It's time for the gun threads to be sent to the Gun Forum

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by aikoaiko (a host of the General Discussion forum).

There's a Meta thread that deals with this in which a majority support ending the temporary restrictions on gun threads in General Discussion.

The entire 'debate' has come full circle; nothing new is being added.

The recent influx of concerned hunters; now posting photos and videos of their blood sport...

There needs to be credible new information in the gun control debate for a GD thread to be posted to the General Discussion forum; the hosts and Admin need to have a discussion; soon, and hammer out the details and allow GD to return to it's previous state.

3. Yes, please.

Most of the "discussion" in the zillions of such threads has been utterly worthless.

4. And Meta threads to Meta!

I kid.

I personally only support re-banishing non-topical gun discussion to the Gungeon if we then DELETE THE GUNGEON.

5. What about posting news about gun deaths.

I think they are ok for GD if only to show this is a daily occurrence and not rare like the gun proponents argue.

11. No one has said gun deaths are rare.

What has been said, correctly, is that gun deaths are on a decline, 60% of gun deaths are suicides, and deaths by assault weapons are rare. You can call it NRA "talking points" all you want, those are the facts.

16. Tell that to the 513 moms grieving in (just) Chicago

Sure, statistical decreases sound so encouraging... till it's someone you know.

6. I agree.

And made that suggestion in Meta 2 weeks ago, which was panned. Might as well get rid of the gungeon instead, since gun discussion is now a part of GD.

13. The task force activities would certianly fall under new credible information

worthy of discussion; in my opinion.

Obviously trolling within the thread would need to be kept at bay and the discussion kept on point; however I feel that this topic could most certainly belong in General Discussion.

15. Biden is going to make his recommendations soon

Guns are in the news right now and likely will be in the news for some time. Most people seem to be saying we need to have the discussion on guns, we can't have that conversation if we banish it to a forum dominated by a vocal few gun lovers.

18. I agree 100%. "Nothing new is being added"

If there is some major news then it can be posted. Other than that, send the rest back where it belongs.

General gun threads were allowed in GD for only a week after Aurora. It's now been three since Newtown.
