).

I wont partake further, since you are narrowing your statement to a pinprick with reference to the greater argument (since that's the only way it works).

I guess I spend a LOT more time driving my vehicles than you do.

Again, I choose the option that would seem to make myself and my family less likely to be attacked.

You may choose differently, which is fine. We all have our own experiences and priorities.

I'm still looking for a "honk if you've never seen an uzi fired from a car window" sticker...

I have a vanity plate (very common in VA) with a pro-2A message that most people don't get.

I'm in CA, and vanity plates abound. I'm still wearing my TX vanity plate though: ACK IMP

The people that know what it means, oddly enough, are the people I care to talk to. No stickers though. Prefer to keep it discreet...'nuff said.
