I work in cybersecurity and have been at my employer for about 9 years. I am in the USA, in a "blue" Democratic leaning state.
Today several new team members joined other teams within the larger cybersecurity division, and had a team building event where members introduce themselves.
One topic everyone else disclosed was their hobbies. One of my hobbies I disclosed is competitive practical shooting, which obviously involves owning a firearm. I own a single firearm and am a responsible owner, following all laws.
Political attitudes towards firearms and the 2A tends to be a sensitive topic in the United States. I noted no other employee disclosed a hobby that could be deemed controversial or sensitive.
Addenum I did not say this, but the single firearm I own is a remington 870 shotgun, semiauto 20 gauge. This is a popular gun owned by civilians for recreational shooting, well within the Heller standards per US courts. Again, nothing extreme either in type of gun or number of guns. Practical shooting and multi gun are fully sanctioned by IPSC , the sports global governing body, and for which I am active in. Nothing here says rogue or anything.
As I dont know the new colleagues well, was this too much disclosure and hence a mistake? I dont want to make others uncomfortable
