do you advertise your gun ownership?
Did a search for a thread like this, couldent find it but it could have been the wording I used...Do you advertise your gun ownership I.E. a NRA sticker on your car. Or a sign that looks like a brinks home security sign in your front yard that says, "protected by the second amendment" or some other stickers or sign around your home/vehicle there are a million... I never have as I feel it advertises to folks "there are guns here! Come steal them when you know were not home" am I being overly paranoid??? As I have a growing collection of stickers on top of my safe!

I dont think you are paranoid. I used to have some stickers on the car, but not anymore.
I only had the stickers when I was in college, just because it was fun to see peoples faces when they walked by the car and read the stickers.

I do not, no stickers, signs etc on my property of vehicle...I don't think that's a good idea personally, as you said, it's an advertisement for possible theft.
At first I had reservations about posting shooting related comments etc on FB, but recently I've decided I'm ok with it, everyone I'm friends with I know personally and I have no problem with them knowing I support 2A and enjoy firearms related activities.
My FB is locked so people who are not friends with me can't see any content.MA LTC-A Restrictions: NONE

I have one of the plain "NES" oval stickers on my car, which only means anything to other NES folks. No other gun-related "advertising" on my house, car, etc. I don't think it's paranoid to avoid advertising, for exactly the reason you mention.

My cousin has a "body piercing by glock" and a "got sig?" sticker on his truck.
Me personally, nope.Amateurs do it until they get it right.
Professionals do it until they don't get it wrong.

I'd prefer to spend my money on the hobby itself, rather than advertising it, even if I fancy myself a regular Don Draper. ;)

No.Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” (Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764)

I've had a simple small NRA sticker on all my vehicles for nearly 30 years. Beyond that, nothing else, outside or visible from outside my house.
