Our purpose is deadly serious, but we often wander off into levity in the discussion. We just don't worry about it as long as it doesn't get out of hand.
Just IMHO, those who might see "gun nuts" often have an agenda. Not much we can do about that in most cases....
Please understand that this isn't an attack on you. Sure looks like you're "with us".... I have the power to ban somebody, but the last time I did that because he just cranked me off, I got yelled at

offensive to result in punishment. Attacks on "members" don't get that kind of protection.
In any event, please stick around and join the fray. If you see something you don't agree with, tell somebody (or me). Meantime, don't be afraid to comment, answer, or ask questions.
