4. You don't maybe, it is time to start re-routing just a few of these threads

to the gungeon? I mean seriously, the lady who shot some guy in the face while in her attic qualifies as "big news". Come on, it has turned into a pissing match. One out of every six threads is actually substantive and deserves to be in GD.

5. God forbid we let you all talk about something which a bunch of people want to talk about.

And which just happens to be a huge issue right now.

What is this, a discussion forum????

6. It is your board. Your rules.

I respect that, but I still think it is getting a bit out of hand and maybe we could tighten things up a bit.

7. Frankly, I appreciate all the information about this issue.

Granted, some of the discussions can turn snarky and unproductive, but there is not an issue I care about more passionately. I feel a responsibility to be aware of all the proposals, resistance and ramifications as I made a promise to myself after Sandy Hook to do all I could to support efforts to stop the madness.

11. If you actually sort through those OPs I guarantee you

less than 1/3 of them have ANYTHING to do with policy, and are just 1) red meat for the gun control side or 2) red meat for the gun nuts.

The Jeff Foxworthy-esque "You might be a gunnut" thread sure has lots to offer

(not that mine is anything to write home about)

10. It was starting to ease up

But the NRA meeting with Biden and the Yeager gun permit thing increased it again.

OTOH, we haven't talked about it "seriously" for awhile. We've been all told it wasn't "appropriate".

Let's consider it making up for lost time.

14. Just mine that I can see.

However, I did not whine, I did the Gun Dance and let out a little Rebel Yell circa Billy Idol.
