    I have set up a Google group called VA Gun News.

    It contains many gun related news articles. Mostly impacting the VA gun owner, but also items that do not directly impact them, but might be of interest to them.

    If you want to request a subscription (and have a Google account) go to

    http://groups.google.com/group/va-gu...ubscribe?hl=en

    If not, email me at techshowsat yahoo.com and I will add you.

    This is my first try at a Google group so there may be some bugs to work out.


    Please be patient....

    I signed up and also bailed the next day... I thought this was going to be new, inside info that I don't get from NRA, VCDL or Google. It seems like you went to Google.. setup a custom search (like GUN and VIRGINIA) and then post those stories to the group.. (One right after another I might add).

    I guess that's ok if that is what it is for, but I don't need a group to do that... besides.. I think with OCDO, VCDL, NRA and Gun Owners of America.. I think I am "full".

    my two cents.
    Carry On.

    No biggie, thanks for trying it out, but I have to ask...
    Where do you think VA-Alert gets many of its news articles?

    Busy days can be as many as 50 emails....like any good newsgroup....it is high volume.

    I like the idea I can go to one place and find these stories. I like not having to set up the RSS feeds and get them in MY inbox, and I like that they're annotated as to state. Not only that, I see which are "news" and which are commentary.

    I like to read blogs to read analysis, interpretation, and corollaries to news items; the beauty of this group is it's just the story (which I can then move to my blog, or re-transmit, etc.)

    Thanks, pourshot.
