• We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.
  • The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.

It is much better off than Gun Rights Media. For some reason, they seem to have become a dumping ground for spammers and other junk posts that have nothing to do with firearms.
Must have a larger readership making the effort worthwhile. Not so among us dozen.

jthunter, i believe the site is DOA and it wasn't the virus...this is the same quagmire that besieged the colorado gun forum...

shame someone didn't pull the plug and let it fade into everyone's memory.

There was a site that DID fade away several years ago called "ICarry.org". It was one of the ones I started at 10-12 years ago but it became inactive about 5 years ago. I would check in a couple of times a month and see if anybody had posted anything new but it finally disappeared about 18 months ago.

If this forum fades into the sunset a lot of excellent case-law will be lost. And those that have lots of this knowledge will be inaccessible. But based on the participation at this point on this forum I guess you could say this forum is already DOA.

I just came across a SC case that said :
Constitutional rights thus implicitly protect those closely related acts necessary to their exercise. "There comes a point ... at which the regulation of action intimately and unavoidably connected with [a right] is a regulation of [the right] itself." Hill v. Colorado, 530 U.S. 703, 745, 120 S.Ct. 2480, 147 L.Ed.2d 597 (2000) (Scalia, J., dissenting). The right to keep and bear arms, for example, "implies a corresponding right to obtain the bullets necessary to use them," Jackson v. City and County of San Francisco, 746 F.3d 953, 967 (C.A.9 2014) (internal quotation marks omitted), and "to acquire and maintain proficiency in their use," Ezell v. Chicago, 651 F.3d 684, 1098, 704 (C.A.7 2011). See District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 617-618, 128 S.Ct. 2783, 171 L.Ed.2d 637 (2008) (citing T. Cooley, General Principles of Constitutional Law 271 (2d ed. 1891) (discussing the implicit right to train with weapons)); United States v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174, 180, 59 S.Ct. 816, 83 L.Ed. 1206 (1939) (citing 1 H. Osgood, The American Colonies in the 17th Century 499 (1904) (discussing the implicit right to possess ammunition)); Andrews v. State, 50 Tenn. 165, 178 (1871) (discussing both rights). Without protection for these closely related rights, the Second Amendment would be toothless. Likewise, the First Amendment "right to speak would be largely ineffective if it did not include the right to engage in financial transactions that are the incidents of its exercise." McConnell v. Federal Election Comm'n, 540 U.S. 93, 252, 124 S.Ct. 619, 157 L.Ed.2d 491 (2003) (Scalia, J., concurring in part, concurring in judgment in part, and dissenting in part).
See Luis v. US, 136 S. Ct. 1083 - Supreme Court (2016).

I believe that there is a difference in contribution beyond participating. Participation does bring in click profits though.
