Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Jul 21, 2012, 01:07 AM

 

New guy here.

Hi, I'm a 22 year old college student. I enjoy long walks on the beach, sunsets, and holding ha....wait what?

lol, Anyway I've been lurking this forum for a LONG time. I actually found this place from a link on a gun forum a few months back. I found it refreshing to see a place with fellow gun owning liberals. After some long time lurking, I've decided to join. It will be nice to have a forum to post on where I won't be ostracized for being a democrat. (Just try mentioning that word on Arfcom lol)


Anyway I'm happy to be here.

Oh and yes, as you can tell by my username, I have a Jeep, which I love.

14. Welcome from a fellow Jeep owner :-)

I got myself a new JK last year, too. I still have the first Jeep I bought brand new and it's almost the same age you are! Holy crap, I'm old.

5. Welcome, fellow Jeeper!

There's a few of us here, but mostly we have to hang out in the bushes and stay clear of the Priuses, etc... We can always play the union-made trump card in extremis.

7. Haha

 

I love that sign. I'd see that and think "Challenge Accepted"

Reminds me of a pic I took at the top of a mountain my buddy and I climbed. My first off roading trip.

Somebody left this at the top:



The view was good too.

6. And feel free to bring your guns. Many of us, though not all

are quite comfortable with the fact that you can actually think and still own guns.

8. I am a fellow gun owning liberal.

You won't be ostracized here for being a Democrat. But there's some folks here who will think you are worse than Dick Cheney (AKA Lord Vader) if you are a gun rights advocate like I am. My advice is to tread lightly on that issue until we've had time to get to know you better - particularly since members here have the Colorado tragedy fresh on our minds.

You might have noticed the Gungeon being mentioned. That's slang for the Gun Control & RKBA Group, where we discuss gun control laws, the Second Amendment, the use of firearms for self-defense, and the use of firearms to commit crime and violence.

Welcome aboard!

12. Guns are not my thing,

but they are popular around my neck of the woods, and I can recognize that not everyone who owns one is a right-wing crazy.
