New Members And Our Purpose

Looking at the recent numbers of registrations over the past several days we're having a sudden influx of new members here.
Given the recent COVID-19 scare, services closing down and general panic there has been a large upsurge of people buying firearms for self defense.

I'd like to take this moment to remind us all of two key purposes of Calguns, education and the growth of both 2A and the shooting sports.

Some of these new members will be first time firearms owners, looking for information, assistance or even training.
They may not know all the things we've learned over the years, they may have been fed years of misinformation or be shocked at the laws we have to abide by.

They WILL ask questions or post incorrect information they've been given that you've answered or debunked a million times before.

I understand it is repetitive or tedious to answer the same questions over and over and to have to counter the misinformation or even outright lies that people have been fed over the years.

However every single one of us was once new to the shooting sports, dealing with California's gun laws and understanding the Second Amendment. We all had someone or several someones that helped us along even if it was a parent when we were young.

I'm asking you to be patient with our new members, help them where you can and don't fall back on the easy answer 'use the search'. For whatever reason we will have new members who have made the decision to take personal responsibility for their safety and that of their family, something we all understand and agree on.

Some may ask a few questions and move on, some may stick around and if we're really lucky some will come to understand the value and importance of out inherent right to keep and bear arms and join the efforts to protect it.
And that is how we win.
