    I was just at a major retailer's website, and as I always do, my first search was for "firearms" and "gun safes." ;) (they not only log these, but your first search when you go to a major retailing website actually has more influence than any poll).

    I'm looking for suggestions of other little things like that, which really do have an effect.

    We can't all show up at Obama rallys with ARs :what::evil:, so I wanted to collect ideas of little actions, that if repeated by thousands of us, will move the culture back to appreciating and accepting firearms.

    We can also make sure we spell it right - too many times I've seen people online and elsewhere spell it as 'ammendment'.

    Here are some ideas:

    -Be conscious of the Second Amendment. We have a lot of new gun owners recently. My money is on many of the new gun owners being anti-gun when push comes to shove. You aren't pro-gun just because you own a gun. So, have a friendly conversation about the Second Amendment with a new gun owner just to make them conscious of the bigger picture.

    -Be conscious of non-gun owners looking at you. People who are unfamiliar with guns will formulate their opinion about guns based on how they see you handling a gun. So, practice the Four Safety Rules always because people are watching you, among other obvious reasons. Don't be a dick basically.

    -Join a pro-gun organization. This is a little thing. When we think of all the actions we should take to protect our 2A freedoms, joining a pro-gun group doesn’t even register on the scale. I recommend the NRA and the SAF. I respect each group’s leadership and actions they have taken recently around the country.

    -Take a friend to the range with you. Debates don't convert people. Fun, safe outings at the range do convert people.

    Here in Seattle, the unpopular and outgoing major is proposing that guns no longer be allowed carried in several public venues, including sports venues, rec centers, etc.

    I plan to protest, in person if possible. It's another scenario of banning guns somewhere and enabling the bgs to walk in and shoot the unarmed. It doesnt stop the bgs.
